Community Board Resolved HHRB/2017/00256

The Board then proceeded to consider an allocation being made from the Board’s Discretionary Response Fund to commission a CPTED report.

Staff advice was given that the Local Government Act 2002 and other legislation requires that decision making must take into account all options and that sufficient time is given for that information to be received and considered.

The Board believed it had sufficient information in this instance to make a decision on seeking a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) report and that it was appropriate that this be funded from the 2017-18 Discretionary Response Fund.

6.            The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolved that up to $5,500 be allocated from the Board’s 2017-18 Discretionary Response Fund to commission a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) report for the general area of Division Street/Riccarton Road.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve the installation of eight bus passenger shelters at seven existing bus stops and one soon to be construction bus stop, all located within the governance area of the Community Board that have received no objection by the owner or occupier of the adjacent properties.

1.2       Where applicable and deemed necessary by staff, the report includes the remediation of under-dimension bus stops, at the bus stop(s) where a bus passenger shelter is proposed.  Under-dimension bus stops do not adhere to the recommended bus stop length as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  In the case of this report, the bus stop at 93 Harwood is recommended to be remediated to the correct bus stop length.

Origin of Report

1.3       This report is staff generated. Where no objection (either by approval or no feedback) to the shelter has been presented by the owner or occupier of an affected property, the relevant Community Board for that area has the delegated authority to approve the installation of the proposed shelter.

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 comparing factors relating to this decision against the criteria set out in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve the installation of a bus shelter at the following locations:

a.         Corsair Drive, adjacent to 90 The Runway,

b.         59 Waimairi Road,

c.         58 Patterson Terrace, adjacent to Patterson Reserve,

d.         78 Springs Road,

e.         Caulfield Avenue (opposite Longhurst Health Centre, adjacent Greenway Park), north west of Hamill Road on the north side of the road,

f.          New bus stop on Awatea Road (opposite Summerset Retirement Village and adjacent Carrs North Basin Drainage Reserve), south east of Carrs Road on the south side of the road,

g.         13 Springs Road,

h.         51 Main South Road

2.         Approve the following bus stop parking restrictions remediation at an existing bus stop at 78 Springs Road:

a.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions on the north side of Springs Road commencing at a point 50 metres east of its intersection with Neill Street and extending in an northerly direction for a distance of 29 metres, be revoked.

b.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Springs Road commencing at a point 50 metres east of its intersection with Neil Street and extending in an northerly direction for a distance of 11 metres.

c.         Approve that a marked bus stop be installed on the north side of Springs Road commencing at a point 61 metres south east of its intersection with Neill Street and extending in an northerly direction for a distance of 14 metres.

d.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Springs Road commencing at a point 75 metres east of its intersection with Neill Street and extending in an northerly direction for a distance of four metres.

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.4 Ensure user satisfaction with the number and quality of bus shelters

·     Level of Service: 10.4.10 Improve the accessibility of bus stops via targeted review and improvement programme.

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - The preferred option, install eight bus passenger shelters, and remediate associated bus stop line marking provisions.

·     Option 2 - Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Protection from weather,

·     Seating provided within the shelter, and

·     Increase the visibility and legibility of public transport

·     Bus stop road markings adhere to the recommended bus stop road markings as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009),

·     Adherence to the recommended bus stop length improves passenger accessibility, as buses have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb, and

·     Provision of the recommended bus stop length has the potential to improve the operational performance of the bus line(s) that use the bus stop.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Increase in the number of bus passenger shelters to be maintained by the Council.

·     During the peak times of public transport usage, the shelter can only provide shelter for a limited number of people, however this is the case with most bus shelters.

4.4       Consultation has been undertaken with the owner and/or occupier of the property adjacent to the proposed shelters.  Only a shelter where the owner or occupier of the adjacent property has provided feedback indicating approval or where there was no response received to the consultation is included within this report.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A bus passenger shelter is proposed for the bus stop locations presented in this report, predominantly due to the average weekday passenger boardings (ave.pax/weekday), as indicated in the following list. 

·   66 ave. pax/weekday - Corsair Drive (adjacent 90 The Runway),

·   42 ave. pax/weekday -  59 Waimairi Road,

·   33 ave. pax/weekday - 58 Patterson Terrace,

·   43 ave. pax/weekday -  78 Springs Road,

·   35 ave. pax/weekday -  Caulfield Avenue, opposite Longhurst Health Centre and adjacent to Greenway Park.

·   Estimate of 15 to 20 ave. pax/weekday -  a new bus stop will soon be installed on Awatea Road, opposite the Summerset Retirement Village and adjacent to the Carrs North Basin Drainage Reserve.  The new bus stop is a relocation of an existing bus stop on Awatea Road, which is currently located just to the east of Carrs Road, on the south side of the road.

·   54 ave. pax/weekday -  13 Springs Road,

·   46 ave. pax/weekday - 51 Main South Road

5.2       The location of the bus stops, and hence the proposed shelters, relative to their surrounding locality, is indicated in following figures.

Figure 1:  Location of bus stops - Caulfield Avenue and Patterson Terrace

Figure 2:  Location of bus stops - Springs Road, Corsair Drive and Awatea Road

Figure 3:  Location of bus stop - Waimairi Road and Main South Road

5.3       Council staff propose to install a shelter in the location outlined in the attached bus passenger shelter plans (refer to Attachments A to H). 

5.4       Environment Canterbury (ECan) is responsible for providing public transport services.  The Christchurch City Council is responsible for providing public transport infrastructure.  The installation of this shelter is supported by ECan.

5.5       Under Section 339 of the Local Government Act 1974, the Council may erect on the footpath of any road, a shelter for use by intending public transport passengers or taxi passengers provided that no such shelter may be erected so as to unreasonably prevent access to any land having a frontage to the road.  The Council is required to give notice in writing to the occupier and owner of property likely to be injuriously affected by the erection of the shelter, and shall not proceed with the erection of the shelter until after the expiration of the time for objecting against the proposal or, in the event of an objection, until after the objection has been determined.

5.6       Staff confirm the shelters will not prevent vehicular or pedestrian access to any land having a frontage to the road, as a result of the proposed shelter installations.

5.7       During the review of the bus stop sites for the proposed bus passenger shelters, staff identified that the length of the existing bus stop at 78 Springs Road does not meet the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guideline recommendations.  Due to the potential for a vehicle to park in front of the bus stop, staff recommend the bus stop parking restrictions be extended to the front and rear of the bus stop, thereby adhering to the recommended minimum length for a bus stop. 

5.8       The additional parking restrictions does not remove any on-street parking, as the distance between the existing bus stop and the driveway to number 74 Springs Road does not provide sufficient length to legally permit two vehicles to be parked within the space available.  Likewise the space between the driveway of number 78 and 80 Springs Road is not long enough to legally permit a single vehicle to be parked within the space available on-street.

