7.   9 Cathedral Square - Structures on Roads Proposal

 

Committee Decided ITEC/2019/00018

Part A

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee recommends that the Council:

1.         Notes that the proposal is inconsistent with the Policy for Structures on Roads 2010.

a.         The inconsistency is detailed as follows:

i.          Paragraph 2.2 of the Policy requires that the horizontal projection not be more than one metre.

ii.         Paragraph 3.3 of the Policy requires that all foundations be built within the private lot.

iii.        Paragraph 3.5 (i) requires that there be no other practicable option available.

b.         The reason for the inconsistency is that the proposal has a canopy that projects more than one metre, the supporting columns and their foundations project into legal road and there is no other practical options available.

c.         Due to the ‘one-off’ nature of the application, there is no intention to amend the Policy to accommodate the decision.

2.         Approve the application to encroach on the legal road at 9 Cathedral Square and as land owners to authorise the construction of the canopy, poles and column foundations on the area shown in Attachment A.

3.         Approve the granting of a Deed of Licence to allow the encroachment of the legal road at 9 Cathedral Square for a term of up to a maximum of 35 years and at a market licence fee determined by a registered valuer appointed by the Council. In addition to the annual licence fee the licensee would be required to pay the extra tree maintenance costs arising from the proposal.

4.         Require as part of the Deed of Licence the preparation of a Tree Protection and Management Plan by the owners of 9 Cathedral Square in respect of the three street trees on the Square, and the licensee’s compliance with that plan.

Councillor Buck/Councillor Clearwater                                                                                                         Carried

Councillor Davidson abstained from voting on this item.

Councillor Buck left the meeting at 2:30 p.m.

8.   Biodiversity Fund Project Applications

 

Committee Resolved ITEC/2019/00019

Part C

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee:

1.         Receive the information in the report.

2.         Approve funding for the two recommended projects as listed below:

a.         $16,226 for Tirowaikare, Little River

b.         $40,000 for Big Hill, Little Akaloa

Councillor Keown/Councillor Davidson                                                                                                         Carried

 

Councillor Keown left the meeting at 3:00 p.m. during the discussion on item 9.

9.   Three Waters and Waste report - February/March

 

Committee Resolved ITEC/2019/00020

Part C

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee:

1.         Receive the information in the Three Waters and Waste February/March report.

Councillor Davidson/Councillor Templeton                                                                                                 Carried

 

 


 

 

12. Resolution to Include Supplementary Reports

Councillor Cotter/Councillor Davidson                                                                                                          Carried

 

 

13. Correspondence - Labelling Streams on Banks Peninsula

 

Committee Comment

The Committee discussed the idea of labelling streams and queried whether it would be worthwhile to also include information along walking tracks and throughout Christchurch City. The Committee added a third resolution regarding this.

 

Committee Resolved ITEC/2019/00022

Part C

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee:

1.         Receive the correspondence from the Banks Peninsula Water Management Zone Committee regarding labelling streams on Banks Peninsula, as set out in Attachment A.

2.         Requests Council staff to report back to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee on the matters raised in the correspondence.

3.         Requests Council staff to investigate including information about waterways on walking tracks and in Christchurch City.

CONFIRMED THIS 12TH DAY OF JUNE 2019

7.     Biodiversity Fund Project Applications

Reference:

19/571909

Presenter(s):

 

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to recommend the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee approve Biodiversity Fund support to four projects.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee:

1.         Receive the information in the report.

2.         Approve full funding to the following three projects, to provide certainty to landowners and facilitate timely completion of proposed works.

a.         $9,090 for Head of the Harbour - fencing

b.         $39,986 for Stencliffe Farm - fencing

c.         $40,000 for Island Bay – fencing and pest mammal control

3.         Allocate remainder of funding to one of the following two projects, which are highly likely to be feasible with a slightly reduced contribution from the Council.

a.         $35,000 for Jubilee Stream – fencing

b.         $35,000 for Edwards Stream - fencing

 

3.   Key points

3.1       The Christchurch Biodiversity Fund supports custodians of biodiversity working on ecologically significant sites. Council provides up to 50% of funding (maximum of $40,000 per individual project/property per year), for eligible projects aimed at protecting and enhancing biodiversity on private land. Up to $200,000 may be allocated each year.

3.2       Previous funding rounds for the 2018-2019 financial year have allocated a total of $79,300 across four projects.

3.3       The total funding requested through eligible applications received in this financial year was $294,276 - well beyond the total funding available ($200,000). This indicates strong landowner interest in the fund.

