5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

                   

5.1       The Quarrymans Trail Cycleway Opening

The City end of the Quarryman’s Trail cycleway (Moorhouse Avenue to Victors Road) was opened on Thursday 20 September at 9.30am at Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Whānau Tahi School. The route includes several new sets of traffic lights and pedestrian and cyclist crossings at key intersections. The opening included a pōwhiri and speeches by the Chair of the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee, NZ Transport Agency Regional Director and Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board Chairperson, following which children from the host school cycled along the route.

 

5.2       Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River Bank Stabilisation Works

A bank stabilisation programme has been designed to address the reduced capacity of the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River bed and increased the flooding risk, that has a resulted from bank slumping caused by the earthquakes and natural processes. The aim of the programme is to increase the capacity of the river and reduce the impact of flooding.  Stage one of the work, stabilisation of two kilometres of the River banks between Ashgrove Terrace in Cashmere to Palatine and Eastern Terraces in Beckenham, is almost complete.

Stage two of the project entails a further 1500 metres of riverbank being lined with rock and 65 metres with gabion baskets.  Community engagement on Stage two was undertaken in August 2018.  Flyers advising of the consultation, the availability of information and details of drop in session, were delivered to all properties along the Heathcote River on Waimea Terrace (just west of Birdwood Avenue), Eastern Terrace, Riverlaw Terrace and Palatine Terrace.  A drop in session was held at the Beckenham Service Centre. Fourteen submissions were received on the latest proposal.

The bank stabilisation work is part of a wider scheme to reduce flooding along the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote River.  Other measures include four new storage basins in the upper Heathcote, dredging of the river downstream of Hansen Park and offers to purchase homes most at risk of frequent flooding.

At its meeting on 4 September the Board Approved the Stage two Landscape Plan including the planting of 73 new trees (with a mix of eighty percent native and twenty percent exotic species) and approved the removal of nine street trees to allow the Stage two to be fully implemented.

Stage two work is planned to commence in October/November and is expected to be completed by mid-2019.

 

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

  

6.1       2018/19 Neighbourhood Week

At its meeting on 3 July 2018 the Board decided to allocate $3,000.00 from its Discretionary Response Fund for Neighbourhood Week - Let's Get Together This Summer 2018/19. Along with advertising Neighbourhood Week local community groups (including residents' associations and neighbourhood support groups) were sent information inviting them to apply for Neighbourhood Week funding for their summer get-togethers.

By the closing date, 49 applications had been received with one subsequently withdrawn. The applications were assessed against the guidelines for the Neighbourhood Week events and presented to the Board with staff recommendations for consideration at its meeting on 21 September 2018.

Applications fell into two categories, neighbourhood gatherings (36 applications) and wider community events, largely run by residents’ associations and other community organisations (12 applications). Neighbourhood Week Fund Criteria 3 states – “Neighbourhood Week funding is seen as a small contribution towards holding a gathering. Because it is intended to ‘bring neighbours together’, applications from individuals getting together and holding a local gathering will take priority over those held by organisations”. The recommendation was therefore for Neighbourhood gatherings to receive a higher amount than wider community events. 

Of the 48 applications considered the Board decided to contribute to 46 events, 35 neighbourhood gatherings and 11 wider community events. Two applications were turned down: one as it is considered that there are insufficient funds to contribute to more than one event for the same group and one that failed to meet the Neighbourhood Week Fund Criteria.

7.   Progress Report Against the Community Board Plan 

7.1       The Board’s latest workshop to review progress on the Community Board Plan was held on 31 August 2018. The Board looked at progress to date on the priority actions identified at the last Board workshop and considered priorities going forward. 

Work will continue on the identified priorities and staff will provide the Board with regular updates on progress.  The Board will meet presently and consider its contribution to the next Annual Plan in light of the review.

7.2       Age Friendly Spreydon-Cashmere

The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board Plan 2017-19’s focus on building strong communities includes the creation of an “Age-Friendly” Action Plan. The initiative was launched in July 2018 and the Age-friendly Spreydon-Cashmere Steering Group was formed on 21 August to develop and deliver the action plan.

The Steering Group recently met and gave some initial consideration to a vision statement which is to be refined and brought back to the next meeting. In addition the meeting decided to identify initial priorities for action, and form subgroups willing to address these.  The following four starter priorities and collaborative groups were agreed:

·    Social Isolation/Participation/connection

·    Transport

·    Inclusiveness

·    Health and Wellbeing

Before the next committee meeting, each collaborative subgroup is to meet and prepare goal/s and actions for reporting back to the wider committee which plans to meet monthly.

The last 12 weeks have been absolutely packed with life at the youth centre with a paint party, band night, Hip Hop night and regular programmes such as our Pirates and Cruisers holiday programmes and Neon (featuring a fear factor theme for the term).

A leadership training course continues to operate for 24 leaders from Clearview School and a fundraiser at Breens Intermediate to help fund new speakers for their radio project. Activities include a basketball game against staff and youth workers and a programme with local police for our Piki Ake group at Casebrook Intermediate. A new climbing programme started this term partnering with Papanui High and ADSPECS to deliver a climbing club for the area.

beatONE continues to run programmes in-school focused on electronic music production, radio, live sound and audio engineering. The afterschool programme is helping young people develop their electronic music skills and continues to grow. In terms of recording, PYD have had three projects; working with a special needs group, a local hip hop artist and an electronic Punjabi music artist.

PYD have also been part of a collaborative producing the Liberty Project Webinar series in partnership with Neighbourhood Trust. PYD’s involvement has been production oversight, recording Dai Henwood in Auckland and producing cartoon work, graphics and audio content.

Other Partnerships with the Community and Organisations     

5.5       New Horizons Rotary

Local staff met with New Horizons Rotary on Wednesday 5 September to present on the work that the community governance team does out in the Papanui-Innes community with a specific focus on the St Albans/Mairehau area.

5.7       Papanui Emergency Plan

The Papanui Emergency Plan is developing well and is presently in its first draft for the community stakeholders who have now committed to the Emergency Plan. The positive aspect of this plan identified by the Papanui Stakeholder group is that should there be an emergency that did not specifically affect Papanui, the plan would still activate in order to go to the help and assistance of other affected communities.

Once this plan is completed local staff will look at developing a plan for the Shirley community.

5.8       Rutland Reserve

Staff are discussing options around tree planting and walkways for the future in the Rutland Reserve and suggest that the Board request that staff submit a design plan accordingly.

Infrastructure Projects Underway

5.15    Richmond/Shirley Update

Staff are continuing to work on the programme for the area and develop a clear understanding of the requirements for the work that remains to be done.  Both the capital team and the maintenance team have been working closely together to ensure that stretched resources are maximised.

Maintenance work has been carried out in the area including; clearing sumps, sweeping and channel clearing. This has resulted in reduced incidences of flooding in Crystal, Randall, Petrie, Warden, Dudley and Slater Streets in recent rain events.  

The tender for the re-instatement of Randall and Petrie Streets following the LDRP project has been released and is due to close in the next week or 10 days.  Following that the team will assess responses and potential programmes.  There will be an update to the Community Board as soon as possible in the tender evaluation process.

 

Staff are currently working on the development of a regular newsletter to the community and the Board to ensure that they are well informed.

 

The follow up community meeting is set for 2 October 2018 and the Community Board will be involved in the planning for this over the next month.

6.3       The Great Library Seed and Plant Swap – Papanui Library

Was held at the Papanui Library on Friday and Saturday, 7 and 8 September 2018. This proved so popular the tables were practically bare by mid-afternoon. Fortunately library staff had reserved some seeds and plants to ensure that the display looked just as good on Saturday.

 

The Papanui-Innes Community Board supported the Papanui Library in hosting the seed and plant swap and contributed grow-pots and seeds to go with the Harewood Mitre 10 Mega contributions.


 

6.4       St Albans Time Capsule Opening

The Time Capsule recovered when the St Albans Community Resource Centre was demolished post-earthquake was opened on Friday 14 September 2018 in the Papanui Board Room at the Papanui Library and Service Centre.

The capsule was unique being made of wood rather than metal and was opened under the careful supervision of the Council’s Buildings and Heritage Asset Engineer by a representative from the St Albans Heritage Group, the Chair of the Papanui-Innes Community Board and pupils from the St Albans Catholic and St Albans Primary Schools.

The contents were two newspapers, The Press and the Lyttelton Times (both issued Saturday 31 July 1920) and a letter in a bottle which resisted all attempts to extract it and was referred to the Canterbury Museum experts for retrieval.

1.  Papanui-Innes Community Board Consideration

 

Board Comments

The Main North Road Bus Priority report was left to lie on the table at the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board meeting on 24 August 2018 pending a site visit and further information regarding the installation of the proposed bus lane on the north side of Main North Road between the intersection of Main North, Harewood and Papanui Roads and Winston Avenue.

The Papanui-Innes Community Board were concerned at the proposal to remove further car parks in Papanui Village which would have serious impacts on the retailers on the north side of Main North Road between the intersection of Main North, Harewood and Papanui Roads and Winston Avenue.

1.         At the meeting on 14 September 2018 the staff recommendations were separated so that the Community Board could consider and vote on parts of the recommendations separately.

2.         The Community Board first considered and voted on the aspects relating to Bus Stops, over which the Community Board has the delegated authority. The staff recommendations were accepted with no changes.

3.         The Community Board next considered and voted to recommend to Council the aspects relating to the Grassmere Street Intersection Traffic Controls.  Again the staff recommendations were accepted with no changes.

4.         The Community Board then moved the balance of the staff recommendations for recommendation to Council, with the inclusion of an additional recommendation to request that staff install an additional P5 car park on the north side of Winston Avenue at the Main North Road end.

5.         At this time the Deputy Chairperson moved an amendment to approve that the northbound bus lane begin on the north eastern side of Winston Avenue and this amendment was carried. The Community Board then voted on the substantive motion, taking into account the amendment and this was also carried.

Following the meeting, staff have provided a new Attachment C, attached to these Minutes, which shows the changes that are detailed in the substantive motion.

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

4.1.1  Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.3.0 Improve the reliability of passenger transport journey time - 0.85

·     Level of Service: 10.4.4.0 Improve user satisfaction of public transport facilities

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Main North Road Bus Priority with Option H- Full signals at Grassmere Street with the right turn into Grassmere Street provided (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Main North Road Bus Priority with Options A and B (as consulted on)

·     Option 3 – Alternatives assessed for Grassmere Street: Schemes E, G, and I

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1  The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for northbound buses to travel in advance of general traffic at the Grassmere Street intersection.

·     All turns are retained at Grassmere Street and the pinch point for northbound vehicles and cyclists is reduced.

·     The northbound bus lane between Halliwell Avenue and Grassmere Street provides journey time savings of between 2-3 minutes.

·     Safety and efficiency improvements for vehicles and cyclists on Main North Road gained by removing the left turn slip lane from Northlands Mall exit and providing a left turn lane controlled by traffic signals.

·     Average travel time savings (during the evening peak and when there are queues formed in the main traffic lane) northbound between Harewood Road and Langdons Road with the bus lane are 84 seconds with both sections (Harewood to Winston and Winston to Langdons) equally contributing.

·     As well as lowering average bus travel times, bus travel times will also become more consistent with less extreme values, thus improving reliability of the public transport network.

·     Improves safety of on-road cyclists by removing parking and therefore they do not have to ride in the door opening zone.

·     Provides additional crossing opportunities and connectivity for pedestrians along the route.

 

4.3.2  The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Customers visiting shops and businesses on Main North Road between Harewood Road and Langdons Road will need to use off-street parking located behind businesses or alternative on-street parking and walk to the business they are visiting.  This will require a period of adjustment for users.

·     Delay to traffic on Main North Road to allow Grassmere Street traffic to exit under a fully signal controlled intersection.

·     Change to the new kerbline that was installed for the build out for the Major Cycleway on the west side of Main North Road.

·     Customers turning left from Northlands Mall into Main North Road will now have to wait for a green traffic signal that may create some delay to minor road traffic at peak times.

 

5.   Context/Background

Project Description

5.1       Main North Road in this location is classified as a minor arterial route and a key public transport route from the central city to the northern suburbs via Papanui Key Activity Centre.  The Papanui Road/Main North Road Corridor is one the busiest bus corridors in the City and the public transport hub outside Northlands Mall (Main North Road) is the third busiest passenger hub after Central City and Riccarton.

5.2       The Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan (CTSP) adopted in 2012 includes an action to invest in quality public transport, infrastructure and priority measures to support the recovery and future development of the public transport system.  The primary objective is to provide an attractive and efficient public transport system that ensures journey time reliability, good connectivity with other modes, and reduces the number of commuter trips by car.

5.3       Along this section of Main North Road, there are currently seven bus routes, including two core routes (higher frequency).  There can be up to 31 buses per hour travelling in a southbound direction between 8-9am and up to 29 buses per hour travelling northbound between 5-6pm.  On an average weekday in 2017, around 1520 passengers boarded bus services at bus stops on this section of the street daily (between Langdons Road and Sawyers Arms Road).

5.4       As a result of ECan’s Long Term Plan which was consulted on earlier this year, two of these services are due to change later in 2018. The 108 bus is being merged with the 28, so there will be a reduction from seven bus routes using the corridor to six. This will mean that there will be up to 25 buses (currently 31) travelling southbound per hour between 8-9am and up to 26 buses (currently 29) per hour travelling northbound between 5-6pm. Current expectations are that the changes will be implemented in October 2018, but that is subject to change.

5.5       Bus journey times on Main North Road vary from day to day making services unreliable for passengers.  Data shows that variability in journey times for northbound buses is significant and can vary from 4 to 12 minutes in the evening peak based on data provided by ECan. 

5.6       Based on these journey time surveys, there is a clear and significant deficiency in terms of the Level of Service in public transport provision along the Main North Road corridor both at peak times and at times through the day where long queues form south of Sawyers Arms Road and south of Langdons Road. This can make a public transport network less attractive for passengers particularly if they are using Northlands as a transfer point as they may miss connecting services.

5.7      
The Bus Priority Project looks to address this by making journey times more reliable so people can choose to use public transport confidently in the understanding they can make their journey on time, especially in peak times when people need to get to work or get home.

 

5.8       Northbound buses are significantly delayed on this section of road during the evening peak due to congestion caused by queues blocking back from Sawyers Arms Road which can extend to Harewood Road or even further back towards Blighs Road. 

5.9      

As well as slowing bus journey times by forcing buses to queue in general traffic, it becomes difficult for buses to pull out of the bus stops as they have to partially pull out and then rely on drivers (who are often in stationary queues) to give way (typically a whole cycle of the traffic signals is required).  This is far from ideal, as cyclists (approx. 19 per hr) are then placed in a very vulnerable position.  This is because buses are then sitting across the cycle lanes until they have enough room to fully re-join the traffic lanes.

 

 

 

 

5.10    The conflicts between buses and general traffic may also exacerbate the high incidence of rear-end crashes (13 reported instances between 2011 and 2015) on this section of road.  Left turning traffic exiting Northlands Mall are taking very short gaps to re-join the traffic queue resulting in near misses with northbound traffic that are proceeding on a green signal.

