A minute’s silence for Doug Couch

 

The meeting will acknowledge the passing last month of Douglas Falcon Herewini (Doug) Couch, who served on Mount Herbert County Council, Banks Peninsula District Council and Lyttelton/Mt Herbert Community Board.

 

Doug was born in Lyttelton in 1932 and was raised at Rāpaki where he lived for most of his life.

 

Throughout his life Doug was heavily involved in the Rāpaki and the wider Banks Peninsula communities. In the late 1970s he served a term on the Mount Herbert County Council before going on to serve on the Banks Peninsula District Council and the Lyttelton/Mt Herbert Community Board.

 

He had stints as president of the Lyttelton Lions Club and the Lyttelton Youth Council and was a member of the local Civil Defence operations team. He was also an active figure within his rūnanga, Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke.

6.4       Aidanfield Christian School - Park 'n' Stride - Trial

To address issues of safety and traffic congestion outside the Aidanfield Christian School a trial school-run was held where all parents who normally dropped their children off at school by car instead parked at Ngā Puna Wai and walked with their children along the existing track and in through the rear gate to the school.

Parents were rewarded with a free coffee and muffin and the students got a stamp card with which they could continue to collect stamps which equate to house points.

There were around fifty cars observed parking at Ngā Puna Wai that morning and initial feedback was positive, with one parent, remarking that it was the safest and quietest she had seen Dunbars Road the whole year.

Staff at Ngā Puna Wai have observed a few more cars parking there on mornings since the trial and a survey has been sent out to parents to seek feedback to see if the majority would use this route to the school on a regular basis. If the feedback finds most parents in favour of regularly using the route, the next step will be to secure funding to install a more formal pathway which links the walkway around Ngā Puna Wai to the rear gate of the Aidanfield Christian School.

 

6.5       Templeton Domain – Public Tennis Court

The upgrade and repair to the Templeton Domain public tennis court has been successfully completed.  The work included a new surface, fence and net.  Roots from the nearby tree had cracked through the surface rendering the court unsafe to play on and there were numerous holes in the fence.

The group’s aim is to build on their success and continue to offer fun, affordable, sporting activities for each of the school holidays throughout the year encouraging more children and young people to get involved in sport.

North West - Proposed Speed Management Plan

Reference:

19/1209018

Presenter(s):

Steve Dejong Traffic Engineer
Samantha Sharland, Engagement Advisor

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Boards to consider the consultation feedback and views on proposed speed limit changes within the Hornby and Harewood wards, and to make a recommendation to the Council.

2.   Executive Summary

2.2       In order to support the objectives of the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) Speed Management Guide 2016, the statutory requirements of Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 and the overall vision of the Safer Journeys: Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020, a number of speed limit changes are proposed as shown in Attachments A to D).

2.3       The North West Proposed - Speed Management Plan covers two board areas; Waipuna/Halswell-Riccarton-Wigram and Waimaero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood) as well as state highway 73 which is under New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) Jurisdiction. NZTA will make a decision on the proposed State Highway speeds indicated within this proposal.

2.4       This Proposal includes: The Yaldhurst Village Area speed change Plan Attachment A, Chatterton’s Road, Mcleans Island Road and Miners Road Proposed Speed Limit Changes Attachment B, Grays/Shipleys/Broughs and Dickeys Roads proposed Speed Limit Changes Attachment C and Roto Kohatu Proposed 20 kilometre per hour Speed Limit Attachment D.

2.5       Dickeys Road is a boundary road between the Waimaero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and the Waipapa/Papanui- Innes Community board areas, and therefore requires a recommendation to Council from both Community Boards.  Although Dickeys Road was consulted on together with the North West Proposed Speed Management Plan, it will be the subject of a separate report to the relevant Boards.

2.6       In 2018 Council approved the Northwest area speed change proposals which included Claridges Road, Styx Mill Road, Harewood Road, Hussey Road as well as parts of Guys Road and Ryans Road some of which are shown on the attached plans. The 2018 Council decision reduced rural speeds to facilitate residential development in the northwest of the city as well as introducing safer speeds to rural residential areas. The North West Proposed -Speed Management Plan complements and builds on the previously approved speed changes.

2.7       This proposal also includes some minor speed limit adjustments required in association with recent Roads of National Significance (RONS) projects, and the Roto Kohatu Recreational Reserve proposed 20 kilometres per hour speed limit as requested by the Parks Unit.

2.8       Also included in this report are two corrections to the Christchurch City Councils Register of Speed Limits. One is a typographical error from a previous speed change report and the other an omission in the previous mentioned 2018 report, which had been recently been identified (see section 4.18 to 4.20).

