7.        Hornby Library, Customer Services, and South West Leisure Centre - Reserve Act Processes

Reference:

19/22484

Presenter:

Peter MacGibbon, Project Manager

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to request that the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board (acting under delegation from the Council) approve the initiation of the Reserves Act processes to: 

a. Change the classification of part of Kyle Park from Recreation Reserve to Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve; and 

b. Amend the Kyle Park Management Plan 1993;

to accommodate the proposed Hornby Library, Customer Services, and South West Leisure Centre.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to the Christchurch City Council resolution CNCL/2018/00323 on 13 December 2018 approving Kyle Park (‘the Park’) as the preferred location for the proposed Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre.

1.3       This report provides for the initiation of the processes required by the Reserves Act 1977 to allow the full facility to be sited on the Park.  The decisions on the proposed changes are made following public notification and the hearing of any objections.

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 assessing potential outcomes from options provided within the Council's Significance and Engagement assessment worksheet.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment and meet the statutory (Reserves Act) requirements.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board, acting under the delegated authority of the Christchurch City Council, resolves as follows:

1.         To commence the process under section 24(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977 to change the classification of part of Kyle Park, being part of Lot 1 DP78681 as shown outlined in yellow and marked "A" on Attachment A to the staff report from which this resolution emanates, from 'Recreation Reserve' to 'Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve', and to publicly notify the proposed change in accordance with section 24(2) of the Reserves Act 1977.

2.         To approve the draft non-comprehensive review of the Kyle Park Management Plan in the form attached to the staff report from which this resolution comes, and; 

3.         To not follow the procedures in section 41(5) and section 41(6) of the Reserves Act 1977; and

4.         To approve the release of the draft changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan for public consultation for a period of not less than one month.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       The Council has approved Kyle Park as the preferred location for the proposed co-located Hornby Library, Customer Services, and South West Leisure Centre.

4.2       The proposed location within Kyle Park for the facility is at the eastern end adjacent to Waterloo and Smarts Roads. 

4.3       Some of the facilities proposed within the building do not comply with the requirements for a Recreation Reserve and/or the Kyle Park Management Plan.

4.4       A change in the reserve classification for part of the park is required to allow the non-complying facilities, and hence the whole facility, to be sited there.  It is proposed that the reserve classification be changed for 1.52 hectares of the park to cover both the complying and non-complying facilities.

4.5       Changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan 1993 are required for the co-located facility to be sited on the park.

4.6       It is proposed to run the two required processes for the changes in 4.4 and 4.5 above at the same time by combining the consultation process.

4.7       A Hearings Panel will hear and determine the submissions/objections and make a recommendation on the proposed changes to this Community Board.

 

5.   Context/Background

Context

5.1       At its meeting on 24 August 2017, the Council approved a combined ‘co-located’ configuration for the proposed facility after public consultation in 2017.

5.2       At its meeting on 13 December 2018, the Council resolved (CNCL/2018/00323) to: 

1.      Approve Kyle Park (Option 1) as the preferred location for the new Hornby Library, Customer Services, and the South West Leisure Centre.

2.      Note its previous resolution, CNCL/2017/00213 (24 August 2017) approving a co-located configuration for the facility.

3.      Note that the costs to resolve landfill issues at the project site on Kyle Park will be covered by the existing project budget.

4.      Note the proposed use of Kyle Park is inconsistent with the current reserve classification and the Kyle Park Management Plan 1993; and in order to be implemented, will first require a partial change in reserve classification to (Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve) and a change to the Management Plan.

5.      Note the proposed use of Kyle Park is inconsistent with the District Plan zoning of Open Space Community Parks; and in order to be implemented, will first require Resource Consent.

5.3       The proposed development and use of the Park is inconsistent with the current reserve classification and the Kyle Park Management Plan 1993.  A change in reserve classification for part of the Park, and changes to the Management Plan, are required for the facility to be built on Kyle Park.

5.4       The Council has delegated its powers under sections 24, 24A and 41 of the Reserves Act to change reserve classifications and to change reserve management plans to Community Boards, with the exception of the hearing and determining of submissions/objections.  The Council delegated the hearing and determining of submissions/objections to the Hearings Panels. The Hearings Panel will make a recommendation to the Community Board once it hears and determines the submissions and objections.

