1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Banks Peninsula Community Board to recommend to Council to approve granting a lease to Fulton Hogan for use of the Allandale Transport Yard Site at 153 Governors Bay Rd.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being provided to fulfil Council resolution CNCL/2016/00223 which was to lease the site to Fulton Hogan but report back to Council if existing use rights could not be obtained.

1.3       This report also responds to the Council resolution that it: “Agree in principle that should the lease with Fulton Hogan proceed, that all or some of the rent will be made available to the Allandale Reserve Management Committee to support development and maintenance of the Allandale Domain; and that a separate report be brought to the Council as soon as possible regarding this matter.”

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.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by Justin Sims, utilising the significance assessment worksheet

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

3.   Staff Recommendations

 

That the Banks Peninsula Community Board:

Note that:

1.         In its 2016 resolution the Board required the matter to be brought back for future consideration if any of a number of conditions, including existing use rights, could not be met. 

2.         Existing use rights cannot be obtained as the historic intensity and scale cannot be proven, so this matter has been brought back to the Board for its consideration.

3.         A mechanism can be built into the lease regarding compliance with statutory or regulatory requirements.

4.         The open market value has been agreed with Fulton Hogan at $14,500 p.a. (excl GST) and that the Manager Property Consultancy can ensure the following clauses are included in the lease:

a.         The power supply located in the main building which serves a water well pump supplying the Allandale Domain is maintained at all times.

b.         The tenant complies with any statutory or regulatory requirements for the use of the land as a transport yard and if any required consents cannot be obtained, the tenant has the option to terminate the lease.

Recommends to Council

5.         Pursuant to s73 (3) of the Reserves Act 1977 to enter into a lease of part of the Allandale Reserve with Fulton Hogan Ltd at a commencement rent of $14,500 (excl GST) per annum .

6.         Authorise the Property Consultancy Manager to manage and conclude all issues and processes associated with the lease.

7.         That it allocate the full annual rental for one year excluding GST to the Banks Peninsula Community Board enabling funding to be given to the Allandale Reserve Management Committee to be spent on Allandale Reserve.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report does not support the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025).

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Lease the transport yard to Fulton Hogan (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Reclassify the “yard”

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The delivery of the Council maintenance contract is optimised.

·     The jail is preserved for future generations.

·     No additional expenditure is required.

·     The site is retained by Council.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     The use as a transport yard is not in keeping with the reserve classification

 

5.   Context/Background

Previous Board Report and Resolution

5.1       At its meeting of 20th April 2016 Lyttelton/Mt Herbert Community Board recommended that the Council lease 153 Governors Bay Rd which is a recreation reserve, known as the Allandale transport yard site, to Fulton Hogan, subject to public notification and approval of existing use rights.

5.2       It was implicit in the report that as the recreation reserve was not currently, nor likely to be used for that purpose, and that as it was inadvisable or inexpedient to revoke the reservation, it should be leased. Justification was that the Parks Unit had confirmed it was unlikely for the reserve to be used as a recreation reserve and as part of the reserve is to be retained to protect the historic jail, it was inadvisable to revoke the reservation.

5.3       Following this meeting and in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977, staff publicly notified the intention to lease the site in June 2016 with no objections being received.

5.4       The previous resolution referred to leasing the property under section 73(1) (for farming or grazing) and not 73(3) (where it is inadvisable or inexpedient to revoke the reservation) of the Reserves Act 1977. Public notification was however carried out appropriately and the wording from section 73(3) was explicitly referenced in the report. The resolution is still valid but an amendment is required to rectify this typographical error.

5.5       The resolution required staff to report back to the Board if existing use rights could not be obtained for the site which is located in a Rural Zone, or if there were any objections to the lease following public notification, or for any other reason which would prevent the lease being granted.

5.6       In order for an existing use right certificate to be issued certain criteria must be met, one of which is that the intensity and scale relating to the use must not have changed. As the historic intensity and scale cannot be proven, an existing use right certificate will not be issued.

5.7       History of use of the site does however suggest this to be similar to that existing. Furthermore, no complaints about the use have been received by Council nor objections received through the public notification process which would support this contention.

5.8       Notwithstanding the above, the new lease should include a clause requiring the tenant to fulfil any statutory or regulatory obligations with regard to the non-complying use, with a break clause for the tenant should consent not be obtained.

