10. Wilsons Road South - No stopping and right turn restrictions

 

 

Board Comment

1.         The Board expressed its concern about the safety of the measures proposed. It noted, in particular that the size and location of the proposed median island would not act as a physical barrier to prevent vehicles turning right from Wilsons Road into the shopping complex. At the same time the Board was concerned that pedestrians may opt to cross Wilsons Road at the median island rather than the further away pedestrian crossing and this would give rise to a significant safety hazard with cyclists and motor vehicles turning into and out of the new supermarket entrance.

 

 

Staff Recommendations

That the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Approve that under clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times commencing from the intersection of Beckford Road and Wilsons Road South and extending in a north-westerly direction for 60 metres as shown on Attachment B to the report on the meeting agenda.

2.         Approve under section 334 of the Local Government Act 1974 the installation of the median island and road surface changes as shown on Attachment B, attached to the report on the meeting agenda.

3.         Approve that under clause 17 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 that the right hand turn movement for all vehicles from the southeast approach of Wilsons Road South to the new entrance at 92 Wilsons Road be prohibited at all times as detailed on Attachment B to the report on the meeting agenda.

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

 

 

 

The above staff recommendations were moved by Phil Clearwater and seconded by Melanie Coker and when put to the vote the resolution was lost.

 

 

 

7.   Notice of Motion

 

Community Board Decided SCCB/2019/00070

Part A

Pursuant to Standing Order 22 - Notices of Motion, the following motion was moved by Helene Mautner

That the Waihoro/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.

Helene Mautner/Phil Clearwater                                                                                                                        Carried

 

The meeting adjourned at 7.01pm and reconvened at 7.06pm.

Tim Scandrett left the meeting at 7.01pm.

 

11. Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere 2019/20 Youth Achievement and Development Scheme

 

Community Board Resolved SCCB/2019/00071 (Original staff recommendations accepted without change)

Part C

That the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Approves a grant of $100 from its 2019/20 Youth Achievement and Development Scheme to Madison Jane Fortune towards participation in the National Big Sing Finale 2019 in Dunedin, 28 August – 1 September.

8.     Wilsons Road South - Proposed Signalised Crossing

Reference:

19/697019

Presenter(s):

Privinn Mwene – Traffic Engineer

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board to recommend to Council that it approve the installation of a mid-block signalised pedestrian crossing on Wilsons Road South opposite Hillview Christian School as shown on Attachment A.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board recommend that Council approve:

1.         That a three metre wide pedestrian crossing, controlled by traffic signals be installed on Wilsons Road South located at a point 123 metres southeast of its intersection with St Martins Road.

2.         That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in 1. are in place.

3.         Revoke any previous resolutions pertaining to traffic controls made pursuant to any bylaw to extent that they are in conflict with the traffic controls described in 1.

3.   Key Points

3.1       The recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety and Efficiency Service Plan in the Council’s Long Term Plan 2018-28. 

3.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·    Option 1 – Install mid-block signalised pedestrian crossing and associated on Wilsons Road South as shown on Attachment A.

·    Option 2 – Do Nothing

3.3       Option Summary – Advantages and Disadvantages (preferred option)

3.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·    Supports school safety by providing a controlled pedestrian crossing point on Wilsons Road South.

·    No removal of any car parking

3.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·    None Identified

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1       The Hillview School and the school’s community as well as the police have raised concerns about the safety of the pedestrians crossing Wilsons Road South in the vicinity of the school. The two school sites are divided by Wilsons Road South which is a Minor Arterial road. It carries an average daily traffic of 10,609 vehicles per day. School children cross the road from one site to the other throughout the day. The total number of students crossing the road between 8am to 5pm is over 1600 daily. Furthermore, the 85 percentile speed of motor vehicles was found to be around 53km/h.

4.2       The existing Kea crossing and pedestrian island facilities only provide some protection to school children during the mornings and the afternoons, leaving the children to cross the road throughout the day without any assistance. Pedestrian refuge islands work well on low traffic volume roads with low volumes of pedestrians. In this case the, volume of pedestrians is too high to be catered for by a pedestrian refuge.

