1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee to approve a bus stop and additional parking restrictions on Moorhouse Avenue, adjacent to the under-construction New World supermarket, as shown in Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated for the following reasons:

·   It was identified by staff that the new location of the New World supermarket on Moorhouse Avenue will generate a demand for public transport, where there is a gap in access to public transport. 

·   Historically there was a bus stop located in close proximity to the proposed bus stop in this report.  This report presents the opportunity to re-establish the bus stop and provide parking restrictions that better reflect the redevelopment of the area.

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 Parking Restrictions Subcommittee resolve to approve the following parking restrictions (refer to Figure 1 or Attachment A):

1.         Revoke all parking and stopping restrictions on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue commencing at its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 65.5 metres.

2.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue commencing at its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 15 metres.

3.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be restricted to a maximum of 60 minutes, between the hours of 6am and 10pm, Monday to Sunday, commencing at a point 15 metres west of its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 24.5 metres.

4.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all time between the hours of 10pm and 6am, Monday to Sunday, on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue commencing at a point 15 metres west of its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 24.5 metres.

5.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue commencing at a point 39.5 metres west of its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for 4 metres.

6.         Approve that a marked bus stop be installed on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue commencing at a point 43.5 metres west of its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 14 metres.

7.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue commencing at a point 57.5 metres west of its intersection with Durham Street South and extending in a westerly direction for a distance of 8 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:  Bus stop and additional parking restrictions adjacent to New World supermarket, Moorhouse Avenue – preferred (refer to Figure 1 or Attachment A).

·     Option 2:  Do nothing.

4.3       The proposed bus stop and additional parking restrictions as per Option 1 of this report are shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1:  Proposed Bus Stop and Additional Parking Restrictions


 

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

4.4.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The location of the bus stop has been chosen to provide convenient access to the supermarket, and maximise passenger catchment to the surrounding commercial areas.

·     The location of the proposed bus stop provides an even spacing of roughly 330 metres between the closest bus stop before and after it on Moorhouse Avenue. 

·     Historically there was a bus stop located in close proximity to the proposed bus stop.  This report presents the opportunity to re-establish the bus stop and provide parking restrictions that better reflect the redevelopment of the area.

·     The proximity of the bus stop to the signalised intersection of Moorhouse Avenue with Durham Street South allows pedestrians to cross these roads with a signalised pedestrian phase.

·     The proposed bus stop is located between the supermarket driveway and the intersection of Moorhouse Avenue with Durham Street South.  There are no other driveways located within this section of the road.  This means the bus stop is on the departure side of the supermarket driveway, removing the potential for restricted sightlines of drivers exiting the supermarket.

4.4.2   There are no apparent disadvantages to this option.

 


 

5.   Context/Background

Location

5.1       The area of interest of this report is Moorhouse Avenue, west of Durham Street.  As indicated in Figure 2, the area of interest is serviced by one public transport line, the number 140-bus service.

Figure 2:  Location of interest – Moorhouse Avenue, west of Durham Street South

5.2       The number 140-bus service operates between Mt Pleasant and The Hub Hornby via Riccarton. The service operates from around 6am to around 11:30pm, Monday to Friday, and over similar hours during the weekend.  On a weekday, the bus service predominantly runs every 30 minutes. 

5.3       Historically there was a bus stop located in close proximity to the proposed bus stop.  The bus stop appears in aerial imagery as late as March 2013.  Figure 3 indicates the bus stop circa April 2012.

New World supermarket – Moorhouse Avenue

5.4       Foodstuffs (South Island) Properties Ltd (further referred to in this report as Foodstuff Properties) are currently establishing a New World supermarket on land that fronts onto Moorhouse Avenue and Durham Street South.  Supermarkets are key travel demand generators and it is important to provide conveniently located bus stops to ensure those who travel by public transport do not have a long distance to walk with potentially heavy loads.

Bus stop location planning

5.5       Bus stops provide key access connection points to allow personal mobility by means of public transport.  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,

·   Convenient access to key activity locations.  This is an important consideration in the context of this project as passengers will have to walk between the supermarket and the bus stop with potentially heavy loads.  Minimising the walking distance for these passengers is a matter of importance for their comfort and convenience.

·   Operational suitability,

·   Accessibility,

·   Capacity, and

·   Information gathered from site visits and feedback from residents and key stakeholders.