5.9       Providing a bus stop that is the correct length, ensures buses have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb, thereby improving passenger accessibility and improving operational performance of the bus service.

5.10    Staff note the bus stop adjacent to 58 Patterson Terrace (Patterson Reserve) is not marked.  The bus stop, due to it being located adjacent to Patterson Reserve, and its proximity to the intersection of Alvaston Drive and intersection of Calverton Place, is likely to not have the same constraints faced by the bus stop on Springs Road.  Staff in this instance consider it acceptable for the bus stop to operate without line markings, however this may change over time should parking demand become an issue for the operation of the bus stop.

5.11    Consultation has been carried out with the affected properties.  The consultation period occurred from Tuesday 7 November 2017 to Tuesday 21 November 2017.  Only a shelter where the owner or occupier of the adjacent property has provided feedback indicating approval or where there was no response received to the consultation is included within this report.  Further information about the bus passenger shelter consultation can be found in Sections 6.5 to 6.10.

6.   Option 1 - Proposed Bus Passenger Shelter Installations

Option Description

6.1       Install eight bus passenger shelters, and remediate associated bus stop line marking provisions.  Of the eight bus passenger shelters, seven are to be installed at existing bus stops, and one to be installed at a soon to be constructed bus stop on Awatea Road (opposite Summerset Retirement Village).

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance includes the consultation with occupier and owner of property likely to be injuriously affected by the erection of the shelter.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3       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.

6.4       Whilst the proposed shelter on Corsair Drive (adjacent 90 The Runway) does not impact the culture and traditions of Ngai Tahu, they are the adjacent land owner to the proposed shelter, and are the developers of the Wigram subdivision.  During the development of the Wigram subdivision, Ngai Tahu have made allowances in the road network for where bus stops will go.  In the case of the bus stops on Corsair Drive (south of The Runway), additional road space provision has been provided to allow for the installation of bus passenger shelters, which indicates Ngai Tahu’s vested interest in the provision of public transport in the subdivision.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       The properties listed below are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed shelter.  The consultation notice and a feedback form were delivered by hand to each property listed below on Tuesday 7 November 2017, requesting the owners or occupiers feedback of approval or objection to the bus passenger shelter at the bus stop outside the property they own or occupy.  The consultation information was posted by mail to absentee owners.  The consultation process closed on Tuesday 21 November 2017.

·   Corsair Drive, adjacent 90 The Runway (Ngai Tahu Property Limited)

·   59 Waimairi Road

·   58 Patterson Terrace, adjacent Patterson Reserve (Christchurch City Council)

·   76, 78, 80 Springs Road.  The consultation is wider than most of the other sites, as the consultation included the remediation of the bus stop line markings.

·   Caulfield Avenue, opposite Longhurst Health Centre and adjacent Greenway Park (Christchurch City Council)

·   New bus stop on Awatea Road, opposite Summerset Retirement Village (Christchurch City Council)

·   13 Springs Road

·   49 and 51 Main South Road

6.6       The property owner of 59 Waimairi Road returned the feedback form indicating approval to have a bus passenger shelter installed. 

6.7       The property owner of 13 Springs Road returned the feedback form indicating approval to the shelter.  The property owner is in the process of selling the property.  On the day the consultation information was delivered by hand to 13 Springs Road, staff noted the ‘for sale’ sign, and issued by email the consultation information to the real estate company managing the sale of the property.  Staff requested that the consultation information be forwarded to the prospective/new owner of the property, no response has been received.

6.8       Similar to 13 Springs Road, on the day the consultation information was delivered by hand to 49 Main South Road, staff noted the ‘for sale’ sign, and issued by email the consultation information to the real estate company managing the sale of the property.  Staff have subsequently been contacted by the new property owner.  The owner of 49 Main South Road contacted staff to enquire about the type of shelter proposed.  The property owner has some general concerns about vandalism at bus stops, however he did not indicate an objection to the shelter, and has not submitted any formal feedback to indicate an objection.

6.9       Where the proposed shelter is adjacent to land owned by Christchurch City Council, staff have contacted the relevant unit within the Council to seek and confirm their approval. 

6.10    No feedback has been received from the adjacent property owner (Ngai Tahu Property Limited), to the shelter proposed on Corsair Drive.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.12    Staff professional services costs - $7,000, which covers planning, consultation and approval process incurred irrespective of the Community Board’s decision or recommendation.

6.13    Cost of Implementation – The supply and installation of the bus passenger shelters, in additional to other bus stop remedial work is estimated to cost $80,000. 

6.14    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Costs will be met from the Passenger Transport Maintenance budget.

6.15    Funding source - The cost will be met from the Passenger Transport Infrastructure budget available for the installation of shelters.

Legal Implications

6.16    Where no objection to the shelter has been presented by the owner or occupier of an affected property, the relevant Community Board for that area has the delegated authority to approve the installation of the proposed shelter.

6.17    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.

6.18    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.

6.19    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

6.20    The shelter is not installed, leading to a poor level of service for passengers waiting for a bus.

6.21    Increased street clutter. Where street clutter has been identified through site assessments (e.g. rubbish bins located by the kerb edge (i.e. in less than ideal locations), excess number of public transport related poles, etc.), these footpath obstacles will be relocated to an appropriate location in close proximity to the shelter (e.g. the rubbish bin), and the number of poles reduced by maximising the use of the shelter (e.g. attaching the Real Time Information device 'bus finder' to the shelter).  This will help provide a de-cluttered footpath environment by the bus stop and improve the level of service for pedestrians passing the shelter and for passengers waiting for a bus.

Implementation

6.22    Implementation dependencies - approval by the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.

6.23    Implementation timeframe - dependant on the contractor's workloads, but the shelter should be installed within three months of being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.24    The advantages of this option include:

·   Protection from weather,

·   Seating provided within the shelter,

·   Increase the visibility and legibility of public transport,

·   Bus stop road markings adhere to the recommended bus stop road markings as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009),

·   Adherence to the recommended bus stop length improves passenger accessibility, as buses have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb, and

·   Provision of the recommended bus stop length has the potential to improve the operational performance of the bus line(s) that use the bus stop.

6.25    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Increase in the number of bus passenger shelters to be maintained by the Council.

·   During the peak times of public transport usage, the shelter can only provide shelter for a limited number of people, however this is the case with most bus shelters.

·   Installing the correct bus stop road markings at 78 Springs Road, as per the recommended minimum bus stop road marking length as outlined in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009) will result in the loss of one on-street parking space.

7.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       No bus passenger shelter is installed at the location identified in section 3 of this report.  The bus stop line marking provision at 78 Springs Road is not remediated.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  As there is no bus passenger shelter proposed, the engagement requirements for this level of significance does not involve any consultation.

