·   Provides better access to public transport to Westmorland residents to align with the 145 Westmorland bus route extension.

4.5       The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Reallocation of on-street parking presently available for residents and visitors.

·   Other real or perceived impacts related to bus stops, such as loss of privacy, loss of amenity, and noise.

·   Some stops not supported by adjacent property owners.


 

 

5.   Context/Background

Bus Route Extension: 145 Westmorland

5.1       Environment Canterbury is responsible for the operation of bus routes and Christchurch City Council is responsible for the location of bus stops along the routes. Bus stops are a form of parking restriction and the authority to approve bus stops locations is delegated to the Community Boards.

5.2       In early 2018, Environment Canterbury consulted on the possibility of removing several bus routes as part of their Long Term Plan, which included removing the 145 Westmorland to Eastgate bus route.

5.3       As a result of feedback received during the Long Term Plan process, Environment Canterbury agreed to retain the Westmorland part of the route, enlarge the loop at the Westmorland end to reach more properties, and extend it into the central city. Five new bus stops are required along the new route, to meet the spacing of bus stops 300 to 400 metres apart (accounting for elevation changes which reduce this distance) recommended in the Christchurch City Council Bus Stop Guidelines. The two existing bus stops on the smaller loop of Woodside Common will become redundant. The proposed bus stop locations and options are shown in Attachment H.

5.4       On 21 July 2018, Environment Canterbury and Christchurch City Council began public consultation on the extension of the bus route and bus stops. The consultation closed on 10 August 2018.

5.5       Christchurch City Council staff initiated a second round of consultation for alternative locations for the bus stops on 10 September 2018. This consultation closed on 28 September 2018.

5.6       Environment Canterbury intends to reduce the need for lengthier layovers or timing points on this route with tighter timetables, and to use the central city terminus and other existing timing points for timing purposes. As a result, buses will only need to stop at the proposed bus stops long enough to pick up or drop off passengers.  This means the bus stops will be unoccupied for the majority of time, minimising the impact to nearby residents.

5.7       Bus stops proposed are designed to the minimum standards recommended in the Christchurch City Council Bus Stop Guidelines.

6.   Option 1 – Install bus stops at locations A1, B1, C, D2 and E (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install bus stops at locations A1 (71 Ravensdale Rise), B1 (111 Ravensdale Rise), C (135R Ravensdale Rise), D2 (126 Penruddock Rise) and E (114 Penruddock Rise) as per Attachments A to E, and revoke the two redundant bus stops on Ravensdale Rise (Attachment F and G)Attachment H (page 2) indicates the location of the bus stops in Option 1.

Location A1: Bus stop outside 71 Ravensdale Rise (Attachment A)

6.2       The property at 71 Ravensdale Rise has a full height fence and the proposed bus stop is along the northwest corner of the property, shown in Figure 1. Attachment A shows an aerial view of this location. There is an existing streetlight directly above the proposed bus stop. Topography, catchment area, and distance between bus stops is similar for both locations A1 and A2.

Figure 1: Location A1, adjacent to 71 Ravensdale Rise

6.3       Objections were raised to this bus stop location during consultation, regarding the impact on privacy and loss of parking. Concerns raised during consultation include impact on privacy, pollution, noise, and risk of damage to property.

6.4       The proposed bus stop at location A1 is located adjacent to an existing full height fence which will mitigate the potential impact on privacy. As discussed in section 5.6, this bus stop is only intended to be used for pickup and drop off of passengers and buses will not layover. This differs from the current situation, which residents are familiar with, where buses are waiting at the bus stop for longer periods of time to keep on schedule. This change will mitigate impact on privacy, pollution and noise.

Location B1: Bus stop outside 111 Ravensdale Rise

6.5       The property at 111 Ravensdale Rise has a full height fence and the proposed bus stop is along the northwest edge of the property, shown in Figure 2. There is an existing streetlight on the opposite side of the road from the proposed bus stop, approximately 15 to 20 metres away.

Figure 2: Location B1, adjacent to 111 Ravensdale Rise

6.6       Objections were raised to this bus stop. Concerns raised include loss of parking in the immediate area, sight lines from the adjacent residential driveways, proximity of the bus stop to Cumbria Lane and effect on property prices.

6.7       The Christchurch City Council Parking Strategy prioritises parking for public transport on a public road over all other types of parking. All properties in this area have some off-street parking and there is a large supply of on-street parking in the area.