5.9       An open market valuation of the annual rent was obtained from an independent registered valuer who estimated a rent in the order of $14-15,000 plus GST would be appropriate.

5.10    Negotiations with Fulton Hogan have resulted in a rent of $14,500 plus GST being agreed.

5.11    In the past this Reserve Management Committee kept the income and then spent it on the reserve.  Some concerns have been raised about the appropriateness of this practice, and it is in the process of being reviewed.  If arrangements are to change they will balance Council’s Strategic Priorities, such as enabling active citizenship and connected communities, legal responsibilities and practical considerations.

5.12    The most likely mechanism is a policy which covers the funding of RMCs being developed. This policy will expand on the work already being done to move funds held by individual RMCs to CCC WBS codes and work out how income off reserves is handled in the future.  The expectation is that this policy will start once all RMCs have management plans and priority spending can be agreed. Income and expenditure can be looked at during this process.

5.13    In the interim, the preferred mechanism for allowing the RMC to receive the income is:

5.13.1 For one year unbudgeted revenue (noting that none of the rental is currently budgeted) to the value of $14,500, be allocated to the Board;

5.13.2 The Board in turn grants the Reserve Management Committee an equivalent amount for development of the Reserve.

5.14    Since the previous report it has been identified that there is a water well on the property serving the Allandale Domain whose power supply is located in the building to be leased. It is intended to include a lease term to ensure this power supply is maintained at all times.

5.15    The proposed lessee is contracted to maintain the roads in this area for Council and this location is strategic for delivering on that contract so, while the use is inconsistent with the current land classification, it does contribute to achieving Council’s outcomes.

 

6.   Option 1 - Lease the transport yard to Fulton Hogan (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Lease the site as a transport yard with the exception of the jail which would be retained for public access.

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are public notification as required under the Reserves Act.

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       Public notification of the intention to lease the site to Fulton Hogan was undertaken in June 2016 and no objections or enquiries were received.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.6       There is a Reserve Management Plan for the Allandale Reserve.  It is silent on the issue of the transport yard and lease.

6.7       This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

6.7.1   Inconsistency - the property is non-operational and there are no other Council uses identified so it should be declared surplus. Leasing the property without going through a tender process is also inconsistent with the property disposal policy.

6.7.2   Reason for inconsistency - the proposed lessee is contracted to maintain the roads in this area for Council and this location is strategic for delivering on that contract.

6.7.3   Amendment necessary - the Council has no intention to amend the policy to accommodate the decision due to the proposed transaction being a one-off exception.

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation - staff time and advertising the lease.

6.9       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Fulton Hogan will be required to maintain the land and buildings the lease covers. The jail has historically been maintained by local residents.

6.10    Funding source - Transport operational budgets.

Legal Implications

6.11    As the intention to lease has been advertised with no objections, there are no implications.

Risks and Mitigations    

6.12    There is a risk that a complaint on the traffic movements is received as a result of use of the site.  This may result in the need for a Resource Consent application.

6.12.1 Treatment: The lease is to be drafted that Fulton Hogan may terminate the lease or apply for a Resource Consent to establish the non-complying use.

6.12.2 Residual risk rating: the rating of the risk is low.

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies  - none

6.14    Implementation timeframe – N/A

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   The delivery of the Council maintenance contract is optimised.

·   The jail is preserved for future generations.

·   No additional expenditure is required.

·   The site is retained by Council.

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The use as a transport yard is not in keeping with the reserve classification

7.   Option 2 - Reclassify the transport yard

Option Description

7.1       Reclassify the transport yard to a more appropriate classification such as Local Purpose (Works Depot) classification.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  As part of the relevant statutory process, engagement will be required.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       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

7.4       N/A

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       There is a Reserve Management Plan for the Allandale Reserve.  It is silent on the issue of the transport yard and lease.

7.6       This option is not contemplated in the Reserve Management Plan or any other of Council’s plans or policies. The process would be consistent with statutory requirements.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation - staff costs.

7.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – no change from present.

7.9       Funding source - operational Greenspace budget.

Legal Implications

7.10    A statutory process would need to be undertaken.

Risks and Mitigations

7.11    Not applicable

Implementation

7.12    Implementation dependencies  - not applicable

7.13    Implementation timeframe - not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   The historic jail would remain protected as a Council asset.