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       Not applicable

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       This option is inconsistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies

7.5.1   Inconsistency - It does not ensure user satisfaction with the number and quality of bus shelters

7.5.2   Reason for inconsistency - Bus passengers will not be provided shelter to wait for a bus

7.5.3   Amendment necessary - No amendment needed to the Council's Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

7.6       Staff professional services costs - $7,000, which covers planning, consultation and approval process incurred irrespective of the Community Board’s decision or recommendation.

7.7       Cost of Implementation – not applicable

7.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - not applicable

7.9       Funding source - not applicable

Legal Implications

7.10    Not applicable

Risks and Mitigations

7.11    The existing passenger waiting facilities remain, leading to no improvement to the level of service for passengers waiting for a bus.

7.12    It may reduce bus patronage on wet days, as passengers may choose another mode of travel as there is no shelter provided at the bus stop.

Implementation

7.13    Implementation dependencies - not applicable

7.14    Implementation timeframe - not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   Option 2 has no clear advantages.

7.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It is inconsistent with the Council's Plans and Policies.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve two new bus stops on Skyhawk Road, Wigram, located along the number 60 bus line.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated for the following reasons:

·   There is a gap in access to public transport in the south east corner of the Wigram subdivision,

·   Utilises the planned and identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint, which indicated to prospective property buyers where bus stops are planned to be installed, and;

·   Requests by the public to have bus stops installed in the south east area of the Wigram subdivision.

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 assessing the impact of the project against the criteria set out in the Significance and Engagement assessment.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to approve the following parking restrictions:

Bus stop 1 - Adjacent to 15 Skyhawk Road

1.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions on the south side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 19.5 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 29 metres, be revoked.

2.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the south side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 19.5 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of seven metres.

3.         Approve that a marked bus stop be installed on the south side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 26.5 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 14 metres.

4.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the south side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 40.5 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of eight metres. 

Bus Stop 2 - Adjacent to 16 Skyhawk Road

5.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions on the north side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 14 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 35.5 metres, be revoked.

6.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 14 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of nine metres.

7.         Approve that a marked bus stop be installed on the north side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 23 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 14 metres.

8.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Skyhawk Road commencing at a point 37 metres south east of its intersection with Kittyhawk Avenue and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 12.5 metres. 

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.1 Contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Preferred bus stop locations (refer to Figure 4 or Attachment A).

·     Option 2 – Mixture of first and second preference bus stop locations (refer to Figure 5 or Attachment B).

·     Option 2 – Do nothing.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option, Option 1)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The location of the bus stops have been chosen to maximise the passenger catchment to the surrounding residential areas.

·     Utilises the planned and identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint, which indicated to prospective property buyers where bus stops are planned to be installed.

·     A seat will be installed at the bus stop adjacent to 16 Skyhawk Road.  This bus stop is likely to attract passengers who will need to wait for a bus, as the service connects Wigram to the city centre.  Whereas the bus stop adjacent to 15 Skyhawk Road, is likely to be used by people returning home, with little attraction to wait for a bus as it would be the second last stop in the Wigram end of the service.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     A total net loss of four on-street parking spaces.  The on-street parking loss can be absorbed by the remaining provision of on-street parking in the area.

·     The bus stop by 15 Skyhawk Road is located in close proximity to three residential driveways.  The bus stop is likely to have a minor impact on the operation of these driveways, and buses are legally permitted to stop over driveways.  However, the close proximity of the bus stop to the driveways might lead to real or perceived conflicts with the adjacent residents.  As part of Option 2, staff have considered an alternative location for this bus stop, which that would result in no driveways being located at the bus stop, in addition to the adjacent properties having a full height garden wall to minimise privacy intrusion.

·     The bus stop by 15 Skyhawk Road is positioned prior to a pedestrian crossing point on Skyhawk Road.  The impact is mitigated by the 2.5 metre wide lay-by that can be used as a bus stop.

·     The cost of implementation of Option 1 is more than Option 2.

 


 

5.   Context/Background

Access to Public Transport

5.1       Wigram is in the Halswell ward, in the south west of Christchurch, as indicated in Figure 1.

Figure 1:  Location of Wigram

5.2       As indicated in Figure 2, Wigram is serviced by two public transport lines, the number 100 bus service and the number 60 bus service. 

Figure 2:  Wigram – existing bus services

5.3       The number 60 bus service operates between Southshore and Wigram via the city centre. The service operates from around 6am to around midnight, Monday to Friday, and over similar hours during the weekend.  On a weekday, the bus service predominantly runs every 30 minutes. 

5.4       The number 100 bus service does not operate from the bus stops on Skyhawk Road, for the purpose of this report, the service description has not been provided.

Bus Stop Location Planning

5.5       Bus stops provide key access connection points to allow personal mobility by means of public transport.  It can be a challenge in an urban-residential environment to achieve a balance in bus stop planning criteria, because of the need to work with the space available on street, and to be considerate to those who live near the bus stop.

5.6       There are multiple considerations in the location planning of bus stops, however the key topics to consider include:

·   Catchment areas and proximity to surrounding services and amenities,

·   Operational suitability,

·   Accessibility,

·   Capacity, and

·   Information gathered from site visits and feedback from stakeholders (Environment Canterbury and residents).

5.7       Critical to the planning of bus stops on Skyhawk Road is the utilisation of the planned and identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint, which indicated to prospective property buyers where bus stops have been planned to be installed.  Figure 3 indicates the location of Skyhawk Road bus stops as advertised in the Wigram Skies ‘Putangitangi neighbourhood’ sales brochure.

Figure 3:  Wigram Skies pre-sales subdivision plan indicating bus stop location on Skyhawk Road

Bus Stop Consultation

5.8       In total, five submissions were received over two consecutive consultation periods.  The second round of consultation was undertaken to find alternatives to resolve the issues raised by some of the submitters during the first round of consultation, whilst still meeting the objectives of providing the south east corner of Wigram with suitable access to public transport.  One respondent was in general support, and four respondents did not generally support the proposal.  Staff note that of the four responses not in support of the proposal, two were from the same property owner, who objected to the bus stop closest to their property, in addition to the bus stop on the opposite side of the road.

5.9       The two consecutive rounds of consultation occurred because of objections received to the first set of bus stops consulted on.  The bus stop locations were re-evaluated, and a second round of consultation followed with the residents impacted by the new bus stop proposed.  The first round of consultation covered the period from Thursday 21 September 2017 to Friday 6 October 2017.  The second round of consultation covered the period from Wednesday 4 October 2017 to Thursday 19 October 2017.

5.10    The bus stop plan associated with the first round of consultation has the two bus stops on Skyhawk Road located as per the bus stop locations indicated in the Wigram subdivision blueprint, which is two bus stops on Skyhawk Road, between Kittyhawk Avenue and Contrail Street.  The location of the bus stops proposed during the first round of consultation is shown in Figure 4 and in Attachment A.

