8.       185 Peterborough Street, Central Christchurch - Proposed P60 Restrictions

Reference:

19/57845

Presenter(s):

Barry Hayes – Traffic Engineer, Traffic Operations Team

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the installation of P60 restrictions on Peterborough Street in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report was staff generated in response to a request from a local business who requested more parking opportunities for their visitors and clients.

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 Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approve:

1.        That pursuant to section 591 of the Local Government Act 1974 and Part 1 section 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw, approve that the part of Peterborough Street, as indicated in the attached drawing TG133713 Issue 1, dated 4/2/2019, forming part of the resolution is specified as a parking place for any vehicles and be restricted to maximum period of 60 minutes between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

2.        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.

3.        That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 - Provide P60 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:

·   Increases opportunities for short stay parking, visitors, for customers and couriers

·   Improves turnover of parking spaces throughout the day

·   Benefits multiple businesses due to shared use

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces all day parking to other locations

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Council staff were approached by a business based at 185 Peterborough Street known as the New Zealand Aids Foundation (NZAF).  This property does have a small on-site car park, with provision for 2-3 vehicles though these are shared with other business owners and residents who are close to this address. The NZAF referred to substantial difficulties each day that are experienced by their visitors and clients and requested some short stay parking opportunities.

5.2      Staff investigated the site and local parking activity. This location is situated approximately half way between Manchester Street and Madras Street. The adjacent land uses are primarily residential and business related.  Unrestricted parking is available on both sides, with the south side comprising right angled parking, whereas the north side consists of parallel parking.

5.3      The kerbside area near 185 consist of a road narrowing, which functions as traffic calming and includes some no stopping restrictions. Consequently parking is not feasible immediately outside 185. However, immediately to the east, there is a group of businesses which have four parallel parks along the frontage. There is an off-street car park available to the rear with provision for approximately 25 spaces, though this is privately operated with a gate. Consequently this parking location is unavailable to the NZAF.

5.4      It is evident from several site visits at different times of the day that parking demands are consistently intensive.  It is expected that most of the on-street spaces are used to park all day, probably by commuters who walk into the central city. Staff consider that new P60 restrictions would benefit visitors and customers to multiple businesses in this area.

5.5      Staff discussed the preferred period of operation with NZAF. A Monday to Friday restriction for the usual working day was considered appropriate. This would enable residents and their visitors to park for longer overnight and weekends if required.

5.6      Consequently the proposal is considered to be beneficial to local business activity in this area.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install P60 Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Provide P60 restrictions on Peterborough Street in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Letters of consultation with a site plan were issued to all tenants and property owners of 183-202 Peterborough Street and central city business association. 

6.5      Two responses were received of which both supported the proposal.

6.6      The Team Leader of Parking Compliance was also consulted and indicated his supports for this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

6.8      Within the Parking Strategy for The Garden City, the kerb space parking priority for on-street parking in Policy 6G (Business Areas) states that short-stay private vehicle parking for businesses has a priority greater than that of commuter parking. This proposal is consent with this policy.

Financial Implications

6.9      Cost of Implementation - $400 to provide road markings and signs plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.11    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.12    Part 1, clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.13    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.14    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.15    Some parking displacement of all day parking is likely, though since this on the edge of the central city these risks are in line with those expected to arise due to effects of the suburban parking strategy near the central city. 

Implementation

6.16    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.17    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.18    The advantages of this option include:

·   Increases opportunities for short stay parking, for visitors, customers and couriers

·   Improves turnover of parking spaces throughout the day

·   Benefits multiple businesses due to shared use

6.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces all day parking to other locations

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1      Retain unrestricted parking.

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 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      This option is inconsistent with the request to increase short stay parking opportunities at this location.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6      Cost of Implementation - Not applicable.

7.7      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Not applicable.

7.8      Funding source - Not applicable.

Legal Implications

7.9      Not applicable.

Risks and Mitigations

7.10    If the restrictions are not installed there is a substantial risk that the local business will continue to have limited opportunities for visitors, clients and customers to park, which affect their business performance.

Implementation

7.11    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable.

7.12    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.13    The advantages of this option include:

·   Retains four unrestricted parking spaces 

7.14    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Does not support the concerns of the local businesses

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 - Provide 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:

·   Increases the efficiency of use of the P30 parking area.

·   Benefits the adjacent business.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces some short stay P30 parking to other locations.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Council staff met with a local business operator who referred to the difficulties for loading and delivery operations in this section of Cass Street throughout the working day.

5.2      Staff investigated the site and the local parking activity. Cass Street is situated between Colombo Street and Orbell Street. This particular section is immediately east of the Durham Street overbridge.  There are light industrial premises throughout this area.

5.3      This section of the street consists of a continuous row of unrestricted right angled parking on the north side. P30 restrictions are in effect on the south side. The unrestricted parking is consistently in use during the working day between Monday and Friday. The P30 parking is used sporadically and is used by cars and commercial vehicles.  

5.4      Site observations indicated that the P30 spaces were typically 30-50% occupied at different times of day. Whilst this provides some space for loading operations, the parked vehicles were randomly located and presented difficulties for longer commercial vehicles to manoeuvre parallel to the kerb. On one occasion staff noticed a truck double parked, despite short gaps being available in the P30 section.

5.5      Staff agree with the business operator’s concerns and recommend a revision to the existing restrictions. This consists of converting approximately one third of the existing P30 area to a P5 loading zone, which would be close to where inward goods would be received by the business. This location is also close to the adjacent business, so is expected to also benefit their operations.

5.6      Consequently the proposal is considered to be beneficial to local business activity in this area.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install P5 Loading Zone (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Provide a P5 Loading Zone and reduce the P30 restrictions on Cass Street in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Letters of consultation with a site plan were issued to all tenants and property owners at the nearest 10 properties on Cass Street and Sandyford Street which backs onto Cass Street. The Sydenham Business Association was also contacted. 

6.5      Only one response was received which supported the proposal.

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

6.8      Cost of Implementation - $400 to provide road markings and signs plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.10    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.11    Part 1, clauses 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.12    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.13    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.14    The proposal could result in P30 demands being displaced elsewhere. However, based on the site observations staff are satisfied the reduced P30 parking bay will meet the short stay parking demands.

Implementation

6.15    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.16    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.17    The advantages of this option include:

·   Increases opportunities for safe loading and delivery operations.

·   Increases the efficiency of use of the P30 parking area.

·   Benefits the adjacent business

6.18    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces some P30 parking to other locations.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1      Retain the current extent of P30 parking restrictions.

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 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      This option is inconsistent with the request to improve loading operations at this location.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6      Cost of Implementation - Not applicable.

7.7      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Not applicable.

7.8      Funding source - Not applicable.

Legal Implications

7.9      Not applicable.

Risks and Mitigations

7.10    If the restrictions are not installed there is a substantial risk that the local business will continue to have limited opportunities for safe loading operations, which affect their business performance.

Implementation

7.11    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable.

7.12    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.13    The advantages of this option include:

·   Retain the current extent of P30 restrictions

10.    173 Waltham Road, Sydenham - Proposed P60 Restrictions

Reference:

19/589

Presenter(s):

Barry Hayes – Traffic Engineer, Traffic Operations Team

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to   approve the installation of P60 restrictions on Waltham Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report was staff generated in response to a local business who requested more parking opportunities for customers and couriers.

1.3      These measures have been requested to provide more turnover of parking spaces, to meet the requirements of several businesses in the area.

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 Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approve:

1.        That pursuant to section 591 of the Local Government Act 1974 and Part 1 section 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw, approve that the part of Waltham Road, as indicated in the attached drawing TG133490 Issue 1, dated 20/11/2018, forming part of the resolution is specified as a parking place for any vehicles and be restricted to maximum period of 60 minutes between the hours of 8.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

2.        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.

3.        That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 - Provide P60 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:

·   Increases opportunities for short stay parking, for customers and couriers

·   Improves turnover of parking spaces throughout the day

·   Benefits multiple businesses in the area

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces all day parking to other locations

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Council staff received a request from the café business situated near this location, who referred to parking demands being high in the area and that short stay opportunities were very limited. 

5.2      Staff investigated the site twice and have driven passed on many occasions. This section of Waltham Road is median divided and has a parking shoulder on both sides and lacks any formal restrictions along this section.  Besides the café, there are several other businesses and a beauty salon near to this location. Some on-site parking is available, although is mainly occupied and used by staff at the other businesses. The on-site layout is quite tight for manoeuvring and not ideal for customers or visitors to use.

5.3      The café often attracts pass-by customers who would appear to prefer to park on Waltham Road, to minimise their delay returning into the main traffic stream. The café owner indicated that many commuter drivers who park here walk elsewhere and are assumed to work in a different part of town. The high parking demands were only reported as an issue Monday to Friday.

5.4      Staff agree with the café business operator’s concerns.  Initially a P30 restriction was considered appropriate though further to consultation was changed to a P60 restriction.

5.5      Consequently the proposal is considered to be beneficial to local business activity in this area.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install P60 Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Provide P60 restrictions on Waltham Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Letters of consultation with a site plan were issued to the Sydenham Business Association and tenants and property owners of the 10 nearest properties on Waltham Road. 

6.5      Six responses were received of which five supported the proposal, though requested an amendment to P60.  One of the supporters is the owner of 1-171, 2-171, 173A, 173D as well as 175 Waltham Road.

6.6      One objection was received by a resident who works shifts and often leaves his vehicle on-street during the working day.

6.7      Consequently, staff have changed the proposal to P60 and consider that it is generally supported.

6.8      The Team Leader of Parking Compliance supports this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

6.10    Within the Parking Strategy for The Garden City, the kerb space parking priority for on-street parking in Policy 6G (Business Areas) states that short-stay private vehicle parking for businesses has a priority greater than that of commuter parking. This proposal is consent with this policy.

