1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to provide further information to the Banks Peninsula Community Board on the Akaroa Pedestrian Safety and Accessibility Improvements report which was first considered by the Board at its meeting on 26 June 2017.

1.2       At that meeting the Board resolved to let the report lie on the table and request that staff provide further advice, including advice from heritage staff, on:

                      1.   The use of tactile pavers coloured other than yellow.

                      2.   Ways in which parking loss can be further mitigated.

                      3.   Other ways in which pedestrian safety may be improved in Akaroa.

                      4.   The impact of the proposed changes on the Akaroa Historic Area in respect of incremental change to the streetscape.”

1.3       Staff have addressed the request for further advice in a memorandum which is attached as Attachment B.

1.4       The purpose of the original report was to advise the Banks Peninsula Community Board on the outcome of community consultation, and to request that it approve the installation of a build out, kerb cut downs, changing a Give Way control to a Stop control, line marking, and installation of No Stopping restrictions at existing crossing locations to meet current standards for safe sight lines. Please refer to Attachment A.

The original report continues:

Origin of Report

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy. At a local level the decision is of a medium significance.

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025):

4.1.1   Activity: Road Operations

·     Level of Service: 10.0.33 Reduce risk to customers using the network via a targeted programme of safety improvements at high risk locations locations.

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

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Upgrade six intersections with tactile pavers and where applicable line marking and no stopping restrictions including one intersection with a kerb build out, and upgrade one intersection with additional line marking and associated 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:

·     Installation of tactile pavers making pedestrian crossing locations safer and more accessible to all user groups.

·     Installation of the kerb build out reduces the crossing distance, increases visibility between pedestrians and motorists, and creates a clearly defined safe pedestrian crossing location.

·     Installation of no stopping restrictions creates appropriate lines of sight at pedestrian crossing locations ensuring safe sight line distances for the speed of traffic.

·     Installation of white lines will provide clear delineation between the road and the footpath at intersections.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include: 

·     Location 1 Rue Lavaud/Rue Viard- loss of 16 parking spaces, of which 8 are not currently legal to park in.

·     Location 2 Rue Lavaud/Rue Brittan- loss of 2 parking spaces.

·     Location 6 Rue Jolie- loss of 4 parking spaces.

 

4.4       Community Feedback

·     Initial consultation was undertaken with the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board and the Akaroa Design and Appearance Advisory Committee. Feedback from these meetings was considered to develop the plan taken out for consultation.

·     Community engagement for this project was undertaken from Tuesday 18 April to Wednesday 10 May 2017.

·     A total of 600 leaflets were hand delivered to Akaroa homes and businesses with a close proximity to the seven intersections proposed for safety and accessibility upgrades. The leaflet was also sent to 87 key stakeholders and 918 absentee owners.

·     During the consultation period 55 responses were received. Of those 55 Responses: 4 Respondents did not indicate a preference either way to support or not support the proposal, 16 Respondents support the proposed plan, 17 Respondents generally support the proposed plan but indicated they have some concerns, 18 Respondents do not support the plan.

 

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1      

·   Akaroa has a 2013 census population of 1,857 with businesses numbering around 340, and in the summer season in excess of 5000 tourists a day.

·   Akaroa has a resident and visiting demographic which makes the implementation of current pedestrian standards for intersections and pedestrian crossings desirable to create an environment that is safe and accessible to all user groups. Based on the 2013 census the median age for Akaroa was 55 and 31% of the population was over 65 years of age, compared to a median age of 39 and 15% of the population over 65 years of age for Christchurch.

·   The large numbers of elderly tourists that visit Akaroa in conjunction with many other locations in New Zealand makes it important to follow current national guidelines when implementing tactile paving. This will create a national consistency leading to clarity and understanding throughout their visit to New Zealand. This will equally apply to the many domestic tourists visiting Akaroa.

·   Akaroa has been recognised as a priority location to receive funding to upgrade existing intersections and pedestrian crossings in line with Council policy to upgrade intersections and crossings to the standards set out in NZTA RTS 14.

 

5.2       Proposal

·   It is proposed to upgrade the following Akaroa intersections:

·     Rue Jolie/Beach Road, install tactile pavers.

6.   Option 1 – Install Pedestrian Safety and Accessibility Improvements. (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install tactile pavers, kerb build out, kerb cut downs, Stop control, parking restrictions and line marking.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low which is consistent with section 2 of this report.  At a local level the decision is of a medium significance.

