4.1.1   Activity: Road Operations

·     Level of Service: 10.0.6 Improve Road Safety: Reduce the number of reported crashes on the network Optimise Operational Performance

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Install No Stopping Restrictions (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Removes illegal parking.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None.

 

5.   Context/Background

Information

5.1       Blair Avenue is a local road off Papanui Road.  It is a no exit road with the main southern railway line blocking access to the west.  Therefore, Papanui Road is the only entry/exit point for drivers using Blair Avenue.

5.2       The first section of Blair Avenue is commercial, with Harcourts and the KFC entry point.  The rest of Blair Avenue is residential.

5.3       Presently the area on Blair Avenue between KFC and the shops driveway is just over 4 metres in length.  A car is required to be parked 1 metre back from a driveway, which only leaves 2 metres to park in.  This is obviously too short for a car to park in.

5.4       It is proposed to install a no stopping restriction at this location to remove parking.  This is a highly parked area with high turnover due to the commercial nature of the area.  No stopping restrictions are proposed as they have a high compliance rate. 

6.   Option 1 – Install No Stopping Restriction (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install ‘No Stopping’ restriction on the north side of Blair Avenue as shown on Attachment A.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       There has been no consultation undertaken for this scheme.  The area is too small for a standard car to park in and if a car does park, it encroaches on the driveways on either side.  This is a heavily parked commercial area and motorists are tempted to use road space they think is a potential park with less consideration to compliance with road user rules and consideration for other road users.  The proposed no stopping is the best solution to remove parking in this location.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.6       This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - $50

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – covered under the area maintenance contract and effect will be minimal to overall asset.

6.9       Funding source – Traffic Operations budget

Legal Implications

6.10    Part 1, Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.11    The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.12    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004. 

Risks and Mitigations  

6.13    None identified.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies  - community board approval

6.15    Implementation timeframe – approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   Removes illegal parking;

6.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   None.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing     

Option Description

7.1       Blair Avenue will remain as is.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.

7.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.5       See sections 6.5.

1.3       Staff agree that this environment lends itself to traffic calming devices.  However through the LTP process, Council decided not to fund the local area traffic calming budget.  Hence, staff did not consult on this option.

1.4       Staff reviewed the speed limit on Riverlea Estate Drive and consulted on a speed limit change which is funded through the traffic operations budget. 

2.   Significance

2.1       The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessment of the scale of the impacts and the number of people affected by the preferred option.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Papanui-Innes Community Board recommend that Council:

1.         Approve that pursuant to Section 5 of the Christchurch City Council Speed Limits Bylaw 2010, speed limits be revoked and set as listed below in clauses 1.a to 1.b and include the resulting changes in the Christchurch City Register of Speed Limits & Speed Limit Maps:

a.         Revoke the 50 kilometres per hour speed limit of Riverlea Estate Drive from a point 330 metres south of its intersection with Kainga Road to the end of Riverlea Estate Drive. 

b.         Approve that the speed limit of Riverlea Estate Drive be set at 30 kilometres per hour from a point 330 metres south of its intersection with Kainga Road to the end of Riverlea Estate Drive, in accordance with Attachment A.

2.         Approve that the speed limit changes listed above in clauses 1.a to 1.b come into force on 29 September 2017. 

 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan  (2015 - 2015)

4.1.1   Activity: Road Operations:

·     Level of Service: 10.0.6 Improve Road Safety: Reduce the number of reported crashes on the network

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·   Option 1 – Change the speed limits of Riverlea Estate Drive to 30km/h

·   Option 2 – Install Local Area Traffic Calming

·   Option 3 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Sets the speed limit of Riverlea Estate Drive at a level that is appropriate for the nature of the road.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     It does not make any physical changes to the road that would ensure low operating speeds. 

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Riverlea Estate Drive is the access road to Riverlea Estate, which is a small riverside settlement.  Riverlea Estate Drive also offers access to the Waimakariri River for anglers and rowers.  The existing carriageway is 6 metres wide with no footpath or kerb and channel.

5.2       The existing 50km/h default urban speed limit does not reflect the nature of this settlement.  Pedestrians choose to either walk along the berm or on the road and cars are often parked on the grass berm.

5.3       Speed counts were undertaken at three locations on Riverlea Estate Drive.  The range for the 85th percentile speed was 44.3km/h to 48.6km/h and the range for the mean speed was 35.0km/h to 38.4km/h.

