7.     Notice of Motion

Reference:

19/867324

Presenter(s):

Helene Mautner, Community Board Member

 

 

Pursuant to Standing Order 22 of Christchurch City Council’s Standing Orders, the following Notice of Motion was submitted by Helene Mautner.

 

1.   Notice of Motion to the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board

Notice of Motion

The Spreydon Cashmere Community Board requests that the Christchurch City Council recognises the values of the riparian margins of our rivers and waterways as part of its strategic priority on safe sustainable water supply and waterways, and investigates the implementation of riparian margin measures directed at the eradication of weeds and the prevention of weed spread through the ecological restoration of the  riparian margins  by densely planting competitive native plants, and reducing mowing and cutting of margins to prevent active spread of seeds.

Background

Invasive weeds are spreading through our local waterways replacing natural species and changing its ecological balance.  Once weeds are established their eradication becomes problematic and expensive to remove.  Riparian margins play an important role in maintaining healthy waterways by acting as natural barriers to weeds, by minimising bank erosion when established with dense competitive native plants, protecting ecosystems, and enhancing water quality. 

The spread of weeds is exacerbated where:

•  There are plant gaps in the riparian margins.

•  Banks are mowed and cut; these activities can create gaps for colonisation and spread the seeds of weeds.

•  Some maintenance and eradication procedures can actually accelerate the spread of invasive weeds, e.g., cutting of weeds may release clumps into the water which then travel to other areas where they spread re-establishing themselves. 

Establishing riparian margins with dense competitive native plants benefits the local natural ecology by

•  being barriers to weed invasion;

•  reducing maintenance, restoration and eradication costs;

•  enhancing the river’s ecological values;

•  creating and enabling healthy and productive habitats for aquatic life;

•  reducing bank erosion; and

•  reclaiming the New Zealand cultural identity of our waterways.

 

 

 

 

Desired Outcomes

The reduction of invasive weeds in our waterways through ecological riparian margin management:

•  Riparian margins densely planted with competitive native plants to create barriers to weed invasion.

•  Weed eradication programs to prevent the spread of weeds and to reduce maintenance and restoration costs.

•  Reduction of weeds enhances the natural values of the waterways.

•  Weed reduction enhances the natural biodiversity of the waterways.

•  Reduces bank erosion.

That the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board request that the Christchurch City Council recognised the values of the riparian margins of our rivers and waterways as part of its strategic priority on safe sustainable water supply and waterways, and investigates the implementation of riparian margin measures directed at the eradication of weeds and the prevention of weed spread through the ecological restoration of the riparian margins by densely planting competitive native plants , and reducing mowing and cutting of the margins to prevent active spread of seeds.

 

Background

Invasive weeds are spreading through our local waterways replacing natural species and changing its ecological balance.  Once weeds are established their eradication becomes problematic and expensive to remove.  Riparian margins play and important role in maintaining healthy waterways by acting as natural barriers to weeds, by minimising bank erosion when established with dense competitive native plants, protecting ecosystems, and enhancing water quality.

The spread of weeds is exacerbated where:

·   There are plant gaps in the riparian margins

·   Banks are moved and cut: these activities can create gaps for colonisation and spread the seeds of weeds

·   Some maintenance and eradication procedures can actually accelerate the spread of invasive weeds, e.g., cutting of weeds may release clumps into the water which then travel to other areas where the spread, re-establishing themselves.

Establishing riparian margins with dense competitive native plants benefits the local natural ecology by:

·   Being barriers to weed invasion

·   Reducing maintenance, restoration and eradication costs:

·   Enhancing and enabling healthy and productive habitats for aquatic life;

·   Reclaiming the New Zealand cultural identity of our waterways

Desired Outcomes

·   The reduction in invasive weeds in our waterways through ecological riparian margin management:

·   Riparian margins densely planted with competitive native plants to create barriers to weed invasion.

·   Weed eradication programs to prevent the spread of weeds and to reduce maintenance and restoration costs.

·   Reduction of weeds enhances the natural values of the waterways

·   Weed reduction enhances the natural biodiversity of the waterways.

·   Reduces bank erosion

9.     Spreydon-Cashmere: Proposed Bus Passenger Shelter Installations

Reference:

19/787840

Presenter(s):

Brenda O’Donoghue, Passenger Transport Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board to consider for approval the installation of two bus passenger shelters at existing bus stops located within the governance area of the Community Board.

2.   Executive Summary

2.1       This report is staff generated. The bus stop locations chosen by staff for shelters to be installed, are typically the bus stops where the average weekday passenger boardings meet a demand threshold of more than 20 people boarding a bus per weekday. This means staff are targeting the bus stops that are most used by people accessing public transport.

2.2       The proposed bus passenger shelters associated with this report have received no objection by the owner or occupier of the adjacent properties.

2.3       The relevant Community Board for the area that the proposed shelters are to be located, have the delegated authority to approve the installation of the proposed shelters.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve the installation of a bus passenger shelter at the following locations:

a.         174 Centaurus Road (in accordance with Attachment A)

b.         61 Cashmere Road (in accordance with Attachment B)

 

4.   Key points

4.1       The recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Service Plan for Public Transport Infrastructure in the Councils Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028)

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Install two bus passenger shelters at existing bus stops (preferred option, refer to Attachment A to B)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing, no shelters are installed.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Protection from the weather,

·     Seating provided within the shelter, and

·     Increase the visibility and legibility of public transport.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Increase in the number of bus passenger shelters to be maintained by the Council.