Objectives

5.11    The project objectives are as follows:

•    Improve public transport reliability and travel times.

•    Propose bus priority measures (including but not limited to bus lanes) on Main North Road.

•    Papanui is identified in the CTSP as a Walkable Centre and where possible the project should strengthen the character, vibrancy and sense of place at Papanui.

Consultation

5.12    Have Your Say consultation was undertaken which asked for the public’s views on the whole Main North Road Bus Priority scheme and Options A and B for the Grassmere Street intersection. These results are provided under Option 1 (Preferred).

5.13    From the results, Option B was the preferred option for Grassmere Street which introduced full signals, however there were outstanding concerns regarding the removal of the right turn into Grassmere Street. Following the consultation, four further schemes were tested for the intersection to try and address this concern. These are outlined in this report under Section 9.

5.14    One of these (Scheme H) then became the preferred option for the Grassmere Street intersection as it had all the key features of Option B, reduced a significant pinch point for cyclists and included the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road.

5.15    The schemes for Grassmere Street were compared and evaluated with a multi-criteria assessment. They were tested against the project objectives with a secondary objective of safety included, please see table below. Scheme H is proposed as the Preferred Option in this report.

 


5.16    As shown in the table, Scheme H provides the most balanced solution for all road users, including providing additional connectivity for pedestrians. Key features are explored further under section 6.

Other projects on or around this section of Main North Road, Papanui

5.17    In 2013, Council recognised that the existing bus stops and passenger shelters were inadequate and agreed to replace these facilities with new extended shelters and bus stops. The new shelters and bus stops were installed in July 2013.

5.18    To address pedestrian safety when crossing between the bus stops, Council identified a need to improve the crossing facilities at this location.  The signal controlled crossing was constructed in October 2017 and is fully operational.

5.19    Papanui is also identified as a Walkable Centre and Main North Road is a local cycle route.  The Papanui Parallel Major Cycleway, one of a network of 13 major cycleways, crosses Main North Road just north of Grassmere Street.  To support the crossing movement, a signal controlled pedestrian and cycle crossing was installed on the north side of the Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection.  As a result of the crossing, two existing bus stops closed in January 2017, resulting in the transfer of passengers to the main bus stop location.

5.20    The area bound by Cranford Street and Grassmere Street has been approved for a change of use to residential.  The change in use can enhance regeneration as residential development will provide a range of housing options within close proximity of the Papanui and Northlands retail areas, schools and other social infrastructure. The residential area would also be close to transport infrastructure such as public transport routes, as well as the Papanui Parallel Major Cycle Route and the Christchurch Northern Corridor transport infrastructure projects that are currently under construction. There is also a collector road provided by this project linking Grassmere Street to Cranford Street.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.   Option 1 – Main North Road Bus Priority with Option H- Full signals at Grassmere Street with the right turn into Grassmere Street provided (Preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install bus priority measures along Main North Road between Harewood Road and Sawyers Arms Road selecting Scheme H, at Grassmere Street (See Appendix A).  The preferred option has the following features:  

Sawyers Arms Road to Halliwell Avenue

6.2       Retain the current layout on Main North Road on the southern approach to Sawyers Arms Road.

6.3       The Major Cycleway crossing will provide an opportunity for a bus gate that will allow northbound buses to proceed ahead of general traffic. 

6.4       Introduce a northbound bus lane from Halliwell Avenue to Grassmere Street. This bus lane will operate 24 hours a day. The northbound bus lanes will be 3.2 metres wide to safely accommodate cycle movements in the lane (NZTA Cycle Network Planning Guidance) and will operate at all times.  At bus stops, the bus lane increases to 4.2 metres to allow cyclists to pass around stationary buses.

Grassmere Street intersection

6.5      

Of the two options proposed at the Grassmere Street intersection, Option B - full signals was the preferred option by the community. Numerous submissions were received requesting the reinstatement of the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road.

 

6.6       Following investigations as a result of the submissions received, Scheme H was developed to incorporate the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road. Scheme H key features are:

 

·     Full traffic signal control of the intersection including the provision of the right turn into Grassmere Street. This requires a 1m reduction to the buildout installed for the Papanui Parallel MCR which reduces the pinch point for on-road cyclists and allows a large vehicle and on-road cycle to pass the buildout together in defined lanes.

·     Retains the pedestrian crossing on the south side.  Grassmere Street is still within a Walkable Centre and pedestrians have the highest priority according to Council’s Network Management Plan so it would be positive to provide a pedestrian crossing to allow pedestrian permeability and connectivity.  An existing demand of people crossing to the south has been observed in recent counts conducted on Thursday 26th June 2018.

·     Allows for an advanced start for northbound buses, which keeps most people moving for the majority of the time and does not therefore increase congestion to the north that could affect the journey times of southbound buses.

·     Not providing a dedicated right turn phase will mean that right turners will filter through the southbound traffic flow, which will self-regulate the number of people turning right into Grassmere Street (local road) and minimise any potential rat-running.

Halliwell Avenue to Langdons Road

6.7       At the Halliwell Avenue/Main North Road/Northlands Mall intersection is it proposed to control the left turn movement out of the Mall by removing the slip lane and providing a left turn lane within the signal controlled intersection.  This will improve the operation of Main North Road and also improve safety of northbound buses and cyclists using the bus lane.

6.8       Introduce a northbound bus lane from Langdons Road to Northlands Public Transport Hub and north to the intersection with Northlands Mall and Halliwell Avenue.  This bus lane will operate 24 hours a day.

6.9       The existing southbound bus lane will be retained in this section and will continue to operate 24 hours a day.  Buses and bicycles can travel southbound from a new unmarked kerbside lane on the southbound approach to Mary Street.

6.10    New signal - controlled pedestrian crossing on Main North Road at the junction with Langdons Road outside Westpac.  This can be re-introduced following a proposed change to the lane layout on Langdons Road that now allows for a separate left turn lane.

Langdons Road to Harewood Road

6.11    Introduce a northbound bus lane from Harewood Road to Winston Avenue.  This will operate 24 hours a day.  This requires the removal of nine parking spaces on the northwest side of Main North Road.  A short-term parking space (P5) is to be introduced on Winston Avenue.

6.12    Provide a northbound bus lane from Winston Avenue to Langdons Road.  This will operate at all times.  The northbound bus stop is to be relocated to outside 23 Main North Road and be extended to allow for two buses to stop at this point.  This requires the removal of seven parking spaces on the northwest side of Main North Road.

6.13    To improve pedestrian crossing opportunities and visibility it is proposed to modify the Winston Avenue approach to Main North Road.  This will allow for enhancements including seating on the north side.  The intersection will remain as left-in/left-out. A new median island is being installed on Main North Road to self-enforce the banned right turn into and from Winston Avenue. 

6.14    Increase the operational times of the southbound bus lane to include 2pm to 6pm to assist with movements during the evening peak. The southbound bus lanes are 4.2 metres, as this allows for the parking to be provided on this side of the street outside the operating hours of the bus lane. 

6.15    Two bus stops are to be provided for southbound buses outside number 20 Main North Road. This requires the removal of six car parks on the southeast side.

7.   Significance

7.1       The level of significance of this option is Medium consistent with section 2 of this report.

7.2       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are inform and consult.

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       Bus passengers, businesses, pedestrians, cyclists and vehicle drivers either passing through or accessing local streets are affected by this option. Residents in the Grassmere Street area are particularly affected by the option/s for the intersection with Main North Road. The views and preferences of each of these groups are included in the summary below.

7.5       Council Have Your Say consultation was open from 24th October to Friday 17th November 2017. A link to the website was emailed to stakeholders, and approximately 1500 leaflets and submission forms were hand delivered to businesses and residents, posted to absentee landowners and stakeholders, and distributed to libraries and service centres. A separate invitation to a meeting for those in the Grassmere Street area was hand delivered and posted to residents and property owners in Grassmere, Roderick Alleyn Lane, Taunton Green and Grants Road as far as Proctor Street.

7.6       Three well attended public information events were held on:

·     Friday 27th October - Northlands Mall drop in session 2:30pm to 6:30pm

·     Tuesday 7th November - Public Information Event at the Papanui /Innes Board Room 

4:30pm -6:30pm

Interim feedback

7.7       Key issues raised by the 12 residents attending the Grassmere Street meeting and reflected in the submissions were:

·     Neither Option A nor B is acceptable as full access is needed.

·     Not enough access space for adjacent residents or large vehicles e.g. boats and/or trailers.

·     Other congested/narrow intersections and roads such as Mary Street are unsuitable alternatives.

·     The implications of 400 new houses planned in Cranford Basin needs to be considered.

·     Does adding more lights and /or changing the Grassmere Street intersection help buses?

·     Risk of more congestion between Sawyers Arms Road and Grassmere Street.

·     Free left turn requested out of Grassmere Street.

·     Grassmere Street residents’ concerns were not heard during the cycleway consultation.

·     Don’t think the changes to access at Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection are justified by the cycle use.

·     Don’t necessarily need two pedestrian crossing points at Grassmere Street.

7.8       Key additional issues about the proposal raised at the two general drop in sessions and also raised in the submissions were:

·     Parking loss for businesses – general and specific.

7.17    Cyclists and pedestrians: There was significant support for pedestrian safety, and six submitters commented that the parking loss is justified by the benefits to the proposal. Ten indicated unqualified support for cycle provision in the proposal, a further five including suggestions for improvements, and another 12 in support expressing concerns about safety for cyclists in bus lanes.  Generation Zero expressed strong support for the proposal but requested cycle safety education for cyclists.  However, two submitters including Red Bus were concerned that cyclists in the same lane as buses could reduce the efficiency of the bus service, and ten submitters opposed any improvements or priority for cyclists as part of the proposal.

7.18    Generation Zero and CDHB support the bus priority proposal with some suggestions for improvements for pedestrians and cyclists. The CDHB also supports bus shelters, and anything that improves safety for pedestrians and cyclists including a preference for separated cycle lanes. It recommends the removal of all parking except for Mobility Parking and along with Spokes suggests slowing traffic to 30kph through this section of Main North Road to reduce the risk for the range of transport modes sharing ‘such a busy, constricted space’, noting also that parking removal will help improve traffic flow. Spokes requested assurance of adequate cycle lane widths. Age Concern supports the plan, requesting no right turn out of Loftus Street on to Main North Road.

7.19    Members of the project team met a number of times with Kiwi Property representatives as owners of Northlands Shopping Centre to discuss the scheme and specifically changes to their exit onto Main North Road. Staff worked through Kiwi’s initial concerns and our understanding is that Kiwi is now more comfortable with the scheme owing to the updated modelling provided. The project team will continue working with Kiwi throughout the design process to ensure the changes are in keeping with the mall frontage.

 

 

Key concerns

7.20    Twenty-eight submitters commented that they considered the benefits of the proposal to buses would outweigh the negative effects of the changes, and the range of issues and suggestions raised across all submitters included parking loss for businesses, inconvenience for Grassmere Street residents, and increased congestion on local roads owing to the changed road layout and additional traffic lights, including the section between Grassmere Street and Sawyers Arms Road.  Northwood Residents Association did not support the plan, citing concerns about increased congestion and suggesting the bus interchange should be located off Main North Road.

The three main areas of submitter concern were:

7.21    Wider network implications for the efficiency of the proposal and the potential effects on the Grassmere Street intersection

7.21.1   Twenty submitters raised concerns about wider network implications, noting the Cranford Basin Regeneration needed to be taken into account in planning any changes to this section of Main North Road, and in particular the Grassmere Street intersection. Many suggested that changes to Main North Road should be delayed until this is known and the subdivision complete.

7.22    Concern about the associated effects of from Options A and B of turn bans at Grassmere Street/Main North Road including increased traffic volumes using local roads in the area and creating additional traffic on Mary Street.

7.22.1   Fifty-five submitters flagged concerns about the effects on the local road network if access to Grassmere Street is restricted further - in particular if the right turn access is lost. There was strong concern that additional traffic and congestion would overload local roads that would be used as alternative access, including Grassmere Street, Grants Road and Mary Street. It was pointed out that these roads, and in particular Mary Street, are already narrow and congested with parking. There is no access from Proctor Street and Mary Street is already under pressure as a through route. Questions were raised about access for large, heavy or emergency vehicles at the Grassmere Street intersection and via these streets.

7.23    Business and community concerns about proposed parking removal for the full time northbound bus lane and to a lesser extent about the increase of one hour to the operational southbound bus lane times.

7.23.1   Approximately forty submitters raised concerns about parking loss that would result from the implementation of the proposal - especially but not limited to the North-western side - and over half of these opposed any parking loss. There were strong links to the effects this would have on the directly affected businesses, and also the wider business area. Key comments were that provision for off-street parking does not compensate for available on-street parking.

7.24    Papanui High School supports the overall bus priority proposal with concerns that potential delays from the changed road layout and additional sets of traffic lights on Main North Road could result in traffic diverting through Sissons Drive. This could have safety implications for the school, especially at the unsignalised pedestrian crossing on Sissons Drive. The crossing issue is being addressed separately by staff.

7.25    Sixteen submitters indicated concerns about turning and associated safety issues at the Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection, including the amount of space available for buses to merge into the northern traffic lane, the majority commenting specifically on the road space taken up by the existing cycle and pedestrian build-out.

7.26    Five submitters requested removal of parking in Mary Street outside the police station near the Main Road to reduce queue times for traffic exiting to Main North Road, and it was pointed out that it is difficult for vehicles to turn right from Haliwell Avenue into Main North Road.

7.27    Spokes commented that Option B would work better for cyclists, with some further suggestions to improve the layout.

Bus stop and passenger shelter feedback:

7.28    Initial concerns from Mobil about the proposed relocation and extension of the bus stop outside Mobil, Papanui at 23 Main North Road, were resolved following a site visit and clarification of the plans.

7.29    Two business owners on the south side of Papanui Road are concerned about the parking loss for businesses at and adjacent to 20 and 24 Main North Road. One of these submitters requested that the proposed double bus stop on the south-eastern side be moved to the other side of Loftus Street (24 A, 26 and 30 Main North Road), to allow for P15 parking outside businesses from 2- 24 Main North Road.

Other comments and suggestions

7.30    These included a request for a pedestrian island on Main North Road near Age Concern. It was questioned why Council would re-introduce the pedestrian crossing on the north side of the Langdons Road intersection after recent removal, and concern was raised about the effects of the proposal on place-making and amenity in Papanui.

7.31    There were various concerns and suggestions about the effects of proposed restrictions to turning movements and access including the intersection at Sawyers Arms Road, Langdons Road, Winston Avenue, 12 Main North Road, and questions about how to deal with traffic exiting Northlands Shopping Centre to Main North Road. There were also three requests for speed reduction through the area.

7.32    An overview table of project team response to key issues and suggestions is attached (See Appendix B).

The following changes were made as a result of consultation:

7.33    The island on Main North Road to re-enforce the turn bans into Winston Avenue, and improve safety and efficiency on Main North Road, has been amended to retain the right turn in to the car park at the rear of number 12 Main North Road.  It was not possible to re-introduce the right turn out.  This is a low demand movement and drivers can still turn left out, and then use Horner Street and Loftus Street or Mary Street to turn right out on to Main North Road.