5.6       Due to the likelihood of the bus stop attracting a greater demand of passengers, by way of its proximity to the supermarket, a bus passenger shelter has also been proposed to be installed as part of the bus stop project.  However approval of the bus passenger shelter is not a delegated authority of the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee.  Staff have delayed the approval process of the bus passenger shelter until such time as the decision concerning the location of the bus stop has been confirmed.

5.7       Bus stops are planned as pairs.  The location of the paired bus stop on the south side of Moorhouse Avenue will need to be re-evaluated at a later date to ensure it is close as practically possible to the intersection of Moorhouse Avenue with Durham Street South.  Thereby reducing the distance a pedestrian would have to walk to the New World supermarket on the opposite side of the road.

Pre-consultation

5.8       The proposed bus stop and additional parking restrictions were raised by Council staff with representatives of Foodstuffs Properties during the resource consent stage of the Supermarket development.  The resource consent report prepared by the Council’s Principal Advisor Resource Consents has included matters assessed by the Council’s Traffic Engineer who reviewed the applicant’s supporting Integrated Transport Assessment for the supermarket development.  The inclusion of the bus stop is highlighted in the resource consent report, which links the supermarket to the bus stop on Moorhouse Avenue via the separated pedestrian path through the middle of the car park.  The following is an extract of the Council’s Traffic Engineer’s assessment of the transport related matters, from the traffic effects section of the resource consent report that references the location of the bus stop.

5.8.1   Separated pedestrian and cycle access has been provided at the access points and a pedestrian path is proposed through the centre of the site leading from the proposed bus stop on Moorhouse Avenue to the main entrance of the supermarket.

5.9       In the assessment provided by the Traffic Engineer to the Principal Advisor Resource Consents, it is outlined that the bus stop and other on-street parking changes require sign off by the relevant authority, which is a process that sits outside the resource consenting process. 

Consultation

5.10    Following on from the pre-consultation deliberations of the Land Use Consent stage of the supermarket, the consultation notice and feedback form was provided to the representative of Foodstuffs Properties Ltd.  The consultation occurred from Wednesday 8 November 2017 to Friday 24 November 2017. 

5.11    Foodstuffs Properties Ltd have returned their submission in objection to the proposed location of the bus stop and bus passenger shelter.  For this report, only the submission concerning the proposed bus stop is considered.

5.12    The bus stop consultation process, feedback and outcome is described in Section 6.6 to Section 6.12.

6.   Option 1 – Bus stop and additional parking restrictions adjacent to New World supermarket, Moorhouse Avenue

Option Description

6.1       Staff recommend that the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee approve a bus stop and additional parking restrictions on Moorhouse Avenue, adjacent to the under-construction New World supermarket.  The location bus stop and additional parking restrictions are shown in Figure 1 and Attachment A.

6.2       No stopping parking restrictions between the hour of 10pm and 6am have been in operation along both sides of Moorhouse Avenue between Hagley Avenue and Colombo Street since 2008.  It is a measure that is used to deal with anti-social behaviour.

6.3       The planning of bus stop locations has been based on the bus stop planning process, as indicated in Sections 5.5 to 5.7. 

Significance

6.4       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

6.5       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. 

Community Views and Preferences – First Round of Consultation

6.6       As indicated in Section 5.8, the bus stop and additional parking restrictions were addressed by Council staff at the time of the resource consent application by Foodstuff Properties.  However the approval of on-street parking changes is a process that sits outside the consenting process of the resource consent application.

6.7       Foodstuffs Properties have only been consulted with for this proposal, as they are the sole property owner of the land adjacent to the proposed parking restrictions.  There are no established businesses operative within the adjacent site.  The new supermarket is currently under construction. 

6.8       Following on from the pre-consultation deliberations of the supermarket resource consent, the consultation notice and feedback form was provided to the representative of Foodstuffs Properties.  The consultation occurred from Wednesday 8 November 2017 to Friday 24 November 2017. 

6.9       Foodstuffs Properties have returned their submission in objection the proposed location of the bus stop and bus passenger shelter.  For this report, only the submission concerning the proposed bus stop is considered.  The following is the submission provided by Foodstuffs Properties Ltd:

6.9.1   Please relocate the bus stop to the most western portion/position of the Foodstuff SI Properties site to ensure it is evenly placed.  The remainders of the Foodstuffs site will be used for retailing.  From a visibility, site amenity, practical design and integration with adjoining properties it makes pragmatic sense to locate the bus stop to the most western edge of the Foodstuff site.  This western location will better support the retailing proposed for the remainder of the site.

