8.   Welles Street - Parking Restriction Changes

 

Committee Comment

1.         The Staff Recommendations were accepted without change.

2.         The Subcommittee considered particularly whether provision for mobility parking should have been included among the parking restriction changes, but considered that the Staff Recommendations were appropriate to accept at this time, noting that:

a.         recently surveyed usage of mobility parking across of the central city suggests there is no need at this time for greater provision for mobility parking than staff would recommend; 

b.         the mobility parking in the vicinity can be considered if a community request is received; and

c.         the provision of P120 parking on the street will allow good turnover to increase the chances for anyone to park nearer to where they are visiting in the vicinity.

9.   Armagh Street - Durham Street North to Colombo Street Parking Restriction Changes

 

Committee Comment

The Subcommittee made the following changes to the Staff Recommendations before otherwise accepting them:

a.         The Subcommittee were concerned that the recommended provision for P5 parking was insufficient for the needs of customers of the ice cream caravan and the oversized mobility park was less than optimal, and so the Subcommittee resolved that the proposed mobility park instead be P5 parking;

b.         The Subcommittee requested that staff investigate mobility parking in the vicinity, noting that there could be good opportunities for it on the opposite side of the street given future planning for a further nearby controlled crossing. It was considered that the mobility park could be more optimally sized there, and the extent of nearby mobility parking was also noted suggesting that the need for it at this spot was not urgent.

5.   Context/Background

5.1       On 4 December 2014 the Infrastructure, Environment and Transport Committee (ITE) considered and recommended to Council to approve traffic controls and parking and stopping restrictions on sections of Colombo Street, Lichfield Street and Tuam Street. These sections of road which included all three road frontages to the Interchange, were part of the Transport Chapter of the An Accessible City projects entitled Transport Projects 9, 10 and 11 (TP9, 10 & 11).

5.2       The ITE report was considered and approved by the Council on 11 December 2014.

5.3       This report approved the creation of the part time Coach Stop, operating between 6am-8am on any day, for scheduled longer distance/out of town services. For the remainder of any day, this area was approved as a Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi Stand.

5.4       A schedule public transport route currently operates between Westmorland and the Eastgate shopping centre (Route 145).  As this service does not necessarily cater for peak hour commuters (it does not access the Interchange/CBD), patronage is not high and the operator uses smaller shuttle type vehicles.

5.5       Following a review and consultation on changes to the 145 service, the route is now being changed to be a standard “radial” route, travelling to/from the Interchange and Westmorland. In conjunction with ECan, the operator (Red Bus) will continue using the smaller vehicles. This is due to number of reasons with an important factor being the amenity benefits of smaller vehicles circulating the streets within the Westmorland suburb. Larger/standard bus vehicles will also be used on this revised 145 route at high demand times

5.6       The effect of this change is the non-compatibility of the Interchange to service differing specification vehicles within the internal bus bays. The following information has been provided by ECan staff to explain this and the reasons why a dedicated bus stop is now required on Lichfield street, directly outside the Interchange.

5.7       A slightly lengthened, full time bus stop, will service the early morning long distance services and the 145 bus. This has the effect of a required relocation of the daytime Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi Stand to another site. The nearest possible site is the current night time Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi Stand, located on the opposite side of Lichfield Street, just east of the interchange exit. Currently, the two car parking spaces are not signed, and therefore are being used by all day parkers.

5.8       All Christchurch Taxi companies that could be identified were contacted advising of this change. Two companies responded:

a)    Blue Star, who are objecting to the change based on clients having to cross Lichfield Street and the separation from the Interchange public door.

b)    Corporate Cabs, who object to removal of the daytime stand from immediately outside the Interchange.

Staff Response:  A Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi stand is located on Colombo Street, immediately north of Lichfield Street. This can be accessed via the “Barnes dance” crossing at the intersection. The distance from the interchange doors is approximately 50 metres

5.9     Information on the technical issues with smaller vehicles using the Interchange bays is contained with Attachment B.

6.   Option 1 - Change the existing part time Coach Stop /Small Passenger Service Vehicle Stand to a full time Bus Stop and relocate the Small Passenger Service Vehicle Stand (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Change the existing part time Coach Stop /Small Passenger Service Vehicle Stand to a full time bus stop and relocate the taxi stand to the opposite side of Lichfield Street.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to 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       The only affected group are Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi operators.  Properties directly frontage the two parking change sites are:  a) The Interchange (whose managers are requesting the change), and b) outside 81 Lichfield Street. This site currently has a night time Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi Stand. During the daytime, vehicles are regularly parked all day. Therefore, changing this parking into a Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi Stand does not effectively remove parking opportunities for nearby businesses.

6.5       The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - $500 for the installation, plus $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report.

6.8       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

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

Legal Implications

6.10    Part 1, Clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking and stopping restrictions by resolution.

6.11    The Parking Restrictions Subcommittee has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.

6.12    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with parking and stopping restrictions must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.13    None identified. 

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies - Subcommittee approval.

6.15    Implementation timeframe - Approximately two weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   Provides bus stopping facilities that meets the needs of all Interchange operational requirements.

6.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Removes a Small Passenger Service Vehicle/Taxi Stand from directly outside the Interchange.

7.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Retain existing parking and stopping restrictions.

