7.   Lichfield Street at Bus Interchange - Bus Stop and Small Passenger Service Vehicle Stand

 

Committee Comment

1.         This report was laid on the table at the Subcommittee’s last meeting on 5 September 2018 at which it heard deputations relating to this item from Paul McNoe on behalf of Red Bus Limited, Stewart Gibbon on behalf of Environment Canterbury, Lindsay Richards on behalf of Westmorland Residents Association, and Adam Fairburn on behalf of Blue Star Taxis (Christchurch) Society Limited.

2.         The Subcommittee considered the “Lichfield Street Zebra Crossing – Concept Stage Safety Audit” received since the report was laid on the table and circulated as a new attachment to the report under separate cover alongside the agenda for the current meeting. This was to fulfil the Subcommittee’s request for further information on the safety concern raised in the deputation of Adam Fairburn about the need for pedestrians to cross Lichfield Street when moving between the Bus Interchange and relocated taxi stand as proposed.

3.         The Subcommittee agreed to corrective changes to the Staff Recommendations that staff recommended at the meeting pertaining to resolution 7, and the new resolution 8.

4.         The Subcommittee added resolutions 10 and 11 to indicate that having the Bus Stop outside the Bus Interchange should not be the permanent solution to supporting the Westmorland bus route, which currently uses smaller ‘shuttle-type’ vehicles.

8.   Balfour Terrace - Parking Opportunity Assessment

 

Committee Comment

1.         This report arose from the Subcommittee’s request at its last meeting for it when considering the report on “Balfour Terrace - Short Term Parking near Childcare Centre”. The Subcommittee heard a deputation from James Stringer on behalf of Balfour Terrace Limited at that meeting, which had prompted the request for this report. The Subcommittee recalled that deputation and considered further correspondence from Mr Stringer received since that meeting, including his request that the parking at the eastern termination of the road considered, but not recommended by staff, be P15 and apply between 8-10am and 4-6pm.

2.         The Subcommittee in effect accepted the Staff Recommendations against installing all four of the car parks at the eastern termination of the road that would be created by adopting Option 2, essentially accepting staff’s safety concerns with Option 2.

3.         The Subcommittee, however, requested that staff investigate the installation of one of the car parks shown as part of Option 2, being the car park on the northern kerb side at the eastern termination of the road, in case this variation could avoid the concerns with Option 2 as a whole. The Subcommittee requested that staff report back to it on the results of the investigation.

 

Staff Recommendations

That the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Receive the report and adopt Option 1 (do nothing).

Should the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee adopt Option 2 (not recommended), the following resolutions apply:

2.         Approve under clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited on the part of Balfour Terrace marked with broken yellow lines as indicated on the attached drawing TG133405 Issue 1, dated 10/09/2018.

3.         Approve under clause 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that the part of Balfour Terrace as indicated in the attached drawing TG133405 Issue 1, dated 10/09/2018, is reserved as a parking place for any vehicle, subject to the following restriction: the maximum time for parking of any vehicle is 30 minutes.

4.         Approve that these resolutions take effect when the infrastructure that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

5.         Approve that any previous resolutions pertaining to traffic controls made pursuant to any bylaw to the extent that they are in conflict with the traffic controls described in this report are revoked.

 

Committee Resolved PRSC/2018/00025

Part C

That the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Requests that staff investigate the installation of one car park on the northern kerb side at the eastern termination of the road and report back to the Subcommittee.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Council staff have been contacted by business owners on the south side of Moorhouse Avenue, requesting time limited parking, to remove all day parking, and free up the kerbside for client parking.

5.2       This kerbside area is close to ARA and a school. Businesses say that students and others tend to park for the majority of the day. The businesses provided two main responses for the time limit- some preferred one-hour parking and some preferred two-hour parking.  Following feedback from the parking compliance team, businesses were advised that one-hour parking is better. This is due to less chance for motorists to change parking positions every 2 hours as they can do with P120, i.e. at tea breaks or lunch breaks.