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       A large amount of written feedback was received through the submission process. Feedback was categorised into themes and the main ones are identified below along with the repetition number and project team response:

6.5.1   Proposed road markings and signage are not compatible with heritage character (12)     

Team response – The improvements are required for pedestrian safety and accessibility, and will be a minor component of the overall visual field which has evolved over time through additions such as overhead power lines, shifting pavement edge alignments, materials used, and evolving uses of street scape.

6.5.2   Do not support loss of car parks as this will impact businesses and add to congestion (11)

Team response – As outlined in the Parking Strategy, the use of kerbside road space for safety measures and pedestrian facilities has priority before any allocation of these areas for parking. Some underutilised on street parking exists on side streets. Motorist directional signage is to be installed indicating off street parking opportunities.

6.5.3   This is a waste of expenditure and ratepayers money (8)

Team response – This project is funded from the following three budgets Pedestrian Priority 2017, Pedestrian Safety Initiatives 2017, and Tactile Pavers 2017. The project meets the criteria for each of these areas of funding and is in line with Council Policy to upgrade crossings and intersections for safety and accessibility for all user groups.

6.5.4   Please renew the footpath access up to Pompellier House at the same time (4)

Team response – This path has been assessed by the CCC Maintenance Team and is considered fit for purpose.

6.5.5   Build a park and ride system at outskirts of town and/or ban campervans (4)    

Team response -This request is outside the scope of this project. In general, the demand for parking is not considered sufficient to warrant the provision and funding of a park and ride system. Organisers of large events may wish to consider this as an option as part of their events planning. There are limited options for large numbers of vehicles to park on the approach to Akaroa. Campervans are permitted on roads as they are legal vehicles, and are in keeping with Akaroa as a tourist destination. Campervans are required to park legally and considerately. Directional signage is to be installed indicating off street parking opportunities.

6.5.6   The problem for pedestrians is the volume is too great for the footpath width forcing them onto the road into more danger. This proposal does not resolve the real problem (4)

Team response - In some places in Akaroa, on occasions, the pedestrian volume is relatively high. Pedestrians are not forced onto the road, but have been observed choosing to do so rather than waiting.

6.5.7   Campervans and large vehicles in the town are a problem (3)

Team response – This is outside the scope of this project. Campervans are permitted on roads as they are legal vehicles, and are in keeping with Akaroa as a tourist destination. Large vehicles are also permitted, and are required to service Akaroa. These vehicles are required to park legally and considerately. Additional directional signage is to be installed indicating off street parking opportunities.

6.5.8   This is a good start (applaud) at improving safety for all (3)          

Team response – Thank you for your submission and taking an interest in this project.

6.5.9   Proposal is not justified (low accident history) (3)

Team response – One accident with a child has been recorded in the last five years. This data does not include unreported minor incidences or near misses. The purpose of the pedestrian improvements are to create a safer and more accessible environment for all user groups.

6.5.10    Implement a lower speed limit for all Akaroa township e.g. 20km/hr (3)

Team response – This is outside the scope of this project. Operating speeds in Akaroa are generally lower than the posted speed limit in areas and times of high traffic and pedestrian activity. An area wide speed limit reduction is not being considered at this stage, however may be investigated further in areas such as Beach Road.

6.5.11    Council should invest in provision of off street parking somewhere (2)

Team response – In general, the demand for parking is not considered sufficient to warrant the provision and funding of additional off-street parking. Organisers of large events may wish to consider this as an option as part of their events planning and traffic management plans. Some underutilised on street parking on side roads exists, and directional signage is to be installed indicating off street parking opportunities.

6.5.12    Keep kerb cut downs and buildouts to a minimum (2)

Team response – Buildouts and kerb cut downs will be used only as appropriate to create a safer environment that is more accessible to all user groups.

6.5.13    Overall plan is required instead of piecemeal approach (2)      

Team response – Pedestrian improvements have been considered across a range of locations, priorities and budgets in Akaroa. This project addresses some of the key intersections with regard to pedestrian safety and accessibility for all user groups.

6.5.14    Less sandwich/advertising boards would improve pedestrian safety and lessen hazards (2)

Team response – This is outside the scope of this project, however it is to be progressed as part of the Public Places Bylaw review.

