Pursuant to Section 22 of Christchurch City Council’s Standing Orders, the following Notice of Motion was submitted by Yani Johanson.

Notice of motion to the Linwood/Central/Heathcote Community Board meeting 29 January 2018

Lower Heathcote River Landscape and Maintenance Plan

Noting the ongoing issues with the lack of maintenance and the poor overall condition of the landscaping along the lower Heathcote River.

That the Linwood/Central/Heathcote Community Board:

1.      Agree to the development of a Lower Heathcote River Landscape and Maintenance Plan

2.      Request staff prepare a draft plan with urgency for public engagement and consultation to be reported back to the Community Board by March 2018

Background information

The Heathcote River area (including the Woolston cut) from the Opawa Bridge to the Estuary has been subject to numerous complaints regarding maintenance.

It has had very little earthquake repair done.  It lacks a coherent landscape plan.

The landscaping has been allowed to overgrow, the weeds are out of control, and rubbish bins/footpaths are falling apart. 

As part of the dredging of the cut and river there is an opportunity to re-examine this important ecological and recreational corridor. This should be done with the local community to develop a clear plan to improve the local environment rather than simply reinstate what is already there.

Monday 22 January 2018

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the provision of P120 parking restrictions on two sections of Holly Road in accordance with Attachment A.

1.2       The site is located within the road network as shown in Attachment B.

Origin of Report

1.3       This report was staff generated in response to a request from a local resident situated on the western end Holly Road.

1.4       These measures have been requested to provide short stay parking opportunities for visitors at this location and retain overnight long stay parking for residents.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessment of the magnitude of the problem and the number of properties affected by the preferred option.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to 120 minutes on the north west side of Holly Road commencing at a point 44 metres north east of its intersection with Papanui Road and extending in a north easterly direction for a distance of 12 metres.

2.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to 120 minutes on the south east side of Holly Road commencing at a point 44 metres north east of its intersection with Papanui Road and extending in a north easterly direction for a distance of 12 metres.

 

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 – Option 1 – Provide P120 restrictions (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides increased parking opportunity for visitors to local residents

·     Provides on-street opportunities for deliveries to local residents

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A local resident on Holly Road expressed concern that there was significant pressure for on-street parking at this location. For the majority of the day, the street is claimed to be parked by workers and that there are rare opportunities for visitors to park here. The resident indicated that she had already spoken with neighbours on the street who shared the same concern.

5.2       Holly Road is located close to Papanui Road and situated close to several motels. At present the street has unrestricted parking on both sides, with no stopping restrictions located close to the intersection with Papanui Road. 

5.3       Staff visited the site at different times of the day and agree with the intensity of parking demands. The majority of the local properties do have off-street parking, though typically have one or two parking spaces, thus requiring visitors to park elsewhere.

5.4       Consequently a request for daytime short stay opportunities has been made. The problem has been confirmed to be between Monday and Friday only, which suggests that the main demands are by daytime workers.

5.5       In accordance with the local request, the proposal restricts the equivalent of four parking spaces. These have been located centrally along this particular block and divided into two discrete sections on opposite sides, for the convenience of all the residents on this block.

5.6       The installation of the 120 minute restrictions at this location will provide short stay opportunities and retain longer stay parking between 6pm and 8am, together with unrestricted weekend parking. 


 

6.   Option 1 – Provide P120 restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Provide P120 restrictions on the east side of part of Holly Road 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.

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.

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       Letters of consultation with a site plan have been issued to the tenants and property owners at 1-14 Holly Road and 76-88 Papanui Road.

6.5       Three letters in support were received, including the Casino Court Motor Lodge.  Staff received one phone call from a resident who objected to any restrictions being introduced and did not wish to be named.

6.6       Whilst there has been one objection, staff consider that the community response is generally in support of the proposal.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation - $700 to provide 4 signs and sign posts.

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

6.10    Funding source – Traffic Operations budget.

Legal Implications

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

6.12    The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.13    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.14    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.15    Implementation dependencies - Linwood-Central-Heathcote board approval.

6.16    Implementation timeframe – approximately 6 weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.17    The advantages of this option include:

·   Provides increased parking opportunity for visitors to local properties

·   Provides opportunities for deliveries to residents properties

6.18    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Results in long stay parking occurring  elsewhere

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Retain the existing unrestricted parking

Significance

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

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       This option is inconsistent with the request for introducing short stay restrictions matching the requirements of local residents.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6       Cost of Implementation - $0

7.7       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - $0

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the conversion of an existing on-street P30 parking space to a mobility parking space on Stanmore Road in accordance with Attachment A.