7.34    A sign is to be provided at the Northlands Mall Exit/Halliwell Avenue/Main North Road intersection only to remind drivers turning right from the Northlands Mall to give-way to traffic exiting Halliwell Avenue.

7.35    Additional coloured surfacing has been provided between the northbound through traffic lane and the left turn exit slip lane into the Mall to highlight the presence of cyclists and buses on the road at this point where drivers are indicating to turn left into the Mall.

7.36    Modify Option B (full signalisation) at Grassmere Street/Main North Road intersection to allow the right turn into Grassmere Street, now Scheme H.  This requires partial removal of the build out on the west side of Main North Road that was installed as part of the Major Cycleway, and also introduces a shared through and left turn lane for southbound traffic as there is insufficient room for a separate through and left turn lane for southbound traffic.

7.37    Submitters have been sent a letter including a link to the full submissions and the final proposal, along with details of the community board meeting and how to request speaking rights.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.39    Cost of Implementation: The scheme cost estimate for the project is $1,890,900 which exceeds the project budget by $823k. $410k is already provided for in the Core Public Transport Route & Facilities: Orbiter- Northwest (CPMS: 36704). The remaining shortfall as a result of the preferred option to install signals is available from Core PT Route & Facilities: North (Papanui & Belfast) (CPMS: 2274).

7.40    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – The bus lane coloured surfacing and new line marking will be included in the annual maintenance schedule. The new traffic signals hardware will need to be included in the traffic signal annual maintenance schedule.  Following the first year defects period the annual operating and maintenance costs are estimated to be between $1,500 and $3,500 per annum.

7.41    Funding source – The capital costs are included in the LTP capital programme budgets as per 7.39 above.  The operating costs in 7.40 are included in the LTP Roads and Footpaths operating budgets.

Legal Implications                               

7.42    There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

7.43    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit

Risks and Mitigations

7.44    There is a risk that the budget may be exceeded caused by the cost of works exceeding the cost estimate.  This may result in the scheme not being able to be delivered if not properly mitigated. Mitigation measures are to monitor this through detailed design and ensure all opportunities to reduce costs are considered. A tender will not be accepted unless the project falls within the approved budget. The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented will be Medium.

Implementation

7.45    Implementation dependencies - For this work to take place consideration to Northlands Mall’s trading hours will have to be undertaken to ensure the least disruption as possible.

7.46    Implementation timeframe – Construction is proposed to commence mid-2019 and last for approximately 4 months although this will be confirmed at tender.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.47    The advantages of this option include:

·     Allows for northbound buses to travel in advance of general traffic at the Grassmere Street intersection.

·     All turns are retained at Grassmere Street and the pinch point for northbound vehicles and cyclists is reduced.

·     The northbound bus lane between Halliwell Avenue and Grassmere Street provides journey time savings of between 2-3 minutes.

·     Safety and efficiency improvements for vehicles and cyclists on Main North Road gained by removing the left turn slip lane from Northlands Mall exit and providing a left turn lane controlled by traffic signals

·     Average travel time savings (during the evening peak and when there are queues formed in the main traffic lane) northbound between Harewood Road and Langdons Road with the bus lane are 84 seconds with both sections (Harewood to Winston and Winston to Langdons) equally contributing.

·     Improves safety of on-road cyclists by removing parking and therefore they do not have to ride in the door opening zone.

·     As well lowering average bus travel times, bus travel times will also become more consistent with less extreme values, thus improving reliability of the public transport network.

7.48    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Customers visiting shops and businesses on Main North Road between Harewood Road and Langdons Road will need to use off-street parking located behind businesses or alternative on-street parking and walk to the business they are visiting.  This will require a period of adjustment for users.

·     Delay to traffic on Main North Road to allow Grassmere Street traffic to exit under a fully signal controlled intersection.

·     Change to the new kerbline that was installed for the build out for the Major Cycleway on the west side of Main North Road.

·     Customers turning left from Northlands Mall into Main North Road will now have to wait for a green traffic signal that may create some delay to minor road traffic at peak times.

8.   Option 2 - Main North Road Bus Priority with Options A & B at Grassmere Street (as consulted on).

Option Description

8.1       These options were the same as Option 1 except for the Grassmere Street intersection where two options Option A: left in, left out and Option B: full traffic signals were proposed for the community to comment on.

8.2       In both options A and B the right turn into Grassmere Street is restricted.


Option A

 

8.3       Key features of Option A were:

·     Bus journey times in either direction were unaffected.

·     Vehicle journey times on Main North Road in either direction were unaffected

·     Drivers wanting to turn right out of Grassmere Street would be unable to do so and will need to use Mary Street instead.

·     Drivers wanting to turn right into Grassmere Street would be unable to do so and would need to use Mary Street instead.

·     No changes to parking with this option.

·     Lower cost option.

 

Option B


8.4       Key features of Option B were:

·     Traffic lights would allow for drivers to turn right out of Grassmere Street. This would hold the general traffic and buses would share the general traffic lane.

·     Left turn lane into Grassmere Street and to allow for this the south side car parking would be reduced from seven to two spaces.

·     Grassmere Street traffic could turn right on a short green signal

·     Drivers wanting to turn right into Grassmere Street would be unable to do so and would need to use Mary Street instead.

·     Higher cost option.

Significance

8.5       The level of significance of these options are consistent with section 2 of this report.

Impact on Mana Whenua

8.6       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.

8.7       This is consistent with Option 1.

Community Views and Preferences

8.8       These are consistent with the views and preferences shown above in 7.4.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

8.10    Cost of Implementation – Option A was estimated to cost $1,359,900 and Option B estimated to cost $1,737,100 to construct. In terms of available budget these options are consistent with section 7.39 above.

8.11    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – as per 7.40

8.12    Funding source – as per 7.41

Legal Implications

8.13    There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

8.14    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit

Risks and Mitigations

8.15    The risks and mitigations are consistent with 7.44 above.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

8.16    Both Options A and B have the same wider scheme advantages and disadvantages as Option 1. The advantages and disadvantages of the two options for the Grassmere Street intersection are listed below.

8.17    The advantages of Option A are:

·     Option A has the best journey time benefits for buses

·     Buses are able to jump ahead of general traffic.

8.18    The disadvantages of Option A are:

·     Turning movements are restricted at Grassmere Street- residents are unable to turn right into Grassmere Street from Main North Road and unable to turn right out of Grassmere Street onto Main North Road.

8.19    The advantages of Option B are:

·     Residents of Grassmere Street will be able to turn right out of Grassmere Street and head north.

·     Buses are able to jump ahead of general traffic.

·     A pedestrian crossing is provided on the south side of Grassmere Street providing better connectivity and an additional crossing point for pedestrians.

8.20    The disadvantages of Option B are:

·    Residents are unable to turn right into Grassmere Street from Main North Road.

 

9.   Option 3 – Alternatives assessed for Grassmere Street: Schemes E, G, and I 

Option Description

9.1       Following consultation and to address the concerns regarding provision of the right turn into Grassmere Street from Main North Road the project team developed and assessed four further schemes for the Grassmere Street intersection.

9.2       A Multi-criteria Analysis was undertaken by the project team, refer to 5.15 above for the table comparing the schemes.  

9.3       Due to the constrained space at the Grassmere Street intersection, adjustments to the buildout for the major cycleway had to be made to enable the space within the carriageway to provide the right turn.

 

Scheme E

9.4      

Scheme E removes the build out on the west side of the street to allow for the right turn from Main North Road into Grassmere Street to be re-introduced.

 

·     Scheme E provides the safest solution for on road users by removing the pinch point for vehicles and cyclists travelling northbound that is created by allowing the right turn into Grassmere Street. 

·     It would also benefit northbound buses as it allows for buses to travel through the intersection on a full green in their own lane into the unmarked kerbside lane on the approach to Sawyers Arms Road intersection.

·     The dis-benefit of Scheme E is that it requires the removal of the build out that was constructed as part of the Papanui Parallel MCR to provide waiting/stacking area for cyclists clear of pedestrians. The remaining width of path between the kerb and boundary would be 3.7m. This would have an impact on safety behind the kerb with potential conflict between pedestrians and cyclists, and would impact the level of service and potential use of the cycle crossing.

Scheme G

9.5      
Scheme G seeks to reintroduce the right turn movement from Main North Road into Grassmere Street within the existing geometry.  A minor tweak to a kerb line was investigates to see if the pinch point for northbound vehicles and bicycles could be could be removed.

 

 

·     Scheme G was discounted due to safety issues as the pinch point between on road cyclists and northbound traffic still exists. The pinch point is made worse by the right turn bay in the intersection. This was refined to become Option I.

Scheme I

9.6         Scheme I also looks to re-introduce the right turn from Main North Road into Grassmere Street without changing the geometry of the intersection and managing traffic through road marking and signal phasing.

·   

Scheme I removes the right turn stacking area within the intersection, and removal of the pedestrian crossing on the south side of the intersection whilst leaving the build out as currently constructed.

·    This would allow the right turn into Grassmere Street to run in conjunction with the cycle crossing.  Continuity lines would be used to guide northbound vehicles and buses into their lane moving through the intersection.

·    The dis-benefits of this option are that it relies on people following the continuity lines to avoid conflicts, and it removes the pedestrian crossing where there is likely to remain a desire to cross despite the facility on the opposite side of the intersection.

Significance

9.6       The level of significance of these options are consistent with section 2 of this report.

9.7       No further engagement was required as these options were not pursued.

Impact on Mana Whenua

9.8       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

9.9       These views are consistent with the above community views and preferences above in section 7.

9.10    There would be no further consultation required for any of these options as the changes are not significant.    

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

9.12    Cost of Implementation – These options were costed for comparison but cost was not a factor due to safety being the more important concern.

Legal Implications

9.13    There are no legal implications for these options as they were not progressed.

Risks and Mitigations

9.14    The risks and mitigations are consistent with 7.44 above. The risks of each option are detailed under the disadvantages of each option.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

9.15    These are shown above under each option and in the Multi-Criteria Analysis (see 8.6).

4.   Part A Recommendations to Council

The following reports presenting Part A recommendations from the Board are included in this agenda for Council consideration:

4.1       Burwood Tennis Club - Request for New Lease and Surrender of Current Lease

4.2       Public Consultation – Draft QEII Park Master Plan

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area                           

5.1       Draft QEII Park Master Plan Consultation

On 4 October 2018, the Council will be asked to approve the release of the Draft QEII Park Master Plan for public consultations from 12 October 2018 until 12 December 2018.

The Draft Plan includes a new playground, basketball half court and disc golf course as part of a multi-stage makeover of the Park.  The 10-year upgrade being proposed would include new public toilets and changing rooms, an upgraded community centre and a new playground with slides, swings, climbing structure, and sandpit with digger and buried “fossils”.

 

 

5.2       Fireworks  Spectacular Event 2018

The Board received a briefing from the Council’s Events Production team on 17 September 2018 about the Council’s plan for the upcoming Fireworks Spectacular 2018.

The Treetech Fireworks Spectacular this year will be held on Friday 2 November at New Brighton Pier rather than the traditional Guy Fawkes Night on 5 November. “Anthems of Rock” will set the scene for an explosion of colour across the night sky from 9pm.

Plans are under way to ease traffic pressures by prioritising bus access and reviewing options for a “park and ride” service.  Several roads will be closed from 6pm to allow for the thousands of people expected to crowd into the foreshore area. Parking restrictions will also be in force, with signage installed the day prior to the event.

5.3       Thomson Park carpark enhancement and landscape plan project

Public consultation for this project was open during August, staff are analysing the feedback and a report including the public feedback is expected to go to the Coastal-Burwood Community Board in mid-October.  The purpose of this project is to improve the functionality, flow and access of this area of Thomson Park for all park users.

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

Donnell Park

6.1       On 6 August the Board requested advice on whether the pond swales located at the northern end of Donnell Park (24 and 26 Kingsbridge Drive) are functioning/providing a land drainage function, and whether they are still required.  The reason for the request for this information is that the Burwood East Residents’ Association has indicated it would like to consult with the community about what the community would like to see happen in this area (if anything can). Therefore this information will help to inform the consultation.

Advice from staff is that the swales provide for storm water treatment and retention ponds for the Travis Road Subdivision (circa 2007).  While most of the catchment area is red-zoned, they will still be providing a mitigation function for the roading and pockets of Residential Suburban residential land in that area.

Bottle Lake Forest Gates

6.2       At the Board meeting on 4 September 2018, staff undertook to follow up that the conditions of the contract for the gate closing regime for Bottle Lake Forest are being followed by the Council’s security contractor. It has been confirmed that the contractor is providing the required service.

There have not been any recent complaints related to closing times or about resulting activity. Staff are investigating areas of the overflow carpark that may not need to remain open at all times and potentially putting in some post and cable fencing so that there is more control over the use of this area.

Rockabilly Show & Shine

6.3       This event is to be held in New Brighton 10 November 2018. The organiser and representative from the New Brighton Business and Landowners Association presented to the Community Board regarding the 2018 Rockabilly Show & Shine event, specifically regarding support for the Friday night Cruise and music event held in New Brighton Mall.  Staff suggested the organisers consider applying to the Council’s Enliven Spaces Fund as the event meet the criteria.  The Friday night event has been granted $2,900 towards the traffic management and entertainment costs.

7.   Progress Report Against the Community Board Plan

7.1       The Board approved the Coastal-Burwood Community Board Plan for 2017-19 on 16 October 2017. This Plan, can be found at the following link: https://www.ccc.govt.nz/assets/Documents/The-Council/Community-Boards/Coastal-Burwood-Community-Board-Plan-2017-19.pdf

7.2       The Board’s ongoing decisions are being included as measures against the Outcomes and Priorities contained in the 2017 – 2019 Community Board Plan.

8.   Community Board Matters of Interest  

8.1       Palmers Road Renewal Project - Update

On 1 October the Board will be receiving a report on Palmers Road (Bowhill – New Brighton Road) renewal. This report originally came to the Board on 4 December 2017 but laid on the table to enable staff to address the Board’s concerns at the road being narrowed from 14 metres in width to nine metres. Staff had been requested to investigate a street width that allowed two vehicles to pass comfortably if there were parked vehicles on either side of the street. The Board also requested staff to look at various options for traffic calming measures with a view to maximising resident parking.

8.2       Briefings 

The Board received briefings on:

·    SCAPE Public Art on the New Brighton artwork competition

·    Transport plan for QEII Park and surrounds

·    The Biketober initiative

·    Citypcare’s Community Guardian’s initiative

·    Fireworks Spectacular event 2018

8.3       Southshore South New Brighton Regeneration Strategy

The Coastal Futures Hub at 82 Estuary Road has been open for 12 weeks and has seen a steady stream of people through the doors, looking for more information about the Southshore South New Brighton regeneration strategy process. 