4.3       The proposal is to remove the existing Kea crossing and the pedestrian island on Wilsons Road outside Hillview School and replace it with a fully signalised pedestrian crossing. This proposal would have little or no impact on the network.

Strategic Alignment

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

4.4.1   Activity: Traffic Safety and Efficiency

·     Level of Service: 10.0.6.1 Reduce the number of casualties on the road network. - <=124 (reduce by 5 or more per year) .

Decision Making Authority

4.5       Council makes decisions on the installation or removal of traffic lights and has not delegated this authority.

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

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

4.7       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.

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

 

5.   Options Analysis

Options Considered

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

·   Install signalised pedestrian crossing on Wilsons Road South as shown on Attachment A.

·   Do Nothing

5.2       The following options were considered but ruled out

·   No other options were considered.

Options Descriptions

5.3       Preferred Option: Install signalised pedestrian crossing on Wilsons Rd South as shown on Attachment A.

5.3.1   Option Description:

·   This option removes the existing Kea crossing and the pedestrian island on Wilsons Road South outside Hillview School and replaces them with a fully signalised pedestrian crossing.

·   The signalised crossing will be of a Puffin style crossing, using near side pedestrian display units. This style has been installed in a number of places across NZ and is fully compliment with all required legislation.

5.3.2   Option Advantages

·     The proposed pedestrian signals, when called will require traffic to stop and give pedestrians their own dedicated phase to cross Wilsons Road South, improving safety for pedestrians in this location.

·     Puffin Crossings use kerb-side detectors which cancel the call if the pedestrians move out of the detector area. This reduces unnecessary traffic delays.

·     Users of all abilities can safely complete crossing without the signal changing during crossing. On-road crossing detectors detect the pedestrians as they complete their crossing and lengthen the crossing phase (to a maximum).

·     Nearside Display mounted next to the waiting pedestrians, orientated so that pedestrians see the approaching vehicles when watching the signal to change. Only solid red or green person displayed (no flashing red).

·     This proposal will have little or no impact on the network.

·     No removal of parking

5.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·     None Identified

5.4       Option 2 – Do Nothing

5.4.1   Option Description: Retains existing Infrastructure.

5.4.2   Option Advantages

·     Retains existing Infrastructure.

5.4.3   Option Disadvantages

·     Does not support school safety at this location.

Analysis Criteria

5.5       Options have been assessed by their contributions to the following issues:

·    Pedestrians safety

6.   Community Views and Preferences

6.1       Adjacent property owners, residents and the school were advised of the recommended option by letters along with “How to use a Puffin crossing” leaflets as shown on Attachment B. The Community Board was advised of that in advance.

6.2       Consultation started on the 26th of June 2019 and closed 22nd of July 2019, however any late submissions will be made known to the Board.

6.3       No known objections have been received to date. The school Principal has expressed his full support for the preferred option and indicated that the school would like to attend the Community Board meeting and speak in favour of the proposal.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1       This specific report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit however the report has been written using general approach previously approved of by the Legal Services Unit, and the recommendations are consistent with the policy and legislative framework outlined.

7.2       The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

8.   Risks

8.1       None identified.

9.   Next Steps

9.1       Implementation dependencies - dependent on endorsement by the Community Board and approval by Council.

9.2       Implementation timeframe – it is intended to install the signalised crossing before Christmas 2019.

9.     Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere 2019/20 Youth Achievement and Development Scheme

Reference:

19/890935

Presenter(s):

Emma Pavey, Community Recreation Advisor

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board to consider an application received for funding from its 2019/20 Youth Achievement and Development Scheme.

1.2       This report is to assist the Board to consider an application of funding from Maddison Moore.

1.3       At the time of writing the report there is currently a balance of $5,900 remaining in this fund.

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Waihoro/Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Approves a grant of $250 from its 2019/20 Youth Achievement and Development Scheme to Maddison Moore towards the New Zealand Trampolining Nationals 2019 in Auckland from 1 to 6 October 2019.