Financial Implications

6.11    Cost of Implementation - $300 to provide road markings and signs plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.13    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.14    Part 1, clauses 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.15    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.16    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.17    No risks identified. 

Implementation

6.18    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.19    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.20    The advantages of this option include:

·   Increases opportunities for short stay parking, for customers and couriers

·   Improves turnover of parking spaces throughout the day

·   Benefits multiple businesses due to shared use

6.21    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces all day parking to other locations

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1      Retain the unrestricted parking.

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 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      This option is inconsistent with the request to increase short stay parking opportunities at this location.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6      Cost of Implementation - Not applicable.

7.7      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Not applicable.

11.    Ferry Road near Hart Street, Woolston - Proposed P10 Restrictions

Reference:

Presenter(s):

Barry Hayes – Traffic Engineer, Traffic Operations Team

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the installation of P10 restrictions on Ferry Road near Hart Street in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report was staff generated in response to a request from a local business who requested more parking opportunities for customers.

1.3      These measures have been requested to provide more turnover of parking spaces, to meet the requirements of local businesses in the area.

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.

3.        That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 - Provide P10 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:

·   Increases opportunities for short stay parking, for customers and couriers.

·   Improves turnover of parking spaces throughout the day.

·   Benefits multiple businesses due to shared use.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces all day parking to other locations.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Council staff met with a local business operator, who referred to the lack of short stay opportunities in the local area.  The business operator and the adjacent business significantly depend on pass-by customers who prefer to park along Ferry Road rather than turn off onto Hart Street and have to turn around.

5.2      Staff investigated the site and local parking activity. The business is located between Hart Street and Ensors Road which has a single traffic and cycle lane in both directions. 

5.3      Currently the three spaces under consideration on the south side are unrestricted for on-street parking and are occupied for most of the working day, probably by staff based at the nearby businesses.  As this is located close to the signalised Ensors Street intersection and the uncontrolled Hart Street intersection, the remaining sections have extensive lengths of no stopping restrictions which restrict alternative opportunities to park on the south side of Ferry Road.

5.4      On the opposite (north) side of Ferry Road, the parking spaces have a P60 restriction.

5.5      Staff agree with the business operator’s concerns.  Consequently a P10 restriction was agreed to be appropriate and ‘at any time’ since they operate early in the morning and late in the evenings.  The adjacent takeaway shop is also considered to benefit from the same type of restriction, especially during the evenings.

5.6      Consequently the proposal is considered to be beneficial to local business activity in this area.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install P10 Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Provide P10 restrictions on Ferry Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Letters of consultation with a site plan were issued to all tenants and property owners the nearest 10 properties on Ferry Road and Hart Street.  The Woolston Community Association and the Woolston Development project were also consulted.

6.5      Three responses were received in support and no objections were received or requests to amend the proposal.

6.6      The Team Leader of Parking Compliance was also consulted and has confirmed his support for this option.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

6.8      Within the Parking Strategy for The Garden City, the kerb space parking priority for on-street parking in Policy 6G (Business Areas) states that short-stay private vehicle parking for businesses has a priority greater than that of commuter parking. This proposal is consent with this policy.

Financial Implications

6.9      Cost of Implementation - $400 to provide road markings and signs plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.11    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.12    Part 1, clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.13    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.14    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.15    There is the risk of displaced all day parking causing a problem elsewhere.  There are several other available spaces on Hart Street, which should accommodate these demands.

Implementation

6.16    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.17    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.18    The advantages of this option include:

·   Increases opportunities for short stay parking, for customers and deliveries.

·   Improves turnover of parking spaces throughout the day.

·   Benefits multiple businesses due to shared use.

6.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces all day parking to other locations.

12.    Major Hornbrook Road at Muritai Terrace, Mount Pleasant - Proposed Amendment to Time Restricted Parking

Reference:

19/3563

Presenter(s):

Barry Hayes – Traffic Engineer, Traffic Operations Team

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the amendment to time restricted parking to P10 restrictions on Major Hornbrook Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report was staff generated in response to the local scout group who requested more suitable restrictions to correspond with their visitors.

1.3      These measures have been requested to enable the restrictions to be more readily enforced and maintain the level of road safety at this location at all times.

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 Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approve:

1.        That pursuant to section 591 of the Local Government Act 1974 and Part 1 section 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw, approve that the part of Major Hornbrook Road, as indicated in the attached drawing TG133008 Issue 2, dated 04/01/2019, forming part of the resolution is specified as a parking place for any vehicles and be restricted to maximum period of 10 minutes at any time.

2.        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.

3.        That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 – Replace the P5 with P10 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:

·   Enables enforcement to be possible during evenings when scout meetings are scheduled.

·   Provides a more reasonable waiting period for parents, if scout meetings end late.

·   Deters overnight parking and the associated risk of unsafe overtaking during this time.

·   Retains the discouragement of most parking activity at an unsafe location.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   None identified.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      On 16 July 2018 the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approved a proposal to introduce parking restrictions at this location, which included P5 restrictions between the two successive bends at this location. The restrictions apply to two parking spaces on the downhill side of the road and have been in operation for approximately six months.

5.2      This was proposed to deter most parking demands at a location where there is a risk of drivers, including of buses, overtaking parked vehicles close to tight bends, which could cause head on collisions with a high risk of severe injury.

5.3      The purpose of the short stay restrictions is to enable drivers to either drop off of pick up at the scout hall, deliver goods, assist rubbish collection in this area or use the public toilets at the domain.

5.4      Further to discussions with the Group Leader of the Mount Pleasant Scout Group it has become apparent that it would be appropriate to amend the restrictions slightly, to match the parking demands. The scout hall does have a car park, though with limited capacity, which results in some parents waiting on-street to drop off or pick up.

5.5      Firstly, the approved restriction applies to the standard working day of 8am to 6pm. Since most meetings at the scout den occur later in the evenings, the specified period should be extended to take effect when parents arrive before or after meetings. Drivers are generally recognising the existing restriction, though should a parking ticket be disputed, Council could not justify an infringement after 6pm. Consequently, by amending the restriction to ‘at any time’ this addresses the issue.

5.6      Secondly, it is apparent that a P5 restriction is an unreasonable short time during the scout collection periods. Meetings can run late and a 10 minute period allows more flexibility for waiting parents. Since this is still a short period, it still functions as a deterrent for parking activity for most of the day to reduce the frequency of unsafe overtaking.

5.7      In summary this proposal provides a more suitable time restriction for the local parking demands and maintains the level of road safety benefits.


 

6.   Option 1 – Replace P5 with P10 ‘At Any Time’ Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Replace the existing P5 (8am-6pm) restrictions with P10 (At any time) restrictions on Major Hornbrook Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      This proposal only affects the Mount Pleasant Sea Scout Group and consequently they have been the only consultee.  The Group Leader of the Sea Scout Group fully supports the proposals.

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.

6.7      Within the Parking Strategy for The Garden City, the kerb space parking priority for on-street parking in Policy 6G (Business Areas) states that short-stay private vehicle parking for businesses has a priority greater than that of commuter parking. This proposal is consent with this policy.

Financial Implications

6.8      Cost of Implementation - $200 to replace two signs plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.10    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

13.    Mount Pleasant Road - Proposed No Stopping Restrictions

Reference:

19/5027

Presenter(s):

Barry Hayes – Traffic Engineer, Traffic Operations Team

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve No Stopping restrictions on three separate sections of Mount Pleasant Road as indicated on Attachments A, C and D. 

Origin of Report

1.2      This report was staff generated in response to residents who expressed concerns for traffic safety at these location.

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.

2.2      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.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approve:

1.        Under clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that the stopping of vehicles on the parts of Mount Pleasant Road as shown by broken yellow lines on the attached drawings TG133482 issue 1 dated 8/11/18, TG133478 issue 1 dated 8/11/18 and TG133479 issue 1 dated 8/11/18 is prohibited.

2.        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.

3.        That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 - Provide No Stopping restrictions (preferred option)

·   Option 2 – Do nothing.

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.4      The advantages of this option include:

·   Improves road safety at locations with poor forward sight lines

·   Assists large vehicles turning in these areas such as rubbish trucks and delivery vehicles

·   Improves sight lines for drivers turning out of The Rise and various residential driveways

4.5      The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces parking to other locations

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Council staff were approached by local residents, who expressed concerns about parking activity that occurs along different sections of Mount Pleasant Road, which is considered to cause high risk safety issues, particularly near bend locations. Three locations were identified to warrant specific attention, namely:

1.   Section near to 104 Mount Pleasant Road (S bend layout)

2.   Mount Pleasant between Billy’s Track and The Rise

3.   Mount Pleasant Road west of Soleares Avenue (S bend layout)

5.2      The residents indicated that at these locations parking activity occurs only occasionally and can often be trade vehicles.  Nevertheless the parking occurs at locations where sight lines are poor, yet could be possible a short distance further away which would reduce the safety risks.

5.3      Staff investigated this request. Mount Pleasant Road is subject to a 50 km/h limit and is marked throughout as one lane in each direction with unrestricted parking on both sides for most of its length. Curve speed advisory signs are installed at the bend locations and their approaches.

5.4      Location 2 includes 2 tee-intersections, Billy’s Track which has give way control and The Rise which is uncontrolled. Location 3 includes Soleares Avenue which is also uncontrolled.

5.5      All three locations are in residential areas with a steep incline and close to a succession of residential driveways, which also have steep inclines and poor sight lines upon turning out onto the road. Mount Pleasant Road has a winding alignment, which all contributes to poor forward sight lines at several locations.