The Site

5.5       Kyle Park comprises two land parcels.  The larger parcel was purchased by the Council in 1968 and is classified as Recreation Reserve, subject to the Reserves Act 1977.  The smaller land parcel in the central southern portion of the Park was purchased as reserve by the former Paparua County Council.  The park’s details are:

 

 

Larger Land Parcel

Smaller Land Parcel

Address 

197 Waterloo Road, Hornby

197 Waterloo Road, Hornby

Legal Description

Lot 1 DP78681

Lot 2 DP34558

Title 

CB45A/841

CB14A/1326

Legal Area

7.0429 hectares

1.6590 hectares

Total Legal Park Area

8.7019 hectares

 

5.6       The legal description and legal area shown above for the larger land parcel differ from those shown in the 1993 Management Plan but are consistent with the current title.

5.7       Kyle Park is managed and maintained as a community park by the Council and used for some club-based and school sports, as well as for public informal recreational activities.

5.8       There is currently no formal sports use of the park area under consideration as it is not of suitable quality for formal sport.

5.9       In 1884, a quarry was established on the site by Samuel Smart and Sons.  In 1968, seven hectares of land was purchased by the Paparua County Council for use as a rubbish tip (the larger land parcel).  Another 1.7 hectares of adjacent land was purchased by the Council in 1974 (the smaller land parcel).  Rubbish dumping generally stopped in the 1970’s with minor dumping occurring until 1981 when the site was contoured and capped.  In 2001, the larger land parcel was declared by the Council as Recreation Reserve.

5.10    The eastern end of the park is sunken down and housed a hockey field as early as 1973.  Adjacent to this toward the centre of the park is a cricket oval that was developed in 1989.  The railway underpass linking Kyle Park with Denton Park was constructed circa 1993/94.

5.11    The park is named after a Paparua County Council Councillor Colin W A Kyle, who was chair of the Reserves and Recreation Committee for many years.

5.12    Attachment A shows the part of the park proposed to have a change in reserve classification, and to be addressed in changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan outlined in yellow.  The part of the park affected is the larger land parcel (CB45A/841).

Proposed Development

5.13    The proposed development includes the construction of a community facility incorporating a library, service centre, meeting rooms, swimming pools, other recreational facilities, and associated support spaces.  The exact makeup of the facilities will be informed through the concept design process in consultation with the Community Board and community groups.  The Council will approve the final scope of the facilities.

5.14    The proposed location within Kyle Park for the facility is at the eastern end adjacent to Waterloo and Smarts Roads.  This location will avoid the stormwater facilities and the BMX track and facilities already on the park.  The existing cricket oval would be retained but may require a slight shift westward.  The sunken area at the east end of the park would be utilised to minimise the extent of landfill material disturbed during construction.

5.15    It is anticipated that the proposed development will result in a high degree of inter-connectedness and synergy of use between the two reserve areas (the Recreation Reserve and the Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve), including, for example, around car parking, connected pathways and facilities developed and used. 

5.16    The proposed facility is expected to increase awareness of the Park and further encourage its use, increase informal surveillance of the area and the safety of park users, and enhance the capping of the contaminated material in the landfill.  It would complement the activities of the BMX Club, currently the main formal user of the park.

Combined Consultation Processes 

5.17    There are two separate statutory public consultation processes for the proposed change in reserve classification for part of the Park and the proposed changes to the Management Plan.  Council staff suggest that these be run concurrently and for the same duration.  The public will be requested to identify in their submissions or objections which consultation matter they are submitting on or objecting to.

5.18    Public notification is required, whereby the public are able to make written submissions to the proposed changes.  The function to consider objections has been delegated to the Council Hearings Panels.  The Hearings Panel will then make a recommendation to the Community Board for a decision on whether or not to proceed with the proposed changes. 

5.19    If the decision is made to proceed, a formal application will then need to be made to the Council's Chief Executive (acting in her capacity as delegate of the Minister of Conservation) for the Minister's approval of the proposed change of classification and the proposed changes to the Management Plan. 

5.20    Council staff advice is that the public consultation in this case is subject to the following parameters: 

•       It relates only to the issues covered by the purpose of the Reserves Act 1977.