Flyers about the Regeneration Strategy process have been delivered to residents in Southshore and South New Brighton. An overview of the process over the coming months is provided below:

•    The Regeneration Strategy process is divided up into five phases. The first phase (current phase) is ‘introducing the regeneration strategy and what it means’.

•    The second phase is ‘what we know’. 

•    The next phase is collectively coming up with ‘options’ and ideas for responding to the changes in our environment.

•    Phase four is about ‘evaluating those options’ and collectively narrowing down the list to the best options.

•    And phase five is ‘writing the strategy’.

8.4       New Brighton Artwork Competition

On 6 September 2018 date the Board was briefed by SCAPE Public Art on the New Brighton artwork competition.  The competition, titled Re:ACTIVATE 2018: New Brighton, will see two new, community-driven public artworks enliven the foreshore of New Brighton, one on the basketball court surface and the other on the wall of the pier ramp.  The project, which is led by Scape Public Art and Development Christchurch, and supported by the Community Board, is Christchurch’s “freshest” art competition, asking participants to design a basketball court or huge mural wall by the pier in New Brighton, visible on Google Earth. 

The artists - Josh O'Rourke and Nathan Ingram - were chosen by a selection panel made up of local community members, key organisations and art experts. Josh and Nathan are both local New Brighton artists.

It is hoped the artwork will be completed by the end of the year, adding to the other exciting New Brighton Regeneration projects and initiatives.

5.   Context/Background

History

5.1       Burwood Park Tennis Club Incorporated (the “Club”) was established in 1934 at Burwood Park and are the oldest tenant on the park.

5.2       The Club have just under 400 members currently. After the earthquakes they lost a few members but in the last 3 years the numbers are starting to climb again. Of the 400 members approximately 150 of them are juniors.

5.3       In 2016 the Club was award Club of the Year in Canterbury, the award was for a combination of attributes including, social, junior, senior competition efforts and club facilities.

5.4       The Club used to have a volley wall but it was damaged in the earthquakes.  They would like to rebuild the wall but in a different position which will work better for the Club.

5.5         The new position may be accessed by the public when not in use by the Club.

Current Lease

5.6       The current lease with Council dated 27 June 1994 commenced on 1 July 1993 and has a final expiry of 30 June 2026, with a total area of 4589 square metres.

5.7       The area to be surrendered is shown as A, B and D on Attachment A.

Request for New Lease

5.8       The Club approached Council seeking permission to build a new volley wall outside of their current leased area that can also be accessed and used by the public (Area C on Attachment A) .

5.9       After discussions with the Club the best way forward was for the Club to surrender their current lease and request a new lease to encompass the volley wall.  A variation would mean that the Club would need to seek a new lease in 2026.

5.10    The total area to be leased to the Club is approximately 4749 square metres as shown in Attachment A to this report (all of Areas A, B, C and D).

Delegations

5.11    The decision in this report and the respective delegations to make those decisions are as follows:

5.11.1 The lease surrender – The Coastal-Burwood Community Board does not have the delegated authority to accept the surrender the lease. This decision therefore needs to be made by the full Council with a recommendation from the Community Board.

5.11.2 The Council has delegated to Community Boards the authority to grant new leases on reserves pursuant to section 54 of the Reserves Act 1977. The proposed lease will be granted under section 54(1)(b)(c) of that Act.

Current Parks Management Plan

5.12    The current Recreation Three Zone Reserves Management Plan approved by the Christchurch City Council in February 1987, provides for the activities:

·   Section 13 (d) 1. Leases and Licences – The whole or part of a reserve for outdoor recreation where the development and maintenance costs for the area are met by the organisation.

Public Advertising

5.13    There is a requirement in the Park Management Plan (the “Plan”) to publicly advertise the granting of a new lease in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977 as the Plan requires that all new lease and licence applications shall be advertised and all objections and submissions are given full consideration by the approved management plan for the reserve.

5.14    The Council has publicly advertised the intention to grant a lease to Burwood Park Tennis Club and the author will update the Community Board after submissions close on 27th August 2018 on feedback received at the time this report is presented.

Minister of Conservation Consent

5.15    The prior consent of the Minister of Conservation shall not be required before the administering body grants a lease or licence under subsection 54(1), where:

a)    The administering body of a recreation reserve is a territorial authority or a regional council; and

b)    The reserve is vested in that territorial authority or regional council; and

c)    A management plan for that reserve has been approved in accordance with section 41; and

d)    The lease or licence is in conformity with and contemplated by that management plan.

6.   Option 1 - Approve a surrender of the current lease for Burwood Park Tennis Club Incorporated and to grant a new lease to include extra land to build a volley wall.

Option Description

6.1       Recommend to Council approve the surrender of the current lease to Burwood Park Tennis Club Incorporated and, if Council accepts the surrender, approve a new lease with additional area to build a volley wall.

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 not required.

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       Members of Burwood Park Tennis Club and members of the public are specifically affected by this option due to the need to provide full tennis facilities from which to participate in their recreational activities.  Their views support this request.

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 – There are no costs to the Council other than staff time which is budgeted for.

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – not applicable

6.9       Funding source – not applicable.  An annual rental of $1161.06 plus GST will be charged in accordance with Council’s charging policy for sports club ground leases.

Legal Implications

6.10    There is a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

6.11    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

6.12    The legal consideration is the Reserves Act 1977.  The preparation of the Deed of Surrender and Deed of Lease is a routine matter on which the legal situation is well known and settled. 

Risks and Mitigations      

6.13    There is a risk that Club ceases to operate caused by lack of members.  This may result in the Club walking away from the improvements thereby causing Council to have to remove the Clubrooms and remediate the building and land. This will result in extra costs to the Council.

6.13.1 Treatment: The leases have provisions to cover this by stating that Clubs must remove all improvements and make good the land.

6.13.2 Residual risk rating: the rating of the risk is low.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies - Approval by Council to surrender the current lease and the Community Board approve a new lease.

6.15    Implementation timeframe – Completion following Council resolution – one month.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   The Club has certainty prior to undertaking the costs of building a volley wall.

·   Fit for purpose facilities for the Club to continue to provide their services and grow the sport of tennis.

·   The lease will be updated with current terms and conditions.

6.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Having an area of recreation reserve occupied exclusively by a local sports club.

7.   Option 2 – Not approve and leave as status quo

Option Description

7.1       Not allow the Club to surrender their lease and grant a new one. The Club would have to wait eight (8) years before their expiry of their lease and would need to approach Council at that time for a new lease with extra land to build the volley wall.

Significance

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

7.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are not required.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4       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

7.5       The Club and their members are specifically affected by this option due to the need for a volley wall for practise. The Club haven’t had a volley wall since the earthquakes and would not support this option which meant they would have to wait for their lease expiry before applying for an increased lease area and new lease.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.6       This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

7.6.1   Inconsistency – does not support Council’s Long Term Plan (2018 – 2028)

7.6.2   Reason for inconsistency – the LTP provides a level of service to deliver overall customer satisfaction with range and quality of recreation activities on parks.

7.6.3   Amendment necessary – changes to the LTP that would not support overall customer satisfaction with recreational activities on parks.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation – no cost to Council

7.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – not applicable

7.9       Funding source – not applicable

Legal Implications

7.10    There is no legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

7.11    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

Risks and Mitigations       

7.12    By not approving the surrender and new lease there would be a risk to the Community Board and Council from not achieving levels of service set out by the Council.

7.13    Risk reputational/image caused by Community Board and Council not approving a surrender and new lease.  This may result in minor negative short term coverage to the Community Board and Council.

7.13.1 Treatment: The Community Board and Council would be required to tolerate the risk and impact to the Club in not approving the surrender and new lease.

7.13.2 Residual risk rating: the rating of the risk is medium.

Implementation

7.14    Implementation dependencies  - Council resolution

7.15    Implementation timeframe – not applicable as status quo.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   There are no discernible advantages to this option.

7.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The Club cannot go ahead with building a volley wall thereby disadvantaging their members until a new lease can be put in place in 2026.

5.   Context/Background

Background - QEII Park

5.1       Over the years QEII Park has had a rich and diverse history. The park has seen a variety of activities occur on the site, connecting people on a local, national and international level. Throughout its evolution, QEII Park has remained a significant part of the community.

5.2       QEII Park, was purchased by Christchurch City Council in 1963 and named Queen Elizabeth II Park, following the royal visit later that year.

5.3       In 1974, QEII Park became the main venue for the 10th British Commonwealth Games - the first of many big events to be hosted by the city at QEII Park. When facilities opened prior to the 1974 Commonwealth Games, QEII Park became a world-class sporting venue and the first in the world to bring athletic and aquatic facilities into a single complex. 

5.4       In 2010 and 2011 the park and its facilities were damaged beyond repair in the Canterbury earthquakes. Major facilities at QEII Park have since been demolished and rebuilt in other locations throughout Christchurch, shifting QEII Park from being a metropolitan facility to a park focused on local and regional needs.

5.5       In 2016 Christchurch City Council resolved to sell a portion of QEII Park (approximately 11.5 hectares) to the Ministry of Education for the development of the new Avonside Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High School. Reducing QEII Park to 36.63 hectares in size.

5.6       Community interest in QEII Park remains high and a master plan is key to providing a clear ten year outlook, to guide the future development of the park.

 

Background - Master Plan Process and Public Consultation

5.7       The development of the master plan has followed several decisions that have been of high interest to the local community. As a result, the desire for a master plan has been expressed by the community, as a mechanism for rebuilding transparency and trust around future projects. With this goal in mind, the engagement to date has also focussed on an open discussion to develop a draft plan to enable a ‘no surprises’ approach to community consultation.

5.8       The following engagement activities have contributed to the preparation of the Draft QEII Park Master Plan:

·   Early workshops and site walk through the park with the Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board.

·   Letter distributed to local residents inviting them to the community open day.

·   Community open day - held on 25 March 2018 and attended by approximately 400 people and 383 items of feedback provided.

·   Online feedback - collected between 25 March and 9 April 2018 and 36 responses collected.

·   Summary of feedback from the community open day presented back to the community through the stakeholder list and online.

·   Workshop with the Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board to review community feedback and refine values/vision.

·   Workshop with the Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board to review spatial plan.

·   Meetings with Shirley Boys’ and Avonside Girls’ High school staff to share information about the draft master plan and school builds, while looking at opportunities across the two sites.

·   Meeting with New Brighton Youth Alive group to explore the vision for the park.

·   Workshop with the Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board to review draft concept plan.

·   Meeting with Rawhiti Golf Course to explore options for hosting par 3 golf.

·   Meeting with MKT – to discuss Rūnanga involvement.

The Board’s consideration and recommendation of the Harewood/Gardiners/Breens Intersection Options Investigation Report and the Harewood Road Corridor Study Findings and Recommendations report will be considered by the Council at its meeting on 4 October 2018.

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

5.1       Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre Upgrading Project

The spa and sauna are complete and have been open to the public since April. Following feedback, minor alterations were made to the height of the seats to the sauna for better user comfort (at no cost to Council) and the lighting has been dimmed to improve ambience.

Work has continued on the indoor hydroslide with the tower and slide being erected. The slide opened on 15 September 2018.

The outdoor area commenced at the end of summer. The poor weather has hampered the project to some extent, however works are progressing and the area is on programme to open mid-November.

Once the outdoor area is complete and open to the public work will start on the alterations to the reception area and change rooms. Access will be maintained through the main reception area with half of the lobby hoarded off and a temporary reception established closer to the front doors. Temporary change rooms will be located in the car park adjacent to the fitness centre with access via a temporary corridor through the group fit room.

Maintaining operations throughout the course of the works has proved challenging. Constant consideration is to minimise the impact on customers as much as possible, and works to parts of the circulation areas will be carried out at night to reduce inconvenience to patrons. We have been extremely grateful for their patience and understanding during this process.

With this in mind, the decision has been taken to complete the final stage of the project to the pool halls once the Metro facility is open. As QEII has shown, there is a huge demand for pool space in Christchurch and staff are reluctant to close the facility until there is suitable viable capacity in the network.

 

 

Spa                                                                                            Sauna

 

 

Pipework                                                                                      Indoor Hydroslide Tower

 

 

5.1       Gardiners Road – Proposed New Bus Stops

The combination of the 108 bus service and the 28 bus service has been outlined in Environment Canterbury’s Long Term Plan 2018-28.  The amended service will operate along Gardiners Road, between Sawyers Arms Road and Harewood Road, which currently has no bus service.

Due to the reintroduction of a bus service along this section of Gardiners Road, there is a need for new bus stops.  In total four bus stops are proposed, two of which to be located in the same place where previous bus stops were operational.

Consultation with the community will begin soon.

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

6.1       Breeze Walking Festival

The Breeze Walking Festival opened on Saturday, 29 September and will run until Sunday, 14 October.  

The local Mona Vale to Riccarton Bush walk takes in the splendour of Mona Vale gardens and the natural beauty of Riccarton Bush.  It is an easy, flat terrain walk suitable for buggies and wheelchairs and will take approximately 60 minutes to complete.

The walk is scheduled for Thursday, 4 October 2018 with a postponement date of Thursday, 11 October 2018.

 Booklets providing information on all walks in this year’s Breeze Walking Festival, are available from Libraries, Service Centres, or Recreation and Sport Centre and also online.

Harewood/Gardiners/Breens Intersection Options Investigation Report

Reference:

18/882420

Presenter(s):

Brendan Bisley, Project Manager, Transport Unit

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is provide advice on potential intersection options to improve safety while maintaining network efficiency at the Harewood/Gardiners/Breen’s intersection  for the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board.

1.2       The report contains details on the advantages and disadvantages of each option along with the costs of each.

1.3       Attached as an appendix, is an assessment report on the Harewood/Gardiners/Breen’s Intersection. The information in that report forms the basis of the data used for the proposed intersection changes at Harewood/Gardiners/Breen’s.

Origin of Report

1.4       This report is being provided to fulfil the Council resolution CLTP/2018/00017 at the Long Term Plan (LTP) meeting of the 22 June 2018. This resolution was:

Council requests staff to report back to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board by 30 September with options (including traffic lights as one of the options), within LTP budgets, for improving safety at the intersection of Breen’s Road, Gardiners Road and Harewood Road. If the best solution cannot be achieved within LTP budgets, then a further report needs to come to Council by the end of October 2018.

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 the costs associated with the proposed solutions, the fact that any proposed solution will require public consultation and the limited geographical area affected by the project.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board:

1.         Receive the information contained in the report and its appendices.

2.         Recommend that Options 1 and 2 are taken to the community for consultation as both fit within the available budget, address the current accidents and maintain the network efficiency along Harewood Road.

3.         Note that if Option 3 or 3a is proposed for consultation that the report is referred to Council, as per the Council’s Long Term Plan resolution.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report compliments the detailed investigations into the Harewood Road corridor (presented as a separate report) and the detailed intersection investigation (Appendices B-E). These contain the technical information that has led to the proposals summarised below. Staff presented the information in a briefing on the Community Board on 7 September 2018.

4.2       Five options have been developed for the intersection. These are a ‘do minimum’ option, two left in / left out options and two traffic signal options.