5.4       The proposed speed limit of 30km/h will increase the safety for vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and reduce the risk of a crash in this area.  It will also better reflect the speed road users should be travelling at and it will make Riverlea Estate Drive consistent with other riverside and beachside settlements (eg. Pines Beach).  This helps make this road self-explaining to road users.

5.5       The initial request from a resident was for traffic calming devices to be installed and this is reflected in the consultation, with 8 submitters specifically mentioning installing speed humps.  However there is no funding source for local area traffic calming measures in this financial year and therefore a speed limit reduction scheme was progressed.

Community Consultation

5.6       Consultation on the Riverlea Estate Drive proposed speed limit change was undertaken from 19 June 2017 to 10 July 2017. The submission for asked submitters to indicate whether yes, they generally support the proposal, no they generally do not support the proposal or yes they generally support the proposal but have some concerns.

5.7       Approximately 234 consultation leaflets (refer Attachments B and C) were hand delivered to properties along Riverlea Estate Drive and the immediately surrounding streets, including 34 absentee land owners. These leaflets were also posted and emailed to 197 key stakeholders. The project was also posted on the Council’s “Have your say” webpage.

5.8       At the close of the consultation 35 submissions were received with 28 (80%) generally supporting the proposal, 4 (11%) generally supporting the proposal but with some concerns and 3 (9%) not generally supporting the proposal.

 

 

 

5.9       All submissions with names and addresses have been provided to the Papanui-Innes Community Board members. All submissions without names and addresses are available publicly online.

6.   Option 1 – Change the speed limits of Riverlea Estate Drive to 30km/h (preferred)

       Option Description

6.1       The preferred option involves lowering the speed limit of Riverlea Estate Drive from 50km/h to 30km/h, as shown on Attachment.

6.2       Should the Council decide to fund the local area traffic calming budget in the future then it is likely that the addition of speed humps in combination with a reduced speed limit will provide the best solution for Riverlea Estate Drive.

Significance

6.3       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       At the close of the consultation 35 submissions were received with 28 (80%) generally supporting the proposal, 4 (11%) generally supporting the proposal but with some concerns and 3 (9%) not generally supporting the proposal.

6.6       For those who indicated that they generally supported the proposal to lower the speed limit, the most common comments were about:

Themes from those who generally support the proposal

6.7       The common themes around supporting the proposal to lower the speed limit relate to including speed bumps, comment around the previous speed limit, requests for other items and the location of the signage/road markings. The project team comments in relation to these are as follows (where relevant).

6.8       Including speed bumps

There were 5 submitters who commented on including speed bumps in the proposal.

“I have had close calls with speeding vehicles I would like to see speed bumps considered in this proposal as they work well in other areas” Submitter #4238.

Speed humps have been considered for the area. There is no funding to install them this financial year.

6.9       Previous speed limit

There were 4 submitters who commented on the limit in this area previously being 30km per hour.

The speed limit around Riverlea Estate Drive used to be 30 km/h…” Submitter #3518. 

Riverlea Estate Drive used to be a private road and on a private road you can set your own speed limit. When Council took over this road it came under our urban area designation and therefore had a default speed limit of 50km/h.

6.10    Requests for other items

There were three submitters who requested further items as part of this proposal.  These requests included a big speed limit sign at the entrance to Riverlea Estate that also advised of the presence of children in the area, paths (to create separation from the road and front of houses) and kerbing (to assist with flooding).

“The major concern is the lack of separation between the carriageway and the front of homes, particularly if they step out in between cars directly in front of cars which have been witnessed as travelling at a speed unsafe for the area”  Submitter #3094

The speed limit sign at the start of the 30km/h limit will be a speed limit threshold sign, which has the speed limit sign on a larger backing board.  The words ‘Riverlea Estate’ will also be written on the sign.

There are no plans to install formed footpaths along Riverlea Estate Drive.

6.11    Location of the signage and road markings

There were 2 submitters who made comments about where the signage should be located.

“The 30 km sign should be painted on the road at the beginning of Riverlea Estate Drive as well as signage” Submitter #3388.

“Would it be possible to have a 30 km/h sign on a post near the corner?  Just before the bend by 142 Riverlea Estate Drive they speed around that corner” Submitter #3387.