1.2       The site is located within the road network as shown in Attachment B. Annotated photographs of the proposed site is shown in Attachment C

Origin of Report

1.3       This report was staff generated in response to a request from the Te Whare Roimata Trust who are associated with the Stanmore Book and Post Shop in Linwood Village

1.4       These measures have been requested to ensure that the local amenities in Linwood Village can be accessed by customers with a mobility issue within a reasonable distance of the entrance.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessment of the magnitude of the problem and the number of properties affected by the preferred option.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Revoke all existing parking and stopping restrictions on the east side of Stanmore Road commencing at its intersection with Gloucester Street and ending at a point 64 metres south of its intersection with Gloucester Street

2.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to 30 minutes on the east side of Stanmore Road commencing at its intersection with Gloucester Street and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 38 metres.

3.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be reserved for vehicles with an approved disabled person's parking permit, prominently displayed in the vehicle, in accordance with section 6.4.1 of the Land Transport - Road User Rule 2004 on the east side of Stanmore Road, be restricted to 60 minutes, commencing at a point 38 metres south of southern kerbline of Gloucester Street and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 7 metres.

4.         Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to 30 minutes on the east side of Stanmore Road commencing at a point 45 metres south of its intersection with Gloucester Street and extending in a southerly direction and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 19 metres.

 

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 – Install a mobility parking space on Stanmore Road (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 a convenient location for drivers with a mobility impairment to access local amenities

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Results in the loss of a P30 parking space for the public in general

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A request was formally received by the Stanmore Post and Book Shop for a mobility parking at this location. The request indicated that the Post and Book Shop and adjacent businesses have regular customers that have mobility difficulties and yet there are no dedicated on-street parking spaces in this area. Customers often have to compete for parking space on Stanmore Road and experience pain and discomfort due to the distance between the available parking space and the local amenities.

5.2       Staff have investigated the local street environment and agree with the concern. There are parking opportunities nearby, though no mobility spaces. This section of Stanmore Road is currently subject to P30 parking restrictions.

5.3       As well as the Post and Book Shop, the site is adjacent to a takeaway shop, dairy and supermarket which will also attract customers and staff with mobility issues,

5.4       The installation of a mobility parking space will ensure that visitors and staff that require particular mobility needs are able to access local amenities with a reasonable level of convenience and travel distance.  The proximity of dropped kerbs at the site access to 108 at this location will also provide the assurance of wheelchair access close to the designated space.

5.5       As this section is subject to P30 restriction, staff consider it appropriate that the mobility parking is subject to 60 minute restrictions.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install a mobility parking space on Stanmore Avenue (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Replace a short section of P30 parking with a mobility parking space adjacent to 108 Stanmore Road 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.

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.

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       Initially the mobility space was proposed to be outside 108A (the Fish and Chip Shop). This location was initially selected, since this was very close to the block of shops.

6.5       Letters of consultation with a site plan were sent to the owners and tenants at nearby properties, namely 96-108 Stanmore Road.

6.6       Three responses were received which supported a mobility park being provided, though requesting an amendment to the location. The preferred location was outside the vacant section (no.108) which is situated between the Fish and Chip shop and the SuperValue supermarket at 96.

6.7       Staff evaluated the requests and considered that the preferred location would be reasonable and would remain close to the local amenities.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.9       Cost of Implementation - $500 to install road markings and provide sign and post.

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

6.11    Funding source – Traffic Operations budget.

Legal Implications

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

·     Provides a convenient location for drivers with a mobility impairment to access local  amenities

6.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Results in the loss of a parking space for the public in general

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Retain the existing P30 parking

Significance

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

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       This option is inconsistent with the request for accessible parking to assist visitors with mobility issues.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the renaming of Edmond Street to Edmonds Street, to correspond with the original name of the family.

1.2       The site is located within the road network as shown in Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.3       This report was staff generated in response to a request from a family descendent who has provided evidence of the original street naming which has been incorrectly named by the City Council over a long period.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessment of the magnitude of the problem and the number of properties affected by the preferred option.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Approve that the existing street name of Edmond Street in Woolston be changed to Edmonds Street.