4.3       The current intersection layout is perceived by users as being unsafe. It is currently ranked No 81 when ranked against all intersections in Christchurch, and is No 62 when ranked against Christchurch City controlled intersections.  Hence it is well outside the top 20 intersections included in the current LTP for intervention.

4.4       All of the reported accidents over the last 10 years have been non-injury or minor injury accidents. In relation to nearby intersections on the corridor, the Harewood Road / Greer’s Road intersection is ranked 21st and has had a serious injury accident.

4.5       The crashes at the intersection increased in 2013 and 2014 when traffic was diverting from the major upgrade works on Johns Road, but there were no recorded crashes in 2015 and 2016 after those works were opened and only two non-injury crashes in 2017. 

4.6       The intersection has issues caused by the current road geometry, with traffic needing to cross the equivalent of six lane widths to get from Breen’s Road to Gardiners Road.  This leads to poor gap selection and long delays waiting for a suitable gap. There is also an issue with sight distance with vehicles travelling straight across the intersection blocking the view of vehicles wishing to turn left, leading to crashes as they pull out assuming there is no oncoming traffic.

4.7       Pedestrians are currently provided with a poor level of service and need to walk approximately 60 metres from the intersection to cross two lanes of traffic unprotected. Vehicle speeds on Harewood Road are high due to excess capacity associated with the two lanes.  This higher speed increases the risk of serious injury or death if a pedestrian was struck.

4.8       Harewood Road is expected to have a reduction in traffic volumes over time due to increasing use of Sawyers Arms Road and other roading upgrades planned in the LTP and works associated with the completion of the RONS programme.

4.9       Harewood Road is the preferred route for the Wheels to Wings Major Cycle Route (MCR). Any facility built needs to be able to accommodate the cycleway to avoid removing new infrastructure. Options 2 and 3 are future proofed for the MCR if this was to proceed.

4.10    There is currently $300,000 ring fenced within the minor safety programme for works at this intersection. Only the ‘do minimum’ and one of the left in/left out options can be constructed within that budget.  Option 2 addresses the geometry issues associated with the intersection and will resolve the current crashes occurring with the intersection. Option 1 reduces the risk and addresses the crash causes, but doesn’t resolve it fully.

4.11    Modelling shows that the wider network had minimal impacts from traffic diverting off Gardiners Road if Option 2 is built.

4.12    Modelling shows that signalising the intersection will attract more traffic along Gardiners and Breen Roads, and intersection safety treatments (potentially traffic signals) would likely be required at Wairakei Road / Breen’s Road intersection to address the very poor road geometry at that intersection.

4.13    Signals will also increase the traffic volumes outside the school and preschool on Breen’s Road, with a modelled 30 percent increase in traffic in the evening peak. The modelling also shows 10 percent of the traffic currently using Harewood Road is likely to divert to the local network to avoid the delays caused by the signals.

4.14    Modelling shows that traffic signals create congestion on Harewood Road as traffic is backed up while the Gardiners Road and Breen’s Road phase is green.

4.15    Traffic signals will not remove all accidents from the intersection. While they will resolve some accidents that are currently occurring by controlling turning movements and providing the ability to cross between Gardiners Road and Breen’s Road, nose to tail accidents between cars approaching the intersection and pedestrian v vehicle accidents are likely to increase as these are common at signalised intersections. The right turns from Gardiners Road and Breen’s Road are also likely to be filter turns so there is still the possibility of accidents between vehicles travelling straight ahead and those turning.

 

5.   Context/Background

Option 1 - Do Minimum Option

5.1       This option uses road marking to reduce the numbers of lanes on Harewood Road to a single straight through lane to allow easier gap selection for vehicles crossing the intersection (Appendix A).

5.2       It creates room for crossing traffic movements to be done in two parts, as there would be sufficient room to wait in the middle of Harewood Road, if required.

5.3       Kerb extensions on Gardiners and Breen’s Road are proposed. This will prevent left turning vehicle views being blocked by cars going straight ahead which is currently creating some of the crashes.

5.4       In addition to the above proposed road layout changes, high friction surfacing is proposed for the Harewood Road lanes to provide more braking friction on the approaches.

5.5       This option does not make any changes to the pedestrian crossing facilities across Harewood Road and minimal improvement on Gardiners and Breen’s with a narrower intersection width.

5.6       This option is not compatible with the Wheels to Wings MCR that is proposed to be constructed along Harewood Road.

5.7       The indicative cost of the option is $200,000. This can be built in the current funding envelope and will likely be eligible for New Zealand Transport Authority (NZTA) subsidy.

5.8       The indicative BCR is 0.14.

5.9       The advantages and disadvantages of this option are detailed below: 

Options 2 and 2A - Left In / Left Out Options

5.10    This option aims to address the crashes associated with the current intersection layout. Two options have been developed that close the median and make Gardiners Road and Breen’s Road left in and left out (Appendix A). Vehicles that wish to travel straight through will need to use the two U-turn slots that already exist.  This manoeuvre has currently been observed on site with a number of vehicles undertaking it due to the difficulty of finding a gap and crossing six lanes of traffic.

5.11    The closure of the median allows for the creation of a pedestrian crossing point at the intersection, with an option to have this signalised in Option 2a. This will improve safety for students getting to and from Breen’s Intermediate. The signalised crossing will only activate when called by pedestrians, so delays for vehicles on Harewood Road will be minimal.

5.12    This option is compatible with the planned MCR and is the preferred option from a cycleway perspective as cyclists are not delayed by the side road traffic.

5.13    The local network has been modelled to highlight the impact of the median closure. The modelling shows the local network can accommodate the changes to the traffic flow. Some local traffic re-routes to other roads and some traffic chooses to remain on Gardiners Road and Breen’s Road to use the u-turn slots on Harewood Road to complete the turns.

5.14    The indicative cost is $300-$400,000 depending on the installation of a signalised crossing. The non-signalised crossing option can be built in the current funding and both options will likely be eligible for NZTA subsidy.

5.15    The indicative BCR is 0.98 and 0.78.

5.16    The advantages and disadvantages of these options are detailed below:

 

Options 3 and 3A - Traffic Signal Options

5.17    This option addresses the LTP submissions that requested traffic signals at the intersection. Two options have been developed (Appendix A).

5.18    The first (Option 3) is constructed within the current road reserve and providing one straight through lane on Harewood Road. This will lead to increased congestion on Harewood Road due to the traffic being delayed by the signals and the reduction to a single straight through lane.

5.19    The second option (3A) requires land purchase (part of 6-8 properties) on the two approaches to accommodate two straight through lanes and turning lanes and to minimise the congestion on Harewood Road.

5.20    Signalised pedestrian crossings will be provided on all legs of the intersection.

5.21    Traffic signals will not resolve the crash history at the intersection as rear end collisions and right turn filter crashes against straight through traffic are typical at signalised intersections.  Traffic signals do not avoid pedestrian versus vehicle accidents as the pedestrian phase is a filtered phase with associated turning vehicles.

5.22    Traffic signals are likely to attract additional traffic onto Gardiners Road and Breen’s Road as it will become an attractive shortcut off Johns Road for traffic coming into the City from the north. This may increase the speed and volume of traffic outside the Breen’s Intermediate. It will possibly result in increased crashes at the Wairakei Road / Breen’s Road intersection which has very poor road geometry and available site distances. This could result in the need to undertake intersection safety improvements (potentially traffic signals) at this T-intersection in the future.

5.23    Modelling shows that traffic will increase by 30 percent on Breen’s Road in the evening peak. It also shows approximately 10 percent of the current traffic on Harewood Road will divert off Harewood Road onto the local network to avoid the delays caused by the traffic signals. This volume of traffic rat running the local network to avoid delay has more network impact than a median closure associated with the median closure.

5.24    This option is compatible with the planned MCR, but provides a low level of service due to the limited phase time traffic signals are able to provide (approximately 10 seconds every 78 second phase cycle).

5.25    The indicative cost is $1.2 million for Option 3 and $1.7-2.0 million for Option 3A due to the additional land purchase and service relocations required. Neither option can be built within the available funding envelope.

5.26    The indicative BCR is 0.08 for the single lane option, and 0.06 for the two lane option and will likely not be eligible for NZTA subsidy.

5.27    The advantages and disadvantages of these options are detailed below:

Harewood Road corridor study findings and recommendations

Reference:

Presenter(s):

Mark Gregory, Transport Network Planner

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to endorse the findings of the Corridor study.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being provided to Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to advise upon findings and recommendations of the corridor study.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by review of the Significance and Engagement Policy (20 June 2017).

2.1.2   There is no Community Consultation required by this project.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Waimairi-Harewood Community Board recommend to Council:

3.1       That the corridor study and recommended strategies is received. 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       The corridor study (attachment A) has been undertaken in conjunction with a broader area study, in order to identify a network management plan for the future.

The study considers:

4.1.1   Crash safety and treatment priority analysis for all transport modes.

4.1.2   Movement demands and efficiency for all transport modes.

4.1.3   Overall provision for all modes.

4.1.4   Predicted changes to network demands, based on different future options.

4.1.5   Extent to which current corridor design and operations are ‘fit for future’.

4.1.6   Extent to which the Long Term Plan (LTP) is likely to address future needs; and identification of specific future scheme design requirements.

4.1.7   Recommended resolutions to above problems, including a broader network management perspective.

4.2       For each point raised above, the key conclusions include:

4.2.1   Crash safety and treatment priority analysis for all transport modes:

·     The majority of crashes are occurring at intersections, and chiefly include drivers failing to give way in priority situations.

·     The intersection of Harewood Road / Greers Road has the highest corridor ranking in city wide crash analysis (placed at 21st), with specific crash problems including:

-     A high number of crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists.

-     Right turn movements from Greers Road (from north) failing to give way to opposing movements from the south.

-     The Major Cycle Route (MCR) project has capacity to improve the cyclists and pedestrian related crashes; the right turn crashes will likely reduce too as a consequence of falling vehicle demands following wider network improvements (through LTP).

·     Speeding is a problem in the corridor, particularly further west, and this is likely to impact upon safety in the future.

·     The intersection of Harewood / Gardiners / Breens Roads has been reviewed, in response to requests for significant intervention, and the study concludes that:

-     There was a spike in crashes, coinciding with the route being used as a diversion during transformative works on State Highway 1 (Johns Road), and since this time, the crash route has dropped from 6 crashes in 2014 to 2 crashes in the past 3 years.

-     The severity of crashes is low.

-     The intersection ranks as 62nd worst in the CCC network and 81st in the total network (including NZTA).

·   A detailed study of options has been prepared and is presented separately.

The outlook for the corridor includes a reduction in vehicle demands. A reduction in traffic has potential to exacerbate current speeding problem. It is likely that the current speeding problem is caused by the layout of the road being designed for a higher speed than the posted 50 kilometres per hour.

4.2.2   Movement demands and efficiency for all transport modes

·     The busiest intersection is Harewood Road / Greers Road. The worst movements are the Greers Road northbound movement (traffic approaching from the south), having the narrowest approach with the least number of traffic lanes; and the opposing right turn from Greers (from Northcote) west in Harewood (towards Bishopdale).

·     The two movements above as well as being most delayed are also noted as having the highest crash rate.

·     The crashes do not occur during the morning peak when a right turn filter arrow runs. However, to run this arrow throughout the day would be to exacerbate delays affecting the opposing Greers Road northbound movement.

·     Queues can be observed on approaches to Harewood Road, most notably Farrington Avenue and Wooldridge Road; however, this is occurring for short periods within the day, mostly between 1700 and 1730 hours. Operations are expected to improve in the future.


 

 

4.2.3   Overall provision for all modes

·     There is an over provision of capacity for general traffic through much of the corridor, with particularly low flows observed for a two lane divided road. This results in speeding issues and marginalisation of non-motorised users.

·     Cycle facilities are inconsistent through the corridor, with extensive sections offering no facilities at all. Negotiating intersections can be difficult, for example the cycle lane around the roundabout carries cyclists through a middle of a conflict point. The intersection with Greers Road has a particularly high number of crashes involving cyclists.

·     Pedestrian facilities are provided alongside the roads throughout the corridor; however, the location of crossings often do not align with community ‘desire lines’ (for example the crossing 50m west of Breens Road adds 100m walking distance for students accessing Breens Intermediate School).

4.2.4   Predicted changes to network demands, based on different future options

·     The modelled outcome for the corridor is for a reduction in demand, with an increase in demands on Sawyers Arms Road. This has been found where:

-     LTP schemes for the Sawyers Arms Road – Northcote Road corridor increase capacity and the attractiveness of Sawyers Arms Road.

-     A further decrease on Harewood Road is predicted to occur following the MCR scheme.

-     A significant reduction would occur if the NZTA proceed with the Grade separation scheme of State Highway 1 / Sawyers Arms Road (as currently listed in the Land Transport Plan (albeit with a lower priority rating).

·     The decreases in demand will result in:

-     A decrease in delays at the Bishopdale ‘roundabout’.

-     Reduction in the number of ‘car on car’ crashes in the corridor, simply because the exposure to risk will reduce as traffic demands fall.

-     Increase ‘speeding’, as less traffic reduces impediments to travelling at faster speeds.

·     Changes to the strategic planning context:

-     Development of the rezoned industrial land (of up to 50 Hectares) west of Wooldridge Road is not currently forecast to occur at a rapid rate. However, if it does then the effects of development traffic are not anticipated to change the overall conclusions.

-     Any major NZTA upgrades to the Johns Road / Sawyers Arms Road roundabout (and potentially the Harewood Road roundabout) would result in a further reduction in vehicle demands on Harewood Road to that currently forecast. However, this scheme has a low priority ranking, and would be considered unlikely to proceed at this stage.

-     If both the NZTA scheme and rapid development of the rezoned industrial land should occur, then there would be more significant effects on the Council network, due to the impact of adding more traffic to a situation which would include reducing access to and from the Johns Road via Harewood Road. Such a strategy would include providing an improved connection from Harewood Road (around Wooldridge Road) to Sawyers Arms Road. However, this can be considered a low likelihood scenario at this stage.

4.2.5   Extent to which corridor is ‘fit for future’

·     Overall, road layouts are for a higher design speed and cater for greater demands than those observed and predicted. This is likely to result in safety concerns moving forward and greater marginalisation of pedestrians and cyclists. Level of service for pedestrians and cyclists is low.

·     Specific matters include:

-        Road layout including some geometry that enables / encourages speeding

-        Safety concerns at Greers Road / Harewood Road intersection (ranked 21st most hazardous intersection in Christchurch)

-        A corridor wide level of service issue affecting cyclists

-        Stanleys Road will potentially be relied upon to serve access to a new employment site (47Ha of land rezoned from rural to Business Park through the District Plan Review)

4.2.6   Extent to which the LTP is likely to respond well to future needs and identification of specific future scheme requirements.

·     The following schemes are included in the 2018-28 LTP, and have budget allocated:

-        Wheels to Wings Major Cycle Route (MCR) (Section 2, 2025 – 2029)

-        Intersection improvement: Greers / Northcote / Sawyers Arms Road (2026 – 2029)

·     The following schemes are not included in the 2018-28 LTP:

-     Intersection improvement: Greers / Harewood

-     Intersection improvement: Harewood / Stanleys

-     Intersection improvement: Harewood / Wooldridge

·   The MCR is the most significant project on Harewood Road, and has capacity to:

-     Improve upon the ‘design speed’ issue for the corridor.