Figure 4:  Location of proposed bus stops, consultation round 1: 15 and 16 Skyhawk Road

5.11    The bus stop plan associated with the second round of consultation moves the northbound bus stop only (towards Wigram shopping centre) to a lay-by on Skyhawk Road, just to the north of Kittyhawk Avenue, and leaves the southbound bus stop (travel towards the city centre) as per the first round of consultation, that is adjacent to 16 Skyhawk Road.  The location of the bus stops proposed during the second round of consultation is shown in Figure 5 and in Attachment B.

Figure 5:  Location of proposed bus stops, consultation round 2: 23 and 16 Skyhawk Road

5.12    The bus stop consultation process, feedback and outcome is described in Section 6.9 to Section 6.20.

6.   Option 1 – Preferred bus stop location – Option 1

Option Description

6.1       The bus stops recommended for approval as part of Option 1 of this report, are as follows:

·   Adjacent 15 Skyhawk Road, and

·   Adjacent 16 Skyhawk Road.

6.2       Recent photographs of where the bus stops are proposed are shown in Photo 1 and Photo 2.

Photo 1:  Proposed bus stop adjacent 15 Skyhawk Road (photo looking south towards Contrail Street)

Photo 2:  Proposed bus stop adjacent 16 Skyhawk Road (photo looking south towards Contrail Street)

6.3       The planning of bus stop locations has been based on the bus stop planning criteria, as indicated in Sections 5.5 to 5.7.  This includes adherence to planned and identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint.

6.4       The proposed bus stops will need alteration to ensure general adherence to the recommended provisions as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  The main alteration is to the length of the lay-by to ensure the stops are operationally efficient.

6.5       The preferred bus stop locations are shown in Figure 4, and Attachment A.

Significance

6.6       The level of significance of this option is low, consistent with Section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance include consultation with adjacent property owners and occupiers, and engagement with Environment Canterbury as the relevant bus operator.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.7       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 Ngai Tahu, their culture and traditions. 

6.8       Whilst this option does not impact the culture and traditions of Ngai Tahu, they are the developers of the Wigram subdivision and have a vested interest in the provision of public transport, and associated bus stops within the development.  Ngai Tahu Property Ltd, are one of the few developers who have planned for bus stops in a subdivision development in Christchurch.


 

Community Views and Preferences – First Round of Consultation

6.9       The properties listed in Table 1 are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed bus stops.  A consultation notice and feedback form was hand delivered to each property listed in the table (where it is built and has a post box), and the consultation information was posted by mail to absentee owners.  The consultation occurred from Thursday 21 September 2017 to Friday 6 October 2017.  Also indicated in Table 1 is if Council staff received a submission in objection to the proposed bus stop during the consultation period.  The locations of the bus stops referred to in Table 1 are shown in Figure 4 and Attachment A.

Table 1:  Bus stop locations and properties impacted – consultation round 1

6.10    In total, three submissions were received during the first round of consultation.  All three submissions were in objection to the proposed bus stops.  Two of the three objections received by staff, were from the same property owner, who objected to the bus stop closest to their property, in addition to the bus stop on the opposite side of the road.

6.11    There are common reasons why the bus stops have been objected to.  These general reasons for the objections, along with a staff response, are indicated in Table 2.  The individual comments provided as feedback by all submitters, and staff responses are provided in Attachment C.

Objection Category

Response

The bus stop will cause traffic problems

The proposal is no different to any bus stop in the city.  The provision of road space along Skyhawk Road is sufficiently wide for a bus stop to be provided and not block traffic travelling along Skyhawk Road.

The public transport bus fleet is driven by professionally trained drivers.  The bus drivers are trained to operate the bus safely, which includes safely pulling out of, and back into traffic lanes from a bus stop.

The bus stop will make it hazardous to motorists when pulling in or out of their or a nearby driveway

When pulling in our out of driveways, drivers must give way to all traffic on the road, including buses.

Certain sight lines for movements to and from the driveway will be restricted while the bus is stopped.  This is a temporary obstruction, lasting for a matter of seconds when the bus is stopped to allow passengers to board or alight the bus, which is why such configurations are common practice locally and nationally.

The bus stop will take away parking

On-street parking spaces are a public space, and the CCC parking strategy prioritises bus stops over all other types of parking.

While there is some parking loss in the immediate vicinity of the bus stop, there is sufficient on-street parking capacity in the general area to mitigate the introduction of the bus stops.

The bus stop and people who use the bus stop will intrude on the adjacent residents privacy

A bus will only stop at the bus stop if the passenger demand exists.  The frequency of which buses stop at suburban bus stops mitigates the impact of privacy intrusion.  Irrespective, bus stops are located within a public space, and are there to improve the transport choices for the community.

Table 2:  Bus stop consultation round 1 – common reasons for objection

6.12    Where an objection was received to a bus stop in the ‘Round 1’ of consultation, Council staff reviewed the resident’s reason(s) for objection.  Where possible, staff have sought an alternative location, whilst still meeting the objectives of providing the community with suitable access to public transport in the south east corner of Wigram.

6.13    The alternative bus stop location for 15 Skyhawk Road, has been identified as 23 Skyhawk Road.  The advantages of placing the bus stop at 23 Skyhawk Road includes:

·   There are no driveways located at this location.  Vehicle access to the properties located adjacent to the bus stop is from a residential access laneway, accessed off Gartrell Road.

·   The properties located adjacent to the bus stop are separated from the road reserve by a full height garden wall, with pedestrian access points to the properties.

·   The bus stop remains in close proximity to its paired bus stop, which is proposed to be located adjacent to 16 Skyhawk Road. 

·   Provides some operational efficiencies for the bus service, as buses pass the roundabout before stopping at the bus stop, as opposed to the other way round, which would be the case at 15 Skyhawk Road.

·   The bus stop is positioned after a pedestrian crossing point on Skyhawk Road.

6.14    However the disadvantage to 23 Skyhawk Road is it does not match the identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint.

6.15    An alternative site was sought for 16 Skyhawk Road, however after re-evaluation, the preferred bus stop location remains at 16 Skyhawk Road.  The advantages of placing the bus stop at 16 Skyhawk Road includes:

·   Maximises passenger catchment to the surrounding residential areas.

·   Consistent with the identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint.


 

Community Views and Preferences – Second Round of Consultation

6.16    The properties listed in Table 3 are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed bus stop.  A consultation notice and feedback form was hand delivered to each property listed in the table (where it is built and has a post box), and the consultation information was posted by mail to absentee owners.  The consultation occurred from Wednesday 4 October 2017 to Thursday 19 October 2017.  Also indicated in Table 3 is if Council staff received a submission in objection to the proposed bus stop during the consultation period.  The locations of the bus stops referred to in Table 3 are shown in Figure 5 and Attachment B.