A 30km/h sign can be painted at the speed limit change point.  Instead of additional 30km/h signs we are proposing the painted 30km/h.  It is hoped this will make the speed limit more prominent as the markings are actually on the road surface.

6.12    For those who indicated that they generally supported the proposal to lower the speed limit, but had some concerns the most common comments were about:

Themes from those who generally support the proposal, but have some concerns

6.13    The common themes around supporting the proposal to lower the speed limit relate to including speed bumps, location of the signage and requests for more items. The project team comments in relation to these are as follows (where relevant).

6.14    Including speed bumps

There were 2 submitters who commented on including speed bumps in the proposal.

“What would ensure reduced speed is SPEED BUMPS – seems the obvious solution” Submitter #3676.

Please refer to section 6.7 of this report for the project team comments.

6.15    Location of the signage and road markings

There was one submitter who made comments relating to the location of signage and road markings. 

“I do not agree with the roads being painted.  Signs on entry and exit and maybe at corners would be sufficient” Submitter #3386

The 30km/h painted on the road is to remind drivers of the speed limit, especially when exiting private property without going past a 30km/h sign.

6.16    Requesting more items

There was one submitter who made comments requesting more items which included parking on one side of the road and moving the 80 km signage on Kainga Road.

“Please could we have parking on one side of the road?  In the “loop” of R.E. Drive most homes now have 2 vehicles, so there is lots of traffic and not a lot of room on this stretch” Submitter #3583.

Riverlea Estate Drive is an unmarked road and as such parking is permitted on both sides of the road.  However, since it is a narrow road, motorists should be aware that they need to park as far to the left as reasonably possible and they need to be parked in such a way that they do not restrict access along the road.

Themes from those who do not generally support the proposal

6.17    The common themes around not generally supporting the proposal to lower the speed limit relate to including speed bumps, changes not required and additional signage. The project team comments in relation to these are as follows (where relevant).

6.18    Including speed bumps

There was one submitter who commented on including speed bumps in the proposal.

“Would prefer some judder bars instead of 30km restrictions as I doubt that it will make any difference” Submitter #3129.

Please refer to section 6.7 of this report for the project team comments.

6.19    Changes not required

There was one submitter who commented on there not being an issue in this area, except for how cyclists use the area.

“We have lived in the area for a number of years and the only issue I have come across are the cyclists from the rowing club that do not abide by the road rules at all. This would not change with the speed limit reducing, they cover the entire road and cut corners on the wrong side of the road

Cyclists’ behaviour is very hard to control. The speed limit change is not aimed at cyclists using this are but it will help to make it safer for cyclists with motorists required to drive slower. The speed limit change was instigated by residents of Riverlea Estate Drive.

6.20    Additional signage

There was one submitter who made a comment about including additional signage.

“I note there is nothing in this proposal to put 30km/hr on that particular part of the road (access to river) that and a Give Way sign might help” Submitter #3129

The entire length of Riverlea Estate Drive is proposed to be 30km/h.  An extra 30km/h road marking can be installed along this section of the road.  It is not proposed to install a Give Way control.

6.21    The combination of feedback can then be summarised as:

 

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.22    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

6.23    Cost of Implementation – Approximately $2,500

6.24    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Covered under the area maintenance contract and effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.25    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.26    Speed limits must be set in accordance with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2003 and subsequent amendments. 

6.27    Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Speed Limits Bylaw 2010 provides Council with the authority to set speed limits by resolution.

6.28    The Council has not delegated its authority to set speed limits. 

6.29    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.30    None identified

Implementation

6.31    Implementation dependencies – Council approval.

6.32    Implementation timeframe - Approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.33    The advantages of this option include:

·   Sets the speed limit of Riverlea Estate Drive at a level that is appropriate for the nature of the road.

6.34    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It does not make any physical changes to the road that would ensure low operating speeds. 

7.   Option 2 – Install Local Area Traffic Calming

Option Description

7.1       Install vertical speed calming devices at strategic locations to ensure a low speed environment. 

7.2       This option has not been consulted on as because there is no alignment with any existing capital budget.  Council decided through the Long Term Plan processes not to fund local area traffic calming schemes (the Neighbourhood Improvement Programme) at the present time.  It is however included as an unfunded option within this report due to the alignment with the particular issues and community desire for this treatment. 