-     Address intersection safety concerns.

·     The Greers / Harewood intersection will be traversed by the MCR, and the MCR scheme could address the current operational challenges at the intersection, including:

-     Reducing the crashes affecting cyclists and pedestrians by means of improving alignment and increasing conspicuousness

-     Indirectly improve efficiency of Greers Road: following the MCR, demands on Harewood Road are predicted to fall, allowing for greater ‘green time allocation’ to Greers Road movements: potentially increasing capacity without road widening.

·     Indirect effects of the Greers / Northcote / Sawyers Arms road intersection upgrades will include diversion of current right turn (north to west) movements at Harewood Road, thus reducing exposure to the current highest crash movement. (Reallocation of green time in favour of Greers Road would also likely be effective).

·     The District Plan includes an Outline Development Plan (ODP) (Chapter 16, Appendix 16.8.14) which indicates that the intersections of Harewood / Wooldridge and Harewood / Stanleys require improvement. These could potentially be developer funded; however, this would not extend to the widening of Stanleys Road as well.

·     There is no provision in the LTP to address effects of rapid industrial development alongside NZTA Sawyers Arms Road intersection scheme, (e.g. an improved road connection to Sawyers Arms Road); however, this is considered a low probability scenario at this stage.

·     Therefore, it is recommended that the LTP mostly addresses corridor issues, but that additional monies may be needed in the future to address Stanleys Road, if significant take up occurs at the rezoned business park land.

4.2.7   Recommended resolutions to above problems, including a broader network management perspective

·     The Harewood Road corridor should be addressed as part of a broader network based strategy. Such a strategy includes provision of high quality connections for all users, which involves prioritising different models within different corridors. For the northwest of the City, this is achievable by providing:

-     A quality corridor for general traffic in Sawyers Arms Road. The LTP is making provision for a safer, higher capacity corridor, providing a quality connection within the strategic road network.

-     A quality corridor for cyclists and local access in Harewood Road. The MCR scheme can also address the ‘design speed’ issue currently affecting the corridor.

·     Through detailed investigation, the LTP projects have capability to address specific corridor issues and service gaps. Although the LTP line item of Greers / Harewood is unfunded, the MCR will make changes to the intersection that can both directly and indirectly improve safety.

·     A ‘joined up’ outcome for the network can be achieved through the current LTP.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       On 20 June 2017, the Council requested that a corridor study be undertaken for Harewood Road, in order to identify priorities for intersection improvements and renewals works.

·   The Corridor study has been prepared, engaging with:

-     NZTA crash data base (‘Crash Analysis System’) data and ‘KiwiRAP’ analysis of safety priority

-     The modelling of the corridor within the Council’s city wide traffic model (‘CAST’), including several scenarios from ‘Do nothing’, including the (current) LTP schemes and including possible but unlikely changes such as major improvements at Johns Road / Sawyers Arms Road.

-     The testing of more detailed scheme options

-     Several site visits, including traversing the corridor as a driver, pedestrian and cyclist.

·   A seminar was held on 5 March for the combined ITE Committee, Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board and Papanui-Inness Community Board including a progress report, and also a presentation given by the Major Cycle Route team

·   Following concerns raised regarding the safety of Harewood / Gardiners / Breens intersection, an interim scheme is being developed (separate to the Corridor study).

·   A briefing on this corridor study was held with the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board on 7 September 2018.

Auburn Reserve - Deed of Surrender for Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Lease and New Deed of Lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association

Reference:

18/760380

Presenter(s):

Lisa Barwood Leasing Consultant

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to recommend to the Council to accept the surrender of the current lease for Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Incorporated at Auburn Reserve and enter into a new ground lease with Christchurch Woodturners Association Incorporated over the same area of land at Auburn Reserve.

The request will require that the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board make a recommendation to the Council to accept the surrender of the current lease with Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club prior to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approving a new lease with Christchurch Woodturners Association. 

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated at the request of the Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Incorporated.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decisions in this report is 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 officers completing an assessment of significance of a number of factors:

·   Number of people affected is relatively low.

·   Level of impact – increased activity on the Reserve

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board:

1.         Recommend that the Council approve the surrender of the Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Incorporated’s lease (dated 24 April 2010) over part of Auburn Reserve; and

Subject to number 1 above:

2.         The Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton  Community Board approve a new ground lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association Incorporated over an area of approximately 131m2 on Auburn Reserve being Lot 9 Deposited Plan 15126 CFR CB12A/985, for a period of 33 years broken into three terms of 11 years at an annual rental set in accordance with the Council’s Sports Lease Charges Policy;

3.         Authorise the Property Consultancy Manager to administer and conclude the terms and conditions of the lease including, but not limited to:

a.         Finalising the Deed of Surrender to Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Incorporated;

b.         Finalising the new Deed of Lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association Incorporated.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

4.1.1   Activity: Parks & Foreshore

·     Level of Service: 6.8.5.0 Satisfaction with the range and quality of recreation opportunities within parks - Resident satisfaction with range and quality of recreation facilities within Parks: 85 per cent.

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approve a surrender of the current lease for Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Inc and grant a new lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association Inc (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Not approve and advertise again for a new leaseholder through a second Request For Proposal process

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Concluding the lease obligations of the Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Inc.

·     Christchurch Woodturners are a viable organisation who can assume responsibility for building ownership and maintenance.

·     Christchurch Woodturners conforms with the Council’s Leasing Policy and process as per the Request for Proposal process.

·     Utilising existing buildings on a park.

·     Woodturners would have a permanent home to continue to promote and provide classes.

·     Community have access to facilities that meet their needs.

·     Increases participation in community programmes and events.

·     Improves life skills so that all residents can participate in society

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     An area of Auburn Reserve being exclusively occupied by one club.

·     The only applicant to apply through the Request for Proposal process was the Christchurch Woodturners Association.

The Christchurch Woodturners Association have a strong presence in the community offering courses and participating in community events. They meet all requirements under the Reserves Act 1977 and are a viable organisation. It allows the Christchurch West Amateur Club to wind up their affairs without major financial burden.

 

5.   Context/Background

History Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club

5.1       Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club took over the redundant former scout den on Auburn Reserve and entered into a lease dated 1 August 1987. Since then they have had a decline in membership numbers. Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club contacted the Council to request they proceed with surrendering their lease.  They would then look at selling their building pending a new Club securing a ground lease through the Council.

History Christchurch Woodturners Association

5.2       The first annual general meeting of the Christchurch Woodturners Association was held on 7 March 1996. A committee of eight were elected, three of whom are still on the current committee. The Club started with a membership of 31 and has been as high as 125. Currently there are 69 active members.

5.3       The Christchurch Woodturners Association are currently hiring the building at Auburn Reserve due to being displaced from their previous home at Cobham Intermediate. This is due to development plans at the school. The Club have been hiring the building at Auburn Reserve since the start of 2018 and are good neighbours with no complaints received regarding their activity on the Reserve.

Request for Proposal process

5.4       As a result of Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club requesting a surrender of their current lease, staff advertised an open ‘Request for Proposals’ process (RFP) in order to secure a new tenant for the ground lease available at Auburn Reserve.

5.5       The RFP document outlined the Council’s intentions for the ground lease and selection criteria for applicants.

5.6       The RFP process went live on 1 July 2018 and closed on 1 August 2018. There was one proposal received by the Christchurch Woodturners Association Incorporated.

5.7       Their proposal was very thorough and informative, they are financially viable and have a strong presence in the community offering classes and open days as well as having a presence at other events around the city.

5.8       The successful respondent will be required to negotiate the sale and purchase of the building improvements directly with Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club and provide evidence of such sale and purchase to Council officers.

The Land

5.9       The leased area is approximately 131m2 at Auburn Reserve being Lot 9 Deposited Plan 15126 CFR CB12A/985 having a total area of 1.3929 hectares, being a recreation reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977.

Delegations

5.10    The Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board does not have the delegated authority to accept a surrender of a lease however they may recommend to the Council that the lease be surrendered.

5.11    The Council has delegated to Community Boards the authority to grant new leases on reserves pursuant to section 54 of the Reserves Act 1977. The proposed lease will be granted under the provisions of section 54(1)(b) of that Act.

Parks Management Plan

5.12    The current Management Plan for Neighbourhood Reserves approved by the Waimairi County Council in 1982, provides for the activities:

·   Section 4.13 Leasing – Objective and Policy

·     Objective: to control the use of land by clubs or groups for buildings or other fixed facilities.

·     Policy: The land occupied by any building or any other fixed facility not owned and operated by the Council, will be subject to a lease under the Reserves Act 1977. Any lease granted shall have regard to the First Schedule of the Act, and this management plan.

Public Advertising

5.13    There is no requirement to publically advertise the granting of a new lease in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977 as the activity is in conformity with and contemplated by the approved management plan for the reserve.

Minister of Conservation Consent

5.14    The prior consent of the Minister of Conservation shall not be required before the administering body grants a lease or licence under subsection (1), where:

(a)  The administering body of recreation reserve is territorial authority or a regional council; and

(b)  The reserve is vested in that territorial authority or regional council; and

(c)   A management plan for that reserve has been approved in accordance with section 41; and

(d)  The lease or licence is in conformity with and contemplated by that management plan.


 

6.   Option 1 - Surrender lease for Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Inc and grant a new lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association Inc (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Recommend that the Council approve the surrender of the current lease for Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Incorporated and that the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board grant a new lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association Incorporated.

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 not required.

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       Members of both Amateur Radio Club and Woodturners Association are specifically affected by this option due to the Radio Club needing to wind up and sell their building. The Woodturners require a building to run classes and open days and meet all requirements under the Reserves Act.  Their views support this request.

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 – There is no cost to the Council other than staff time which is budgeted for. An annual rental is being charged in accordance with the Council’s charging policy for sports club ground leases.

6.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – not applicable

6.9       Funding source – not applicable

Legal Implications

6.10    There is a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

6.11    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

6.12    The legal consideration is the Reserves Act 1977 and the Council’s Leasing Council Property policy. The preparation of a Surrender document and a new ground Lease is a routine matter on which the legal situation is well known and settled.

Risks and Mitigations  

6.13    There is a risk that granting a lease for 33 years to Woodturners and their circumstances change.  This may result in Woodturners needing to surrender the lease.

6.13.1 Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented will be low.

6.13.2 Planned or current treatment(s) include the lease will consist of three terms of 11 years. This will allow the Woodturners to determine any changes in the level of service they provide to their members. The lease document will protect the Council’s interests on the reserve and provide measures for dealing with early termination or abandonment.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies - Approval by the Council to surrender the Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club lease; granting a new lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association Incorporated.

6.15    Implementation timeframe – Completion of lease documentation after resolution by the Council and Community Board.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   Concluding the lease obligations of the Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club Inc.

·   Christchurch Woodturners are a viable organisation who can assume responsibility for building ownership and maintenance.

·   Christchurch Woodturners conforms with the Council’s Leasing Policy and process as per the Request for Proposal process.

·   Utilising existing buildings on a park.

·   Woodturners would have a permanent home to continue to promote and provide classes.

·   Community have access to facilities that meet their needs.

·   Increases participation in community programmes and events.

·   Improves life skills so that all residents can participate in society.

6.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   An area of Auburn Reserve being exclusively occupied by one club.

·   The only applicant to apply through the Request for Proposal process was the Christchurch Woodturners Association.


 

7.   Option 2 – Not Approve and Run a Second Request For Proposal process

Option Description

7.1       Not to approve a lease to Christchurch Woodturners Association and advertise again for a new leaseholder through a second Request For Proposal process.

Significance

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

7.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are not required.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4       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

7.5       The Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club are specifically affected by this option due to the need to wind up the club due to lack of members.  Their views are greatly impacted by having to maintain and pay for a lease they are struggling to service. The Christchurch Woodturners are also affected as they need Clubrooms from which to service their members from and will need to find another place to be. Neither of the Clubs would support this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation – the cost to the Council would be running and advertising costs for a new Request for Proposal process that may not yield a new tenant/owner of the land and building.

7.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – no cost to the Council unless the Christchurch West Amateur Radio Club walked away from the lease and building.

7.9       Funding source – not applicable unless current tenant walks away.

Legal Implications

7.10    There is a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision.

7.11    This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

7.12    The legal consideration is routine matter on which the legal situation is well known and settled.

Risks and Mitigations  

7.13    There is a risk that another tenant/buyer is not found by having another Request for Proposal process.  This may result in having a building on a reserve that is not being maintained or utilised. The building will fall into disrepair and may become a financial burden to the Council.

7.13.1 Residual risk rating: The residual rating of the risk after the below treatment(s) is implemented will be low.

7.13.2 Planned or current treatment(s) include working with the current Tenant to ensure the conditions of their lease there are met.

 

Implementation

7.14    Implementation dependencies - Community Board and Council decision.

7.15    Implementation timeframe – immediately to advise Tenant that surrender and new lease have been declined

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   No advantage to the Council or the current tenant.

7.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Current Lease holder will need to find a new buyer for the building that may not meet the Reserves Act as an approved activity.

·   Current Tennant will not be able to wind up their Club and move on.

·   The Council as Landlord will be seen to be unreasonable.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 – 2028):

4.1.1   Activity: Parks & Foreshore

·     Level of Service: 6.0.1.0 Parks are provided, managed and maintained in a clean, tidy, safe, functional and equitable manner (Maintenance) - Maintenance plan Key performance indicators = 90% achieved.

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Proposed reserve names and classifications are recommended to the Council (preferred option).

·     Option 2 – The reserves are not named or classified.

4.3       Option Summary – Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The reserve has an official name that can be used in locating and promoting the reserve.

·     The reserve can be entered into the Council’s database enabling it to be given a park identifier and added to a maintenance contract.

·     The classification of the reserve confirms the vested purpose and use of the reserve in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     There are no disadvantages identified.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       A number of new reserves have been vested in the Christchurch City Council as part of subdivision developments in the Halswell Ward. The Council Policy Register: Naming of Reserves and Facilities, states that all reserves vested in or under the control of the Council shall be given an appropriate name. New reserves are required to be allocated a name before they can be entered into the Council's maintenance contracts.

5.2       Under the Reserves Act 1977, section 16 (2A), any land that has been vested with the Council can be declared a reserve providing it has been given a classification through a Council resolution. The classification of the reserve will provide the basis as to how the reserve should be managed and administered, for example, a recreation reserve compared to a drainage reserve.

5.3       At the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting on 28 November 2017 the Board requested the naming of the sports park in Knights Stream to lie on the table pending the formal naming of the nearby new primary school. The new primary school has been formally named “Knights Stream Primary School”. While the naming of the sports park was on hold the Community Board requested staff to investigate alternative names for the site. After further research the recommendation is to maintain the original recommendation of Opouria Park, which contains Lot 992 DP 506967, Lot 920 DP 479877, and Lot 922 DP 479877.