5.6      Staff visited the site on several occasions and it was apparent that on-street parking occasionally takes place close to these bend locations and accesses. Sometimes, the vehicles park partly on the footpath, which suggests the risks are known by the driver. However, this still requires passing vehicles to drive over the centre lines whilst approaching a blind bend in the opposite direction, or still severely reduces the sight lines from accesses nearby. Parking on the footpath is considered to be undesirable anyway since it is illegal due to blocking pedestrians or causing damage to the surface.

5.7      Staff checked the crash history of this location.

5.8      At location 1, 2 crashes have been recorded; a non-injury crash in 2008 near the upper bend involving 2 x car driving in opposite directions and a vehicle parked on-street. In 2016 a serious crash occurred between a car and a cycle near the lower bend.

5.9      At location 2, 2 crashes have been recorded; in 2004 a car driving out of The Rise collided with a motorcycle causing a minor injury. In 2009 a car lost control and hit a tree with no injuries.

5.10    At location 3, one crash has been recorded in 2008 which involved 2 opposing vehicles and a parked vehicle. This occurred near the lower bend of this location.

5.11    Staff have consequently recommended no stopping restrictions at these locations along different sections of Mount Pleasant Road, to ensure parked vehicles do not block cause unsafe overtaking or block the sight lines of residents leaving driveways that are already at acute angles or have a steep incline with inherent safety issues. 

5.12    Staff consider that the proposed restrictions will improve safety for drivers and cyclists approaching from both directions on Mount Pleasant Road, as well as adjoining driveways.

6.   Option 1 – Provide No Stopping Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Provide no stopping restrictions on three sections of Mount Pleasant Road in accordance with Attachments A, C and D.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Letters of consultation with a site plan were initially issued to all tenants and property owners at:

·        Location 1 – 88 to 107 Mount Pleasant Road

·        Location 2 -  127 to 136 Mount Pleasant Road and all properties on The Rise

·        Location 3 – 185 to 212 Mount Pleasant Road and 185-212 Soleares Avenue

6.5      The Mount Pleasant residents’ association was also consulted. 

6.6      In total, 18 emailed responses were received and are summarised for each of the 3 locations as follows:

6.7      For location 1, 6 responses were received. Amongst these 4 fully supported the proposal and 2 requested amendments, which have been incorporated, though one of these does still not fully meet the resident’s request, which relates to the section of no stopping between the driveways to no. 99 and no. 103/105.

6.8      The resident requested a space here to assist whilst they trim the council owned trees/shrubs.  Staff consider this to be a dangerous location to park which causes uphill drivers to overtake a parked vehicle here.  Consequently this preferred option still proposes no stopping at this location, which improves the level of safety at this location.

6.9      Option 3 of this report proposes one space here which is explained later in this report.

6.10    For location 2, 5 responses were received which were all in support.

6.11    For location 3, 7 responses were received of 5 were in support or requested amendments which have been included.

6.12    The 2 objectors are the residents of 187 and 207 Mount Pleasant Road. The resident at 187 stated that ‘…this no stopping would not allow members of our household or visitors to park and access our property’. In response, the proposed no stopping begins approximately 20m east of their driveway. Consequently, there is space for 3 vehicles in this area, as well as opportunities on the opposite side, since no restrictions are proposed here.

6.13    The resident at 207 states that ‘…the proposals are not necessary and will serve only to move an already problem-parking area elsewhere along the road’. Staff disagree with this statement, as there are substantial alternative opportunities to park along this section of road, where is it safer to overtake a parked vehicle.

6.14    The Team Leader of Parking Compliance was also consulted and has not objected or requested any amendment.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.16    Cost of Implementation - $1,000 to provide road markings, plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.18    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.19    Part 1, clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.20    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.21    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.22    No risks identified. 

Implementation

6.23    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.24    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.25    The advantages of this option include:

·   Improves road safety at locations with poor forward sight lines

·   Assists large vehicles turning in these areas such as rubbish trucks and delivery vehicles

·   Improves sight lines for drivers turning out of The Rise and various residential driveways

6.26    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces parking to other locations

·   Prevents the resident near 99 to park near to his tree trimming activity 

7.   Option 2 – As Option 1 with reduced no stopping at 104 Mt Pleasant Road

Option Description

7.1      Provide no stopping restrictions on three sections of Mount Pleasant Road in accordance with Attachments B, C and D.

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 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      Letters of consultation with a site plan were initially issued to all tenants and property owners as stated for Option 2.

7.5      For location 1, this option provides some concession to meet the request of a local resident, which relates to the section of no stopping between the driveways to no. 99 and no. 103/105.

7.6      Whereas option 1 proposes no stopping for the whole length between these driveways, the request was for 1 or 2 spaces along this section. Staff consider this to be a dangerous location for parking activity, though have provided this option to potentially accommodate the needs of the local resident as they carry out trimming activity.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.8      Cost of Implementation - $1,000 to provide road markings, plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

7.10    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

7.11    Part 1, clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

7.12    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

7.13    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

7.14    Results in parking that would cause dangerous overtaking near a bend with poor forward visibility. 

Implementation

7.15    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

7.16    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.17    The advantages of this option include:

·   Improves road safety at locations with poor forward sight lines

·   Assists large vehicles turning in these areas such as rubbish trucks and delivery vehicles

·   Improves sight lines for drivers turning out of The Rise and various residential driveways

·   Provides some legitimate parking space for the resident to use trailer during trimming operations

7.18    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces parking to other locations

·   Enables parking to occur in a potentially dangerous location (at location 1)

8.   Option 3 – Do Nothing

Option Description

8.1      Retain the unrestricted parking.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

14.    Beachville Road, Redcliffs - Proposed Accessible Parking

Reference:

19/5085

Presenter(s):

Barry Hayes – Traffic Engineer, Traffic Operations Team

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the conversion of an existing off-street parking space to an accessible parking space adjacent to Beachville Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report was staff generated in response to a request from the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group. The nearest public accessible parking spaces to this location is located approximately 500m away, along James Street, which is an unacceptably long distance for users of the Coastal Pathway.

1.3      These measures have been requested to enable an appropriate space to be available within a convenient distance of the Coastal Pathway.

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 Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approve:

1.        That the parking of vehicles be reserved for vehicles with an approved disabled person's parking permit, prominently displayed in the vehicle, in accordance with section 6.4.1 of the Land Transport - Road User Rule 2004 on the north east side of Beachville Road as shown on the attached drawing TG133488 issue 1 dated 15/11/2018.

2.        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.

3.        That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1      The 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 - Provide an accessible parking space (preferred option).

·   Option 2 – Do nothing.

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (preferred option).

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·   Provides a convenient location for drivers with a mobility impairment to access the Coastal Pathway and any adjacent amenities.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces existing parking to other locations.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      A representative of the Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group (CCPG) approached the Council highlighting the lack of accessible parking close to the new Coastal Pathway in Redcliffs.  A stated commitment of the CCPG was to provide access for all to the Coastal Pathway. Consequently a dedicated space was requested, close to the Coastal Pathway.

5.2      The CCPG had indicated a preference for the space to be at the south eastern end of Beachville Road, though a precise location was not specified.

5.3      Staff investigated the local site environment to identify an appropriate location. Currently, Beachville Road has unrestricted parking on both sides. There are off-street right angled spaces provided on the seaward side (equivalent to the north east side) of Beachville Road and a location at the end of this row of parking spaces is proposed for an accessible parking space, as shown in the site plan. 

5.4      This location is immediately adjacent to the Coastal Pathway and is therefore considered ideal. The installation of the accessible parking space would enable a convenient space to be consistently available for visitors to the area who have mobility issues.

6.   Option 1 – Install an accessible parking space on Beachville Road (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      Provide an accessible parking space on the north east side of Beachville Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Staff contacted all tenants and owners at the nearest 10 properties on Beachville Road, as well as the Coastal Pathway Group.  The Coastal Pathway Group confirmed their support and no responses were received in opposition or requesting amendment.

6.5      The Team Leader of Parking Compliance also supports for 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 - $400 to provide road markings with a sign and post plus $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

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

6.9      Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.10    Part 1, clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to limit the stopping, standing or parking of vehicles on any road to any class of vehicles.  Classes of vehicle include those displaying an appropriate permit, which is in this case would be a Mobility Parking Permit.

6.11    The Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Board includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.12    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.13    There is a risk of parking being displaced to other locations.  However, this proposal affects only one parking space and the effects are expected to be negligible.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.15    Implementation timeframe - Approximately six weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.16    The advantages of this option include:

·   Provides a convenient location for drivers with a mobility impairment to access the Coastal Pathway and adjacent amenities.

6.17    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Displaces one unrestricted parking demand to another location.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1      Retain the unrestricted parking.

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 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      This option is inconsistent with the request to improve accessible parking at this location.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5      This option is not consistent with Council’s Transport Strategic Plan 2012-42, which includes objective 1.2: Balancing the network and states that ‘Council will deliver better connectivity and accessibility for people with mobility impairments’.

Financial Implications

7.6      Cost of Implementation - $750 for the consultation and preparation of this report.

7.7      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Not applicable.

7.8      Funding source - Not applicable.

Legal Implications

7.9      Not applicable.

Risks and Mitigations

7.10    This option is inconsistent with the request for accessible parking to assist users of the Coastal Pathway with mobility issues.

Implementation

7.11    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable.

7.12    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.13    The advantages of this option include:

·   Retains one unrestricted parking space.

7.14    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Does not meet the needs of visitors with mobility issues.