2.         Approval that the street name plates be replaced accordingly.

 

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 – Change the street name to Edmonds 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:

·   Is consistent with the original family name who were associated with the local area

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Results in residents needing to change their property details.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A request was received by the great grandson of John Edmonds, who was an influential local businessman and philanthropist.  The request related to renaming Edmond Street to Edmonds Street.

5.2       Edmond Street is located in a residential area and services approximately 40 properties. The street is on the site of the former TJ Edmonds ‘Sure to Rise Baking Powder Factory’. Edmonds Factory Garden, also known as Edmonds Park, also bears his name.

5.3       Staff have investigated the origins of the street naming through the City Libraries team who provide archived historical information concerning the origins of every street in Christchurch.  This confirmed that Edmonds Street dates from 1878 at the latest (refer to attachment B) which arose from the factory location, though since 1893 was named Edmond Street for no apparent reason.

5.4       Staff have investigated via City Council records whether there are other similar named locations in Christchurch such as Edmund(s) or Edmond(s) Road, Avenue, Lane or Courts etc. It has been confirmed there are no other streets with similar names and there would be no risk of confusion in terms of mail being posted to the wrong address.

5.5       Staff consider that the request is reasonable and recommend that the name is changed in accordance with the family request.


 

6.   Option 1 – Change the street name to Edmonds Street (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Change the existing street name of Edmond Street to Edmonds Street.

Significance

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

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.

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       Letters of consultation with a site plan have been issued to the tenants and property owners at all addresses on Edmond Street.

6.5       One letter was received from a resident who did not object to the renaming itself, though was concerned about:

·   How NZ post and courier companies would handle post related to the original name

·   Assistance to residents to notify organisations such as IRD, NZTA, Banks, insurers and EQC.

6.6       In response, staff have considered this concern as follows:

·   Staff have checked that there are no other street addresses in Christchurch that bear a similar address (e.g. Edmond(s) Road/Place/Avenue or Edmund(s)) which should not result in post wrongly directed for this reason. Addresses would be accompanied by post codes which would also ensure that post is delivered correctly. Staff have contacted NZ post to provide a formal response, which is currently awaited.

·   Residents would be expected to inform interested parties of the change of address when appropriate or necessary and indicate that this was outside their control.

6.7       Staff acknowledge that it can be a time consuming process for residents to advise of their change of address to various providers. However, internet applications make it an easy process to update personal details including addresses from time to time.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.9       Cost of Implementation - $500 to install replacement street name blades and staff time to notify affected parties such as LINZ.

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

6.11    Funding source – Traffic Operations budget.

Legal Implications

6.12    The power for Council is contained in section 319(j) of the Local Government Act to name or alter the name of any road.

6.13    Christchurch City Council resolved on 2 November 1993 a policy for the naming and renaming of roads and rights of way.

6.14    The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. Reference to the naming of roads is included within Part 2 section 2.8.

Risks and Mitigations

6.15    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.16    Implementation dependencies - Linwood-Central-Heathcote board approval.

6.17    Implementation timeframe – approximately 6 weeks to change the street signs once the area contractor receives the request.  Staff will advise LINZ and NZ post within this period.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.18    The advantages of this option include:

·   Is consistent with the original family name who were associated with the local area

6.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Results in residents needing to change their property details.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Retain the existing street name

Significance

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

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       This option is inconsistent with the request by the Edmonds family descendant.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6       Cost of Implementation - $0

7.7       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - $0

7.8       Funding source – not applicable

Legal Implications

7.9       Not applicable

Risks and Mitigations

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the installation of five bus passenger shelters at four existing bus stops, and one new bus stop relocation installed as part of the Quarryman’s Cycle Route.  All bus stops are located within the governance area of the Community Board.  The shelter proposals 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 37 Aldwins Road 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 Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board resolve to:

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.

·     Remediating the bus stop parking restrictions adjacent to 37 Aldwins Road, will result in the loss of one on-street parking space.  Remediating the bus stop to the recommended minimum length for a bus stop ensures that the buses servicing this stop have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb at all times.  The loss of one on-street parking space can be absorbed by the surrounding provision of on-street parking in the area.

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 majority of 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. 

·   64 ave. pax/weekday:  314 Gloucester Street,

·   37 ave. pax/weekday:  Gloucester Street, adjacent to 110 Stanmore Road,

·   45 ave. pax/weekday:  1008 Ferry Road, and

·   48 ave. pax/weekday:  37 Aldwins Road.