3.4       Staff have worked with applicants to determine which can defer their applications until the 2019-2020 financial year or apply to alternative sources of funding.

3.5       All applications recommended for funding are considered to meet Fund criteria.

3.6       Staff note that the Jubilee Stream project involves a landowner who owns another property involved in a compliance matter regarding vegetation clearance. The substantial ecological benefits of the project warrant recommending it for support, but a lower-priority project is included to provide a potential alternative.

3.7       The projects recommended for funding are described in the attachment.

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1       The Biodiversity Fund is an opportunity to support private landowners who are taking voluntary action, and investing their own time and money, to protect and enhance biodiversity on their properties. The projects provide real protection for biodiversity in the Christchurch District through direct action.

Decision Making Authority

4.2       Authority to consider and approve applications to the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund has been delegated to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee.

Strategic Alignment

4.3       The Christchurch Biodiversity Fund is provided for in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan, and is aligned with the Council’s strategic framework.

4.4       The programme aligns with the strategic framework’s supporting principles of collaboration and stewardship, by supporting individual landowners to protect and enhance biodiversity on private land.

4.5       The programme aligns with the Healthy Environment Community Outcome. Specifically, the Biodiversity Fund supports the “unique landscapes and indigenous biodiversity are valued” outcome, by contributing to the protection of indigenous species and ecosystems, and by supporting landowners who are working to look after biodiversity on their own properties.

4.6       The programme aligns with District Plan policies regarding the protection of ecologically significant sites, and the provision of advice and incentives for landowners who wish to do this on private property.

4.7       The programme supports the goals of the Council’s Biodiversity Strategy.

8.     Gloucester Street Enliven Places Project, Transitional Streetscape Amenity and Pedestrian Improvements.

Reference:

19/557065

Presenter(s):

Katie Smith, Senior Urban Regeneration Advisor
Michael Thomson, Transport Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       To seek approval to install temporary pedestrian amenity improvements, including seating, cycle stands and informal pedestrian crossing point build-outs along the section of Gloucester Street between Manchester St and Colombo St. For details, refer to Attachment A.

2.   Executive Summary

2.1       Gloucester St is an important point of convergence for pedestrians moving from Victoria Square, the Performing Arts Precinct, Margaret Mahy Playground and New Regent Street towards Cathedral Junction, Press Lane, Tūranga, Cathedral Square, and the Retail Precinct (see attached flow diagram Attachment B). Given the ongoing construction works around the Convention Centre and the Cathedral it is essential that safe, legible and interesting pedestrian routes throughout the Central City are formed.

2.2       Currently the only formal crossing points along this portion of Gloucester St are at the intersections with Colombo St and Manchester St, yet many people cross informally outside the Isaac Theatre Royal, Tūranga and between Cathedral Junction and New Regent Street.

2.3       The project will encourage slower vehicle speeds and improve wayfinding and the amenity of the pedestrian environment.  The project is expected to be in place for approximately 5 years, ahead of permanent street renewal works.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee Recommends that the Council:

1.         Approves the proposed Enliven Places temporary pedestrian amenity improvement project on Gloucester Street between Colombo and Manchester streets as outlined on Attachment A.

 

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1       A Gloucester St transitional project was initiated in 2012 and enhanced further in 2014.  The aims were to strengthen the connection between Cathedral Square and New Regent St, support businesses along the street and celebrate the city’s heritage reflected in New Regent St and the Isaac Theatre Royal. The project included the installation of the Outdoor Reading Room (oversized green chairs), tree planters and the re-alignment and colourful painting of the carriageway to narrow the street and calm traffic.

4.2       In the subsequent years there have been several modifications made to the transitional project. The Central City Library/Tūranga worksite required the removal of the Outdoor Reading Room, several planters and the covering of street painting to accommodate a temporary traffic management layout. The remaining planters reached the end of their life and have been removed.  All other transitional assets have been removed, including the transitional paint surface treatment. The build out outside Isaac Theatre Royal, has been retained.

4.3       Gloucester St is an important point of convergence for pedestrians. Given the ongoing construction works around the Convention Centre and the upcoming reinstatement of the Cathedral it is essential that safe, legible and interesting pedestrian routes are formed throughout the Central City. Currently the only formal crossing points along this portion of Gloucester St are at the intersections with Colombo St and Manchester St, yet many people cross Gloucester St informally.