·   Displaces parking to other locations.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Council staff were approached by local residents, who expressed concerns about parking activity that occurs close to this location, which is considered to cause high risk safety issues, since it consists of a hairpin bend.

5.2      The residents indicated that the inconsiderate parking activity occurs only occasionally and sometimes occurs at locations where sight lines are poor, yet alternative parking places are possible a short distance away which would reduce the safety risks.

5.3      Staff investigated this request. Ocean View Terrace is subject to a 50 km/h limit and is marked throughout as one lane in each direction and has a winding alignment. There are some lengths of No Stopping already in effect further south and uphill of the proposal.

5.4      This part of Sumner is a residential area with a steep incline and close to a succession of residential driveways, which also has steep inclines and poor sight lines upon turning out onto the road.

5.5      Staff visited the site and it was apparent that on-street parking occasionally takes place close to the bend locations and residential accesses. Sometimes, the vehicles park partly on the grass berm or narrow shoulder, which suggests the risks are known by the driver. However, this still requires passing vehicles to drive over the centre lines whilst approaching a blind bend in the opposite direction, or still severely reduces the sight lines from accesses nearby.

5.6      Staff checked the crash history of this location which showed that no crashes had been recorded.  Nevertheless, staff consider that there are considerable safety risks at this location, which warrant the introduction of No Stopping restrictions.

5.7      Staff have consequently recommended extending the existing stopping restrictions at this location. This would ensure parked vehicles do not cause unsafe overtaking or block the sight lines of residents leaving driveways, which are already at acute angles or have a steep incline with inherent safety issues. 

5.8      Staff consider that the proposed restrictions will improve safety for drivers and cyclists approaching from both directions on Ocean View Terrace, as well as adjoining driveways.

5.   Context/Background

Ferry Road Master Plan

5.1      Council adopted the Ferry Road Master Plan in 2014. This was developed to support the recovery of suburban centres along Ferry Road from Fitzgerald Avenue to the Ferrymead Bridge, and to improve the safety and amenity of this road corridor. The Master Plan forms part of the Council’s Suburban Centres Programme and was prepared in response to the damage caused in suburban centres from the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.   The Master Plan was prepared in consultation with the Ferry Road community and is divided into individual projects focusing on specific areas along Ferry Road.

5.2      The improvements to Woolston Village Centre project (WL1) aims to improve the streetscape along Ferry Road through Woolston Village. The aim is to enhance Woolston’s appeal as a destination, highlight the distinctive industrial character of the village centre and balance the needs of all users.

5.3      Public consultation on a draft proposal for improvements to Woolston Village Centre took place in May and June 2016.

5.4      In response to the 2016 proposal there was strong support for enhancing and beautifying the village. However, significant concern was raised about the negative effects the proposed removal of 56 on-street parking spaces would have on the viability of businesses and the local community.

5.5      More details of the 2016 proposal and the community views and preferences can be found in Section 7 of this report.

5.6      A workshop was held with the Community Board to discuss next steps.  At this it was agreed to proceed with investigating a revised proposal, taking into account the feedback received. Revised project objectives were agreed by the Community Board and Project Sponsor.

5.7      At the same time, it was discovered that the old tram tracks and kerb-to-kerb concrete foundations are still in place in this section of Ferry Road.  The kerb-to-kerb concrete limits the use of certain treatments in the scheme e.g. landscaped medians.

5.8      During investigations for the new scheme a number of different options were considered, taking into account consultation feedback received, physical limitations such as the tram tracks and concrete, and budget constraints.

5.9      Public consultation on the revised proposal was open for four weeks from Tuesday 5 June until Tuesday 3 July 2018.

6.   Option 1 – Preferred Option

Option Description

6.1      The preferred option aims to create a pedestrian focused environment, while improving access to the village centre for all modes of transport and creating a village feel.  The details of the plan can be seen in Attachment A.

6.2      The pedestrian environment will be improved through the use of wider footpaths at key locations, such as the busy shopping area between Portman Street and Oak Street.  The wider footpaths will allow pedestrian movements, as well as encouraging pedestrians to stop and meet.

6.3      The number of pedestrian crossing points will increase from four to five, and will include two signalised crossings and three pedestrian refuges.

6.4      The existing signalised crossing currently outside New World supermarket’s loading area will be relocated to link with the car park at the rear of the Woolston Community Library and increase the accessibility to these spaces.  The existing pedestrian refuges will also be upgraded to meet current design standards.

6.5      Public transport is a vital component of the transport options in Woolston, and the public transport provision will be upgraded as part of this proposal.  The bus stops will be brought into the village centre to reprioritise their use, and will be paired with signalised crossings to improve their accessibility.

6.6      Cycle infrastructure will be upgraded with wider cycle lanes provided through the village centre. The scheme also incorporates a signalised cycle crossing on Ferry Road to the east of Maronan Street, which will link the village centre and allow cyclists to move between the major cycle routes to the north and south of Woolston, as well as helping to provide safe cycle access to the shops, churches and school.

6.7      Gateways will be created at either end of the scheme to clearly identify the extent of the village. The gateways use a combination of vertical elements and changes in material pallet, through landscaping and road narrowings to signal the arrival into the village and to prompt drivers to reduce vehicle speeds.

6.8      A 30km/h design speed is one of the project objectives. It is proposed to trial a 30 km/h speed limit along Ferry Road between Portman Street and St Anne’s School. Reducing vehicle speeds is seen as being essential to allow safe pedestrian crossing movements, particularly for those who cross using the flush median, and contribute to the village feel.

6.9      The landscape design includes replacing and increasing the amount of street furniture.  There will be eight new seats and nine new rubbish bins. In addition, there will be five cycle stands which can accommodate six cycles each, creating a total of 30 cycle parking spaces throughout the scheme.  The preferred option includes new paving along the footpaths and at pedestrian crossing points and approximately 36 new trees.

Significance

6.10    The level of significance of this option is medium and consistent with Section 2 of this report.

6.11    Engagement activities for this level of significance includes:

6.11.1 ‘Have Your Say’ community consultation with both online and hard copy documentation and feedback forms.

6.11.2 Social media and communications coverage.

6.11.3 Public information sessions and meetings with affected stakeholders and community representatives.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.12    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

6.13    Those affected by this proposal include businesses in Woolston Village and residents in the local community, as well as members of the wider community traveling through or visiting Woolston for work or leisure. This includes drivers, pedestrians, bus users and cyclists.

6.14    Staff introduced the proposal to directly affected businesses and key stakeholders before public consultation started at an information evening at St Johns Church on 30 May 2018, which was attended by fifteen people including three Community Board members. Separate pre-consultation meetings were also held with Foodstuffs Ltd, St Anne’s School and Church, and the MP for the Port Hills who is based in Woolston.

6.15    Public consultation on the revised proposal was open for four weeks from Tuesday 5 June until Tuesday 3 July 2018.

6.16    Council ‘Have Your Say’ leaflets and feedback forms were available online and approximately 800 copies were hand-delivered or posted to businesses, residents, schools and preschools, community groups, absentee landowners and stakeholders. Attachment B shows the 2018 consultation leaflet and feedback form.

6.17    A drop-in consultation information session attended by ten people was held in St Johns Church on 13 June 2018, and ongoing communication and meetings with businesses and property owners took place during and beyond the consultation period. The project team also presented the revised proposal at a well-attended Greater Linwood Community Forum at Te Waka Unua School.

6.18    There were 114 responses to the revised proposal.  Forty-four submitters (38%) indicated support including Woolston Plunket, Environment Canterbury, Holy Smoke Building owners, Three Boys Brewery and St Anne’s School. Forty-two submitters (37%) indicated support with suggestions including NZ Heavy Haulage Association, Canterbury District Health Board and St Anne’s Catholic Church. Twenty-five submitters (22%) did not support the proposal including SPOKES Canterbury, Woolston businesses such as Woolston Pharmacy, Rangiora Holdings as owner representing 12 shops in the village centre, and Woolston Dairy at 701 Ferry Road. The remaining three submitters provided concerns or suggestions only, including Foodstuffs representatives.

 

6.19    Key positive comments included commendations for a revised plan that better balances the need for revitalisation and a sense of place, with parking provision. There was support for improving the village for locals and visitors, including walking space and seating for pedestrians, and facilities for cyclists and bus users. Several noted that improving the village will make it more attractive for prospective residents and existing business committed to being in the area. There was support for a general tidy up and enhancement – a number of those keen to see landscaping and trees improved also providing alternative suggestions.

6.20    Key issues raised during consultation were

·   Parking removal (in particular the proposal for one parking space outside the pharmacy)

·   Requests for alternative tree and landscaping species

6.21    Approximately 40% of submitters requested all or some of the existing parking spaces be retained, and a petition document received as a submission included 1038 signatures requested:  ‘We, the undersigned, do not agree with the proposal to remove 14 car parks from the Woolston village and ask that these car parks be retained’. The petition is presented to the Community Board along with this report.

 

6.22    Sixty-seven submitters gave Woolston as their address, and seven were from nearby suburbs of Linwood, Redcliffs, Sumner and Clifton Hill. The remaining 40 were from other Christchurch suburbs. Of those from Woolston, 26 indicated support, 27 indicated support with suggestions and 14 did not support the proposal.

Parking issues

6.23    Key parking-related comments included the need for access for elderly and mobility impaired drivers, in particular close to the pharmacy and adjacent businesses. There was also some concern about the proposed loss of parking outside St Anne’s School, although this concern was not raised by the school.

Project team response to parking issues

South side of Ferry Road parking

6.24    As part of the proposal and in response to submissions to the 2016 concept plan, there is an increased number of car parks on the south side between Oak and Catherine Streets, as detailed in Attachment C - Parking Comparison Plan. This is because although most businesses on the south side have private off-street car parking at the rear, drivers may not be aware of this and some people find these car parks difficult to access. 