5.2       Customer requests for a bus passenger shelter have been received for the bus stop on Gloucester Street adjacent to 110 Stanmore Road and the bus stop adjacent to 1008 Ferry Road.

5.3       Due to the changes that are occurring to the bus stops on Antigua Street as part of the Quarryman’s Cycle Route, the shelter installed at the new bus stop by 105 Antigua Street (Braddons Reserve) will be relocated from a redundant bus stop adjacent to 35E Antigua Street (Crohane Place).

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

Figure 1:  Location of bus stops – Gloucester Street

Figure 2:  Location of bus stop – 37 Aldwins Road

Figure 3:  Location of bus stop – 1008 Ferry Road

Figure 4:  Location of bus stop – 105 Antigua Street (Braddon Reserve)

5.5       Council staff propose to install a shelter in the locations outlined in the attached bus passenger shelter plans (refer to Attachments A to E). 

5.6       Environment Canterbury is responsible for providing public transport services.  The Christchurch City Council is responsible for providing public transport infrastructure.  The installation of the bus passenger shelters are supported by Environment Canterbury.

5.7       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.

5.8       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.

5.9       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 37 Aldwins Road does not meet the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guideline recommendations.  The existing bus stop provision is 13.5 metres, 12.5 metres short of the recommended minimum provision of 26 metres.  Due to the potential for a vehicle to park in front or to the rear of the bus stop, staff recommend the bus stop parking restrictions be corrected to adhere to the recommended minimum length for a bus stop.  The additional parking restrictions removes one on-street parking space.

5.10    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.

5.11    Consultation has been carried out with the affected properties.  The consultation period occurred from Wednesday 8 November 2017 to Friday 24 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 6.7 to 6.10.

6.   Option 1 - Proposed Bus Passenger Shelter Installations

Option Description

6.1       Install five bus passenger shelters, and remediate associated bus stop line marking provisions.  Of the five bus passenger shelters, four are to be installed at existing bus stops.  The fifth shelter is to be installed at a new bus stop relocation, which is associated with changes to bus stop locations on Antigua Street as part of the Quarryman’s Cycle Route.


 

Shelter Types

6.2       The proposed bus passenger shelters to be installed at the two sites on Gloucester Street and 37 Aldwins Road will be a council shelter type.  The image below is an example of what the shelter is likely to look like.

6.3       If Adshel NZ Ltd are agreeable to the provision of a bus passenger shelter by 1008 Ferry Road the image below is an example of what the shelter is likely to look like. If Adshel NZ Ltd do not wish to provide a shelter at this location, a council shelter will be provided as per the image in section 6.2 above.

6.4       Due to the changes that are occurring to the bus stops on Antigua Street as part of the Quarryman’s Cycle Route, the shelter installed at the new bus stop by 105 Antigua Street will be relocated from a redundant bus stop adjacent to 35E Antigua Street (Crohane Place).  The image below is an example of what the shelter looks like.

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 includes the consultation with occupier and owner of property likely to be injuriously affected by the erection of the shelter.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.6       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 Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.7       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 Wednesday 8 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 Friday 24 November 2017. 

·   314 (1 to 4) Gloucester Street,

·   Gloucester Street, adjacent to 110 Stanmore Road,

·   1008 (1 to 6) and 1004g Ferry Road,

·   37 (1 to 8) and 33 (1 to 4) Aldwins Road, and

·   105 Antigua Street, adjacent to Braddon Reserve (Christchurch City Council).

6.8       The property owner of 110 Stanmore Road returned the feedback form indicating approval to have a bus passenger shelter installed.  A tenant of 37 Aldwins Road returned the feedback form indicating approval to the shelter and the bus stop line marking remediation.

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 remaining properties listed in section 6.7. 

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 - $5,500, 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 $48,000.  The capital cost might reduce to $36,000, if Adshel NZ Ltd are agreeable to the provision of a bus passenger shelter that incorporates advertising at 1008 Ferry Road.  The cost to install the bus passenger shelter at 105 Antigua Street has not been included, as it has been financially accounted for as part of the Quarryman’s Cycle Route project. 

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 Linwood-Central-Heathcote 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.

·   Remediating the bus stop parking restrictions adjacent to 37 Aldwins Road, will result in the loss of one on-street parking space.  Remediating the bus stop to the recommended minimum length for a bus stop ensures that the buses servicing this stop have sufficient space to straighten and stop parallel to the kerb at all times.  The loss of one on-street parking space can be absorbed by the surrounding provision of on-street parking in the area.