•       It relates only to the Reserves Act processes applying to the proposed change in reserve classification of part of the Park and the proposed changes to the Management Plan.  The changes to the Management Plan are limited to those that are relevant to, and affected by, the proposed development.  The proposed changes are shown as tracked changes in the proposed draft Management Plan (refer Attachment B). 

•       It does not involve any process under any other legislation other than the Reserves Act, nor does it provide an opportunity to submit on parts of the draft Management Plan that have not been highlighted with tracked changes, nor on aspects/parts of the Park that are not indicated as being subject to change. 

•       There is no consideration of, nor consultation on, the proposed development.  No submissions will be sought or received on this.  This report and attachments only refer to the proposed development whereby it affects the Park or where it is necessary to explain the reasons for the proposed part change in reserve classification or proposed changes to the Management Plan.

5.21    Council staff propose that the combined consultation be publicly notified on 2 March 2019, with it to conclude in April 2018, or to be run for an alternative period being no less than one calendar month in duration.

Proposed Partial Change in Reserve Classification 

5.22    The current reserve classification of Recreation Reserve does not provide for all of the uses in the proposed facilities.  The swimming pools, recreational facilities, car parking, and landscaping are consistent with the current Recreational Reserve classification.  The library, service centre, and associated support spaces are not consistent with the Recreation Reserve classification.  A change in reserve classification for part of the Park only is therefore necessary to permit the co-located proposed development being placed on the park. 

5.23    The footprint area of the part of the proposed facility that is not consistent with the current Recreational Reserve classification is approximately 0.3 hectares.  This represents four per cent of the total area of Kyle Park. 

5.24    It is proposed to change the classification of an area of the park that would include the whole of the proposed facility including car parking and landscaping.  This will avoid strange shaped areas of different classifications making management of the park easier.  It will give the designers flexibility to minimise the impact of the facility on existing trees, integrate the facility into the park, and minimise the impact from contamination issues by using the sunken area of the park effectively.

5.25    The area proposed to be reclassified is therefore 1.52 hectares as shown outlined in yellow on Attachment A.  This represents 17.5 per cent of the total area of Kyle Park and 9.5 per cent of the combined Kyle Park and Denton Park area. 

Proposed Changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan

5.26    The current Kyle Park Management Plan was approved in 1993.  Although it is dated, the plan is still operative.  A full review of this individual plan is not of high priority but it will be reviewed in a multi-park management plan proposed to begin within two years.

5.27    The changes proposed to the current Management Plan to allow the full development to proceed are detailed as tracked changes in the proposed Kyle Park Management Plan included in Attachment B.

5.28    To change the Management Plan, the process under section 41 of the Reserves Act needs to be followed.  Only limited parts of the Management Plan are proposed to be changed.  Council staff therefore view the changes as a non-comprehensive review of the Management Plan.

5.29    The Reserves Act does not specify procedures for undertaking a non-comprehensive review of a management plan.  The processes outlined in sections 41(5) and 41(6) of the Reserves Act for creating a totally new plan could be used, however they are overly onerous for the non-comprehensive review proposed. 

5.30    Council staff recommend a public consultation process open to written submissions for a period of not less than one month.  Submissions would be reviewed and oral submissions heard by a Council Hearings Panel.  The Hearings Panel would then make a recommendation on the two proposed changes to this Community Board.  This would also facilitate the communities’ desire for the facility to be progressed expediently.

6.   Option 1 - Commence the process for changing the classification of part of the reserve and approve public consultation on draft changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       This option is to initiate the Reserves Act process for a change of reserve classification to part of Kyle Park (Attachment A) from Recreation Reserve to Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve, and approve the release of draft changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan (Attachment B) for public consultation.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is high consistent with section 2 of this report.

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are necessary via standard Reserves Act notification processes.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decisions 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       Kyle Park has received good support as the location for the Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre through the public consultation in early 2017 and through the deputations made to the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting on 5 December 2018.  The impact on sports clubs is minimal with the cricket oval to remain and small field in the sunken area not used for formal sport.  The views of local residents and the wider public on the current issues in question, are to be sought and considered via standard Reserves Act notification requirements.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - Staff time and consultation costs

6.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Not applicable

6.9       Funding source - Existing budgets

Legal Implications

6.10    The proposed change in classification of part of the reserve and the proposed changes to the Management Plan are processes required by the Reserves Act to permit the proposed public community/recreation facility development for the site.