·   A key road maintenance depot would be maintained.

·   The land would remain in public ownership

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The land would have a different purpose and not be available for recreation purposes (unless there was a subsequent reclassification).

4.   Meeting Schedule

4.1       The staff recommendation in this report, for the Board to adopt a meeting schedule through to December 2018, has been developed based on a number of factors:

·     The meeting schedule for the Banks Peninsula Community Board in 2017

·     The desirability of holding two ordinary Board meetings in each calendar month

·     Consideration of other commitments on the Council calendar, e.g. Council/Committee meetings and scheduled Recess Weeks

·     A request that all Community Boards hold one of their meetings per month in Community Week

·     A desire to avoid day/time clashes with other Community Board meetings if possible

4.2       At its meeting on 30 January 2017 the Board approved its meeting schedule up until the end of 2017.

4.3       It is suggested that Board meetings generally be held at 1.00pm on the second and fourth Mondays of each calendar month with both meetings being full business meetings.  The exception to this will be the three months where it is recommended to hold only one meeting, which it is proposed will commence at 10.00am.

4.4       It is proposed that the venue for Board meetings will be rotated between the three centres on Banks Peninsula.

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.

 

Staff Recommendations

That the Banks Peninsula Community Board:

1.    Receive the Area Update.

2.    Appoint Rewi Couch as Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke’s representative on the Lyttelton Reserves Management Committee, and decide whether the representative will be a member with full voting rights or act in an advisory capacity without voting rights.

3.    Request that staff encourage conventional parallel parking on the south side of Exeter Street in Lyttelton (outside #31-37 Exeter Street).

4.    Appoint Councillor Turner plus one other member to represent the Board at a joint meeting of Community Boards and the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee to consider a report, receive any deputations, and make a recommendation to the Council on the Summit Road – Proposed Prohibited Times on Road Restrictions.

10.  Request that staff investigate whether the Council has a moral obligation to voluntarily uphold the Maritime Labour Convention.

 

 

2.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

2.1       Community Board Plan update against outcomes

2.1.1   The Board approved its Community Board Plan in July 2017 (link below). In response to issues raised by our communities, we identified seven priority outcomes we would like to achieve in the next couple of years.

https://www.ccc.govt.nz/assets/Documents/Culture-Community/Stats-and-facts-on-Christchurch/Community-Board-Plans/Banks-Peninsula-Community-Board-Plan-2017-2019.pdf

2.1.2   The Board will review progress with and prioritisation of actions in late-January. A progress report will then be included in the Board’s February agenda. Further progress reports will be made quarterly.

 

2.2       Memos/Information reporting back on Community Board matters

2.2.1   Lyttelton Reserves Management Committee

At its 25 September meeting the Board was informed that having a representative of Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke (Rāpaki) on the Lyttelton Reserve Management Committee would have assisted the process around the preparation of the Urumau Reserve Development Plan. The Board resolved to ask the Lyttelton Reserve Management Committee to invite a representaitve of Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke to be a member of the Committee.

The Committee invited Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke to nominate a representative, and Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke nominated Rewi Couch. The Committee requested that the Board decide whether the representative will be a member with full voting rights or act in an advisory capacity without voting rights.

 Staff recommendation

That the Board appoint Rewi Couch as Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke’s representative on the Lyttelton Reserves Management Committee, and decide whether the representative will be a member with full voting rights or act in an advisory capacity without voting rights.

2.2.2   Restoration of the Whare Karakia at Rāpaki Marae

In September the Board provided a letter of support for Te Hapu o Ngāti Wheke’s funding applications to repair and restore the whare karakia (church) at Rāpaki Marae.

The whare karakia has been an important meeting place and an integral part of the community since it was built in 1869, and continues to be used for events and services by the Anglican, Presbyterian and Wesleyan ministries. The building itself is also historically significant as it is one of only two remaining early European buildings on Rāpaki Reserve. Built by the local community, it opened with a multi-denominational service with hymns sung in both Māori and English.

Te Hapu o Ngāti Wheke is happy to announce it has secured the majority of funding, and is awaiting confirmation on a small shortfall. It looks forward to proceeding with repairs and restoration as soon as possible with a view to completion in early-2018.

2.2.3   Exeter Street Angle Parking and No Stopping

At a previous meeting the Board requested that staff provide an update on the possibility of formalising angle parking on Exeter Street in Lyttelton, or other possible solutions as suggested by residents.