Table 3:  Bus stop locations and properties impacted – consultation round 2

6.17    In total, two submissions were received during the second round of consultation.  One submission was in support, and the second submission was an objection to the proposed bus stop. 

6.18    The reasons for the objection were generally consistent with the first round of consultation.  The individual comments provided as feedback by the submitters, and staff responses is provided in Attachment C.

Consultation feedback – Environment Canterbury

6.19    Christchurch City Council provides bus stops to support the public transport services provided by Environment Canterbury.  Consequently, Environment Canterbury have also been consulted on for all bus stop options proposed. 

6.20    Environment Canterbury has provided feedback to confirm their full support to all bus stop options proposed for Skyhawk Road.

Recommended bus stop locations

6.21    The bus stops recommended for approval as part of Option 1 of this report, are as follows:

·   Adjacent 15 Skyhawk Road, and

·   Adjacent 16 Skyhawk Road.

6.22    Staff have found a suitable alternative to the proposed bus stop by 15 Skyhawk Road, however the recommended bus stop locations remain in adherence with the planned and identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint. 

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.24    Staff professional services costs - $2,500, which covers planning, consultation and approval.

6.25    Cost of Implementation - The estimated cost of this proposal is about $40,000.  The cost allows for the lay-bys adjacent to 15 and 16 Skyhawk Road to be lengthened to ensure general adherence to the recommended provisions concerning bus stop length, as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).

6.26    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Transport and City Streets, Operations Expenditure budget, includes maintenance of bus stop infrastructure, as and when it is needed.

6.27    Funding source for cost of implementation - Traffic Operations, Capital Expenditure budget for bus stop installation.

Legal Implications

6.28    The Christchurch City Council’s Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008, provides the Council with the authority to install stopping and parking restrictions by resolution.  The Council has delegated this authority for this part of the city, to the relevant community board.

6.29    The installation of any traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.  These markings will comply.

6.30    The proposed bus stops will need alteration to ensure general adherence to the recommended provisions as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  The main alteration is to length the length of the lay-by to ensure the stops are operationally efficient.

Risks and Mitigations    

6.31    Road users park in the marked bus stop box and on the No Stopping lines.  The risk is mitigated by vehicle users obeying the road rules, or by parking enforcement, if deemed necessary.

Implementation

6.32    Implementation dependencies - The implementation is dependent on the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approving the recommendations as described in Section 3. 

6.33    Implementation timeframe - The timeframe for implementation is dependent on the contractor’s workload, but should occur within three months of the proposed parking restriction resolutions being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.34    The advantages of this option include:

·   The location of the bus stops have been chosen to maximise passenger catchment to the surrounding residential areas.

·   Utilises the planned and identified bus stop locations in the Wigram subdivision blueprint, which indicated to prospective property buyers where bus stops are planned to be installed.

·   A seat will be installed at the bus stop adjacent to 16 Skyhawk Road.  This bus stop is likely to attract passengers who will need to wait for a bus, as the service connects Wigram to the city centre.  Whereas the bus stop adjacent to 15 Skyhawk Road, is likely to be used by people returning home, with little attraction to wait for a bus as it would be the second last stop in the Wigram end of the service.

6.35    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   A total net loss of four on-street parking spaces.  The on-street parking loss can be absorbed by the remaining provision of on-street parking in the area.

·   The bus stop by 15 Skyhawk Road is located in close proximity to three residential driveways.  The bus stop is likely to have a minor impact on the operation of these driveways, and buses are legally permitted to stop over driveways.  However the close proximity of the bus stop to the driveways might lead to real or perceived conflicts with the adjacent residents.  As part of Option 2, staff have considered an alternative location for this bus stop, which that would result in no driveways being located at the bus stop, in addition to the adjacent properties having a full height garden wall to minimise privacy intrusion.

·   The bus stop by 15 Skyhawk Road is positioned prior to a pedestrian crossing point on Skyhawk Road.  The impact is mitigated by the 2.5 metre wide lay-by that can be used as a bus stop.

·   The cost of implementation of Option 1 is more than Option 2.

7.   Option 2 – Mixture of first and second preference bus stops

7.1       The bus stops recommended for approval as part of Option 2 of this report, are as follows:

·   Adjacent 23 Skyhawk Road, and

·   Adjacent 16 Skyhawk Road.

7.2       A recent photograph of where the bus stop adjacent to 23 Skyhawk Road is proposed, is shown in Photo 3.

Implementation

7.13    Implementation dependencies - The implementation is dependent on the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.  If the preference by the Board is Option2, this means another report will be presented to the Board to resolve the parking restrictions associated with Option 2, that are not consistent with Option 1.

7.14    Implementation timeframe - The timeframe for implementation is dependent on the contractor’s workload, but should occur within three months of the proposed parking restriction resolutions being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   There are no driveways located at this location.  Vehicle access to the properties located adjacent to the bus stop is from a residential access laneway, accessed off Gartrell Road.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve a new bus stop located on Corsair Drive, in a lay-by adjacent to 17 Deal Street.  This bus stop will be used as the layover point for the number 60 bus service that terminates in Central Wigram.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated, following recent feedback from the public regarding buses that currently layover at the existing bus stop are restricting driver sight lines for an inappropriately long time.

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 assessing the impact of the project against the criteria set out in the Significance and Engagement assessment.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions on the west side of Corsair Drive commencing at a point 30 metres south of its intersection with The Runway and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 32 metres, be revoked.

2.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the west side of Corsair Drive commencing at a point 30 metres south of its intersection with The Runway and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 6.5 metres.

3.         Approve that a marked bus stop be installed on the west side of Corsair Drive commencing at a point 36.5 metres south of its intersection with The Runway and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 14 metres.

4.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the west side of Corsair Drive commencing at a point 50.5 metres south of its intersection with The Runway and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 11.5 metres.  

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.1 Contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Installation of a bus stop for layover purposes on Corsair Drive, adjacent to 17 Deal Street.

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Buses no longer layover at the existing bus stop on Corsair Drive, adjacent to the shopping centre carpark driveway.  This means restrictions to driver sight lines due to the bus laying over for periods of five to 20 minutes no longer occur, significantly improving the driver sight lines between Corsair Drive and the shopping centre driveway.  Driver sight lines will continue to be temporarily restricted when a bus has stopped to pick-up passengers.  However, as the activity is restricted to passenger pick-up, when such instances occur, the bus will only be stopped for a matter of seconds.  During this time, it is the driver’s responsibility when exiting the driveway to do so safely.  If this cannot be achieved, it is the driver’s responsibility to wait a few seconds until the bus has departed.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     A total net loss of four on-street parking spaces.  The on-street parking loss can be absorbed by the remaining provision of on and off-street parking in the Central Wigram area.  Use of the lay-by as a bus stop, utilises the planned and identified bus stop locations indicated in the agreed subdivision blueprint.