6.10    The western most position of the Foodstuffs Properties Ltd site is indicated in Figure 4.

Figure 4:  Alternative location for the bus stop as suggested by Foodstuffs Properties Ltd

6.11    Staff have indicated to Foodstuffs Properties Ltd that whilst we understand that further developments to the site owned by Foodstuffs Properties are likely to occur, the planning of public transport differs for the following reasons:

·   Convenient access to key activity locations, such as a supermarket is a key consideration when planning bus stops.  A passenger who walks between the supermarket and the bus stop will potentially have heavy loads to carry.  Minimising the walking distance for these passengers is a matter of importance for their comfort and convenience.  Whereas trips to other retail stores will most likely not result in the same load that will need to be carried by the passenger to the bus stop.

·   Rational spacing of bus stops is another important consideration of bus stop planning.  The location of the bus stop proposed by staff provides an even spacing of roughly 330 metres between the closest bus stops before and after it on Moorhouse Avenue.  Whereas if the proposed bus stop was located by the most western position of the Foodstuffs Properties site the spacing would change to roughly 250 metres to the previous bus stop, and 410 metres to the next bus stop.  Importantly the location of the proposed bus stop is in close proximity to an intersection.  By positioning the bus stop closer to an intersection it allows for a greater passenger catchment area than a bus stop located mid-block.  Providing a bus stop closer to an intersection generally provides safer crossing facilities for a pedestrian than if the bus stop is located mid-block.

·   The location of the bus stop proposed by staff allows the bus stop to be clear of vehicles turning left into the New World supermarket, or any other driveway which might become operational as part of future retail developments.  The proposed bus stop removes the potential conflict between buses and vehicle turning movements. 

·   There are a number of existing driveways located along the Moorhouse Avenue property frontage of the Foodstuffs Properties site.  The kerb height at a driveway is lowered to allow for vehicle movements.  At a bus stop the kerb height should be higher to reduce the step height for passengers boarding or alighting a bus.  The reduced step height makes the bus stop more accessible to passengers who have mobility impairments.  There are no driveways located along the bus stop location proposed by staff. 

6.12    Due to the reasons outlined above, and the pre-consultation deliberations that occurred during the supermarket recourse consent, staff have concluded that proposed bus stop location provides the best outcome for those who travel by public transport.

Consultation feedback – Environment Canterbury

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

6.14    Environment Canterbury has provided feedback to confirm their full support to the location of the bus stop proposed by Council staff.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.16    Staff professional services costs - $3,500, which covers planning, consultation and approval.

6.17    Cost of Implementation - The estimated cost of this proposal is about $5,500.  This cost does not include the cost associated with the installation of a shelter.

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

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

Legal Implications

6.20    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 Parking Restrictions Subcommittee.

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

6.22    General adherence to the recommended provisions associated with the length of a bus stop, as set out in the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009). 

Risks and Mitigations   

6.23    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

6.24    Implementation dependencies - The implementation is dependent on the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee approving the recommendations as described in Section 3. 

6.25    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

6.26    The advantages of this option include:

·   The location of the bus stop has been chosen to provide convenient access to the supermarket, and maximise passenger catchment to the surrounding commercial areas.

·   The location of the proposed bus stop provides an even spacing of roughly 330 metres between the closest bus stop before and after it on Moorhouse Avenue. 

·   Historically there was a bus stop located in close proximity to the proposed bus stop.  This report presents the opportunity to re-establish the bus stop and provide parking restrictions that better reflect the redevelopment of the area.

·   The proximity of the bus stop to the signalised intersection of Moorhouse Avenue with Durham Street South allows pedestrians to cross these roads with a signalised pedestrian phase.

·   The proposed bus stop is located to the east of the supermarket driveway and the intersection of Moorhouse Avenue with Durham Street South.  There are no other driveways located within this section of the road.  This means the bus stop is on the departure side of the supermarket driveway, removing the potential for restricted sightlines of drivers exiting the supermarket.

6.27    There are no apparent disadvantages to this option.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Do nothing – the bus stop or additional parking restrictions are not installed.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option has the potential to be considered Medium, which differs from section 2 of this report due to the potential negative impact it could have on the Council to carry out its roles and functions.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       Refer to Sections 6.4.

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   This option is inconsistent with the Long Term Plan as it has the potential to not contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport.

Financial Implications

7.6       Staff professional services costs - $3,500, which covers planning, consultation and approval process incurred irrespective of the Subcommittee’s 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