North side of Ferry Road parking

6.25    In response to requests for more on-street car parking outside the pharmacy and adjacent shops, parking outside 683 – 687 Ferry Road has been increased from one space to three spaces.

6.26    There is a considerable amount of easily accessible private off-street parking on the north side of Ferry Road for those visiting private businesses. Some businesses on this side of the road do not have parking on-site. A number of on-street car parks in this location have been retained. The Council car park behind the Woolston Community Library also provides 32 spaces.

St Anne’s School & Church parking

6.27    Feedback also identified some concerns with the loss of parking around St Anne’s School. Since consultation, two additional parking spaces have been included on the south side of Ferry Road outside number 670, which is opposite the church and school. Recent discussions with St Anne’s Church have removed three parking spaces outside 733 Ferry Road to allow for a bus stop location that meets the needs of both the project and the church. This means that between Maronan Street and the eastern boundary of St Anne’s School, the number of car parks has decreased by two - from the existing 17 to the now proposed 15.

6.28    Feedback from St Anne’s School requested removing the P3 parking restrictions to the west of the kea crossing outside 733 and 664 – 666 Ferry Road. These parks are now proposed to have P60 restrictions.

6.29    There was little comment and no formal opposition for the relocation of the bus stops at Portman Street to central Woolston.

6.30    The overall parking provision proposed in the village is now 56 spaces, which is a decrease of 11 spaces when compared to the existing number of on-street parks in this section of Ferry Road. Recent parking survey information shows that demand can be met in the remaining on-street and off-street car parks.

Other improvements for parking and access in the village centre

6.31    Signs have now been installed to direct drivers to the car park behind the Woolston Community Library from Ferry Road via Portman Street.

6.32    The Council car park behind the Community Library has 32 spaces. This is four more spaces than previously provided, including two designated mobility parks which are only a short distance from the pharmacy and shopping area, and a well-lit, level shared path from the car park provides easy access to Ferry Road for pedestrians.

6.33    The signal-controlled pedestrian crossing has been moved closer to the Woolston Community Library car park so that people can park here and safely cross to the businesses on the south side of Ferry Road. 

6.34    Summary of proposed parking changes following consultation feedback

·   Two further short-term car parks will be retained outside the pharmacy and adjacent shops, now three car parks in total.

·   Three car parks removed from outside 733 Ferry Road due to changes to the bus stop location.

·   Two further car parks included outside 670 Ferry Road.

·   P60 parking restrictions outside 733 and 664 – 666 Ferry Road

6.35    Following discussion with adjacent business owners seven parking spaces proposed on the north side of Ferry Road will have time restrictions:

·   Four parking spaces outside the dairy at 701 Ferry Road will be restricted to ten minutes.

·   Three parking spaces outside the pharmacy and adjacent shops will be restricted to fifteen minutes.

Trees and landscaping

6.36    Approximately 20% of submitters commented on the proposed trees, 5% in support of the proposal and 7% requesting more natives/evergreens instead of the deciduous trees proposed as part of the Master Plan. Key opposition comments stated a preference to prioritise wider footpaths and trees over parking retention.

Project team response to suggestions for trees and landscaping

6.37    The Woolston Village improvements project is part of the Ferry Road Master Plan which was developed with the community through workshops and consultation in 2014. This resulted in a plan for trees with a red and white colour theme, a maximum height of 8 metres, and seasonal variety and interest (deciduous).

6.38    The tree selection has been reviewed in response to requests from a number of submitters that native and evergreen trees be considered for Woolston.  New Zealand Kauri trees will now replace the Upright Hornbeams at the village entrances and the English Oaks at St Johns Church.  Native plants will also be incorporated into the under-planting.  Magnolia Kobus will be retained as the main street tree.

6.39    The set of four Pin Oak trees at the west end of the village will now all be removed and will be replaced with Magnolia Kobus. This is in response to concerns raised by the NZ Heavy Haulage Association regarding the ability for oversized vehicles to move through this section of road.  Magnolia kobus are smaller than Pin Oaks and replacing the trees on the south side of the road will enable the new trees to be moved back slightly from the kerb thereby further increasing the road space.

6.40    New Zealand Kauri (Agathis australis) is a slow growing, evergreen conifer which makes an attractive specimen tree.  It has a narrow, pyramid form which lasts for more than fifty years.

6.41    Changes to the layout outside 669 Ferry Road - the old ANZ bank building - and proposed layout changes at 683 Ferry Road have meant the privately owned space for two racks of six cycle stands and two seats proposed for these locations is no longer available. Staff are continuing to work with the property owners to find available space for the cycle stands on their property.

6.42    More detailed response to and including other issues raised such as requests for rubbish and recycling bins, the 30km/h speed limit and cycle provisions are available in Attachment D – Issues/Suggestions and Project Team Response.

6.43    Full submissions with names only can be viewed online at https://cccgovtnz.cwp.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/151

6.44    Changes to the 2018 consulted plan that have resulted in this final plan for Community Board and Council approval are:

·   Two further short-term car parks will be retained outside the pharmacy and adjacent shops, now three car parks in total. These parks will be restricted to 15-minute parking.

·   Three car parks removed from outside 733 Ferry Road due to changes to the bus stop location. The bus stop and shelter outside 729 Ferry Road has been relocated to outside 733 Ferry Road.

·   Two further car parks included outside 670 Ferry Road.

·   P60 parking restrictions outside 664 – 666 Ferry Road

·   Four parking spaces outside the dairy at 701 Ferry Road will be restricted to ten-minute parking.

·   Moving the 30/50 speed limit threshold to the eastern boundary of the St Anne’s school.

·   The shared path on the south side of Ferry Road has been extended onto Maronan Street, so cyclists do not have to cycle on Ferry Road to use the signalised crossing if travelling from the major cycleway on the other side of the Heathcote River.

·   Extension of the cycle lane on St Johns Street so it extends past the existing indented parking to help guide cyclists around the short term parking.

·   The island outside New World has been shortened in length to allow right turns into the Salvation Army access (636 Ferry Road), however this will still restrict right turns into New World super market, as outlined in their resource consent.

·   The island outside New World has been narrowed slightly to improve the alignment for vehicles and cyclists.

·   The island in the road outside 622 Ferry Road has been shortened in length to allow right turning into the access for the bakery.

·   The island outside St Anne’s Church and St Anne’s School has been relocated slightly to the east to make it easier to turn right into the adjacent driveways.

·   In response to requests for more native and evergreen trees, we are now proposing to plant six NZ Kauri instead of the two English Oaks outside St Johns Church.  This change in conjunction with the proposed street upgrades and existing activity at the St Johns/Catherine Street intersection makes this area the more natural gateway for the eastern entrance of the Woolston Village. 

·   The two tress proposed outside St Anne’s School have been removed, as this location is no longer the eastern gateway.

·   The set of four Pin Oak trees at the west end of the village will now all be removed and will be replaced with Magnolia Kobus.

·   The rack of six cycle stands and two seats proposed outside 669 Ferry Road, and the rack of six cycle stands proposed outside 683 Ferry Road have been removed.

·   To make room for the additional two parking spaces outside the pharmacy and adjacent shops, two small existing trees will be removed along with the two proposed trees along the kerb. To balance this and create a more vegetated and defined feel to the public space we are now proposing to replace the two small existing trees with three Autumn Blaze maple trees.

·   An extra rubbish bin has been added outside 630 Ferry Road due to the volume of food shops and take-away outlets along this stretch of Ferry Road.

·   One extra street light will be added on both Catherine and Maronan streets.

Parallel consultation - shared path proposal

6.45    Sixty-eight submitters were in support of the proposed shared path from Ferry Road to the Woolston Community Library car park, which was presented in the same consultation document. Twenty-nine didn’t support and 18 didn't answer the question.

6.46    The shared path has been installed as part of the construction of the Community Library. The resolution to formalise this change to a shared path status is included in this report.

Next steps

6.47    Thirty-three submitters would like to be kept informed about how we will be including reminders of Woolston’s cultural history and meaning in the detailed design and following our work with Matapopore.

6.48    The Community Board has been sent the full submissions including contact details, ahead of the meeting. Submitters have been sent a letter with a summary of consultation, and a link to the plan including full submissions with names only, the final proposal and details of the meeting and how to request speaking rights.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.49    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies – Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan, which designates Woolston Village as a ‘Walkable Centre’ and also forms part of the ‘Local Cycle Network’.

Financial Implications

6.50    Cost of Implementation – The estimated total project cost to implement WL1 is $3,174,939.

6.51    There is a shortfall in funding of $507,472 which is proposed to be met from funds currently sitting at program level in the Suburban Master Plan – Ferry Road programme. A budget change will be processed according to financial delegations and process. The tender will not be let until the budget is available.

6.52    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – There will be an increase in maintenance costs due to the regular maintenance required on the new green cycle lane surfacing, new landscaping and trees, and new street furniture, e.g. rubbish bins. Following the first years defects liability period, this has been calculated as an increase of approximately $9,870 per annum, which will be included in the annual maintenance schedule.

6.53    Funding source – Funding of $2,667,467 has been allocated in the Council’s Long Term Plan to implement the Improvements to Woolston Village Centre – WL1 (named Ferry Road Master Plan - Project WL1 in the Long Term Plan) with the balance from Suburban Master Plan – Ferry Road programme as above.  Ongoing costs will be funded from the budgeted annual maintenance schedule.

Legal Implications

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

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

Risks and Mitigations

6.56    There are no significant risks with this option.

Implementation

6.57    Implementation dependencies – The following consents may be required:

·    National Environmental Standards (NES) consent from CCC for management of contamination of the road e.g. coal tar & contaminated soil.