 


 

5.   Context/Background

Access to Public Transport

5.1       Central Wigram is located in the Halswell ward, in the south west of Christchurch, as indicated in Figure 1.

Figure 1:  Location of central Wigram

5.2       As indicated in Figure 2, Wigram is serviced by two public transport lines, the number 100 bus service and the number 60 bus service. 

Figure 2:  Wigram – existing bus services

5.3       The number 60 bus service operates between Southshore and Wigram via the city centre. The service operates from around 6am to around midnight, Monday to Friday, and over similar hours during the weekend.  On a weekday, the bus service predominantly runs every 30 minutes.  As one end of the bus service finishes in Central Wigram, it means the buses needs to wait (layover) at this location.  The layover period is necessary for the bus service to keep to its next scheduled start time.  Buses can layover from five to 20 minutes depending on the time of day.

5.4       The number 100 bus service does not operate from the bus stops on Corsair Drive, south of The Runway, however passengers may still connect between the two services, as such the number 100 bus service description has been included in this report.   The number 100 bus service operates between Halswell and The Palms Shirley via the University of Canterbury.  The service operates from around 6am to around 11pm, Monday to Friday, and over similar hours during the weekend.  On a weekday, the bus service runs every 15 minutes between 7am and 9am, and between 3pm and 6pm.  Outside these hours the bus service runs every 30 minutes.

Bus Stop Consultation

5.5       No submissions were received during the consultation period.  The consultation covered the period from Wednesday 1 November 2017 to Monday 20 November 2017.  The bus stop consultation process is described in Sections 6.8 to 6.9 of this report.

6.   Option 1 – Preferred bus stop location – Option 1

Option Description

6.1       The proposed bus stop would remove the function of the layover from the existing bus stop located on the opposite side of the road (Corsair Drive, east side of the road, between The Runway and shopping centre carpark driveway).  Staff have received complaints about buses that layover blocking the sight line of drivers exiting the shopping centre carpark on to Corsair Drive.  Staff agree that driver sight lines are restricted for an inappropriately long time, while a bus is stopped there during its layover.  The safer location for buses to layover is in the layby adjacent to 17 Deal Street, opposite the existing bus stop.

6.2       The location of the proposed layover bus stop, relative to the surrounding locality, inclusive of recently approved bus stops, is indicated in Figure 3.

Figure 3:  Location of proposed layover bus stop on Corsair Drive

6.3       Both the existing and the proposed bus stop locations were planned and identified as bus stops by the subdivision developer, Ngai Tahu Property Ltd, in the subdivision blueprint.  As such, the existing bus stop will be retained, and will operate as the first bus stop on the Wigram end of the number 60 bus service, which means it will be a pick-up location only for passengers.

6.4       For the most part, the proposed bus stops adhere to the recommended provisions as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  The areas in which the proposed bus stop differs to the Bus Stop Guidelines, is the kerb height and the length of the indented bus stop.  The kerb height along the roads of interest, are approximately 100 millimetres, which is lower than the minimum kerb height of 130 millimetres.  Accessibility concerns associated with the lower kerb height will be monitored through feedback raised by the public.  The length of the indented bus stop is about 32 metres.  The recommended length of an indented bus stop is 36 metres.  An onsite test, using a 13.5 metre tag axle bus, indicated no operational issue with the available space, as such no lengthening work is needed. 

Significance

6.5       The level of significance of this option is low, consistent with Section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance include consultation with adjacent property owners and occupiers, and engagement with Environment Canterbury as the relevant bus operator.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.6       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 Ngai Tahu, their culture and traditions. 

6.7       Whilst this option does not impact the culture and traditions of Ngai Tahu, they are the developers of the Wigram subdivision and have a vested interest in the provision of public transport, and associated bus stops within the development.

Community Views and Preferences – First Round of Consultation

6.8       The properties listed below are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed bus stop.  A consultation notice and feedback form was issued to each property listed below.  The consultation occurred from Wednesday 1 November 2017 to Monday 20 November 2017.  No feedback has been received from the adjacent property owners.

·   17 Deal Street, property adjacent the proposed bus stop, and

·   90 The Runway, property opposite the proposed bus stop.

6.9       The Christchurch City Council provides bus stops to support the public transport services provided by Environment Canterbury.  Consequently, Environment Canterbury have also been consulted, and the following is their feedback: 

6.9.1   Environment Canterbury supports moving the Corsair Drive layover stop (60 route) to the opposite side of the road to improve sight lines for drivers exiting the car park. We recognise parked buses could present a safety issue and appreciate the solution posed. The retaining of both stops provides a future-proofed solution in an area that is ideally sized and previously provisioned for a bus stop.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.11    Staff professional services costs - $800, which covers planning, consultation and approval.

6.12    Cost of Implementation - The estimated cost of this proposal is about $1,500. 

6.13    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Transport and City Streets, Operations Expenditure budget, includes maintenance of bus stop infrastructure, as and when it is needed.

6.14    Funding source for cost of implementation - Traffic Operations, Capital Expenditure budget for bus stop installation.

Legal Implications

6.15    The Christchurch City Council’s Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008, provides the Council with the authority to install stopping and parking restrictions by resolution.  The Council has delegated this authority for this part of the city, to the relevant community board.

6.16    The installation of any traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.  These markings will comply.

6.17    For the most part, the proposed bus stops adhere to the recommended provisions as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).  The areas in which the proposed bus stop differs to the Bus Stop Guidelines, is the kerb height and the length of the indented bus stop.  The kerb height along the roads of interest, are approximately 100 millimetres, which is lower than the minimum kerb height of 130 millimetres.  Accessibility concerns associated with the lower kerb height will be monitored through feedback raised by the public.  The length of the indented bus stop is about 32 metres.  The recommended length of an indented bus stop is 36 metres.  An onsite test, using a 13.5 metre tag axle bus, indicated no operational issue with the available space, as such no lengthening work is needed. 

Risks and Mitigations   

6.18    Road users park in the marked bus stop box and on the no stopping lines.  The risk is mitigated by vehicle users obeying the road rules, or by parking enforcement, if deemed necessary.

Implementation

6.19    Implementation dependencies - The implementation is dependent on the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approving the staff recommendations as described in Section 3.

6.20    Implementation timeframe - The timeframe for implementation is dependent on the contractor’s workload, but should occur within three months of the proposed parking restriction resolutions being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.21    The advantages of this option include:

·   Buses no longer layover at the existing bus stop on Corsair Drive, adjacent the shopping centre carpark driveway.  This means restrictions to driver sight lines due to the bus laying over for periods of five to 20 minutes no longer occur, significantly improving the driver sight lines between Corsair Drive and shopping centre driveway.  Driver sight lines will continue to be temporarily restricted when a bus has stopped to pick-up passengers.  However, as the activity is restricted to passenger pick-up, when such instances occur, the bus will only be stopped for a matter of seconds.  During this time, it is the driver’s responsibility when exiting the driveway to do so safely.  If this cannot be achieved it is the driver’s responsibility to wait a few seconds until the bus has departed.

