4.1       Lorraine Smith and Norm Withers - Waimairi Road Street Tree

             Mr Norm Withers addressed the Board on behalf of Mrs Lorraine Smith, requesting the removal of the Pin Oak outside her property at 326 Waimairi Road.

             The Pin Oak tree, which was transplanted from a group of trees near Burnside Park to replace a vandalised Liquid Amber tree,  is according to Mr Withers, now very large and causing damage to underground pipes and  the Smith’s property.  Concern was also raised regarding the removal of the leaves, nuts and the number of saplings coming from the tree.

             On behalf of the Smiths, Mr Withers asked that the Council arrange for a resource consent to have the Pin Oak tree removed and for the consent to be paid out of the Council’s operational budget.

 

 

The Board decided to:

1.              Request that staff investigate the possible removal of the Pin Oak tree outside number 326 Waimairi Road.

 

2.              Request that staff provide an information Memorandum regarding the process for dealing with mature trees planted in unsuitable places and/or causing property damage.

The Chairperson thanked Mrs Smith and Mr Withers for their presentation.  

 

Jamie Gough arrived at 4.41pm

5.   Deputations by Appointment

Part B

5.1

Matthew Glubb - Wooldridge Road Proposed No Stopping Restrictions and Flush Median

Matthew Glubb addressed the Board on behalf of the Glubb Family Trust in opposition to the proposed No Stopping Restrictions in Wooldridge Road. 

Mr Glubb asked that other options be considered before removing the on-street parking along Wooldridge Road. (Item 8 of these minutes refers)

The Chairperson thanked Mr Glubb for his deputation.

 

5.2

Bryn Somerville and Rebecca Wilson – Woodridge Road Proposed No Stopping Restrictions and Flush Median

Bryn Somerville and Rebecca Wilson addressed the Board on behalf of Tait Communications in support of the proposed No Stopping Restrictions in Wooldridge Road. 

Mr Somerville raised the safety concerns for employees exiting the Tait campus onto Wooldridge Road under the current road layout and supported the proposed removal of on-street parking to increase the sight lines and provide greater visibility when exiting onto Wooldrige Road. Mr Somerville also supported the proposed installation of a flush median. (Item 8 of these minutes refers)

Following questions from Board members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Somerville and Ms Wilson for their deputation.

5.3

Ross McFarlane - Wooldridge Road Proposed No Stopping Restrictions and Flush Median

Ross McFarlane, a property owner on Wooldridge Road, addressed the Board in support of the proposed No Stopping Restrictions in Wooldridge Road. 

Mr McFarlane supported the proposal to install no stopping restrictions and a flush median in Wooldridge Road.  Mr McFarlane considered that with traffic signals some years away, the proposals in the staff report were the safest option for Wooldridge Road users and businesses located in that area, especially as the intersection would become more congested.  (Item 8 of these minutes refers)

Following questions from Board members, the Chairperson thanked Mr McFarlane for his deputation.