5.3       Some businesses also reported that clients used off street parking to visit a neighbouring business.

5.4       In addition to the proposed P60, No Stopping is proposed between two entrances to a drive in /drive out hire business. Vehicles tend to be parked where they partially block access between the two entrances.

5.5       Ten businesses have been identified and contacted which front this section of Moorhouse Avenue.

5.6       Of the ten businesses contacted, there is agreement to change the south side unrestricted parking to P60.

6.   Option 1 - Install P60 Parking on Moorhouse Avenue (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       This involves changing all existing unrestricted parking on the south side of Moorhouse Avenue, to sixty minute (P60) parking, plus a small section of No Stopping, between two closely spaced vehicle crossings.

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

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       Affected businesses were advised of the recommended option, seeking their views and feedback. Ten businesses were consulted and their feedback is described in sections 5.5 and 5.6 of this report.

6.5       The Team Leader of Parking Compliance, supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - $1000 for the installation (signs, poles and road markings), plus $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report

6.8       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

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

Legal Implications

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

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

Risks and Mitigations

6.13    There are no identified risks associated with this proposed change.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

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

Parking Restrictions Subcommittee

31 October 2018

 

 

8.        Plymouth Lane - Parking and Stopping Restrictions

Reference:

18/1024939

Presenter(s):

Michael Thomson - Transport Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee to approve the installation of Parking and Stopping restrictions on Plymouth Lane in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to a request for loading /unloading facilities within the lane, and concerns raised about blocked access through the lane due to parked vehicles.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by comparing factors relating to this decision against the criteria set out in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

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

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Approves that any previous resolutions pertaining to parking or stopping restrictions made on any part of Plymouth Lane, from its intersection with Lichfield Street to its intersection with Cashel Street (City Mall) are revoked.

2.         Approves that pursuant to Clause 8 (1) (a) of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that the part of Plymouth Lane as indicated as Area A in the attached drawing TG133414 Issue 1 Attachment A, dated 04/10/2018, is reserved as Loading Zone for Goods Vehicles Only, and that this zone be restricted for a maximum period of 5 minutes of loading /unloading. This loading Zone is to be used by authorised vehicles that are servicing properties or businesses that have direct access to Plymouth Lane only.

3.         Approves that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on any part of Plymouth Lane, except for the P5 Loading Zone indicated as area A in the attached drawing TG133414 Issue 1 Attachment A, dated 04/10/2018.

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

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Install P5 Loading Zone and No Stopping restrictions (Preferred Option).

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Meets needs of current businesses.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Plymouth Lane is “fee simple” land under the ownership of Christchurch City Council. Prior to the earthquake sequence, and then following the rebuild of the Lichfield Car Parking Building, Plymouth lane has acted a public thoroughfare, from Lichfield Street to Cashel Street (City Mall).

5.2       The lane appears to be a public laneway of similar form to many other central city laneways, for which the land is defined as legal road.  This has led to motorists seizing the opportunity to use the lane for all day commuter parking. This obstructs access to the lane, decreases the amenity of the lane, and restricts viewing of the west wall mural.

5.3       At the time of writing this report, six out of the 7 business units adjacent to the lane have been leased, with four currently operating. There will be a mix of retail and hospitality uses. The only parking now recommended is a loading zone to assist these businesses.

5.4       Land at the back of the car park building was formally the site of an Orion sub-station. This land has been transferred to the Council and will serve as access to a development on the eastern side, which also fronts City Mall.

5.5       As a temporary measure, Council staff have erected signage advising no parking. This report seeks to formalise the parking management of the lane.

 

 


 

6.   Option 1 – Installation of a P5 loading Zone, with No Stopping restrictions in rest of Lane (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       This would involve the creation of a P5 Loading Zone on the eastern side of Plymouth Lane, just north of Lichfield Street, with the rest of the lane subject to No Stopping restrictions.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

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

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       Affected businesses were advised of the recommended option.  The recommendations are in response to the already established business proprietors.

