5.   Settlement Pattern Review update

 

Committee Comment

Keith Tallentire, Cameron Wood, John Scallan and Sarah Oliver presented on this item.

·    The Committee endorsed holding a series of workshops to give strategic direction on more specific aspects of the project.

·    There was concern that the impact on Greater Christchurch population growth beyond the boundaries of the Urban Development Strategy (UDS) might have been underestimated.

·    The Committee agreed that the Settlement Pattern Review project (SPR) must be interconnected with planning for fixed public transport corridors to support intensification. The Committee discussed successful examples of intensification in other cities being linked to quality transport routes.

·    It was noted that the growing demand for rentals needs to be considered in the supporting data, and it would also be sensible to consider social housing.

·    The Committee emphasised the importance of understanding market expectations and the need to engage with private developers. The Committee also discussed the impact that household size has on local amenity and transport networks, citing examples of intensification in Riccarton which has resulted in demand for residential car parking far exceeding supply.

·    The Committee discussed how population growth has far outpaced projections made when the original Urban Development Strategy was adopted, and discussed whether this could continue. Staff responded that the current projections are the best available based on existing evidence, but will be updated every three years to adjust for changing circumstances.

·    The Committee requested a more explicit comparison between the 2007 UDS population projections and the current actual position.

·    It was acknowledged that existing infrastructure is not designed to encourage growth of settlements on Maori Reserve Land. This needs to be examined further.

 

 

Committee Resolved GCPC/2017/00011

Part C

That the Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee:

1.         Notes the implementation work underway to complete the Settlement Pattern Review.

Mayor Sam Broughton/Councillor Peter Skelton                                                                                           Carried

 

 

6.   Naming and promotion of the Partnership

Committee Resolved GCPC/2017/00012

8.   Travel Demand Management Update Presentation

 

Committee Comment

James Young and Tom McNaughton presented on this item.

During the discussion the following points were raised:

·    Local tertiary institutions are being targeted as part of the project.

·    Partnership staff are working on improving the communication and marketing of this project and are working with an independent social media consultant.

·    Jim Harland cited the Urban Development Strategy Travel Demand Management strategy from 2009, and suggested it would be interesting to refer back to that document and have an updated version. This might avoid duplicating work.

·    Partner staff do work with schools and communities on Travel Demand Management programmes, but capacity is limited.

Part C