Staff briefed the Board at a seminar, advising that, on balance, initial investigations indicated there was only a marginal gain in parking spaces from formalising the angle parking in Exeter Street, and that the benefits were not likely to outweigh the cost and time. Staff also noted that parking demand was being affected by the nearby works in the street.

 

The Board requested more detailed information on this matter (see staff advice below). In summary, the original staff advice still stands, and no formal changes to parking are recommended to occur in Exeter Street.

Angle Parking on South Side of Exeter Street (Outside #31-37 Exeter Street)

Despite the absence of parking/line markings, site inspections reveal that motorists are already choosing to park at a near 45 degree angle along this street (see attached photo).   

 

If formal car parking markings were to be provided (in accordance with AS2890.5:1993 – On-Street Parking Standard), this would provide for 8 x 45-deegree car parking spaces (see attached sketch).  Note that a recently constructed vehicle crossing serving #49 Canterbury Street (which has access to Exeter Street) prevents any more spaces being marked in this location.  The two other car parking spaces outside #49 Canterbury Street should be retained as parallel spaces so as to maintain safe manoeuvres in close proximity to the intersection.

 

Staff recommendation

Although some motorists are choosing to angle park in this location already, staff recommend encouraging motorists to revert back to conventional parallel parking in this location. The reasons for this include:

 

·    The 8 x angle car parking option + 2 parallel spaces (10 spaces) provides only one additional car parking space when compared to the existing parallel parking scenario (see attached sketch which identifies 9 cars parking parallel to the kerb).    

·    Exeter Street has a westbound downward slope from Canterbury Street.   Although this flattens at the western end, at least three of the angled parking spaces further east would necessitate a hill-start reverse manoeuvre (with minimal visibility if the adjoining car park is occupied).

·    Reverse manoeuvres would require vehicles to cross the centreline.  While this is permitted on low volume roads, it is still not ideal.

·    Fully occupied angle parking would require at least a four-point turn for vehicles to exit their car park in order to head east (towards Canterbury Street).  Conversely, parallel parked vehicles could do this in one or two points.

·    The cost of the line marking would be around $1250

 

Removing the No-Stopping Restriction Outside #12 & 14 Exeter Street

The Board requested that staff investigate whether the no stopping restriction (broken yellow lines) outside this site can be removed to provide an additional two on-street car parking spaces (see attached aerial photo with location identified). Staff advise that this parking restriction is required to provide vehicle access to #16a and 16 Exeter Street.  If cars were able to park on the street in this location they would restrict property access.

2.2.4   Temporary Parking – Lyttelton Museum Site

At a previous meeting the Board requested that staff provide information regarding the potential use of the former Lyttelton Museum site for temporary parking. Staff briefed the Board at a seminar, but the Board provided further context and requested more detailed information on the parking opportunity on this site.

Staff advise there would be little gain and relatively significant cost to developing this site to provide temporary parking, in particular if used for the purposes of long stay parking for ferry passengers' vehicles. In fact there could be no gain, as parking spaces on street would have to be removed to gain access to the off-street spaces.

 

The provision of additional long term off street parking is not recommended in situations where demand is not considered to exceed supply in the wider vicinity for the majority of the time. This is reflected in the lack of requests for parking restrictions in the area to enable a turnover of parking. Staff also advise that the provision of long stay unrestricted parking has not been raised as a significant issue or concern with ferry users as part of the discussions around ferry access and Lyttelton Port Company’s car park development. Subsequent site visits have indicated that the area does at times carry a high level of on street parking in the immediate vicinity, but often there is unrestricted parking a relatively short walk away.

 

In summary, staff do not recommend implementing temporary parking at the former Lyttelton Museum site as there would be little, or any, gain in parking spaces and relatively significant cost.

 

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

2.3.1   Head to Head Walkway Working Party

Work is underway to create a continuous walkway around Whakaraupō/Lyttleton Harbour, which will attract locals and visitors from Christchurch City and across New Zealand to enjoy the spectacular coastline and native bush. The Walkway will also pass through several of our idyllic settlements, which will contribute to thriving local economies.

2.3.2   This project is driven by the Board and passionate community organisations from around Lyttelton Harbour, who form a Working Party.