6.5       The developer to the east, and all new Plymouth Lane business owners agree with the recommended changes. Members of the public have raised concerns to elected Council members and staff about the amenity issues of opportunist parking.

6.6       The Team Leader of Parking Compliance supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

4.   Key Points

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

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Change two P60 parking spaces to a P5 Loading zone (Preferred Option)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Meets needs of a new hotel

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes two P60 paid parking spaces

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A 1960’s built, multi -level building is situated on the west side of Manchester Street, just north of Lichfield Street and High Street. This building was designed by a renowned architect, the late Peter Beaven.  This building has remained vacant and derelict since the earthquake sequence.

5.2       This building is however, considered worthy of retention. As a result, the Council has allocated a Central City Heritage Grant, with the current owners wishing to redevelop the building as an Art hotel.

5.3       The building occupies 100% of the site. Accordingly, there is no opportunity to provide an off street loading zone. As with a recent report submitted to the Subcommittee, hotels benefit from the P5 Loading Zone by providing a drop off /pick up location for guests arriving by taxis, tour coaches, short term parking while guests check in and for goods vehicles servicing the hotel.

5.4       The proposed hotel is currently the only building on the triangular shaped street block, bounded by Manchester Street, Cashel Street and High Street. The land on the east side of Manchester Street is currently undeveloped, with land being identified in the Christchurch Central Recovery plan as greenspace within the East Frame.

5.5       The kerbside directly outside the proposed hotel therefore, does not have immediately adjacent land uses, which compete for kerbside car parking.

 

 


 

6.   Option 1 - Install P5 Loading Zone on Manchester Street (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       This would involve replacing two P60 paid parking spaces with a P5 Loading Zone on the west side of Manchester Street, just north of Lichfield Street.

Impact on Mana Whenua

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

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       As the developers are the only businesses within the street block and opposite, no further consultation occurred.

6.5       The Team Leader of Parking Compliance, supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

5.2       The Subcommittee considered a scheme which indicated that four car parks could be created along the eastern termination of Balfour Terrace.

5.3       The Subcommittee accepted the officer’s recommendation that, while these car parks could be created, that they should not be provided due to the safety concerns about the interaction of possible reversing trucks and children on the roadway-due to no footpath in this area.

5.4       The Subcommittee considered the possibility of one only car park at the road’s eastern termination, located on the northeast corner of the eastern termination of the roadway (Refer Attachment A).

5.5       Staff agreed that a car park at this location meant that children could access the parked car without having to get into a conflict zone with reversing vehicles. The assessment at that meeting has led to this report’s recommendation.

5.   Context/Background

5.1       On 11 December 2014, Council considered and approved all traffic controls and parking /stopping restrictions associated with three An Accessible City projects. This included the south side of Lichfield Street, between Colombo Street and Durham Street South.

5.2       Around this same time, an issue arose with parking outside Ballantynes Department Store on Colombo Street.  A number of standard size kerbside parks were reassigned as Mobility parks. This was due to a request from Ballantynes management, that many clients were elderly and had difficulty walking a longer distance from their parked vehicle to the store. While this was an ideal solution for those particular clients, disability groups complained that the parks were not meeting latest specifications in terms of dimensions and accessibility, for persons with a disability.

5.3       The outcome was the creation of complying mobility parks on Lichfield Street, as a last minute change to the design, and sometime after approvals by Council. In addition, other kerbside changes occurred due to the developing Justice Precinct.

5.4       Currently Council’s Parking Compliance team cannot enforce the current on-street restrictions. There is potential for some motorists to park all day, denying opportunities for short term parking and servicing.

5.5       The staff recommendations within this report seek to address the anomalies created by the changing roadside situation, so that the approved parking and stopping resolutions match the current on street layout.
