1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to advise the Papanui-Innes Community Board on the initial stages of implementation of a resource consent and request their decision on works in a road that are associated with grant of consent to establish a new vehicular access at 121 Briggs Road to serve the Homebase Shopping Centre (Marshland Road).

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated. Resource consent has been granted to establish a new vehicular access at the Homebase Shopping Centre (Marshland Road) to Briggs Road.  The consented access makes changes to the road network advisable. These include – extended parking restrictions, a central solid median island and associated signage prohibiting U-turn and right turn movements from Briggs Road into the new property access.

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 Council's Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.2   Other than the properties of 118, 119, 119A, 122, 123 Briggs Road, that were notified through the resource consent application under the RMA, there has been no community engagement which reflects this assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Papanui-Innes Community Board:

1.         Approves a central solid median island to be constructed on Briggs Road approximately 126 metres to the west of the intersection of Marshland Road/Briggs Road in accordance with Attachment A.

2.         Revokes the existing parking restrictions on the northern side of Briggs Road that extends 94 metres west of the intersection of Marshland Road/Briggs Road.

3.         Approves parking restrictions on the northern side of Briggs Road between the intersection of Marshland Road/Briggs Road to extend 173 metres to the west in accordance with Attachment A.

4.         Approves signage that prohibits right turning vehicle movements from Briggs Road into the access at all times.

5.         Approves signage that prohibits U-turn movements from Briggs Road into the access.

6.         Approves signage that prohibits the use of the access by heavy vehicles.

7.         Approves road markings in accordance with Attachment A.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report is not relevant to the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025).

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

 

·     Option 1 – Approve consented changes to the road network. (preferred option)

·     Option 2 –  Amend the access design

 

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     It enables implementation of the resource consent.

·     Enables any safety issues arising from the design and use of the access to be addressed to the extent that a traffic safety audit has concluded is appropriate.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Loss of on-street parking space for approximately 9 vehicles on the north side of Briggs Road.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       Resource Consent for the access was granted in January 2014. The application was processed on a non-notified basis on the recommendation of a Planning Commissioner who, discarding the effects on people who had given written affected party approval to the application, considered the effects of the access proposal to be less than minor. The key issues considered by the Commissioner were impacts on residential amenity and road safety at the intersection of the proposed access/Briggs Road (Minor Arterial).

5.2       The consent was granted subject to a set of consent conditions. The consent conditions provide that the access cannot be constructed unless there is a safety audit of the access design, and that the consent cannot be implemented unless the approved access design (including works in the road) is constructed. These consent conditions included a requirement to undertake a safety audit of the intersection design and to address any serious concerns identified from the safety audit process through amendments to the proposed access design.

5.3       The safety audit has been completed with no serious concerns identified. The safety audit team identified a moderate risk associated with long delays to vehicles exiting the site due to queuing on Briggs Road and subsequent increase in risk associated with drivers accepting smaller gaps to undertake movements. The Council Safety Engineer agreed with the Safety Audit team, highlighting the key concern in regard to safety for those turning right from the site through queued traffic given that the right turn movement needs to be completed in the ‘live’ westbound lane on Briggs Road.

5.4       As no serious concerns were identified from the safety audit process the proposed access design remains as that set out in Attachment A.

5.5       The decisions required of the Community Board are confined to the works in the road. Whether or not the access should be at this location is irrelevant. Relevant considerations are limited to those regarding the road works themselves – road markings, signage, islands and parking restrictions.


 

6.   Option 1 – The works in the Road identified in section 3 (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Implement changes to the road network that include – extended parking restrictions, a central solid median island and associated signage prohibiting right turn movements from Briggs Road into the new property access at 121 Briggs Road.

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       Through the RMA process, the proposal was considered on a non-notified basis with written approval for the access proposal received as part of the application from 118,119,119A, 122, 123 Briggs Road which were accepted by the planning commissioner as being the only affected properties. The affected parties were made aware of the proposed road works.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.6       This option is considered to be not contrary to Council’s Objectives and policies.

Financial Implications

6.7       Resource consent for the proposed access was granted with accompanying conditions that mitigate the effects of the consent.  Identification of who pays for such mitigations lies beyond the scope of such conditions. The works are not identified as a Council priority and do not feature in current Council spending plans. Council therefore does not anticipate funding the works and as such there are no financial implications associated with the Board’s decision to approve works in the road as is being requested.  

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – Covered under Area Maintenance Contract and the effect will be minimal to overall asset.

6.9       Funding source – Maintenance Budget.

Legal Implications

6.10    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.

6.11    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 Community Boards includes the resolution of parking restrictions, traffic control devices, and traffic islands.

6.12    The installation of any signs and/or road marking associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

6.13    This report has been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit. The merits of there being an access at this point is not a relevant consideration for this Community Board decision. Relevant considerations are limited to the proposed works within the road.

 

Risks and Mitigations  

6.14    The Road Safety Audit has not identified any road works that would further mitigate any risks of accidents occurring.

6.14.1    Residual risk rating: there are no planned remedial works therefore residual risk is not applicable.

6.15    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.16    Implementation timeframe – January 2019 (5-year lapse of consent).

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.17    The advantages of this option include:

·   Enables implementation of resource consent

6.18    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Loss of on-street parking space for approximately 9 vehicles on the north side of Briggs Road.

7.   Option 2 – Alternative works on road

Option Description

7.1       The proposed access and associated works in the road relate to the grant of resource consent by Council. The consent holder as part of the conditions of consent has received the necessary road safety audit approvals. No alternative access arrangement or variation to works in the road is presented to the Board for its consideration.

Housing New Zealand Corporation (HNZC) owns a significant proportion of the housing in the Shirley area, specifically focused around MacFarlane Park. The housing and the Park were constructed in the 1950s/60s as one housing development project. Some of this original housing was cleared post-earthquake due to damage and some is reaching the point where renewal is required.

In 2016 the Council and HNZC agreed to work on a project to consider a comprehensive approach to the renewal of housing that would also consider the role of public open space (e.g. Macfarlane Park) and other activities in the area (e.g. the local shopping centre and community facilities). Early engagement with the community commenced in late 2016 and continued through to 2017.

In mid-2017 the previous Government announced that the HNZC controlled housing in Shirley would form part of the Social Housing Transfer Program (SHTP) for Christchurch. Given the uncertainty around HNZC’s ongoing responsibility for housing in the area, it was prudent to pause the work until after the SHTP process had concluded. During the SHTP bidding period (approximately June 2017 to November 2017) Council staff met with the bidders for the housing stock in Shirley to discuss options for continuing the work and to consider how these organisations may essentially step into the HNZC role in the project.

Following the change of government in late 2017 it became clear that the Social Housing Transfer Programme had been suspended, and it was formally cancelled early in 2018.

There is presently no master plan for Shirley or for MacFarlane Park. The role, composition and functions of the Park will be considered as part of the Shirley project and will be included in any subsequent master plan approach, should this be required.

Council staff will meet with Housing New Zealand Corporation (HNZC) on 20 March 2018 and following this meeting will be able to provide a comprehensive update to the Board.