·    Stormwater Authorisation under the Interim Global Stormwater Consent, Environment Canterbury may also require a construction stormwater consent.

·    Removal and works around trees may be able to be covered under the CCC Global Tree consent.

6.58    Requires Council approval of traffic controls by resolution including cycle lanes and traffic signals.

6.59    Implementation timeframe – Council approval is scheduled for March 2019. After detailed design and tender, construction is currently anticipated to commence in January 2020 and take approximately five months.

·    Potential for some minor delays to traffic due to the slower speed environment.

7.   Option 2 – Original Consulted Option 2016

Option Description

7.1      The original option went to public consultation in 2016, however it was not taken to the Community Board for approval due to the significant community concerns about the proposed loss of parking.

7.2      This option included:

·    A pedestrian focused environment, with wider footpath and four new pedestrian refuge islands.

·    New gateways to identify the start and end of the village.

·    A trial speed limit of 30km/h for one year with the possibility of a permanent 30km/h speed reduction.

·    A reduction in parking from 77 to 21 spaces.

Significance

7.3      The level of significance of this option is medium and consistent with Section 2 of this report.

7.4      Engagement activities for this level of significance includes:

7.4.1   ‘Have Your Say’ community consultation with both online and hard copy documentation and feedback forms.

7.4.2   Social media and communications coverage.

7.4.3   Public information sessions and meetings with affected stakeholders and community representatives.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.5      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

7.6      Those affected by this proposal include businesses in Woolston Village and residents in the local community, as well as the wider community traveling through or visiting the centre for business or leisure. This includes drivers, pedestrians, bus users and cyclists.

7.7      Also see Context/Background Section 5 of this report and Attachment E - 2016 Consultation Leaflet.

7.8      168 written submissions were received. A significant number of the submissions received indicated their opposition because of concerns that the negative effects of parking removal, and to a lesser extent speed reduction, would outweigh the benefits of the proposal. There was a strong sense from these submitters that Woolston’s business centre currently relies on passing traffic and easy access. The full submissions can be viewed in Attachment F.

7.9      Those indicating support focused on the wider travel choice and pedestrian benefits of the proposal, and supported the improvements to the village streetscape as a way of attracting people to visit and spend time in Woolston.

7.10    Ninety-four submitters (56%) - approximately half of whom were local residents, businesses or property owners indicated they generally opposed the scheme, focusing on concerns about business and community viability due to the proposed parking loss.

7.11    A petition with 770 signatures, largely from residents, business or property owners in Woolston and surrounding areas, was presented the Community Board on 19 September 2016, with these key points: highlighting the need to support the beautification of Woolston Village, opposing the removing of car parking between St Johns Street and Portman Street, and noting that most shops in Woolston Village are not ‘browsing shops’ but ‘purchase and leave’.

7.12    72 submitters (43%) indicated they generally supported the scheme, wanting to see the benefits of improvements to Woolston despite some having reservations about aspects of the proposal that were mainly parking related.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.13    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies – Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan, which designates Woolston Village as a ‘Walkable Centre’ and also forms part of the ‘Local Cycle Network’.

Financial Implications 

7.14    Cost of Implementation – The total estimated project cost for the original consulted option for WL1 in 2016 was originally estimated to be $2,200,000.  This does not take into account the additional costs to construction as a result of the tram track and concrete foundation.  These additional costs are anticipated to be in the order of $1,500,000.

7.15    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – There will be an increase in maintenance costs due to the regular maintenance required on the new green cycle lane surfacing, new landscaping and trees, and new street furniture, e.g. rubbish bins.

7.16    Funding source – Funding of $2,667,467 has been allocated in the Council’s Long Term Plan to implement the Improvements to Woolston Village Centre – WL1 (named Ferry Road Master Plan - Project WL1 in the Long Term Plan).

17.    Redcliffs Transport Project - Redcliffs School Transport Safety Requirements

Reference:

19/14647

Presenter(s):

Mark Gregory – Transport Network Planner,
Isabelle Gensburger – Project Manager
Tara King – Senior Engagement Advisor

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the proposed changes to the road network, associated with ensuring a safe environment for the proposed Redcliffs School development (Refer Attachment A).

Origin of Report

1.2      This report is staff generated as part of the 2018/19 funding round process.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by using the engagement and significance matrix.  Staff have considered the significance of the decision to be made by the Community Board and Council.  Their assessment is that the matter is of medium significance for the following reasons:

2.1.2   There is a strong interest within the local community in relation to any work that is associated with the new Redcliffs School.

2.1.3   The new Redcliffs School cannot operate without a full safety audit that includes specific consideration of access to the school and speed in the area.  This transport plan works to address this requirement.

2.1.4   There are strong safety benefits in the implementation of the transport plan, as it will ensure that children and parents accessing the school can do this safely and traffic is managed appropriately.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

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

1.        Approve the preferred Option, consisting of the following (in accordance with Attachment A)

a.        Establish a turning restriction, banning the right turn movement from Main Road (from the east) to Beachville Road (to the north/east).

b.        Extend the traffic island at the intersection of Main Road / Beachville Road intersection, as per Attachment A.

c.         Disestablish the bus stop on the south side of Main Road, including the indented bay, (located approximately 70 metres east of McCormacks Bay Road).

d.        Resolve no stopping markings in place of the bus stop (entirely) on the south side of Main Road (approximately 70 metres east of McCormacks Bay Road).

e.        Establish a zebra crossing, to operate as a School patrol crossing, outside of 25-27 Main Road, including kerb build outs.

f.         Remove the zebra crossing opposite the proposed Redcliffs Park (the ‘old School site’).

g.        Construct a refuge island and kerb build outs in place of the zebra crossing, opposite the proposed Redcliffs Park.

h.        Establish a kerb extension and pedestrian crossing refuge island, at the intersection of Beachville Road / Celia Street.

i.          Establish a footpath on Celia Street, between 53 Celia Street and Beachville Road (a distance of approximately 93 metres).

2.        That the Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board recommend to the Council to approve:

a.        A new variable speed limit of 40km/h (School Zone), as per Attachment A:

i.          On Main Road, commencing approximately 42 metres west of the McCormacks Bay Road centre line, for a distance of approximately 480 metres.

ii.         On Beachville Road, from Main Road (at Main Road / Beachville Road/McCormacks Bay Road intersection), to outside 107 Beachville Road; a distance of approximately 320 metres.

iii.        On Celia Street, outside 47 Celia Street to the intersection of Beachville Road/Celia Street; a distance of approximately 140 metres.

iv.        On McCormacks Bay Road for a section of approximately 20m south of Main Road.

b.        Cycle lanes on approaches to proposed zebra crossing and refuge island, in accordance with Attachment A.

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Traffic Safety and Efficiency

·      Level of Service: 10.0.6.1 Reduce the number of casualties on the road network - =129 (reduce by 5 or more per year)

4.2      The following feasible options have been considered:

·      Option 1 – Approve the Redcliffs Transport Plan as per attachment A (preferred).

·      Option 2 – Do not approve the Redcliffs Transport Plan and request staff to consider alternative designs and re-consult with the community.

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·      Meets objectives relating to safety and the design is safety audited.  The outcome of Audit finds no outstanding safety matters.

·      Ensures that effects on the function of the Arterial Road network, including the strategic freight corridor, are limited.

·      Minimum impact on surrounding communities (e.g. no reduction in availability of on street car parking).

·      Achieves financial and legal requirements (outlined below, section 6.32).

·      Designed to be appropriately scaled to meet anticipated needs and demands.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·      It has not been possible to include a crossing point on Main Road in immediate vicinity of site pedestrian access.

4.4      Option Summary – Advantages and Disadvantages (Option 2)

4.4.1   The advantages of this option include:

·      There are no identified advantages at this stage.

4.4.2   The disadvantages of this Option

·      Uncertain that safety objectives would be achieved, and need for revised planning, design and safety auditing.

·      Uncertain that outcome would achieve financial and legal objectives.

·      Uncertain that outcome would be appropriately scaled to meet anticipated needs and demands.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      The Ministry of Education (MoE) are planning to operate a school, initially for approximately 300 pupils (potentially increasing to 400 over time).  The MoE have acquired the former Redcliffs Park site for this purpose, and have been granted resource consent for the project. Following the preferences of Council (7 September 2017), conditions have been included in both the Land Sale Agreement and Resource Consent, that suitable safety remediation works be undertaken in order to ensure safe pedestrian access to the proposed school, with particular focus on Main Road.  Substantial funding has been sought from the MoE, and the design has been undertaken in partnership with the MoE.

5.2      The objectives of the scheme are to enable safe pedestrian access to the proposed school, without compromising the function of the network, including preserving the ‘alternative freight route’ function of Main Road. The design has been safety audited (with a ‘post implementation audit’ to follow) and no outstanding safety concerns are identified. Whilst achieving the objectives, the preferred option is also suitably scaled (in terms of cost and likely effects) to the size of the proposed school, and requires no additional funding from Council over and above pre-existing proposals.

5.3      Several alternative design options have been considered, including a crossing closer to the proposed building access. However, it has not been possible to achieve a crossing which would comply with necessary safe design standards without compromising the Arterial and freight function of Main Road.

5.4      The preferred option achieves the provision of safe walking routes, (integrated with the location of pick up – drop off points) including carefully aligned crossings. Pedestrians will not be required to walk ‘out of their way’ to access a safe crossing, meaning that all pedestrian crossing activity of Main Road are expected to be managed, and within a reduced speed environment. 