 

6.6       A letter has been sent to all submitters advising of the outcome of the consultation, including details of the Community Board meeting, and how they can speak to their submission if they wish.  Also included in this letter was a link to the feedback received, decision making process and Community Board report.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies to raise safety and accessibility at intersections and pedestrian crossings to meet standards set out in NZTA RTS 14 Guidelines for facilities for blind and vision impaired pedestrians.

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - This project is being carried out under the  Safety Improvements Programmes with the total cost estimate for this project being $92,000

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Covered under the Area Maintenance Contract and the effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.9       Funding source - 2017 CAPEX Tactile Pavers, Pedestrian Priority and Pedestrian Safety Initiatives Programs

Legal Implications

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

6.11    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 parking restrictions, traffic control devices, traffic islands and pedestrian crossings.

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    Not Applicable

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies  - Approval by Community Board of elements under delegation

6.15    Implementation timeframe - Construction to be started beginning FY18.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·     All intersections will meet NZTA RTS 14 standards, this being especially important for Akaroa due to the local population demographic, and visitor numbers and demographic.

·     Installation of tactile pavers making crossing locations safer and more accessible to all user groups.

·     Installation of a kerb build out reduces the crossing distance, increases visibility between pedestrians and motorists, and creates a clearly defined safe crossing location.

·     Installation of No Stopping restrictions creates appropriate lines of sight at crossing locations ensuring safe sight line distances for the speed of traffic.

·     Installation of white lines will provide clear delineation between road and path at intersections where the carriageway and path are at the same level.

6.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Loss of 14 legal parking spaces across the seven locations.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Akaroa stays as it is.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low 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       This option is the status quo and was not consulted on.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.6       This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

7.6.1   Inconsistency – this option is inconsistent with Council’s plans and policies to increase safety and accessibility at intersections and crossing points to meet standards set out in NZTA RTS 14 Guidelines for facilities for blind and vision impaired pedestrians.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation - None

Legal Implications

7.8       None

Risks and Mitigations    

7.9       This option will not address the accessibility issues that exist in Akaroa. It will not address the known safety issues around pedestrian use of intersections, and therefore the risk of a crash and the increase in severity of a crash remain.

Implementation

7.10    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable.

7.11    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.12    The advantages of this option include:

·   No loss of parking

7.13    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   This option does not address known accessibility and safety issues in Akaroa.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Banks Peninsula Community Board to consider reconvening the Akaroa Treated Wastewater Reuse Options Working Party (ATWROWP) and reviewing the Terms of Reference for the Working Party.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being provided to fulfil a request from the Banks Peninsula Community Board at its 9 October 2017 meeting, “that staff bring more information to the next Board meeting regarding the reconvening of the Akaroa Treated Wastewater Reuse Options Working Party and its Terms of Reference”.

1.3       Proposed amended Terms of Reference are attached as Attachment A.  Proposed changes are highlighted in red font.

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 completing an assessment matrix.

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

 

1.   Staff Recommendations

That the Banks Peninsula Community Board:

1.         Agree to reconvene the Akaroa Treated Wastewater Reuse Options Working Party.

2.         Adopt amended Terms of Reference for the Akaroa Treated Wastewater Reuse Options Working Party (as attached) as at 30 October 2017.

3.         Request that staff arrange replacements as appropriate for any vacancies on the Working Party that require filling.

 

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       The Board has been asked by staff to reconvene the ATWROWP so that Board members, community members and Rūnanga representatives can consider existing and possible additional options for the reuse of treated wastewater in Akaroa, based on updated data.

3.2       The Board has asked staff to supply information to support it making a decision on whether to reconvene the Working Party.

 

 

 

 

4.   Context/Background

4.1       The ATWROWP was established in January 2017 to “collaborate with the community and engage on community concerns about the Akaroa Treated Wastewater Disposal Project”.

4.2       The Working Party met from February to April 2017 and agreed on a Joint Statement on the matters set out under its Objectives, prior to a broader community consultation process. 

4.3       Since then, further technical information relating to wastewater flows, has become available which could have a significant impact on the size and cost of the options previously considered.

4.4       The Environment Court, where the proposed Akaroa Wastewater disposal is the subject of appeal, has approved a request from the Council to have a revised timeframe for consultation and decision making on alternatives to a harbour outfall for the Akaroa Wastewater.  The Council now has until 25 May 2018 to provide a progress report back to the court.