7.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       No bus passenger shelters are installed at the locations identified in section 3 of this report.  The bus stop line marking provision at 37 Aldwins 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 - $5,500, 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 of Report

This report provides information on initiatives and issues current within the Community Board area, to provide the Board with a strategic overview and inform sound decision making.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Receive the Area Update for January 2018.

2.         Nominate two Board representatives to attend the Canterbury Water Management Strategy Zone Committee’s Community Waterway Workshops.

3.         Consider items for inclusion on Newsline.

 

 

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Memos/Information/Advice to the Board

3.1.1   Summit Road Proposed Prohibited Times on Road Restrictions – Since the Board were requested to nominate two Board members to represent the Board at a joint meeting of the relevant Community Boards and the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee to make a recommendation to the Council on the Summit Road – Proposed Prohibited Times on Road Restrictions a further proposal has been made. The proposal is to have a hearings panel convened.

A report was presented to the Council’s 25 January meeting to convene a hearings panel and for the Council to confirm the hearings panel membership.  An update will be given verbally at the Board’s 29 January 2018 meeting.

3.1.2   Community Waterway Workshops- The Canterbury Water Management Strategy Zone Committee are hosting community waterway workshops during February and early March 2018.  The Board has been asked to nominate two representatives who will attend one of the workshops.  Resident, who left their contact details, after the community water survey and representatives from the Youth Council have also been invited.  The workshops are being held:

·   Monday 19 February Fendalton Service Centre Board Room

·   Wednesday 21 February Halswell Library Hao Room

·   Monday 26 February Papanui Service Centre Board Room

·   Thursday 1 March Beckenham Service Centre Board Room

Further details will be sent to the Board representatives.

3.1.3   North Avon Road from North Parade to River Road – at the Board’s 9 October 2017 the Board requested:

Staff advice on traffic calming on the section of North Avon Road from North Parade to River Road as residents and Avebury House users have highlighted a speeding issue with drivers going to the red zone sections of River Road.

·   Staff advise:

Based on our records there have been no recorded crashes (between 2011 and 2015) on this section of North Avon Road.  Consequently, there is little scope for justifying a future traffic calming capital project involving speed humps, buildouts, etc.

 

However, having visited the site staff consider that there is scope to improve safety by some simple improvements.  This is because at present there are no road markings at all between North Parade and River Road. (A 300m section).  

 

The following two aerial maps are for 2017 and 2010 respectively.

2017

2010

As can be seen in the 2010 map, there should be:

 

·   Centre line markings on North Avon Rd (North Parade to River Rd)

·   Give way markings at Flesher Ave (limit lines, side road centre lines and give way triangles)

·   Intersection markings at River Road (showing the bend markings)

Whilst these are not traffic calming measure in a direct sense, staff consider that re-introducing these will improve road safety and have arranged for the markings to be reinstated.

3.1.4   Board Priorities Action Updates – at the Board’s 2 October 2017 meeting the Board requested staff to list on each Area Report progress on specific Board Projects and Action Requests.  Please refer to Attachment A.

3.1.5   Graffiti Statistics – Attached is the bi-monthly report on the suburban statistics of the graffiti in the Christchurch City area. (Attachment B)

3.2       Board area Consultations/Engagement/Submission opportunities

3.2.1   At time of writing this report the following consultation will be open to the community within the Community Board Area:

5.3       Events report back

5.3.1   There is no update at time of writing this report.

6.   Significant Community Issues, Events and Projects in the Board Area

6.1       Inner City East Revitalisation Project. The Board has requested monthly updates on the progress. The last update was on 6 November 2017.

6.1.1   The project team has established a four stage process over the next two years to complete the revitalisation plan.

Stage 1: November 2017-February 2018. Widespread consultation with the community to further establish hopes, aspirations and concerns, raise awareness of the plan and establish a detailed project plan. Further analysis of the demographic and statistical characteristics of the area. Develop a project action plan and budget including principles, scope, approach and timeframes.

Stage 2: March 2018-June 2018. Establish a broadly representative working/governance group and terms of reference to guide the revitalisation process.  More formal surveying and consultation methods to gather further information from the community. Establish draft priorities for action, possible solutions and strategies. Identify early actions that can be taken for “quick wins”. Seek funding and resourcing to implement solutions and initiatives. This will likely include a submission to the Council during the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan consultation period.