3.   Key Points

Issue or Opportunity

3.1       Provide the opportunity for young people to play their chosen sport at both national and international level; and/or to foster personal development and growth in terms of cultural, leadership or extra-curricular educational opportunities.

Strategic Alignment

3.2       Investing in our youth to develop leadership, cultural competence and success in their chosen field builds the capacity of our city’s youth, our future adults.  In doing so we increase the likelihood of these youths contributing to developing a vibrant, prosperous and sustainable 21st century city; one of the council’s six Strategic Priorities. The recommendations contained in this report are based on this principle.

Decision Making Authority

1.1       Determine the allocation of the discretionary Response Fund for each community (including any allocation towards a Youth Development Fund).

1.2       Allocations must be consistent with any policies, standards or criteria adopted by the Council

1.3       The Fund does not cover:

·   Legal challenges or Environment Court challenges against the Council, Council Controlled organisations or Community Board decisions

·   Projects or initiatives that change the scope of a Council project or that will lead to ongoing operational costs to the Council (though Community Boards can recommend to the Council that it consider a grant for this purpose).

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

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

3.3       The level of significance was determined by the number of people affected and/or with an interest.

3.4       Due to the assessment of low significance, no further community engagement and consultation is required.

4.   Applicant 1 – Maddison Moore

4.1       Age: 13

4.2       School: Hillmorton High

4.3       Suburb: Hoon Hay

4.4       Event seeking support for: New Zealand Trampolining Nationals 2019

4.5       Maddison lives with her mother, step-father and step-brother in Hoon Hay.  She has been a competitive trampolinist for two and a half years and during this time has won 13 medals.  Currently Maddison holds the title of Canterbury Champ for her age division and was placed 7th last year at the New Zealand Nationals.  More recently, Maddison was placed 1st in the Upper South Island Champs.  Maddison has been selected to represent Canterbury in this year's New Zealand Trampolining Nationals in Auckland to be held in October. 

4.6       Maddison trains four to five days a week and reports to be determined to win a medal at this year's Nationals.  Her coach also reports that she has been working extremely hard to increase her skills and is a dedicated athlete.

4.7       Maddison is interested in netball and plays for different clubs in the summer and winter.  She is also on her school Sport Council and helps organise sporting events at the school.

4.8       Maddison's squad has been jointly fundraising with all funds being split between the athletes.  To date they have raised over $500 by running a canteen at club events.  They will continue to fundraise over the next couple of months.

3.1       Memos/Information/Advice to the Board

3.1.1   Selwyn Street Reserve Landscaping

At its meeting on 7 May 2019 the Board considered the proposed landscape plan for Selwyn Street Reserve. The plan was approved but the Board asked that staff investigate the potential for native plant species to be incorporated into the design and provide a detailed design plan to the Board prior to the commencement of work and that it be informed of historical information related to Jackson’s Creek to be added as a sign in the reserve.

Staff have advised that the physical works at Selwyn Street Reserve are to be completed after completion of a storm water project at the same site. The stormwater works are tentatively scheduled to be completed February 2020 and the timing of the landscaping work is yet to be finalised.

Staff will provide an update in relation to timing and detail as soon as this is known.

3.1.2   'Summer with your neighbours' (formerly known as Neighbourhood Week)

Applications for a small funding subsidy for ‘Summer with your Neighbours’ are open until 16 August 2019. Reminders have gone out this week encouraging groups to get their applications in. Last year 48 grants were made and it is hoped that this year’s application will at least match that figure.

The Community Board's subsidy is for neighbourhood gatherings held between 25 October 2019 and 29 March 2020.

 

3.1.3   Seat Installation - Remuera Reserve

In April 2019 the Board recognising the increased distances that people, including older adults, now have to walk to catch buses requested staff to give consideration be given to the placement of benches on the footpath in between bus stops in areas where there are limited bus stops such as Thorrington.