6.11    This report has been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

Risks and Mitigations  

6.12    This option is consistent with the Reserves Act.


 

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies  - Subject to public notification and statutory processes

6.14    Implementation timeframe - Approximately five months

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·    Meeting the Council’s resolution of 13 December 2018 approving Kyle Park as the preferred location for the proposed facility.

·    Allowing the public to submit and comment on the proposed changes.

·    All land areas remain as reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977, and under Council control and management. 

·    Ensuring the management plan is appropriately updated to reflect the Council’s decisions. 

·    Compliance with the mandatory process under the Reserves Act 1977 needed to implement the Councils resolution.

 

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·    The possibility that part of the Recreation Reserve is removed albeit changed to Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve.

·    The possible loss of some park open space.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing – Do not commence the process for changing the classification of part of the reserve and do not approve public consultation on draft changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan

Option Description

7.1       This do nothing option maintains the status quo of the Park.  It does not initiate the Reserves Act process for a change of reserve classification to part of Kyle Park (Attachment A) from Recreation Reserve to Local Purpose (Community Buildings) Reserve, and does not approve the release of draft changes to the Kyle Park Management Plan (Attachment B) for public consultation.

7.2       This option would not allow those proposed facilities that are inconsistent with the Recreation Reserve classification or the Kyle Park Management Plan from being placed on the park.  This would trigger further site selection investigations to find a suitable site for the whole co-located facility.

Significance

7.3       The level of significance of this option is high consistent with section 2 of this report

7.4       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are necessary via standard Reserves Act notification processes.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.5       This option does not involve a significant decisions 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

7.6       Kyle Park has received good support as the location for the Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre through the public consultation in early 2017 and through the deputations made to the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board meeting on 5 December 2018.   

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.7       This option is inconsistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies as it would not allow the construction of the Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre within the funding timing given in the Council’s Long Term Plan.

Financial Implications

7.8       Cost of Implementation - Staff time and consultation costs for the ongoing site search

7.9       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Not applicable

7.10    Funding source - Existing budgets although these may need revision in future financial years

Legal Implications

7.11    The proposed change in classification of part of the reserve and the proposed changes to the Management Plan are legal processes under the Reserves Act to permit the proposed public community/recreation facility development for the site being consistent with the underlying reserve classification and the Kyle Park Management Plan.

7.12    This report has been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit.

Risks and Mitigations  

Risks and Mitigations

7.13    There is a risk that if the partial reserve reclassification or the management plan changes are not undertaken, delays to the project could occur as further investigation would be required to find a viable site for the Hornby Library, Customer Services and South West Leisure Centre.  It may, because of the delays, result in higher construction costs due to inflation, and subsequently a lower scope able to be delivered for the budget.

Implementation

7.14    Implementation dependencies - Nil for this specific decision

7.15    Implementation timeframe – Nil for this specific decision but ongoing for the site search

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   The whole of Kyle Park being retained as Recreation Reserve and open space.

7.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Preventing the mandatory process needed to implement the Council’s 13 December 2018 resolution confirming Kyle Park as the preferred location for the facility.

·   A delay in the project as the search continued for a suitable site for the whole co-located facility.

·   An inflationary loss in the budget as the costs of construction increase over time.

·   Frustration in the community at the ongoing site search.

5.3.2   The Committee heard that the Hall, which at present is not deemed a heritage building, does potentially contain heritage values that could meet the threshold of being scheduled under the District Plan. 

5.3.3   The Committee requested to be provided with information from staff on the Yaldhurst Memorial Hall. The staff memorandum is to provide a ballpark figure for a potential repair of the Hall and also cover whether any Central Government funding is available to assist with potential repairs.

5.4       Infrastructure Projects - Update

5.4.1   For the Board’s information, a summary is provided (refer Attachment B) on the status of various infrastructure projects currently underway in the Board’s area.

Judging for this year’s Community Pride Garden Awards took place from 19 January to 10 February 2019.

The Christchurch Beautifying Association and Board member Debbie Mora selected award-winning gardens taking into account, effort, overall tidiness and impact of the garden on the street.