6.8       When pulling in or out of driveway, drivers must give way to all pedestrians on the footpath and all traffic on the road, including buses.  Certain sight lines for movements to and from the driveway will be restricted while the bus is stopped.  This is a temporary obstruction, lasting for a matter of seconds when the bus is stopped to allow passengers to board or alight the bus, which is why such configurations are common practice locally and nationally.

6.9       Concerns were also raised about the proximity of the bus stop to Cumbria Lane, and the possibility of vehicles crossing the centreline conflicting with traffic turning from Cumbria Lane onto Ravensdale Rise. Cumbria Lane is a private lane providing access to 11 properties. The location of the bus stop will not permanently nor temporarily restrict sight lines for traffic exiting Cumbria Lane. Ravensdale Rise has a carriageway approximately 11 metres in width at Location B, which is sufficient for two cars travelling in opposite directions to pass each other safely if cars and/or buses are stopped or parked on both sides of the street.

Location C (Attachment C)

6.10    This bus stop is adjacent to a council reserve, as shown in Figure 3, and is located where a bus driver cresting the hill has sufficient time to see and react to any passengers to stop, and a motorist has time to react to the presence of the bus.  The bus stop is directly opposite a streetlight to improve visibility of the bus stop and passengers waiting.

Figure 3: Location C, adjacent to Ravensdale Park

6.11    No objections were received to this bus stop during consultation.

Location D2 (Attachment D)

6.12    This bus stop serves the catchment area of Penruddock Rise including the surrounding Dove Grove, Francis Mill Grove and Penruddock Rise properties.

6.13    Objections were received to this bus stop location. Concerns raised include the impact on privacy.

6.14    As shown in Figure 4, the property at 126 Penruddock Rise does not currently have a formalised pedestrian or vehicle access off Penruddock Rise, and the building is not directly oriented towards Penruddock Rise (access is via Francis Mill Grove). There is a short fence along the property boundary, behind which is a covered wastewater access point and some planting. The property owner has indicated that a subdivision covenant related to the public wastewater line which runs through the property prevents construction of a full height fence for privacy.

Figure 4: Location D2, adjacent to 126 Penruddock Rise


 

Location E (Attachment E)

6.15    This bus stop location, shown in Figure 5, is located near Sedbergh Place and serves the surrounding residential catchment areas of Sedbergh Place, Rosthwaite Place and Penruddock Rise properties. Rosthwaite Place also provides a pedestrian link via steps to the western part of Woodside Common.

6.16    No objections were received during consultation.

7.   Option 2 – Install bus stops at location A2, B2, C, D1 and E

Option Description

7.1       Install bus stops at locations A2 (63 Ravensdale Rise), B2 (109 Ravensdale Rise), C (135R Ravensdale Rise), D1 (114 Penruddock Rise) and E (114 Penruddock Rise) as per the attached plans, and revoke the two redundant bus stops on Ravensdale Rise (Attachment F and G). Locations A2, B2 and D1 are not the locations that staff recommend installing the bus stops. Attachment H (page 3) indicates the location of the bus stops in Option 2.

Location A2: Bus stop outside 63 Ravensdale Rise (Attachment A)

7.2       This location, shown in Figure 6, is on the approach to the intersection with Woodside Common. The roadside adjacent has for some time been an ‘unofficial’ bus layover.

Figure 6: Location A2, adjacent to 63 Ravensdale Rise

7.3       The adjacent vacant site is to be developed in the near future, and the living area of the house is designed to face onto the street (for further details see the submission in Attachment J). There is an existing streetlight on the opposite side of the road, approximately 20 to 30 metres from the proposed bus stop. The illumination at this bus stop is likely to be reduced somewhat relative to location A1, but the street is lit to standard for a residential street. Topography, catchment area, and distance between bus stops is similar for both locations A1 and A2.

7.4       Objections were raised to this bus stop during consultation regarding the impact on privacy and loss of parking.

7.5       As discussed in section 5.6, this bus stop is only intended to be used for pickup and drop off of passengers and buses will not layover. This differs from the current situation, which residents are familiar with, where buses are waiting outside 63 Ravensdale Rise or at the nearby bus stop on Woodside Common for longer periods of time to keep on schedule. Environment Canterbury intends to have minimal layovers on this route, and to use existing layovers along the route to eliminate the need to layover in Westmorland. This change will mitigate impact on privacy, pollution and noise, however this may be mitigated to a lesser extent than A1 due to the current and future layout and location of houses and fences along Ravensdale Rise.