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

4.   Key Points

4.1       This recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety & Efficiency Service Plan in the Councils Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028)

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Retain existing parking and stopping restriction infrastructure, as exists on 5 September 2018. (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     All existing on street kerbside management will match the legally specified restrictions, allowing for ongoing monitoring and enforcement by the Parking Compliance team

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       This report covers two distinct street blocks of Hereford Street. Each street block has been the subject of previous reports to this committee, to change the kerbside parking management in association with a proposed changed road environment. Both projects have not proceeded as discussed below.

5.2       The parking layout that existed before the reports to this committee has not been changed. A situation has now been created where the legal resolutions of the Committee do not match the on-street situation.

5.3       The Council’s Parking Compliance team is becoming aware of some motorists realising the anomaly and are parking contrary to the signs and markings.  This cannot be enforced.

5.4       On 9 August 2017, the Infrastructure, Environment and Transport (ITE) Committee considered and approved a project for the installation of a zebra pedestrian crossing on Hereford Street, from the Civic Offices to the Westend car park Building. This incorporated a kerb extension on the south side, with recommendations to that committee to change the affected parking. The project was to be a joint venture with Ngai Tahu (owners of the site opposite the Civic offices). Subsequently, Ngai Tahu notified Council that their funding would not be available and the project did not proceed.

5.5       On 11 April 2018, the ITE Committee considered and approved a project for the reconstruction of the roadway at the Hereford Street River Bridge, with the bridge involving most of the street block from Cambridge Terrace to Oxford Terrace. That report stated:

Hereford Street Bridge is an important heritage feature within the new Avon River Precinct.  The aim of the proposed traffic resolutions is to improve the function and aesthetic of the Bridge through widening of the public footpath, provision of a cycle lane, and moving the existing carparks and taxi rank. The works are consistent with adjacent Oxford and Cambridge Terrace works and are designed to accord with the Recovery Plan and the detailed streetscape principles of the Streets and Spaces Design Guide (of 2015).

5.6       On 19 April 2018 this committee considered and approved the kerbside parking and stopping restrictions as part of the Avon River Precinct project on the Hereford Street Bridge.

5.7       This project has been delayed. While the intention is to continue with this project, the timing is being considered in regard to another Hereford Street project (Oxford Terrace to Manchester Street).

5.8       As with the parking opposite the Civic Offices, the kerbside parking on both sides of the Hereford Street Bridge, does not match the legal resolutions of the Committee.  The Council’s Parking Compliance team cannot enforce non-compliance of the existing SPSV /Taxi stand, paid parking or No Stopping on the Bridge.

5.9       The northern kerbside of Hereford Street, between Montreal Street and Cambridge Terrace has not been affected by either project. Reconfirmation of the existing restrictions is recommended by the committee to:

a)    Have all parking and stopping restrictions within the two street blocks within the report approvals.

b)    Ensure the multiple restrictions that were approved at different times, can be easily referenced.

 

 


 

6.   Option 1 -  Retain existing kerbside parking (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Submit revised parking and stopping resolutions to the committee to match the existing on-street parking.

Significance

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

6.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to 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       No consultation has occurred as this report proposes retaining the existing situation.

6.5       The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports this option.

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.

3.         Approves that these resolutions take effect when parking signage and/or road markings that evidence the restrictions is/are in place (or removed in the case of revocations).

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety & Efficiency Service Plan in the Councils Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028)

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Change the existing P60 time limit to P30 for two parking spaces in Balfour Terrace (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 better opportunities for drop off /pick up activities, associated with the new childcare centre

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       On 19 April 2018, this Subcommittee approved a plan for parking management of Balfour Terrace, from its intersection with Stewart Street and extending in an easterly direction to the boundary of the proposed Metro Sports facility.

5.2       This reconstructed portion of Balfour Terrace was managed by Ōtākaro, with the associated layout, traffic controls and parking restrictions, was submitted for approval to the Council’s Infrastructure, Environment and Transport Committee and this Subcommittee.

5.3       Due to the physical constraints in regard to road width, the parking opportunities and turn around areas are very limited.  This resulted in the need for no stopping on both sides and at the road termination.

5.4       More recently, staff of the Traffic Operations team were contacted by the developer of the childcare centre on the northern side of Balfour Terrace, at the eastern road termination. Staff met on site and looked at possible parking opportunities for drop off and pick up of pre-school children. The Childcare centre will have up to 100 children. One standard and one mobility park will be provided off street by the Childcare centre.

5.5       Only two on-street car parking spaces currently exist in the bay provided. In April, these were approved to be P60 parks, although Ōtākaro never installed the signs, and they are generally occupied by commuters at the present time.

5.6       The developer agreed that 30 minute parking (P30) in these spaces was satisfactory, due to parents needing to escort younger children into and out of the Childcare centre. Further parking opportunities were looked at and staff agreed to assess additional parking possibilities outside the Childcare centre.


 

6.   Option 1 - Install P30 Parking, Replacing P60 Parking (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Change the two car parking spaces on the north side of Balfour Terrace from P60 to P30.

6.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to 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       Affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by telephone conversation. There is no objection to this time limit change for the two car parking spaces on Balfour Terrace.

6.5       The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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