Certificates will be presented on Monday 18 March 2019 at a Community Board hosted function which is expected to have a larger attendance than similar events held in recent years.

6.2       Community Service and Youth Service Awards 2019

Nominations for the Community Service and Youth Service Awards 2019 open on Friday 15 March and close on Friday 12 April 2019.

6.4       Templeton Community – Quarry Submission

Staff have provided a further submission writing session for the Templeton community in preparation for submitting on the Fulton Hogan resource consent application for the proposed Roydon Quarry. 

The generic sessions have been based on providing advice on how to put together an individual submission. 

Following Fulton Hogan's lodgement of its application in November 2018, Environment Canterbury and Selwyn District Council made a request for further information. 

Fulton Hogan subsequently requested an extension to the 31 January 2019 deadline for information until 28 February 2019.  Once the information supplied is deemed acceptable to the consent authorities, it is then expected that the application will be publically notified.

6.5       Riccarton Community - Fitness Opportunities

The Riccarton Community Boot Camp sessions that New Zealand Institute of Sport have been running for the Riccarton community are being extended in 2019.  Since 2014, the Institute has been running a free boot camp every Tuesday afternoon.  Starting in February 2019, a new class will be run every second Saturday morning. 

Additionally, Sport Canterbury is running an exercise class for refugee and migrant women at the Riccarton Baptist Church.

 

6.6       Events

6.6.1   Culture Galore

Weather permitting, the seventeenth Culture Galore event will be held at Ray Blank Park on Saturday 23 February 2019 with over 6,000 people expected to attend.

The event has representation from thirty different countries, with 23 stage performances and 65 food and information stalls and lots of activities to entertain the participants. 

6.6.2   Hello Hornby

After last year's success, Hello Hornby will again take place at Wycola Park on 9 March 2019 from 12 to 3pm.

Organized by a local committee which brings together over ten different organisations from the greater Hornby area, the event hopes to attract over 2,000 people and showcase all that Hornby has to offer.

6.6.3   Hansons Reserve

The community event that Life Church and La Vida Youth Trust runs at the Hansons Reserve for the Upper Riccarton community, will take place on Saturday 2 March 2019. 

Traditionally held in November/December, the new timing looks to take advantage of the warmer weather.

6.6.4   Connect 2019

Now in its fourth year, Connect 2019 will be held on Sunday 10 March 2019, from 4pm to 6pm at Harrington Park. The community gathering aims to connect new people to the area and welcome them to the Riccarton area.

With a free BBQ and a few fun activities, the event will provide an opportunity for local people in the community to get to know one another. 

7.   Parks, Sports and Recreation – February 2019 Update

 

7.1       Summer sports turf maintenance - ongoing

The Meteorological Office has predicted warm to hot temperatures ranging from high teens through to low thirties, with minimal rainfall. This should have an impact on the higher than usual growth rate that has occurred in the last few months and we expect to see a reduction in growth region wide.

NOTE

Due to higher than usual growth rates, the Council has increased the mowing schedule with an extra round of mowing in the months of January and February 2019.

7.2       Picton Avenue Reserve

This reserve is in the process of being placed in contract as an ornamental garden. This raises the maintenance levels of service and will enable the contractors to considerably raise the standard of this area of green space.

7.3       Caulfield, Greenaway and John Annan Reserves

All these reserves have had an All Parks clean up in the last two weeks, concentrating on garden beds and problem areas that have been identified through customer tickets. The state of these areas has dramatically improved. Ground plant cover has also been removed as it was creating ongoing issues with weeds and will be replaced with new plantings in the near future.

 

 

 


 

 


7.4       Kyle Park

The area that has been fenced off due to possible asbestos contamination is now under a regular maintenance contract with Grounds and Services Ltd. This will continue for the foreseeable future and has been very successful in controlling the grass growth behind the fencing.

7.5       Yaldhurst Domain

Parks are aware of the gorse issues at the Domain and will be attending to its removal.

7.6       Westmorland East Valley Reserve

From the concerns expressed regarding fire risk in this reserve, a major operation has been undertaken to reduce the growth that has occurred due to some areas not being in contract. Once work has been completed, the area will be mapped, which will include all plantings and the missed areas placed into a maintenance contract.