6.22    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   A total net loss of four on-street parking spaces.  The on-street parking loss can be absorbed by the remaining provision of on and off-street parking in the Central Wigram area.  Use of the lay-by as a bus stop, utilities the planned and identified bus stop locations indicated in the agreed subdivision blueprint.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Do nothing – no new layover bus stop, the layover functionality remains unchanged to the existing bus stop.

Significance

7.2       Not applicable

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       Refer to Sections 6.6 and 6.7.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       The origin to this report is that staff have received feedback from the public that the buses that currently layover at the existing bus stop are restricting driver sight lines for an inappropriately long time.  Staff agree with this feedback, and recommend addressing this issue by allowing buses to layover in the lay-by adjacent to 17 Deal Street, opposite the existing bus stop.  If the layover location remains unchanged, it is likely further complaints about restricted driver sights will continued to be raised with staff.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       Not applicable

Financial Implications

7.6       Staff professional services costs - $800, which covers planning, consultation and approval process incurred irrespective of the Community Board’s decision or recommendation.

7.7       Cost of Implementation – Not applicable 

7.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – Not applicable

7.9       Funding source for the cost of implementation – Not applicable

Legal Implications

7.10    Staff are unaware of any legal implications the ‘Do Nothing’ option would pose to the Council.

Risks and Mitigations

7.11    This option has the potential to not contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport, mitigation is by means of Option 1.

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:

·   No loss to on-street parking.

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Driver sight lines remain unchanged, that is when a bus is parked during the layover period, driver sight lines are restricted to about 30 metres.  The current restriction to driver sight lines has been identified as an issue for drivers exiting the driveway on to Corsair Drive.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve a bus stop on the west side of Rotherham Street in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report staff generated.

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 assessing the impact of the project against the criteria set out in the Significance and Engagement assessment.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions on the western side of Rotherham Street commencing at a point 47 metres north of its intersection with Dilworth Street and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 51 metres, be revoked.

2.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to a maximum time period of 60 minutes on the western side of Rotherham Street commencing at a point 47 metres north of its intersection with Dilworth Street and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 25 metres.

3.         Approve that a bus stop, for pick up and drop off only, be installed on the western side of Rotherham Street commencing at a point 72 metres north of its intersection with Dilworth Street and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 26 metres; these restrictions are to apply 9am to 5pm, Monday to Sunday inclusive.

4.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to a maximum time period of 60 minutes on the western side of Rotherham Street commencing at a point 72 metres north of its intersection with Dilworth Street and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 26 metres; these restrictions are to apply 8am to 9am, and 5pm to 6pm, Monday to Sunday inclusive.

5.         Note that the bus stop is being provided in this Rotherham Street location on the understanding that the tour operator is using the route “from Riccarton Bush via Kahu Road, Straven Road, Clarence Street, Dilworth Street to Rotherham Street, then onto Riccarton Road to travel towards the city”.

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approve a Bus Stop on Rotherham Street (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides room for buses to stop to drop off passengers on Rotherham Street to access Westfield Riccarton Mall

·     Improves tourism access to Westfield Riccarton

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes four short term (P60) on-street parking spaces

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       A tour bus operator, Hassle Free Tours, approached Council staff in July 2017 regarding a new hop on/hop off service they are intending to start and requested a bus stop on Rotherham Street to facilitate access to Westfield Riccarton. A map of the general area to provide context, is shown in Attachment B.

5.2       The proposed bus stop was discussed at a Seminar of the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board on 8 August 2017. Some concerns were raised regarding the route that the tour operator may use, however staff are only in a position to advise the tour operator on their route as the operator does not require Council approval for their route (see sections 5.10 to 5.14 for further details).

5.3       The tour operator intends to operate to a seasonal timetable, with a half hourly frequency during the main tourist season (summer) and an hourly frequency during the off-season.

5.4       Public consultation for the proposed bus stop commenced on 3 November 2017 and ended on 17 November 2017. At the time of the start of consultation, the tour operator had not confirmed to staff the route they intended to take.

5.5       Following concerns raised by members of the public regarding the route used by the tour operator through the consultation process, Council staff have been working closely with the tour operator to finalise their route through the Riccarton area. The route from Riccarton Bush is via Kahu Road, Straven Road, Clarence Street, Dilworth Street to Rotherham Street, then onto Riccarton Road to travel towards the city. The changes agreed with the tour operator provide better utilisation of the road network and safety of all road users and the community.

5.6       This finalised route requires the bus stop to be on the opposite side of Rotherham Street from that in the consultation plan (on the west side instead of the east side). Adjacent businesses were visited by staff to discuss the need for this change. There was some concern over the loss of parking but the majority of businesses were supportive of the proposal.

Proposed Bus Stop

5.7       The proposed bus stop is not intended to be reserved for any single bus or tour operator. Any bus may use the proposed bus stop provided they are doing so for the purposes of picking up or dropping off passengers and the driver remains with the vehicle at all times.

5.8       Demand for parking in this general area is very high due to the proximity with Westfield Riccarton. The tour operator has indicated that they only require the bus stop between 9am to 5pm. This will allow the space to be utilised for parking at other times. The Christchurch City Council Parking Strategy prioritises parking for buses over all other types of parking.

5.9       The bus stop is proposed to be on the west side of Rotherham Street, on the approach to the zebra crossing. The parking bays here provide room for vehicles to park without blocking live traffic lanes and without obstructing visibility for the zebra crossing.

Concerns over Route

5.10    During consultation, a number of objections were received, many of which were primarily objecting to the tour operator using nearby Rimu Street and Titoki Street on their route.

5.11    It was queried whether the operator required a permit to travel on these streets.

5.12    Heavy vehicles require permits from the local road controlling authority to travel on the legal road if the maximum legal weight of the vehicle exceeds:

·     44 tonnes; or

·     45 tonnes for 7 axle combinations with a minimum wheel base of 16.8 metres; or

·     46 tonnes for 8 axle combinations with a minimum wheel base of 17.4 metres; or

·     The weight on any individual axle of your vehicle exceeds the legal weight; or

·     The vehicle weight exceeds the weight restriction posted on the road or bridge.

5.13    Generally, buses do not exceed the maximum legal weight nor the maximum axle weight. Any vehicle exceeding 3.5 tonnes is classified as a “Heavy Vehicle”, but it is not overweight and does not require a permit unless it exceeds the maximum legal weight as referred to in section 5.12. Examples of vehicles that may exceed the maximum weights include (but are not limited to) vehicles with large indivisible loads such as mobile cranes or construction materials such as steel bridge beams.