4.4       With the completion of:

·   Road resurfacing and paving outside Tūranga on Gloucester St

·   An Accessible City (ACC) works on Manchester St (which involved re-sealing the first 20m of Gloucester St west of Manchester St intersection)

·   Resealing of the remainder of Gloucester St that required repairs

·   New vehicle lane and parking space road marking

the street is now in a suitable condition that it is not expected to require further works for a number of years. Permanent streetscape design and works are not programmed in the LTP.

4.5       This Enliven Places project will, in the interim, work to make Gloucester St a pleasant and functional street for approximately the next 5 years while also trialling and testing new ideas for improved pedestrian safety and to create a slow street that better reflects the existing 30km/h Central City speed limit. 

4.6       In addition, the future role of Gloucester Street in complementing the planned Cathedral Square improvement works programme and providing a southern boundary to the Performing Arts Precinct, may point to future opportunities to consider the speed regime further.  The proposed works aim to support a low speed, self-explaining road environment. The proposed interventions will therefore include temporary pedestrian crossings, seating build-outs and cycle stands as shown on the attached plan, Attachment A.

4.7       The proposal shows two seating build-outs and two crossing build-outs.  Crossing build-outs can only be installed where there is a corresponding dropped kerb or crossing build-out to provide level pedestrian access. This can only be achieved in two locations therefore the two seating build-outs are provided in other locations to enhance the street scene and slow traffic.

4.8       The proposed layout will require the relocation of one parking space on the north side of Gloucester Street opposite Tūranga to accommodate one of the proposed pedestrian crossing build outs.  A location just to the east of this existing space has been identified as an alternative parking space by utilising road space adjacent to an unused vehicular crossing and therefore once additional road markings have been undertaken this will result in no net loss of parking provision along Gloucester Street.

4.9       On 3 April 2019 the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee approved the existing parking and stopping restrictions on both sides of Gloucester St within this section between Colombo and Manchester streets. This approval confirmed the short term parking outside the theatre, mobility parks, cycle parking area, no stopping and other short term parking including loading zones.  All transitional elements of the proposed Enliven Places Project with the exception of the proposed crossing point on the north side of Gloucester Street opposite Tūranga were approved at this meeting.  Further details of the proposed cycle stands were requested and these will be provided when a further report is taken back to the sub-committee.

4.10    If the Council approved the preferred option a further report to the Parking Restrictions Sub-committee will be submitted to approve this minor change in parking layout.

Strategic Alignment

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

4.11.1 Activity: Strategic Planning and Policy

·     Level of Service: 17.0.20.2 Place-based policy and planning advice to support integrated urban regeneration and planning - Working collaboratively with Community Boards (and in light of Community Board plans), DCL, RC and others, identify and address priority areas for CCC

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

4.12    The decision in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

4.13    The level of significance was determined by the limited impact of the proposed seating and crossing build-outs and cycle parking on the street and surrounding businesses.

 

5.   Options Analysis

Options Considered

5.1       The following reasonably practicable options were considered and are assessed in this report:

·   Undertake the Enliven Places project to enhance the pedestrian environment along Gloucester St by installing temporary seating and crossing build-outs and installation of new cycle parking facilities.

·   Do nothing.

Options Descriptions

5.2       Preferred Option: Undertake the Enliven Places project to enhance the pedestrian environment along Gloucester St.

5.2.1   Option Description: Installation of temporary seating and crossing build-outs and new cycle parking facilities.

5.2.2   Option Advantages

·     Trialling and testing can be undertaken in a low key, low cost way to determine if improving the amenity and slowing the vehicle movements is viable, to inform future planning, design and function of this street.

5.2.3   Option Disadvantages

·     Will result in one parking space being relocated within the current street layout.

5.3       Do nothing.

5.3.1   Option Description: Retain current street layout.

5.3.2   Option Advantages

·     None identified.

5.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·     Does not address or improve the pedestrian environment and cycle facilities.

 

6.   Community Views and Preferences

6.1       This Enliven Places project is partly in response to community requests for improved cycle facilities.  The proposal will result in only minor changes to the existing street layout with no net loss of parking spaces. Informal consultation to date with the Isaac Theatre Royal has indicated support and further consultation is planned.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1       There is not a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision other than those already addressed and approved by the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee.

8.   Risks

8.1       The proposed scheme has undergone a safety audit that has made recommendations that have been taken on board in the final design and location of the build-outs and cycle parking.

9.   Next Steps

9.1       Council approval.

9.2       Parking Restrictions Sub-committee approval.