Stage 3: July 2018-December 2018. Discuss draft priorities for action widely within the community. Develop an Action Plan to reflect community aspirations, issues and priorities. Investigate how solutions and initiatives can be put into action. Undertake early actions identified in Stage 2.

Stage 4: 2019. Implementation.

Throughout all stages of the project an iterative process of engage > analyse > feedback > engage will be used to ensure the plan remains on track with community aspirations. Regular updates will be provided to the community via a monthly newsletter and other information.

6.1.2   Regular community events and meetings, targeted consultations (e.g. with local Business owners and those without homes), discussions at community facilities such as the café and arts centre, articles in the News on ICE newsletter and general networking opportunities have been used to establish and develop the community’s priorities.  These will be used to develop the survey and more formal consultation methods to be undertaken in Stage 2.

6.1.3   Consultations to date have reinforced many of the issues previously identified and many of the same reasons that people like living in the area.  Additional aspirations have been expressed in the areas of: opportunities for obtaining affordable food; keeping the community safe; opportunities for community activities and development; further arts development opportunities; green space and landscaping opportunities and developing community spaces

6.1.4   The Greening the Rubble project at 108 Stanmore Road will be further developed over the next few months to build on the community garden, play space and stage area already there. The Council Urban Regeneration team are working on a new collaborative project to activate the remainder of the site for community use. This will include the existing assets and incorporate some new “Tiny Shops” for community and commercial use. One of the spaces will be available for the relocation of the Te Ao community café from across the road.  This will provide a larger space, including indoor seating, which will enable the establishment of a presence in the area for more hours during the week and the opportunity to try out and discuss possible functions for a future community hub and/or community centre.

6.1.5   Discussions have begun to provide more recreation and positive engagement activities in the area.  This will help to reactivate the area and provide an opportunity for community members to see what some of the possibilities are for fully implementing the revitalisation plan.

6.1.6   Regenerate Christchurch will continue to perform the interim facilitation role until the working/governance group is formed. Regenerate will then become a member of that group.  The extent of the future involvement of Regenerate Christchurch has not been considered by the Regenerate Board. It is planned for this to happen in February 2018.  

6.1.7   A further grant of $20,800 has been obtained from the Ministry of Social Development to pay for the facilitation, events costs and administration during the formal community consultation phase.

6.2       Temporary Alcohol Ban in Linwood Village

6.2.1   At its 6 November 2017 meeting the Board recommended that the Council instruct staff to urgently investigate the introduction of a temporary alcohol ban in the Linwood Village area including Doris Lusk Reserve to take affect for the 2017/18 summer onwards.

6.2.2   A report concerning the temporary alcohol ban was considered by the Council at its meeting of 20 December 2017.  The Council resolved to institute the ban from the date of the meeting for a period of six months.  The area covered by the ban is Fitzgerald Avenue (east side), Armagh Street, England Street and Hereford Street.

6.2.3   Three organisations presented deputations to the Council regarding the ban: the Collective for the Homeless, Te Whare Roimata and the New Zealand Police. The Collective were supportive of both a temporary and permanent alcohol ban in the area, to ensure public safety.  They also requested the Council to consider other supportive measures including public toilets at Doris Lusk Reserve being open 24 hours, the availability of showers for “streeties” and more positive engagement with streeties.  Te Whare Roimata was primarily concerned that the process of instituting the ban did not allow for the development of more positive community-based solutions to the safety and drinking issues.  The Police were strongly in favour of the ban as it allows for proactive policing in the area and will assist the Police to defuse issues before they are escalated to more serious situations. The Police undertook to enforce the ban on a regular basis.

6.2.4   All residents and businesses in the area have been informed of the ban via a letter box drop to all households and businesses with premises in the area. Posters have also been placed in strategic locations.

6.2.5   Staff will report back to Council in early 2018 on the effectiveness of the ban and future options.

6.3       Linwood Youth Festival Experience (LYFE) –Youth wanting to be involved in planning LYFE have attended an event management workshop and are working with the coordinator and various youth focused organisations to plan and deliver this popular event.

6.4       Zumba in the Park. In partnership with Linwood Community Arts Centre, free Zumba classes will be offered on Fridays from 19 January until 2 March to increase the positive use of Doris Lusk Reserve and support a low income community have access to a fun, healthy activity that also enlivens the neighbourhood. Suggestions for other activities/initiatives will also be discussed with participants during this period.