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A bus passenger shelter is proposed for the bus stop locations presented in this report, due to the average weekday passenger boardings (ave. pax/weekday) meeting the demand threshold of more than 20 daily passenger boardings per weekday, as indicated in the following list.

·   44 ave.pax/weekday: 174 Centaurus Road

·   41 ave.pax/weekday: 61 Cashmere Road

5.2       The location of the bus stops, and hence the proposed shelters, relative to their surrounding locality, is indicated in the following figures.

Figure 1: Bus stop by 174 Centaurus Road

Figure 2: Bus stop by 61 Cashmere Road

5.3       Council staff propose to install a shelter at the locations outlined in the attached bus passenger shelter plans (refer to Attachments A to B). 

5.4       Environment Canterbury (ECan) is responsible for providing public transport services.  The Christchurch City Council is responsible for providing public transport infrastructure.  The installation of the shelters are supported by ECan.

5.5       Under Section 339 of the Local Government Act 1974, the Council may erect on the footpath of any road, a shelter for use by intending public transport passengers or small passenger service vehicle passengers provided that no such shelter may be erected so as to unreasonably prevent access to any land having a frontage to the road.  The Council is required to give notice in writing to the occupier and owner of property likely to be injuriously affected by the erection of the shelter, and shall not proceed with the erection of the shelter until after the expiration of the time for objecting against the proposal or, in the event of an objection, until after the objection has been determined.

5.6       Staff confirm the shelters will not prevent vehicular or pedestrian access to any land having a frontage to the road.

5.7       Consultation has been carried out with the affected properties.  The consultation period for the proposed shelters occurred from Tuesday 15 January 2019 to Tuesday 12 February 2019. Only a shelter where the owner or occupier of the adjacent property has provided feedback indicating no objection or where there was no response received to the consultation is included within this report.  Further information about the bus passenger shelter consultation can be found in Section 7.

Strategic Alignment

5.8       All recommendations in this report, except for “Option 2 – Do nothing” supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

5.8.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.4 Improve user satisfaction of public transport facilities. - >=7.3

5.9       Council’s strategic framework is a key consideration in guiding the recommendations in this report. The recommendations in this report help achieve the community outcome of a well-connected and accessible city through improved satisfaction of public transport facilities for people who choose to undertake their commute by public transport.

Decision Making Authority

5.10    The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of bus passenger shelters.

5.11    Where no objection to the shelter has been presented by the owner or occupier of an affected property, staff present a decision making report directly to the relevant Community Board.

5.12    Where an objection has been presented by the owner or occupier of an affected property, staff present a decision making report to a hearings panel, who will then make recommendations to the Community Board. The Community Board will then determine the outcome of the objections in accordance with section 339 of the Local Government Act.

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

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

5.14    The level of significance was determined by consideration of the criteria set out in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy and the requirements as set out in section 339 of the Local Government Act:

5.14.1 The section 339 Local Government Act requirements for engagement are “The council shall give notice in writing of its proposal to erect any shelter under this section to the occupier and, if he is not also the owner, to the owner of any land the frontage of which is likely to be injuriously affected by the erection of the shelter”.

5.15    The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflects the significance and engagement assessment.

 

6.   Options Analysis

Options Considered

6.1       The following options were considered and are presented for consideration in this report:

·   Option 1 – Install two bus passenger shelters at existing bus stops (refer to Attachment A-B)

·   Option 2 – Do nothing, no shelters are installed.

Options Descriptions

6.2       Preferred Option: Option 1 – Install two bus passenger shelters at existing bus stops

6.2.1   Option Description: Install two bus passenger shelters at the following bus stops:

·     174 Centaurus Road

·     61 Cashmere Road

6.2.2   The proposed bus passenger shelter to be installed at the two bus stops will be a council shelter type.  The image below is an example of what the shelter is likely to look like.

Figure 3: Example of shelter type

6.2.3   Option Advantages

·     Protection from the weather,

·     Seating provided within the shelter, and

·     Increase the visibility and legibility of public transport.

6.2.4   Option Disadvantages

·     Increase in the number of bus passenger shelters to be maintained by the Council.

6.3       Option 2 – Do nothing, no bus passenger shelters are installed. 

6.3.1   Option Description: No bus passenger shelters are installed at the locations identified in section 3 of this report.

6.3.2   Option Advantages

·     Option 2 has no clear advantages.

6.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·     It is inconsistent with the Council's Plans and Policies.

Analysis Criteria

6.4       Staff assess each site based on the statutory requirement as set out in section 339 of the Local Government Act: “The council may erect on the footpath of any road a shelter for use by intending public-transport passengers or small passenger service vehicle passengers, provided that no such shelter may be erected so as to unreasonably prevent access to any land having a frontage to the road

6.5       Staff undertake geometric, road safety and bus stop best practice design assessments for each proposed shelter location. Examples of this include:

·   The shelter will not restrict nearby driveway or intersection sightlines.