5.14    Any vehicle is permitted to travel on any public road provided they comply with traffic regulations. Environment Canterbury and the Council do, however, consult on all public Metro bus routes and bus stop locations. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board holds delegated authority to approve and revoke parking restrictions in this part of the city, including bus stops locations.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install a bus stop on Rotherham Street (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install a bus stop on the west side of Rotherham Street in accordance with 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 reflect this.

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.

6.5       Consultation for this project was undertaken from Wednesday 1 November 2017 to Thursday 16 November 2017 via Have Your Say to collect feedback. Of those that submitted, two supported the plan, 10 did not support the plan, and four had some concerns.

6.6       Letters were hand delivered to all businesses on Rotherham Street and discussions were held with several of these businesses at this time. There was a concern about the loss of parking from one business owner, however, all businesses that were talked to agreed that the extra people coming to the area via bus was beneficial. Local residents associations were also notified of the project.

6.7       Of those that submitted two supported the plan, 10 did not support the plan and four submitters had some concerns.

6.8       The main issue raised from those submitters that did not support the plan was the effect of the route the bus company was taking on Rata Street residents.

6.9       Others issues raised were:

6.9.1   Parking loss

6.9.2   Heavy traffic on the Kahu Street bridge

6.9.3   The bus limiting visibility

6.9.4   How the fees will apply to a private company

6.10    A verbatim copy of all feedback received has been circulated to elected members separately to this report.

6.11    A letter has been sent to all submitters and businesses along Rotherham Street advising of the outcome of the consultation and the changes made to the original proposal, 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 and the Community Board report.

6.17    The installation of any traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.  These markings will comply.

Risks and Mitigations

2.         Approve that the ordinary meetings of the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board will generally be followed by a Seminar and/or Workshop.

3.         Hold a Public Forum at its second ordinary meeting of the month.

4.         Informally connect as Board members on topical issues, and/or with the communities of Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton on matters of mutual interest as required, on the Tuesday of the Council’s monthly ‘community week’ generally from 4pm to 6pm.                                             

 

4.   Key Points

Meeting Dates

4.1       The staff recommendation in this report to set the Board’s meeting dates for the period  January 2018 to December 2018, is based on:

Ÿ The holding generally of two ordinary Board meetings each month.

Ÿ Other known commitments in the Council’s meetings calendar.

Ÿ The avoidance of date clashes with other community board meetings.


 

 

4.2       The venue proposed for the Board’s meetings is the Board Room at the Fendalton Service Centre, corner Jeffreys and Clyde Roads.

4.3       The key driver for this proposed venue change is to improve operational effectiveness and efficiency.

4.4       Staff involvement to set up and then reset the room after each Board meeting at Fendalton is estimated to require 20 minutes compared to the Upper Riccarton Library venue which throughout the year, requires 1.5 hours of additional collective staff time to set up and reset the room at the conclusion of each meeting. The Fendalton venue is purpose equipped and formatted, has a larger capacity, and offers convenient access and parking for attendees.  A change in venue would also enable the community to utilise the room at the Upper Riccarton Library for activities and programmes.

4.5       The Council’s monthly ‘community week’ would provide all Board members with an opportunity to informally connect with each other, and/or with their communities in Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton on matters of mutual interest as required. It is suggested that the Tuesday of each month’s ‘community week’ be set aside for this purpose, generally from 4pm to 6pm.

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

3.3.1   The Board continues to receive strategic, technical and procedural advice mainly through an ongoing programme of Board seminars and/or workshops generally held at the conclusion of the Board’s twice monthly ordinary meetings.  

3.4       Annual Plan and Long Term Plan Matters

3.4.1   The Chairpersons and Deputy Chairpersons of the Community Boards attended a Workshop with the Mayor and Councillors on 29 November 2017 to continue the joint input to date into the preparation of the Council’s Draft Long Term Plan 2018-28.

3.5       Development of Civil Defence Emergency Plans

3.5.1   In the work stream of Council staff, there is a city-wide development called the Community Resilience Planning Project.  A presentation is to be made to the Council soon and this will be followed by workshops with each Community Board in the New Year to present an overview of the project, processes and timeframes.

3.5.2   The Oak Development Trust have initiated a project developing emergency response planning with migrant communities, particularly in the Riccarton area.  Emergency Preparedness Booklets have been created and printed into a variety of languages that reflect the ethnic diversity of the Riccarton area.  These were recently launched at the Riccarton Street Party.

 

3.5.3   Following expressions of interest from within the Riccarton community, work is commencing on the development of an Emergency Response Plan for the wider Riccarton area.  It is envisaged, as has transpired in other Christchurch communities, that the purpose of this plan will be to help guide the community’s response and preparedness for an emergency.  It will be a ‘living’ document that will incorporate significant levels of community engagement and direction.  A seminar will be held with the Board early in 2018 to discuss the Board’s involvement in the plan.

4.   Community Board Funded Projects

4.1       Mas Oyama Kyokushin Karate

Using the Strengthening Communities allocated funding, Mas Oyama Kyokushin Karate has been able to purchase safety mats which has enabled new covers for 90 per cent of the floor in the dojo. This has resulted in the group being able to host the South Island Black belt grading event where two of their students achieved a second black belt.

With the new safety equipment, students have also been able to train better for national and regional competitions. Kaori Ikushima, a student at the dojo has just received second place in the National Full Contact Veteran Womens’ section.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.2       The Men2Cook programme pilot which the Oak Development Trust is running, has been postponed until early in 2018.  The unavailability of the tutor over two of the proposed dates in November and December 2017, led to the decision that it was preferable to run the programme continuously rather than break over the Christmas/New Year period.

4.3       The Riccarton West Community Garden is again running its popular Christmas Dinner on 15 December 2017.  This was held last year for people who have supported the garden and received produce throughout the year.  The focus for 2017 will be celebrating and honouring the elderly people in the local community.  The meal is made from fresh vegetables grown from the garden with donations of other foodstuffs including meat and desserts.  70 people attended the 2016 dinner.

Performance

Delta’s audited quality performance for October 2017 was 88 per cent breakdown below:


 

Delta’s audited quality performance for November 2017 is 85 per cent; breakdown below:

 

 

Customer service requests and phone complaints have been received about weeds in drainage reserves in Wigram Skies. The functionality of the drainage reserves means that weeds are more difficult to control due to prolific growth rates resulting from high water tables. As this water table drops over summer it is expected that weeds will be brought under more effective control.

 


 

Capital Works Projects

Leslie Park - Sports Field Renewal - the turf is establishing well and has had its first cut. Fertiliser application ha been applied and the handover back to the Council is on schedule for December.