5.5      Safety works will continue after implementation of the scheme, to ensure that access to the school operates as intended. A School Travel Plan is to be prepared in partnership between the MoE/Board of Trustees and the Council’s Travel Demand Management Officer, and ensure ongoing dialogue in this space. A post implementation Safety Audit will also be undertaken, and monitoring by Council’s transport team.

Community Consultation

5.6      Community Consultation on the Redcliffs Transport Project was undertaken from 19 November 2018 to 17 December 2018.  The submission form asked submitters to indicate whether: Yes, they supported the traffic changes; or no they did not support the traffic changes.  There was also the opportunity to provide any further comments on the transport plan. (Refer to Attachment B and C for the public information leaflet and submission form).

5.7      A public drop in session was held on Tuesday 27 November from 4 pm to 6 pm at the Redcliffs Mt Pleasant Bowling Club in Redcliffs.  There were 15 residents who attended the drop in session over the two hour period, to find out more information on the project and to drop off their feedback forms.  Generally those who attended supported the transport plan but had some concerns about the increase in traffic on Celia Street and the removal of the bus stop.

5.8      Approximately 150 consultation leaflets were hand delivered to properties surrounding the new Redcliffs School location, including 68 absentee land owners.  A link to the consultation page on ‘Have Your Say’ was also emailed out to 798 key stakeholders (those who participated in the consultation on the new Redcliffs School land swap) and printed copies of the consultation leaflet were made available at the Linwood Service Centre, Civic Offices, Matuku Takotako:  Sumner Centre, Redcliffs Village Library, Redcliffs School and Beckenham Service Centre.

5.9      A Newsline article was also published on the 19 November 2018 and included a link to where online submissions could be made https://ccc.govt.nz/news-and-events/newsline/show/3178

5.10    At the close of consultation 48 submissions were received with 27 (56%) in support of the transport plan, 17 (36%) not in support and 4 (8%) who did not indicate.

Yes - support

No – do not support

6.   Option 1 – Redcliffs Transport plan as per attachment A (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      A package of measures intended to facilitate safe pedestrian and cyclist access to the proposed Redcliffs School site.

Significance

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

6.3      Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with the level of significance for this project.  These activities are included in section 5.2 to 5.5 of this report.

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.

6.5      Mahaanui Kurataiao Limited (MKT) have been provided with all the information on this project.  The project team had not received specific feedback from MKT at the time of writing this report.

Community Views and Preferences

6.6      Local residents surrounding the new Redcliffs School location and those who use the school are specifically affected by this option due to their proximity to the new school and their use of the school.  Their views have been collected as part of the consultation process.

6.7      At the close of consultation 48 submissions were received with 27 (56%) in support of the transport plan.

6.8      The Redcliffs School Board of Trustees support the transport plan, but would prefer the speed limit to reduce to 30 km/h instead of 40 km/h.

6.9      The Ministry of Education also support the transport plan.

6.10    Environment Canterbury support the transport plan, however they do have concerns about the space left between bus stops, in particular with the removal of the bus stop on the corner of Main Road and McCormacks Bay Road.

6.11    The location of other submissions and whether they support the transport plan is available on a on the attached map (refer to Attachments D and E).

6.14    Project team comments in relation to these are as follows (where relevant):

Moving of the zebra crossing

6.15    There were four comments from those who support the transport plan, requesting that the zebra crossing is moved closer to the school.

“We would like to ask that the new zebra crossing is places as close as possible to the school.  Closer than planned would be very much appreciated”.  Submitter ID #20598.

Due to other technical challenges, there isn’t room to locate the crossing directly outside the school gate.  We have instead located is as close as possible, and have also ensured that the location of the crossing suits all users.

School speed zone reduced from 40 km/h to 30 km/h

6.16    There were three comments from those who support the transport plan, requesting that the 40 km/h speed limit is reduced further to 30 km/h and includes all of Celia Street.  There were also two separate comments requesting that the entire length of Celia Street was included in the speed reduction area.

“We would prefer a 30kph rather than 40kph speed limit around the school, including all of Beachville and Celia as these streets will have children crossing to the school all along their lengths.  The evidence is definitive on how much safer for pedestrians 30kph is than 40kph”.  Submittter ID #20583.

The proposed 40km/h limit is cognisant with standard school speed zone treatments around the City; however, the project team will monitor the performance of the school speed zone post implementation, and recommend proposed changes if necessary (noting that these will require special approval from the New Zealand Transport Authority). 

Celia Street already has traffic calming measures in place with the narrowing of the road and installation of the islands.  It is considered as an existing low speed environment.

Do not ban the right turn into Beachville Road

6.17    There were three comments from those who support the transport plan, requesting that the right turn into Beachville Road from Main Road (at the Causeway end) is not banned.

“The proposal to prohibit a right turn into Beachville Road for cars coming from Sumner should be rejected.  It will just increase traffic along Beachville Road and past the school, and is entirely unnecessary”.  Submitter ID #20287.

The main purpose of this plan is to ensure it is safe and the design has been safety audited.  The current space available for right turning traffic will not be enough, and the result will be increased delays on Main Road, as the right turn queue ‘over spills’. Furthermore, the presence of a right turn queue will obstruct pedestrian sight distance at the crossing. Therefore, if the right turn is in place it will create congestion issues on the Arterial Road network and visibility issues for pedestrians using the pedestrian refuge island.

Installation of traffic lights at the Beachville Road and Main Road intersection

6.18    There was one comment from a submitter who supports the transport plan, suggesting a set of signalised traffic lights is installed at the Beachville Road and Main Road intersection (Causeway end).

“I do wonder whether with the extra traffic, whether lights should be installed at this intersection, with pedestrian crossing for school children”.  Submitter ID #20183

Signalised traffic lights were considered for this intersection, but the proposal did not meet the test in relation to demand, cost and network impacts.  The size of the school is not large enough to generate enough traffic to justify the significant cost for signalised lights.  In order for the lights to work appropriately the McCormacks Bay Road and Main Road intersection (opposite Beachville Road) would also require traffic lights, which would also increase the cost and put it well outside the available budget.

Themes relating to those who do not support the Redcliffs Transport Plan

6.19    For those submitters who did not support the transport plan, the common reasons were:

6.20    Project team comments in relation to these are as follows (where relevant).

Concern over increased congestion and traffic issues

6.21    There were four comments from submitters who did not support the transport plan, in relation to the school traffic creating further issues in the area.

“Very concerned about the impact of significant increased traffic on homes and community in narrow Celia and Beachville Roads, congestion, parking and traffic speed.  Neither road was ever intended as a main traffic thoroughfare to and from a school.  Submitter ID #20422.

The transport plan provides three opportunities for accessing the school with either Main Road, Beachville Road or Celia Street, which should split up traffic numbers.  The school is also working on a school travel plan as part of the conditions of the resource consent, this plan will work to actively encourage students to walk or cycle to school instead. 

The Redcliffs Transport Plan will be an improvement to what is currently in place.  The site will also be monitored to ensure that it is working appropriately.

No mention of cyclists in the transport plan

6.22    There were three comments from submitters who did not support the transport plan, as the plan made no mention of cyclists.

“I am concerned about the lack of cycling facilities in this plan.  Main Road and Beachville Road are important cycling connections between Sumner to the east and the rest of Christchurch to the west, and these works would be an excellent opportunity to make safer and more attractive”.  Submitter ID #20605.

Cycle lanes will continue to operate along Main Road as they have done previously.  The Coastal Pathway is also available for some pupils to use.  There is not enough road space to separate the cycleway with separator posts and this route is not a major cycleway route.  We also need to accommodate heavy vehicle trucks, as they will use Main Road again once Sumner Road is re-opened.

Do not support right turn ban from Main Road onto Beachville Road

6.23    There were two comments from submitters who did not support the transport plan, as they do not support the right turn ban from Main Road onto Beachville Road (Causeway end).

“I support everything except the no right turn onto Beachville Road from Main Road – while I think it is a good idea to reduce potential congestion around the new pedestrian crossing, I am worried that it would funnel a significant amount of school traffic down Celia Street.  Celia Street is narrow and not suited to heavy traffic volumes”.  Submitter ID #20400

Please refer to project team comments in section 6.17 of this report.

Speed zone reduced from 40 km/h to 30 km/h

6.24    There were two comments from submitters who did not support the transport plan, as they would like to request the speed zone is changed to 30 km/h.

“I would also support lowering a speed limit to 30 km/h in a school zone rather than 40 km/h.  A lower speed limit will not significantly increase travel time, as it does not affect average speed as much as it affects top speeds, but the security gain for cyclists, particularly children cycling to school, will be worth it”.  Submitter ID #20605

            Please refer to project team comments in section 6.16 of this report.

Request for roundabout installation at the Beachville Road and Main Road intersection

6.25    There was one submitter who did not support the transport plan, who suggested that a roundabout would work better at the Beachville Road and Main Road intersection (Causeway end).

“A safer option would be to realign McCormacks Bay Road slightly so that it lines up more closely with Beachville Road and install a mini roundabout”.  Submitter ID #20207.

There would be a significant cost to install a roundabout at this intersection, as additional land would be required. Given the relatively low turning traffic volumes, compared to non-turning, the level of service for the side roads would not be improved by a roundabout, meaning that the sought after improvements would not be achieved by a roundabout.

Request for traffic lights to be installed at Beachville Road and Main Road intersection

6.26    There was one submitter who did not support the transport plan, who suggested that a set of signalised traffic lights would work better at the Beachville Road and Main Road intersection (Causeway end).

“For the McCormacks Bay/Beachville/Main Road intersections, install lights after the intersection (on the Causeway) to enable pedestrians/cyclist to join the coastal pathway”.  Submitter ID #20338.

Please refer to project team comments in section 6.18 of this report.