·   The shelter can be located at an appropriate location relative to the bus stop, which makes it a logical place for passengers to wait within the shelter.

·   That a 1.5 metre (minimum) continuous accessible path of travel for pedestrian movement is maintained in front of the shelter.

·   Does not adversely impact the underground utilities.

·   Determine if other existing bus stop infrastructure needs to be relocated to ensure the location is accessible to the people who use the bus stop as well as the people who walk past the bus stop.

·   Determine if other accessibility and operational improvements are needed to be made to optimise the usability of the bus stop, for example extending the footpath to the kerb to ensure there is a hardstand for customers boarding or exiting the bus, or marking the bus stop to the recommended bus stop length.

Options Considerations

6.6       Option 1 is consistent with the Council’s approved Service Plan for Public Transport Infrastructure (2018-2028)

6.7       Option 2, the “Do Nothing” option is inconsistent with the Council’s approved Service Plan for Public Transport Infrastructure (2018-2028):

6.7.1   Inconsistency – The “Do Nothing” option does not support improved user satisfaction of public transport facilities. 

6.7.2   Reason for inconsistency – Passengers are not provided with shelter when waiting for a bus

6.8       Amendment necessary – Install bus passenger shelters as per Options 1 of this report.

7.   Community Views and Preferences

7.1       The properties listed below are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed shelter. The consultation period for the proposed shelters occurred from Tuesday 15 January 2019 to Tuesday 12 February 2019. The consultation notice and a feedback form were delivered by hand to each property listed, requesting the owners or occupiers’ feedback to the proposed bus passenger shelter at the bus stop outside the property they own or occupy.  The consultation information was posted by mail to absentee owners. 

·   174 Centaurus Road, and

·   61a Cashmere Road

7.2       The owner of 174 Centaurus Road has provided feedback indicating no objection to the shelter proposal. The tenant of 174 Centaurus Road has provided feedback indicating no object to the proposal, but that Council should maintain the grassed berm to the south of the shelter. The Council does not maintain grassed berms, however a small section of asphalt can be included to the south of the shelter to expand the waiting area for customers and limit the impact of shading on the grassed berm to the south of the shelter.

7.3       The owner of 61a Cashmere Road provided feedback indicating no objection to the shelter proposal.

8.   Legal Implications

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

8.2       This specific report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit however the report has been written using a general approach previously approved of by the Legal Services Unit, and the recommendations are consistent with the policy and legislative framework outlined in the Decision Making Authority section of this report.

9.   Risks

9.1       Should the Community Board proceed with the ‘Do Nothing’ option, the existing passenger waiting facilities remain, leading to no improvement to the level of service for passengers waiting for a bus. This may reduce patronage on wet days, as passengers may choose another mode of travel as there is no shelter provided at the bus stop.

10. Next Steps

10.1    Approval is required by Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board.

10.2    If approved, the recommendations will be implemented approximately two months of the Community Board approval.

4.4       Event seeking support for: National Big Sing Finale 2019, Dunedin, 28 August - 1 September

4.5       Madison Jane Fortune is a Year 12 pupil of Villa Maria College, and a member of the school’s Con Brio Choir which has been successful as one of 24 choirs selected from auditions by over 800 others to be able to participate in the Big Sing finale competition in Dunedin. The Big Sing is a national group-singing competition for secondary school students, organised by the New Zealand Choral Federation. Regional festivals are held in June each year where nationally appointed adjudicators critique performances and select  the choirs that will proceed to the Finale to compete for bronze, silver, gold and platinum awards. This is the fifth time that the Con Brio choir has been selected through the regional competitions, and will join two other Canterbury-West Coast region choirs. The school’s 20 member Vivace Choir also qualified for the Finale, however as there is an overlap of members between the two choirs, the Vivace Choir will not compete in Dunedin. A total of 51 students and five staff members will attend.

4.6       Madison has been participating in the choir at Villa Maria College for four years. Last year Madison mainly sang second soprano, and sings first soprano this year. Practises are held for 45 minutes every Wednesday, Thursdays at lunch time, with some weekend workshops, and Madison also practises at home for at least one hour per week. Madison has learned jazz dancing at the Impact Dance and Stage School since the age of four and has reached the intermediate grade two stage, with the exam pending in August. Last year she also undertook tap dancing and achieved honours in her exam. Another involvement has been choir performance in musical theatre productions for the past two years that are jointly produced by Villa Maria College and St Thomas of Canterbury College.

4.7       Madison’s favourite subject at school is art design, for which she has so far obtained all her credits at excellence level. Future ambitions include achieving “cultural captain” for her house next year, and one day going to poorer countries in a volunteer role. Out of school Madison likes to send time with her friends and family.

4.8       The choir members, including Madison, will collectively fund-raise for the event by participating in sausage sizzles, singing and busking, raffles and cake stalls. The main group fund-raiser will be the Showcase Concert performance on 22 August.

4.9       Madison has not previously applied to the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board’s Youth Achievement and Development Scheme or to any other Community Board Youth Development Fund.