 

Location B2: Bus stop outside 109 Ravensdale Rise

7.6       The property at 109 Ravensdale Rise does not have any fencing, and the proposed bus stop is along the northwest edge of the property, shown in Figure 7. There is an existing streetlight near the rear of the bus stop, and the road is on a slightly greater slope relative to location B1.

Figure 7: Location B2, adjacent to 109 Ravensdale Rise

7.7       Objections were also received for this bus stop. Concerns raised included loss of parking in the immediate area, sight lines from the adjacent residential driveways, and proximity of the bus stop to Cumbria Lane.

7.8       Cumbria Lane is a private lane providing access to 11 properties. The location of the bus stop will not restrict sight lines for traffic exiting Cumbria Lane. Ravensdale Rise has a carriageway approximately 11 metres in width at Location B, which is sufficient for two cars travelling in opposite directions to pass each other safely if cars and/or buses are stopped or parked on both sides of the street.

7.9       This location may also have a greater impact on privacy to residents of 109 Ravensdale Rise compared to other locations as there is currently no fence along the property boundary.


 

Location C (Attachment C)

7.10    Refer to sections 6.10 and 6.11

Location D1 (Attachment D)

7.11    This bus stop serves the catchment area of Penruddock Rise including the surrounding Dove Grove, Francis Mill Grove and Penruddock Rise properties. Location D1 is near the side street of Dove Grove.

7.12    As shown in Figure 8, the proposed bus stop is located adjacent to a short fence and some planting. This may somewhat mitigate any potential intrusion on privacy.

Figure 8: Location D1, adjacent to 132 and 134 Penruddock Rise

7.13    Objections were received to this bus stop location. Concerns raised include the impact on privacy and loss of parking.

7.14    The property at 132 Penruddock Rise has a shorter, partially transparent fence and some ornamental planting, and both properties 132 and 134 have pedestrian and vehicle access to Penruddock Rise.


 

Location E (Attachment E)

7.15    Refer to sections 6.15 and 6.16

4.   Key Points

4.1       Neighbourhood Week has been extended for the whole summer. To reflect this change, the initiative has been rebranded as Neighbourhood Week/Let's Get Together this Summer. This year Neighbourhood Week/Let's Get Together this Summer is to be held from 27 October 2018 to 31 March 2019.  Applications for funding closed on 7 September 2018.

4.2       Local community groups, including residents' associations and neighbourhood support groups, have been sent information inviting them to apply for the Neighbourhood Week/Let's Get Together this Summer funding as allocated by the Board.

4.3       A matrix outlining the applications and staff recommendations is included (refer Attachment A) along with the Neighbourhood Week/Let's Get Together this Summer 2018 Guidelines (refer Attachment B) that accompany the application details.

4.4       By the closing date, 29 applications had been received. Two further applications were received after the closing date, and have been included in the matrix for the Board's consideration.  The applications were assessed to ensure that they met the guidelines for the Neighbourhood Week events, and staff are recommending an amount for allocation to each application.  In making the recommendations, staff have endeavoured to maintain consistency over the allocation recommendations according to the amounts applied for and the number of people estimated to be attending the events.

·    One application is not recommended as it does not meet the criteria for Neighbourhood Week/Let's Get Together this Summer.

·    One application to hold an event in a restaurant is not recommended due to an element of exclusivity when an event is for invited people rather than an open invitation. Previous applications for meals in restaurants have been declined.

·    Two applications have been received for the same location. Only one event has been recommended due its level of inclusiveness.

·    A maximum of $250 per event was applied to all eligible applicants for up to two events.

4.5       Organisers of events that are scheduled to take place in a public place situated within an alcohol ban area, will be notified of the ban requirements.

4.6       At its meeting on 28 August 2018, the Board allocated $1,500 for Neighbourhood Week/Let's Get Together this Summer events for 2018. Unallocated funds from the Neighbourhood Week 2017 Fund have been reallocated into the 2018-2019 Discretionary Response Fund. The total amount requested of $18,390 is more than the applications made in previous years.

4.7       At the time of writing, the balance of the 2018/19 Discretionary Response Fund is as below.