Comments from those who did not indicate

6.27    There were four submitters who did not indicate on their submission form whether yes they support the plan or no they do not support the transport plan.  The main comments related to retaining the right turn, increased traffic and congestions concerns and request to reduce the speed limit proposed from 40 km/h to 30 km/h.

The project team comments in relation to these concerns are responded to in section 6.17, 6.21 and 6.16 of this report. 

6.28    In summary, the main themes from all submissions relate to:

Description

The final plan to be approved now specifically marks out the cycle lanes.

 

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.29    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies, including the Land Sale Sub Committee’s recommendations adopted by Council on 7 September 2017.

Financial Implications

6.30    Cost of Implementation: $396,841

6.31    The following funding streams:

6.31.1 $183,000 received from the Ministry of Education

6.31.2 $213,841 programmed through the Master Plan ‘Main Road M3 Beachville Road Streetscape enhancements’

Legal Implications

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

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

6.34    The legal consideration is that the proposal:

6.34.1 Enables conditions of Resource Consent to be enacted, agreed within the framework of resource Management Act s176, namely that:

“The school shall not commence operation at the new site until a full safety audit is undertaken in accordance with “Road Safety Audit Procedures for Projects: Guidelines”, NZTA May 2013, with particular consideration given to:

Pedestrian crossing location and design for school pupils crossing Main Road to the school; and

The design of the Main Road/Beachville intersection; and

Vehicle Speeds in the vicinity of the school”.

6.34.2 The design safety audit has been completed, and a post-implementation safety audit will also be completed.                    

6.34.3 Meets the Conditions of Land Sale, with regards to the delivery of road safety measures and financial contributions towards the Project paid by the Ministry of Education:

"The Crown agrees to pay to the Council a minimum of $183,000 towards new traffic management and pedestrian safety systems, such sum to be paid on the Settlement Date."

Risks and Mitigations

6.35    There is a risk to the Ministry of Education’s project in the event that the proposed Part C matters are not resolved. 

Implementation and dependencies

6.36    Approval of Part A matters by Council, including Cycle lanes, and inclusion of the temporary (School zone) speed limit.

6.37    Implementation of the temporary (school zone) speed limit must proceed in accordance with section 2.5 and 2.6 of the ‘Land Transport Rule Setting of Speed Limits (2017)’. Consultation with the Community Board and Community meets the requirements of the rule. Subject to Community Board approval, formal approval will be sought from the additional parties identified in the rule, including NZTA and Police. The proposed scheme meets the technical requirements for a school speed zone.

6.38    Option 1 would be constructed from mid-2019, in time for the proposed School opening currently scheduled for January 2020.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.39    The advantages of this option include:

·   Meets objectives relating to safety; and design is safety audited. Outcome of Audit finds no outstanding safety matters.

·   Ensures that effects on the function of the Arterial Road network, including the strategic freight corridor, are limited.

·   Minimum impact on surrounding communities (e.g. no reduction in availability of on street car parking).

·   Achieves financial and legal requirements (outlined below, section 6.32).

·   Designed to be appropriately scaled to meet anticipated needs and demands.

·   Developed in partnership with the NZTA and Traffic Engineering Consultants, and considered the ‘best’ option, optimising costs and impacts, in light of an array of other design options.

6.40    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It has not been possible to include a crossing on Main Road in the immediate vicinity of the school entrance.

7.   Option 2 – Do not approve the Redcliffs Transport Plan and request staff to consider alternative designs and re-consult with the community.

Option Description

7.1      Do not adopt the preferred option; adopt alternative designs.

Significance

7.2      The level of significance of this option could be high due to the Legal Implications (see paragraph 7.12).

7.3      Engagement requirements for this level of significance are to Consult (as defined within the Significance and Engagement Policy).

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      Local residents surrounding the new Redcliffs School location and those who use the school are specifically affected by this option due to their proximity to the new school and their use of the school.  Their views would need to be collected and considered again if a completely new traffic design was created.

7.6      At the close of consultation 48 submissions were received with 17 (36%) not in support.  However, there were no submitters who indicated that a transport plan was not required at all and that staff should do nothing.  Those who did not support the plan did acknowledge that changes need to be made to accommodate the new Redcliffs School location.

7.7      Alignment with Council Plans and Policies.

7.8      This option is likely to be inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

7.8.1   Inconsistency – Does not respond to the Hearing Panel’s recommendations made to Council (7th September 2017) for a school speed zone ‘pedestrian safety systems that may be required’.

7.8.2   Amendment necessary – an alternative scheme could possibly meet requirements approved by Council.

Financial Implications

7.9      Cost of Implementation - Unknown

7.10    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Unknown

7.11    Funding source – Unknown

Legal Implications

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

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

7.14    The legal consideration is that under Option 2:

7.14.1 The Ministry of Education cannot enact Conditions of Resource Consent, and henceforth would be unable to operate a school without being in breach of conditions.

Risks and Mitigations

7.15    Given uncertainty of Option 2, there is a risk that technical, financial and legal requirements would not be met. The ability of the Ministry of Education to deliver the proposed school, within the purview of its Conditions of Consent, would be uncertain.

Implementation

7.16    Implementation dependencies – unknown.

7.17    Implementation timeframe – unknown.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.18    The advantages of this option include:

·   No known advantages at this stage.

7.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Legal risks: The MoE would be unable to proceed with the proposed school, until such time that an alternative design was found to meet requirements of Conditions of Consent.

·   Financial: There are no known sources of funding for alternative designs at this stage, especially those pertaining to more expensive options.

It is unlikely that options of greater expense (for example, traffic signals at Main Road/Beachville Road/McCormacks Bay Road) would be appropriately scaled to demand, forecast growth and unlikely to achieve value for money against any of the funding criteria.

4.1.1   Address the downstream effects relating to traffic arising from the operation of the Christchurch Northern Corridor.

4.1.2   Engage an Independent Traffic Expert to recommend appropriate traffic mitigation measures in the form of a Management Plan

4.1.3   Engage with affected owners and occupiers (as identified in the Plan) and specified persons/groups regarding the Independents Expert’s recommendations

4.1.4   Carry out ongoing monitoring and identify the anticipated future increase in traffic as a result of the Christchurch Northern Corridor.

4.1.5   Carry out any recommended traffic mitigation measures if traffic volumes are anticipated to increase by over 30% on any street. Council will need to implement mitigation measures as soon as reasonably practicable and in accordance with the timeframes required by the Consent.

4.2      At the request of the Independent Traffic Expert Council staff have completed a first phase of community engagement to understand community concerns about expected increased traffic growth and potential traffic mitigation measures. The findings from this engagement have fed into the attached draft Downstream Effects Mitigation Plan that has been prepared by the Independent Traffic Expert.

4.   Community Board Plan – Update against Outcomes

4.1      The Board held a workshop on Monday 28 January which included discussion on the Community Board Plan.

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

5.1      Infrastructure projects underway

Linwood Pool

5.1.1   On Saturday 8 December from 1 pm to 4 pm at Linwood Park, the community were invited to view the layout of the new Linwood Pool and to comment on some future changes to improve Linwood Park.

5.1.2   The plans were also available online for comment for those who were unable to attend the community day https://ccc.govt.nz/the-council/consultations-and-submissions/haveyoursay/show/203

5.1.3   A Newsline Story was also available on 10 December 2018 and provided further information on the draft layout https://ccc.govt.nz/news-and-events/newsline/show/3247

5.1.4   There were around 300 people who came along to the community day, this included a lot of local families and some of the local sporting groups.

5.1.5   A specific area was set up at the event for people to come along and view large plans along the fenced area of the tennis courts and this also included draft plans of improvements to the rest of Linwood Park.  The design team were also present at the community day, so it provided a good opportunity for them to get some direct community feedback and to explain each design element.  (Attachment C)

5.1.6   Feedback from those who attended the community day was very positive and people were really happy with the sketches.  The less positive comments related to requests for items such as a gym, wave pool and hydro slide which were well outside the project budget for this facility and could be provided for more appropriately at other Council facilities.  Council also received 17 online submissions.  (Attachment D)

5.1.7   The development plans for Linwood Park have a limited amount of funding, so these will need to be worked on in more detail before they are ready to go out for more formal consultation.  The timings for the pool and park will not quite run together now, but it was helpful to get some initial feedback on the park at the community day.  This information will be incorporated in the landscape plan when it is ready to go out.

5.1.8   The project team are continuing to engage directly with some of the key stakeholders on this project.

5.1.9   The gifting of Te Reo name for the facility has been requested via Council’s Ngai Tahu partnership team, the name will feed into the cultural design input that Matapopore have been engaged to provide.

5.1.10 Geotechnical investigations and analysis has been completed and while results were variable they have confirmed ground improvement will be required.  Given the potential significance of this aspect, further investigations will be undertaken to gather additional data to inform the design.

5.1.11 The next steps for this project will involve commencing and completing the concept design.  Community feedback on the draft layout will be incorporated into the concept design as it progresses, where appropriate.  This plan will then be presented to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board for approval sometime in May 2019.  Construction is then due to commence in 2020. 

5.1.12 A process for ongoing communication with the community is being developed.

5.2      Ōpāwa Library – Staff presented to a Board workshop held on 3 December 2018 regarding the selection of the construction contractor for the rebuild Ōpāwa Library.

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

6.1      Community Board Edible Garden Awards 2019 - The inaugural Linwood-Central-Heathcote Edible Garden Awards applications are closing on 8 February 2019.  The award ceremony is to be held on Thursday 7 March at the Woolston Club.  The gardens will be assessed on the week of 18 February 2019.  The Horticultural Society is seeking Board members to join the judging panel.