7.3       The location of the devices will have to be carefully managed to avoid the potential for traffic to go around the devices, using the grass berm, due to the existing road layout which does not include a kerb upstand.

Significance

7.4       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.5       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.6       This option was first suggested by a resident of the community who also organised a petition.

7.7       During the consultation for the speed reduction it was mentioned specifically by eight submitters.

7.8       This option is consistent with community requests for speed calming measures in Riverlea Estate Drive. 

7.9       See sections 6.26-6.29.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.10    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

7.11    Cost of Implementation – Low cost option of approximately $20,000 (cost for civil works for supply and installation of 6 speed cushions).  Full Neighbourhood Improvement Scheme project costs approximately $100,000. 

7.12    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – Covered under the area maintenance contract.

7.13    Funding source – does not align with any existing capital budgets or programmes.  Can be reviewed through the 2018-2012 Long Term Plan process.  

Legal Implications

7.14    See sections 6.26 to 6.29

Risks and Mitigations

4.   Applicant – Serena White 

4.1       A group of 14 students from the University of Canterbury are going over to Japan to spend two weeks visiting early childhood, primary and secondary schools and universities. This trip will take place from 28 September 2017 – 14 October 2017.  The point of this trip is to experience a different culture and to see how the education system differs from New Zealand’s. Serena is in her last year at Canterbury University where she has been studying for a primary teaching degree.

4.2       Serena envisions that this trip will provide her with experience in working with international students and new ideas to bring to the classroom. She also hopes that this trip will give her more knowledge to assist her to become a positive role model within the classroom.

4.3       Serena is in her final year of studying for a primary teaching degree. She also teaches dance at the Anna Lee School of Dance and is a Youth leader at Northcity Church. Serena has been a swim coach at the Graham Condon Recreation and Sports Centre and a dance teacher at Kaiapoi High. She has a passion for people and for helping children learn and grow.

4.4       Serena believes this programme and trip will provide her with valuable understanding of another culture and lots of practice working with international students. Serena also sees this as an invaluable opportunity to learn how to help students in the classroom when English is not their first language.

1.   Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is to resource the Community Board to promote a pro-active partnership approach to decision-making between the Council and Community Boards working together to achieve the best outcomes for the city with decisions being made with a good understanding of community views.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Papanui-Innes Community Board:

1.         Receive the Area Update.

 

 

 

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Community Board Plan update against outcomes

3.3       The provision of strategic, technical and procedural advice to the Community Board

3.3.1   Christchurch Youth Action Plan

The Mayor has recently announced the establishment of the Youth Initiative Fund. The Plan document has been distributed separately to members.

·    The Fund will provide $50,000 of contestable funding to support projects that will provide direct benefits to youth in Christchurch. A youth organisation, or group of youth organisations, will manage the fund and young people will determine the criteria and processes, assess applications received, and make decisions about how the money is used ad distributed.

·    The Fund will enable young people to decide for themselves where funding is best allocated, and empower them to determine their own priorities and desired outcomes. This approach ensures decision-making is made as close to the relevant community as possible, increases the likelihood of the funding being used in a way that results in benefits for young people, and provides a platform for greater engagement in local democracy.

·    This approach will be supported by a growing knowledge of participatory budgeting

·    Staff from the Community Support, Governance and Partnerships Unit will work with the youth organisations to develop the capability of the young people to manage the fund including promotion, monitoring and evaluation.

3.4       Board area Consultations/Engagement

3.4.1   Tomes Road Active School Sign

Consultation for this school sign is now closed with two responses received, both in favour. The responses also suggested a change in the location of the sign on the western end from Tomes Road to Rutland Street. This will then include the KidsFirst Kindergarten at 188 Rutland Street within the active school zone area. Installation is planned for prior to the October school holidays.

3.4.3   Urban Tree and Forest Workshops

Workshops are planned to develop a plan around trees in the city (right tree in the right place) and to ensure consistency for tree plantings and removals. These workshops will be used to gather initial issues from key stakeholders and the community.

To assist with this engagement the Board is asked to consider who from the Papanui-Innes Wards should be on the stakeholder list. The Board may wish to host a standalone community workshop at the Papanui Service Centre. The consultation team will also attend community events in the Board’s area to interact with the community and will hold stakeholder workshops.

Information on the proposed Tree and Urban Forest Plan is attached to this agenda (refer Attachment A).