5.4      

6.   Option 1 – Proposed reserve names and classifications are recommended to the Council (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       The proposed names are for reserves that have been vested with the Council at the time of the development of the subdivision. The classification of the reserve through a Council resolution complies with the Reserves Act for providing the basis of how the reserve is managed and administered.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3       Mana Whenua were consulted and recommended the proposed name for the recreation reserves which has been incorporated in Attachment A.

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       The reserve land has been vested in the Council at the time of the development of the subdivision. The naming of the reserves usually commences before the land titles have been issued both for the proposed reserve and any adjoining prospective residential land owners, which has meant it has not been possible to consult with adjoining residents, neighbourhood or residential groups.

6.5       The location of the reserve and often the draft landscape plans with the subdivision's proposed reserve name (originated by the developer) are available to prospective property buyers.

6.6       The naming of reserves in subdivisions follows a similar process to the Community Board consideration of appropriating names for public roads within a subdivision.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation – There are no direct financial implications associated with the allocation of reserve names or the classification of a reserve, which are administrative processes undertaken as an operational expense.

6.9       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – There is a requirement for reserves to be named before they can be entered into the Council’s database and allocated to a maintenance contract. Once the parks have been included in the maintenance contract the annual cost to maintain these four new parks is $17,495 per annum.  

6.10    Funding source – Funding to maintain these new parks will be sourced from the Parks Operational budget. No budget provision have been made in the current 2018-2028 Long Term Plan period for annual maintenance cost.

Legal Implications

6.11    There are no negative legal implications to the naming and classification of the Council land as a reserve. The land has already been vested under the Reserves Act 1977 as a reserve. The classification of the land endorses the purpose the land was acquired in accordance with section 16(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977. The naming of the reserve complies with the Council Policy Register: Naming of Reserves and Facilities.

Risks and Mitigations

6.12    There are minimal, if any risks as the name of the reserves complies with the Council Policy Register: Naming of Reserves and Facilities.

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies – no known dependencies.

6.14    Implementation timeframe – approximately one month after the names have been approved by Council.

Option Summary – Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   The reserve has an official name that can be used in locating and promoting the reserve.

·   The reserve can be entered into the Council’s database enabling it to be given a park identifier and added to a maintenance contract.

·   The classification of the reserve confirms the vested purpose and use of the reserve in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977.

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   There are no disadvantages.

7.   Option 2 – The reserves are not named or classified

Option Description

7.1       The Community Board may determine they will not name the parks or recommend to the Council the classification of the reserves.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is medium consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

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       The community are specifically affected by this option as there would be no maintenance of the parks carried out under the negotiated contract rates. Maintenance of the parks would be at a higher financial cost to the community and ratepayers than if the park was part of a maintenance contract. The parks would not be able to be entered in the Council SAP system and could therefore not be given a park identifier or entered into the parks maintenance contract.

7.5       The community views are for the parks to be maintained and at a reasonable financial rate.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

7.6.1   Inconsistency – the Council's Level of Service is to maintain Council parks to the specified standard.

7.6.2   Reason for inconsistency – the parks would not be able to be entered into SAP and could not therefore be added to the parks maintenance contract.

7.6.3   Amendment necessary – to name the parks to enable them to be entered into SAP, given a park identifier and added to the parks maintenance contract.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation – If the reserves cannot be maintained under the parks maintenance contact the Council is charged a much higher rate for them to be maintained as a one-off activity.

7.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – the Council is charged a much higher rate to maintain reserves if they are not included in the Council's negotiated parks maintenance contracts.

7.9       Funding source – parks operational budget.

Legal Implications

7.10    The Council is obliged to maintain the Council reserves in accordance with the Levels of Service, notified to the public through the Long Term Plan (LTP) process as required by the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA).

Risks and Mitigations

7.11    To not name the reserves is high risk as the reserves cannot be maintained under the parks maintenance contracts and if they are not maintained to the specified Levels of Service, there could be a conflict with the Council’s Long Term Plan and the Local Government Act. Or the parks are maintained to the specified Levels of Service but the Council is charged a higher rate to maintain the parks as they are not part of the negotiated parks maintenance contract.

Implementation

7.12    Implementation dependencies – no known dependences.

7.13    Implementation timeframe – not applicable if reserve names not approved.

Option Summary – Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   There are no advantages for not naming the reserves.

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The reserves cannot be entered into the Council’s database, provided with a park identifier.

·   The reserves cannot be added to the parks maintenance contract.

·   The maintenance of the reserves would be charged at a higher rate.

·   If the reserves are not maintained, they would not comply with the Levels of Service, Long Term Plan or Local Government Act.

4.2       Chester Street West - Kea Crossing and Parking Changes Kilmore Street- Parking Changes.

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

Inner City East Revitalisation Project

5.1       Tidiness and Appearance.  The Working Group continues to work through plans to progress the issues identified by the community in consultations to date. The first focus has been on tidiness and rubbish, improving the appearance of the area and building pride in the community. 

The prevalence of large inorganic rubbish such as mattresses and furniture items being left on the side of the road was identified as a particular issue.  Factors leading to this happening in the community include the dominance of rental properties in the area, low incomes, and very few households being able to afford a car or trailer.  Over a number of weeks group members established a base line of information of what was being dumped, where.  This was supplemented with information from the Council about what Customer Service Requests (CSR’s) were being received in the area.   


The Whare Roimata Labour Pool has since done a pick-up of large inorganic rubbish in the area and taken it to the dump. The Working Group is planning once a month large inorganic waste pickups from October 2018 to May 2019.  For the first four months there will be a soft launch with no formal public announcement to avoid householders and landlords seeing it as a service that can be relied on. The service will take place on the last Monday of the month to coincide with Council rubbish day. 

 

5.2       Community Clean Up Day. The Working Group is working alongside Keep Christchurch Beautiful to organise a community clean-up day on Saturday 15 September with the tag line: Don’t Rubbish Linwood, Pick it up. Community members will have an opportunity to dump their rubbish at a provided skip, clean up the Linwood Village area and share their ideas about how the area can continue to be beatified and improved.

The third community newsletter is attached for information (Attachment G).

5.3       Reference Group. A Reference Group has now been established to support and work with the Working Group in developing a Revitalisation Plan for the inner city east. Members of the group have been chosen as people with a special interest in the area, being able to advocate and provide advice to advance the interests of the area and participate in discussions to develop and implement the revitalisation plan.

The initial members of the reference group are:

·     Ray Tye, Stakeholder Relations Manager, Housing New Zealand Corporation;

·     Leairne Dow, NZ Police Area Prevention Manager;

·     Duncan Webb, MP, Christchurch Central;

·     Lucy D’aeth, Public Health Specialist, Community Public Health;

·     Lauren Ball, Senior Advisor, Community Engagement and Reintegration, Department of Corrections;

·     Matthew Mark, Christchurch City Missioner;

·     Jake McLelaan, Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board Deputy Chairperson;

·     Deon Swiggs, Councillor, Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board;

·     Carolyn Ingles, Head of Urban Design, Regeneration and Heritage, City Council; and

·     Kaharoa Manihera, Senior Advisor Ngai Tāhu and Māori Relations, City Council.

The Reference Group had its first meeting on 21 August 2018.

5.4       “Good Sort” project -The Working Group has been considering positive ways of responding   to the safety issues expressed by members of the community especially, in the Linwood Village area.  A young man has been employed on a trial basis as a “good sort” to respond to community safety concerns, break down barriers between the street people and community members, develop positive relations that are respectful of diversity and provide support for people on the street.  He will be employed two days a week for four hours for a period of three months, after which the pilot will be evaluated.

Community Facilities (updates and future plans)

5.5       Ōpāwa Volunteer Library Rebuild - In August 2018 the Ōpāwa Volunteer Library Rebuild Working Group agreed on the final design brief for the Library rebuild. The Library will be a key facility in Ōpāwa village where people can come together to connect and socialise while the building itself will contribute to neighbourhood character and a sense of place. The primary purpose of the building will be an adult and children’s library, and it will also have a small meeting room available for community use. The building will be leased by the Ōpāwa Volunteer Library Committee, which will also manage meeting room bookings.

6.2       Organics Processing Plant – Mr Geoffrey King, resident, spoke to the Board regarding the ongoing odour issues associated with the Council’s Bromley Organics Processing Plant.  Mr King questioned the Board on what is being done about the odour.

6.3       Land Development – Mr Christian Jordan, local property owner, advised the Board that he was developing his land in Heathcote Street, Woolston.  Mr Jordan advised that he had discussed the opportunity with Council staff of Council buying a portion of the development for an accessway or reserve.

6.4       Woolston Community Library - The Woolston Community Library began providing services the day after the August opening event for the new building.

Their opening hours are Monday to Friday 11am to 3pm, and Saturday 10am to noon. 

In the first two weeks of operation, they have had 44 people use the Library. These people represent largely those who are retired or at home during the day, due to opening hours. The Saturday morning opening time is popular. The Library’s membership fee is $2, and it costs $1 to hire each book for three weeks.  

The Library committee has received very positive feedback about their new premises.

6.5       Woolston Community Library Building - The Woolston Community Library Building opened on 14 August. Media coverage related to the opening has been positive. Media comments included that the library and facility will bring pride to the heart of the community, and signals a milestone in the area’s rebuild.  

The facility has a small hall available for meetings, functions, exercise classes, and educational activities. In addition there is a small meeting room available for hire. The hall has a capacity of 90 people (standing), and the meeting room holds four people.

The facility is booked by phoning or emailing the Council’s call centre. Terms and conditions, fees, and details about the building, are available on the Council’s website.

Work is underway to produce a brochure about the facility, including hire details; and for signage to be installed about how to hire the facility.  

6.6       Woolston Community Centre - The Woolston Community Centre Committee is currently working on a three year strategic plan. As part of this process the Centre is updating its vision and mission, and refreshing its goals. This will include a strengthening of the Centre’s structure and policies. When the strategic planning exercise is complete, the Woolston Community Centre would like to present its plan to the Community Board.

6.7       Woolston Preschool - The Woolston Preschool has 39 children on its roll and aims to reflect the diversity of the Woolston community, and provide an environment where families feel comfortable and welcome.

At its June AGM a new committee was appointed. A current focus of the Preschool is to strengthen its governance structure.

Bromley Community Centre - Bromley Community Centre continues to function as a busy community centre with a wide range of weekly activities and programmes available. Weekly activities include: afterschool children’s recreation, line dancing, women’s craft group, playgroup, affordable fruit and vege coop., Katang exercise, computer tuition, Zuu fitness, scrapbooking, yoga, and a social art group. Regular community events are organised, for example: Matariki celebrations, dance workshop, and a market day.

The Bromley Community Centre reports that August has been the busiest month this year in terms of usage of the Centre. The total hours the Centre was used (excluding when employees are working) was 259 hours. This number includes all the advertised groups, activities, regular hires, casual hires (weekend events), community meetings, and events. There are only three Saturdays and three Sundays available for hire for the remainder of the year. 

6.8       Te Whare Taonga o Nga Iwi Katoa Linwood Community Resource Centre - The Linwood Resource Centre has appointed a new community development worker, Rae Svarnas.  Rae also manages the day to day running of the Centre’s operations. The Centre’s meeting room has been repainted, and new curtains and furniture sourced. The Centre continues to provide courses, resources, a community garden, and a community / men’s shed. 

6.9       Sumner Theatre Group - The Community Board recently awarded the Sumner Theatre Group funding towards the purchase and installation of stage curtains. The Theatre Group’s Sumner Cabaret season has now begun at Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre. The ticket sales for many of the cabaret nights are managed by organisations such as community groups, sports clubs and schools, to enable them to fundraise while having an enjoyable social night.

6.10    Community Maintenance of Roadside Vegetation in Redcliffs - The Redcliffs Residents Association would like to be involved in planting and maintenance of roadside vegetation in the village centre to tidy the area and contribute to a sense of pride in the community. The Association is currently working with the Council to develop a Health and Safety Plan and select appropriate plant types. The Association plans to hold regular working bees and a community day to socialise and thank volunteers.

6.11    Aspirations of Mt Pleasant Residents - The Mt Pleasant Community Centre and Residents’ Association is currently developing a needs assessment to identify any activities, events and services that residents would like in the area and any residents who would like to be involved with planning and delivery. While there is not capacity to act on all identified needs, the findings will inform new activities, events and services delivered by the Association or community partners.

The Association has worked with key organisations and agencies in the area to develop the assessment questions. Interviews will be conducted by door knocking at all residences and visiting Mt Pleasant Primary School in September-October 2018.

6.12    Children and Youth in Waltham

Background - Waltham is a diverse, changing and predominantly low income community with the highest proportion of single parent households in Christchurch. To gain an understanding of the needs and aspirations of children and youth, build on identified strengths and identify any gaps, community members initiated a needs assessment and a revitalisation of Waltham Park.

In August 2018 a meeting was held with residents, local community organisations and elected members to present a report on the needs and aspirations of children and youth (Attachment H) and a Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) assessment of Waltham Park (Attachment I).

Findings - A key finding from the former report is that more supervised, free (or low cost), culturally appropriate activities and programmes for children and youth need to be held locally with concurrent sessions for siblings. In particular children would like to participate in more physical activities. The CPTED assessment identified a range of recommendations to make Waltham Park a safer and more attractive place to play, hang out and visit.

The meeting participants had a productive and positive discussion around next steps, and identified the following initiatives as priorities. The group will meet again in October 2018 to review progress.

Initiatives that the community is investigating include:

·    Organising more free activities for children and youth in Waltham, for example a community touch tournament followed by a barbeque;

·    Establishing a programme similar to the Shiloh Programme, which was an after-school programme for 10-12 year old girls to reinforce life skills and encourage wise choices;

·    Encouraging multiple residents to apply to the Board’s Neighbourhood Week Fund to pool funding and hold a community event at Waltham Park;

·    Coordinating a mural on the exterior wall of Waltham Lido Pool, with involvement from Waltham Primary School and pool users.

Initiatives at Waltham Park that the Council is investigating include:

·    Pruning vegetation to improve sightlines;

·    Ensuring the skate bowl’s drain is regularly checked and cleared of debris to prevent rain water accumulation;

·    In Winter/Spring 2019 planting native vegetation with volunteer support;

·    At the start of FY2019/20, investigate whether funding is available for some of the initiatives below and work with the community to identify priorities:

·    Installing fencing around the park’s perimeter near the playground to prevent toddlers and children from running onto busy roads;

·    Installing a picnic table;

·    Constructing a path from the Wilsons Road frontage, along the pool wall facing the park, to link with the skate bowl and playground area to help activate this part of the park.

·    From FY2023/24-FY24/25, when funding is allocated in the Long Term Plan, renewing the playground with an inclusive, accessible design with play equipment for a range of age groups;

·    Investigating a Long Term Plan bid to coincide with the playground renewal to build a full-sized basketball court (there is currently a half-court) and conduct further consultation on the appropriateness of the skate bowl.