2.3.3   The most recent Working Party meeting was held in November. The purpose was to provide an update on recently completed work and seek input on upcoming work.

2.3.4   Recently completed work includes upgrading the track through Urumau Reserve above Lyttelton to make it more walkable and constructing a new footbridge in Cass Bay. The Cass Bay Reserves Management Committee have expressed appreciation for the high-quality footbridge.

2.3.5   Upcoming work includes upgrade of the Coastal Track from Purau to Church Bay. Local volunteers have expressed interest in helping with these upgrades. The Working Party also discussed options for the route of a new section between Church Bay and Orton Bradley Park.

2.3.6   Summit Road - Proposed Prohibited Times On Road Restrictions

The Council’s consultation on the proposal to restrict vehicular access on the Summit Road has been completed. 

A staff report on the matter is to be presented to a joint Community Boards and Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee meeting for consideration.

The relevant Boards (Banks Peninsula, Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton, Linwood-Central-Heathcote and Spreydon-Cashmere) are each asked to appoint a member to attend the joint Boards and Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee meeting to consider a report, hear any deputations, and make a recommendation to the Council on the matter.

In addition, the Banks Peninsula Community Board has been asked to appoint Councillor Turner to the joint body, so that there is a Councillor representing all four Community Board areas.

Accordingly, the Board is asked to consider appointing Councillor Turner plus one other member as its representatives to attend and participate at the above joint meeting.

 

2.4       Board area Consultations/Engagement

2.4.1   In mid-2017 the Board made submissions on the Council’s Traffic and Parking, Stock on Roads and Marine, River and Lake Facilities Bylaws, and spoke to these at hearings in October and November. A range of issues were raised by submitters and these were carefully considered by the Hearings Panel, which was composed of Deputy Mayor Andrew Turner (as Chairperson), Councillor David East, and Councillor Glenn Livingstone.

             The Council approved all three bylaws coming into force on 1 March 2018; the website is currently being updated to reflect the changes approved to the proposed bylaws consulted on as a result of the hearings process, so currently to view the final form of the bylaws you should refer to Attachment A of the Hearings Panel’s reports to the Council referred to below.

2.5       Submission Opportunities

2.5.1   Takapūneke Reserve Management Plan

At its 13 November meeting, the Board resolved that staff prepare a draft submission on the Council’s Draft Takapūneke Reserve Management Plan (to be circulated separately).

Staff recommendation

That the Board approve its submission on the Draft Takapūneke Reserve Management Plan.

2.5.2   Dyers Pass Road Proposed Safety Improvements

Consultation is open from 21 November to 18 December on the following Council proposals to improve safety on Dyers Pass Road:

·    Change the Dyers Pass Road speed limit from 70km/h and 100km/h to 60km/h along Dyers Pass Road near its intersection with Governors Bay Road to Pentre Terrace

·    Install continuous double yellow no passing lines

Background

Dyers Pass Road from Governors Bay to Sign of the Takahe is categorised as a medium to high route in terms of road safety.

Approximately 180 accidents have been recorded over the last ten year period resulting in 14 serious injuries and one fatality. Loss of control due to inappropriate speeds into bends, and vehicles crossing the centre line, account for a concerning number of the reported accidents. The proposed safety improvements aim to reduce the frequency of accidents along this route.

Timeline

·    21 November to 18 December – Consultation open

·    January 2018 – Submitters notified of consultation outcome

·    February/March – Banks Peninsula and Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board meetings and Council meetings

·    April – Project start (pending Council approval)

For more information and to have your say, please visit the website below or a Council Service Centre.

https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/108

Staff recommendation

That the Board consider whether it wishes to make a submission on the proposal to change the Dyers Pass Road speed limit. Note: The Banks Peninsula and Spreydon-Cashmere Community Boards are the final decision-makers on the proposal to install continuous double yellow no passing lines.

2.5.3   Whakaraupō / Lyttelton Harbour Catchment Management Plan

Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Te Rūnanga o Ngai Tahu, Environment Canterbury, Christchurch City Council, and Lyttelton Port Company have been working together to develop a catchment management plan for the future of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour.  

 

Whaka-Ora, Healthy Harbour (draft for consultation) was available for the public to provide feedback until 4 December. You will be able to find it on the Healthy Harbour website at http://healthyharbour.org.nz/.