Staff have now provided the attached memorandum in response. Following a site visit was undertaken following the request with the customer (David) in April 2019 and a discussion with the resident that originally made the proposal two options were identified for the siting of a bench along the bus route. After discussions with parks staff it was agreed that a bench would be sited in Remuera Reserve and would be a Parks asset.

Procurement and installation of the bench is scheduled for the 2019-20 financial year.

3.1.4   Christchurch South Community Gardens

The Christchurch South Community Gardens celebrated 20 years in operation on Saturday 10 August 2019 with a hangi to thank the community for their support over the years. The event went ahead despite the extremely inclement weather on the day.

5.4       Infrastructure projects underway

The proposed safety improvements to the Barrington Mall entrance/exit on Barrington Street were scheduled to get underway at the beginning of May.  The changes to the resource consent for Barrington Mall necessary before the work can commence have not been put in place and staff are currently working with Barrington Mall management to develop an alternative design proposal that would provide the same level of improved safety while addressing concerns of the Mall tenants. An alternative design may require further consultation.

A further update will be provided in the near future.

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

6.1       Rowley Canterbury Kids Coach Just Music programme.

There was a reminder recently of the powerful impact small grants can make to community organisations, when the Rowley Canterbury Kids Coach project shared a story about its utilisation of a small amount of money granted by the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board. Around seven years ago the Rowley Canterbury Kids Coach received a small amount of funding from the Board to start a preschool music group called Just Music. They used the money to buy musical instruments and report that they stretched the money as far as it could go. They bought dowel for the drum sticks and a family member made them. Another family member gathered milk powder tins and covered them with silver paper for drums. They have since replaced these instruments with proper drums and equipment, but the important point is the longevity of the project which started with that very small grant. The Just Music group for small children and their parents in Rowley is still going after seven years.

6.2       Peninsula and Plains Orienteering – Victoria Park

An application has been submitted to the Events Team by the Peninsula and Plains Orienteering group to hold an Orienteering event in Victoria Park on Wednesday 11 September 2019 from 10am to 2.30pm.  It is anticipated that approximately 300 will attend.  The event is subject to the successful issuing of an event permit.

 

6.3       Events

6.3.1   The Breeze Walking Festival

Planning is underway for The Breeze Walking Festival held in the term three school holidays from the 28 September – 13 October. Over the two weeks there will be over fifty walks across Christchurch, Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts which include five 'feature' walks, sunrise and sunset walks, the popular pre-school and whanau focused and some new walks.   Festival programmes will be available at Christchurch City Council libraries and Service Centres or online from 19 August.

While about half the festival walks require bookings, you can simply join the other walks on the day.  Among this year’s family friendly feature walks are several festival highlights, including a Dogs’ Day Out in the Zone on 29 September, Gruffalo Explorers in Bottle Lake Forest (2 October), The Generation Game at Travis Wetland (6 October), Pukeko Stomp at MacLeans Island (8 October) and Adventure on Te Ara Ihutai Christchurch Coastal Pathway (13 October). 

The Festival is possible due to the contributions of over 30 event partners who provide a great range of walks each year.  All walks are free although some walks may charge for transport costs.

6.3.2   Muddy Adventure

The first “Muddy Adventure” was held in Victoria Park on 16 July 2019 as part of Kidsfest.  The “Muddy Adventure” was a collaboration between the Pukeko Centre, Victoria Park Rangers, the Cashmere Volunteer Army and the Community Recreation Advisors from Spreydon-Cashmere and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and the Events Team.  This is the first nature play event to be held and supported by the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board.

Participants were required to book places within designated time slots to help alleviate the parking in the park.   The event ran from 10am to 2pm with approximately 250 people booking places.  There was a planned route through the park with activity stations along the route.  This included harakeke hut building, mud face painting, a balance beam, cave chalking, nature’s mud kitchen, a rope swing, cave exploring, mud-slinging and toasting marshmallows.  The children were encouraged to bring along their mugs so that they could have a free cup of soup.