6.13    Roimata Food Commons - The Roimata Food Commons project is a community-led initiative to develop parts of Radley Park as a community orchard and vegetable garden. Project goals include building food resilience by providing fruit and vegetables to the local community, environmental education programmes for children and youth and regular community working bees to grow environmental awareness, community ownership and connection.

In August 2018 the Board approved a lease to Roimata Food Commons Trust (Roimata) over part of Radley Park. At this meeting the Board will consider a landscape plan for Radley Park, which was developed by the Council in collaboration with Roimata.  Roimata is currently developing a business plan to confirm and clarify its vision, mission and goals and how it plans to achieve these. After the landscape plan is approved, Roimata will develop a Health and Safety Plan and a Memorandum of Understanding with the Council outlining maintenance roles and responsibilities. Roimata plans to hold community working bees to build and plant a vegetable garden before summer 2018.

7.   Community Board Matters of Interest  

7.1       The Breeze Walking Festival - Spring is here and so is The Breeze Walking Festival from 29 September to Sunday 14 October. The festival is now in its seventh year, and offers 50 free walks with a range of easy, medium and challenging routes.  Many of the walks combine the chance to learn more about nature, culture, history and new developments around our city and region. Booklets are available from Libraries, Service Centres, or Recreation and Sport Centre and also online. The feature event for the opening weekend is ‘Dogs Day Out’ to be held at Ferrymead Park and Ferrymead Heritage Park on Sunday 30 September from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

Walking Festival tile 780x336-

7.2       Linwood Avenue School Pool will not be opened this summer for the community to use due to building work being done at Linwood Avenue School.

7.3       LYFE (Linwood Youth Festival Experience) and Poly Fest 2019.  Planning is underway for LYFE with the recruitment of crew aged 12 – 18 years and a LYFE Advisory Group made up of local youth focused organisations.  LYFE will be held on 9 March and Polyfest will be held on the 16 March.  These two events are highlights for the local community as both involve many young people and their whanau.

7.4       Linwood Keas had a nail biting, double victory for the season at the historic Rugby League Park – formerly Addington Showgrounds for the last time at the venue.  They won both the women’s premiership grand final 38-33 against Papanui Tigers and the men’s grand final 20 - 16 against Hornby Panthers.  Both teams created club history with the Women's team gaining their first ever title and the Men's team winning their third consecutive title.

Report from Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board  – 3 September 2018

 

19.    Linwood-Eastgate Area Integrated Transport Study

Reference:

18/934730

Presenter(s):

Hamid Mirbaha, Senior Transport Network Planner - Specialist
Philip Basher, Transport Policy Engineer

 

 

 

1.  Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board Consideration

 

The Board support the concept of an integrated transport hub at Eastgate.  However, the Board wishes to understand Environment Canterbury’s amendments to local bus routes once a decision has been made, the Regional Public Transport Plan and the use of the recently announced New Zealand Transport Authority’s funding for public transport.  The Board requests a Council/Community Board joint seminar with Environment Canterbury on the city’s public transport prior to March 2019 to inform future funding options.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

 

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board recommends that:

1.         The Council notes the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study outcomes and recommendations to shape the future Long Term Plan transport programmes for this key suburban centre.

2.         The Council endorses the staff initiative to use the balance of funds from the recently completed Aldwins/Buckleys/Linwood Intersection Safety project for the Buckleys Road bus passenger facilities upgrade, i.e. the preferred option from the 2017 Community Board and Council reports.

 

3.  Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board Recommendation to Council

 

Part A

That the Council:

1.         Notes the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study outcomes and recommendations to shape the future Long Term Plan transport programmes for this key suburban centre and request that funding be allocated through the 2019 Council Annual Plan process.

2.         Endorses the use of the balance of funds from the recently completed Aldwins/Buckleys/Linwood Intersection Safety project for the Buckleys Road bus passenger facilities upgrade, i.e. the preferred option from the 2017 Community Board and Council reports.

3.         Request a Council/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board joint seminar with ECan to be held prior to March 2019 on public transport in the Community Board Area to inform future funding options.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board is to consider the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study (Attachments A and its appendices in Attachment B) and make a recommendation to the Council.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is to fulfil the Council’s resolution CNCL/2017/00126:

1.2.1   Request staff further evaluate the preferred option (Buckleys Road Bus Passenger Facilities Upgrade) for consideration by the Linwood/Central/Heathcote Community Board in time for inclusion in the 2018 Long Term Plan.

1.2.2   Request staff to develop an integrated transport plan for the immediate area taking into consideration all of the works that are occurring and are proposed.

2.   Significance

a)         The decisions in this report are medium significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by applying the policy’s criteria to this project, i.e. the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study and its recommendations.

2.1.2   The future community engagement and consultation for the projects outlined in this report will reflect this assessment.

 

3     Staff Recommendations

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board recommends that:

1.         The Council notes the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study outcomes and recommendations to shape the future Long Term Plan transport programmes for this key suburban centre. 

2.         The Council endorses the use of the balance of funds from the recently completed Aldwins/Buckleys/Linwood Intersection Safety project for the Buckleys Road bus passenger facilities upgrade, i.e. the preferred option from the 2017 Community Board and Council reports.

4     Key Points

4.1       Despite the Council’s first resolution (and the staff’s second recommendation) the proposed project was not included in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan (LTP).

4.2       The Aldwins Road/Buckleys Road/Linwood Avenue intersection has been recognised on the Council’s list of intersections identified with safety issues.  The safety programme was appeared in the 2015-25 LTP under the ID 17103 with a budget of about $1.1 million and initiated in the financial year 2017/18.  Following an extensive review of the intersection’s crash history and patterns, the intersection’s traffic signal cycle was upgraded in June 2017. The upgrade eliminated all right-turn filter movements during the day and improved pedestrian protection at the intersection.  Given the changes were recently made to the intersection, there is insufficient crash data available to determine if these changes have addressed the crash risk satisfactorily.  Nevertheless, a critical action for the intersection safety project is to continue monitoring the crash history to determine if the number and severity of crashes are reduced after a few years.

4.3       Currently the remaining resources of $1.1 million allocated to the intersection safety programme are on hold and could be made available to fund the project outlined below (section 4.4). 

4.4       The Buckleys Road bus passenger hub upgrade option would seek to improve pedestrian safety and bus passenger experience with a focus on the existing facilities at the Buckleys Road bus hub. This includes a signalised pedestrian crossing facility on Buckleys Road adjacent to the bus hub, an upgrade to the on-street bus shelters by providing larger and better weather proofed structures with improved seating and real time information (RTI), and enhancement to the footpath and cycleway connectivity and consistency in the surrounding area.

4.5       In accordance with the Council’s second resolution staff have prepared the Linwood–Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study (see Attachment A and its appendices in Attachment B). This study provides a detailed review of all transport issues in the area and provides a number of general and targeted recommendations for later consideration.

4.6       This report does not outline options as it is dealing with the resolutions outlined in section 1.2, e.g.:

·   Future proofing the preferred option to upgrade the bus passenger facilities on Buckleys Road, including a signalised pedestrian crossing.

·   Reviewing the recommendations in the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study to the Community Board and the Council. It is recommended that the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and the Council note the contents of the report, including the recommendations as a basis for future capital and operational transport spending at this key suburban location.

4.7       The 2017 Community Board and Council reports reviewed the potential PT Hub upgrade options, which were:

·   Option 1 – Buckleys Road facilities upgrade (preferred option)

·   Option 2 – Buckleys Road facilities upgrade on-street and waiting lounge

·   Option 3 – Eastgate Mall car park (rear entrance)

·   Option 4 – Cranley Street former library site

 

5     Context/Background

Background

5.1    The Hagley/Ferrymead Community Board meeting on 5 July 2016 considered a report reviewing options to relocate the bus stop adjacent to 35 Buckleys Road to Cranley Street. The Community Board resolved that the Council “request the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Committee explore options to build a covered integrated bus interchange at Linwood.”

5.2    This was considered by the Council on 11 August 2016 and the Council resolved on a joint Infrastructure, Transport & Environment Committee and Hagley/Ferrymead Community workshop that was held on 7 September 2016.

5.3    Utilising the issues and suggestions discussed in the workshop four options (paragraph 4.7) were drafted by staff and considered by the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board on 3 April 2017 and the Council on 17 May 2017. This process led to the completion of the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study and its recommendations.

5.4    In addition the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board and the Council resolutions identified the preferred option for the upgraded bus passenger facilities on Buckleys Road to be on-street shelters, seats, signs and passenger information. These improvements would be coupled with the proposed signalised pedestrian crossing to replace the current uncontrolled crossing.

Context

5.5    The Linwood / Eastgate Public Transport (PT) Hub was identified as a key interchange site in 2005. The Council commissioned Beca consultants to prepare a scoping report on site options at Linwood/Eastgate, which identified several options some of which are no longer feasible.

5.6    The key PT interchange status is confirmed in the Christchurch Strategic Transport Plan 2012, and Metro’s Hub & Spokes PT Network. The Hubs and Spokes is dependent on five core services, and six PT hubs for interchanging passengers including the Central City Exchange and Linwood/Eastgate.

5.7    Two core PT services operate in the Linwood/Eastgate area e.g. the Orbiter and Yellow services. The PT Hub is designated to allow the interchange of passengers to and from core services to local routes. The 80 City Connector service (Lincoln – Parklands) also stops at the Linwood-Eastgate Hub. The current local bus routes operating in the study area are 140, 145 and 535, of which the latter two terminate at Linwood/Eastgate.  The Metro PT Network is currently being reviewed at part of ECan’s Regional Passenger Transport Plan review process and these local routes may be cancelled or modified. However, the Orbiter, Yellow and 80 services are unlikely to be changed in the Linwood-Eastgate area.

5.8    The other key PT hubs have either been upgraded recently, e.g. Riccarton and Northlands, or have active projects seeking improved facilities, e.g. The Palms bus stop upgrades. Riccarton and Northlands were identified as part of the 2013 Crown / Council cost sharing agreement as the two busiest suburban hubs in Christchurch. 

5.9    It is widely acknowledged that the passenger facilities at the Linwood-Eastgate Hub are inadequate and in need of improvement. The bus stops in front of Eastgate Mall cater for up to 30 buses per hour in both directions and board up to 1,500 passengers per day. This places Linwood-Eastgate as Christchurch’s third busiest PT interchange rivalling Papanui/Northlands, and only outstripped by the central City Exchange and the Riccarton Hub.

Current Situation

5.10 The Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study contains the following recommendations for future action:

Active Transport - Pedestrian

·   Investigate as part of a future upgrade of the Buckleys Road PT passenger facilities the provision of the signalised pedestrian crossing to replace the current uncontrolled crossing.

·   Investigate and provide tactile pavers at all crossing facilities to ensure safe crossings for visually impaired pedestrians.

·   Audit the footpath conditions to ensure acceptable quality of footpaths for the mobility impaired. Also to ensure an attractive environment for walking.

·   To address the unconventional footpath for Linwood Avenue from the corner with Buckleys Road to Cranley Street where currently pedestrians are directed to walk through the McDonalds’ car park; two solutions have potential to address this matter:

a)     The current pedestrian entrance at the corner of Buckleys Road for the footpath across the McDonalds car park is not clear, particularly if the pedestrian is not familiar with the area. It would benefit from improved signage and perhaps footpath markings.

b)     Review options to install a footpath adjacent to the Linwood Avenue traffic lanes to replace the link through the car parks, subject to LTP funding.

Active Transport - Cycle

·   Review and provide appropriate on-street cycle lane facilities that are consistent with the Guidelines for local cycleways.

·   Investigate and provide appropriate cycle facilities (i.e. advanced stop boxes, hook turns and coloured cycle lanes) at all signalised intersections in the Linwood-Eastgate study area.

·   Investigate and provide appropriate cycle parking facilities where demand exists in the Linwood-Eastgate study area.

Public Transport

·   As part of any public transport future intervention it is critical to upgrade the passenger shelters and bus stops on Buckleys Road (opposite the Mall) to match those facilities on the Mall’s side of this road.

·   Future improvements to the PT passenger facilities on Buckleys Road should be coupled with a proposed signalised pedestrian facility to upgrade the existing crossing.

·   Recognise that an upgraded PT passenger Hub would be required in the future if PT patronage grows substantially.

·   Recognise PT priority on the core CBD – New Brighton corridor is likely to be required in the medium to long term.

Safety

·   Undertake a comprehensive crash analysis for the Linwood/Eastgate Study area to assess current and future safety factors and risks.

·   Monitor the future crash history (from 2018) for the Aldwins Road/Buckleys Road/Linwood Avenue intersection in the respect of the recent safety led changes to the traffic signals.

·   Monitor the future crash history (from 2018) for the Aldwins Road/Marlborough Street intersection in the respect of the recent upgrade and installation of signalised pedestrian/cycle crossing.

·   Review the crash history for the Hereford Street/Linwood Avenue to identify potential interventions to improve safety.

General Traffic

·   Recognising there are limits to expand the capacity of the arterial roads in the Linwood-Eastgate Study area and that the network should be managed effectively and efficiently. This may include the reallocation of road space particularly to bus priority and active travel modes.

·   Acknowledging the corridor optimisation which has been undertaken in the area.

·   Any modal recommendation listed below will have to be taken in the context of the integrated transport strategy to ensure that the Council’s priorities are upheld and any negative outcomes for other modes are minimised.

Freight

·   Ensure that freight requirements for the Linwood/Eastgate study area are accommodated in future transport projects and resource consent approvals without compromising the overarching environmental and transport objectives.

·   Preserve the study area’s existing reliance with off-street loading facilities to maintain the arterial road’s network efficiency, particularly in respect of Eastgate Mall.

·   If the proposed signalised pedestrian crossing on Buckleys Road is approved for installation it must be able to accommodate the over dimension routes’ requirements for height and width clearances.

Parking

·   Any future proposals to reallocate road space away from parking to either accommodate more traffic lanes (or alternative modes of transport) or further development of the Eastgate Mall site requires careful consideration of the impact on on-street parking levels, particularly in the context of adjacent residential roads, e.g. Chelsea and Russell Streets.

·   If the parking situation in the Linwood/Eastgate Study area were to change (e.g. if the Eastgate Mall RMA was implemented) it is recommended that a comprehensive parking study in this area be considered to address future parking issues.

Summary

5.11 The LTP 2018-2028 has no provision for the Linwood-Eastgate PT Hub upgrade project or indeed the other projects suggested in the Integrated Transport Study. This indicates that the majority of these possible projects are aspirational at this time, however, the study’s recommendations can be used to determine future transport projects in the Linwood-Eastgate area.

5.12 Nevertheless, as outlined above (see PT section) the Aldwins/Buckleys/Linwood intersection safety project has been completed and the remaining fund’s balance of $1.1m is on hold. Staff believe these funds could be utilised for the Buckleys Road Bus Passenger Bus Stop upgrade project including the proposed signalised pedestrian crossing.

5.13 There has been no public community and/or stakeholder consultation on the issues and ideas reviewed in the Linwood-Eastgate Hub Integrated Transport Study. However, if any of the suggestions reviewed in the study and outlined in this report were to be identified in a future LTP (2021 – 2031) there would be the appropriate level of public engagement.