 

2.5.4   Proposed Intersection Improvements for Simeon Quay/Brittan Terrace

This proposed intersection improvement is part of the Council’s wider Inner Harbour road project looking at safety improvements. Consultation is open on this proposal from 23 November to 14 December.

 

Why is an intersection change proposed?

·    The volume of traffic entering and exiting Brittan Terrace from Simeon Quay is a lot greater than straight through traffic.

·    The existing intersection layout causes delays on Brittan Terrace with the majority of traffic waiting to turn right on to Simeon Quay.

·    To increase pedestrian safety at this intersection, a continuation of the path from Brittan Terrace across to Simeon Quay will be installed.

 

Proposed changes

·    Remove the stopping restriction on Brittan Terrace to allow vehicles to continue on to Simeon Quay.

·    No entry to Simeon Quay west from Brittan Terrace, for traffic to flow from Brittan Terrace to Simeon Quay.

·    No through route to Simeon Quay west heading from Lyttelton, vehicles to use Brittan Terrace and Voelas Road.

·    The new intersection layout will increase pedestrian safety by continuing the pedestrian path from Brittan Terrace to Simeon Quay. New kerb build outs on Brittan Terrace and Simeon Quay to slow vehicles travelling through this intersection.

·    New no stopping lines on Simeon Quay and Brittan Terrace to improve the sight lines for vehicles and pedestrians at the new intersection.

 

Timeline

·    23 November – Consultation open

·    7 December – Drop-in information session from 4pm-6pm at Lyttelton Community Boardroom, 25 Canterbury Street

·    14 December – Consultation closes

·    January – Submitters notified of consultation outcome

·    February – Staff report goes to Banks Peninsula Community Board, who will make the final decision

·    February/March – Projects starts (pending Board approval)

Lyttelton Seafarers Centre

4.1       Status

4.1.1   At its 13 November meeting, the Board received a presentation during the Public Forum session from the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre on the importance of providing welfare services to seafarers in Lyttelton.

4.1.2   The Centre noted that the New Zealand Government recently ratified the Maritime Labour Convention. A legal opinion from the Council has noted that the Convention is voluntary and there is no legal obligation to uphold it.

4.1.3   The Centre sought support from the Board for:

·     Funding to enable the Seafarers Centre to extend its opening hours

·     Securing a permanent building for the Seafarers Centre (the Centre is currently in a temporary building until 2021)

That the Board:

4.2.1   Support the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre’s goal to provide welfare services to seafarers in Lyttelton.

4.2.2   Request that staff work with the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre to investigate any funding options.

4.2.3   Request that staff advise whether any Council properties would be appropriate for a permanent site for the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre during the upcoming property review process.

4.2.4   Request that staff investigate whether the Council has a moral obligation to voluntarily uphold the Maritime Labour Convention.

New Report Assesses Coastal Hazards Risk 

4.4       Status

4.4.1   The challenges communities face in adapting to climate change are highlighted in a new report assessing the coastal hazards across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.

4.4.2   The report was prepared by environmental and engineering consultancy Tonkin & Taylor Limited and contains the most detailed and up-to-date information on coastal hazards facing the communities within the Christchurch City Council’s boundaries.

4.4.3   The 2017 report is the end result of a thorough and independent peer review of an earlier report, the 2015 Coastal Hazard Assessment Report.

4.4.4   A peer review panel made recommendations to improve the 2015 report. This new report addresses all those recommendations and includes the findings of further investigations.

4.4.5   It will be a starting point for a conversation with the community about how we are going to adapt to the realities of climate change, particularly sea-level rise and increased storminess.  It will also help inform any future changes to the coastal hazard provisions in the Christchurch District Plan.

4.4.6   Climate change is expected to accelerate sea level rise and the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement requires Christchurch City Council to consider coastal hazards over the long term – at least 100 years.

4.4.7   The 2017 report covers the key inhabited coastal areas within the Council’s boundaries and investigates the potential for erosion and inundation (flooding by the sea) over a 50-year and a 100-year timeframe for four climate scenarios.

4.4.8   After the report was released, community drop-in sessions were held in Diamond Harbour and Akaroa. Feedback from these meetings will be collated. Communities who wish to will then work with the Council to develop Community Resilience Plans, which will detail how to respond to all natural hazards including coastal hazards.

4.4.9   More Detailed Information