2.9       The proposed speed limits take into account safe and appropriate speeds identified in accordance with the NZTA Speed Management Guide, as well as another key objective of the Guide to improve consistency and credibility of speed limits locally and nationally.

2.10    Slowing down vehicle operating speeds saves lives, with a strong link between speed and safety. Having speed limits set at the appropriate level for the conditions is one of the most important ways Council can assist people to get where they want to go safely.

2.11    The proposed speed limits are supported by key stakeholder groups, including NZTA, Police, Selwyn District Council and, based on feedback received during consultation, are also supported by a majority of people in the community.

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1       Christchurch City Council is currently working on a number of speed management projects across its road network, many of which are focussed on those roads identified in the first edition of the Safer Journeys Risk Assessment Tool (Mega Maps) as providing high benefit opportunities for speed management interventions as well as a number of adjoining and surrounding rural/ rural-residential roads with existing speed limits of 70/80 kilometres per hour. The following roads/corridors within the Hornby and Harewood wards were identified from Mega Maps as providing high benefit opportunities for speed management interventions.

·    Pound Road from Buchanans Road to Ryans Road

·    Mcleans Island Road

 

4.2       The focus on these high risk roads, and desired outcomes of reducing death and serious injury, is consistent with the approach of the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport, the Council’s Road Safety Action Plan (which promotes collaborative planning among road safety inter-agencies) and the Council’s Long Term Plan (which has a level of service target to reduce death and serious injuries by five or more per year).

Yaldhurst Village Area Speed Change Proposal: (Refer Attachment A)

4.3       The Yaldhurst Village Area Speed Change Proposal is a joint Christchurch City Council (CCC) and New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) initiative. It includes roads within the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton and Waimāero/Fendalton - Waimairi- Harewood Community Board areas as well as roads under the jurisdiction of the NZTA and a boundary road with Selwyn District Council.

4.4       NZTA and CCC staff worked in collaboration to develop the Yaldhurst Village Area Speed Change Proposal, assessing the roads within it and producing the consultation documents. In September 2019, prior to consultation, CCC and NZTA staff held a seminar with both Community Boards where the proposal was presented.

4.5       The NZTA Board will make the decision on the State Highway speeds proposed in the plan and the Council will make the decision on local roads under its jurisdiction after taking into consideration recommendations from the joint Community Boards.

4.6       Pound Road, Hasketts Road and School Road are rural residential roads currently posted at either 70 kilometres per hour or 80 kilometres per hour.  The plan proposes dropping the speed on these roads to 60 kilometres per hour to match the proposed speed on State Highway 73 through Yaldhurst Village. Development in the Village has increased in recent years and NZTA desire an extension of the 60 kilometre per hour Village proposed speed south of the Hasketts Road intersection to improve safety.

4.7       It is proposed to reduce the speed on all approaches to the Pound Road/Ryans Road intersection which is rated No 9 of the worst 100 Christchurch intersections. This intersection is in need of an upgrade, funding for which is currently being sought for improvements. The proposed speed reduction through the intersection will improve its safety until land can be purchased and intersection improvements can be programmed.

Chattertons Road, McLeans Island Road and Miners Road: (Refer Attachment B)

4.8       Chattertons Road is a Christchurch City/Selwyn District boundary road. Selwyn District Council’s Team Leader Transportation has recently reaffirmed his intention to seek that the Selwyn District Council set the same speed limits as those that may be approved by the Christchurch City Council as part of this plan.

4.9       It is proposed to reduce the speed on the northern end of Chattertons Road , Miners Road and McLeans Island Road; to its intersection with pound Road, from 100 kilometres per hour to 80 kilometres per hour.  This proposal covers the length of the McLeans Island Recreational Area that includes a number of recreational activities spread along either side of the road.

4.10    Reducing the speed through the McLeans Island Recreational Area from 100 kilometres per hour to 80 kilometres per hour will give users more time to identify the entrance to their chosen activity, slow down and turn without being pressured by following traffic to keep their speed up. The lower speed limit will also make it easier for vehicles to exit back onto McLeans Island Road particularly when towing horse floats.

4.11    The length of Miners Road is 90 percent unsealed and gravel.  A speed in excess of 80 kilometres per hour is not safe nor appropriate on Miners Road.

Broughs Road and Grays Road: (Refer Attachment C)

4.12    The speed on Broughs Road is currently still set at the old rural default speed of 100km/hr however it has never been signed as 100 kilometres per hour.

4.13    Following the closure of the right turn into and out of Mcleans Island Road from Russley Road (done as part of the Russley Road ‘RONS’ upgrade), Broughs Road (previously ‘No Exit’) was extended to intersect with Mcleans Island Road.

4.14    This proposal reduces the speed limit on this industrial road to the safe and appropriate speed of 50 kilometres per hour.

4.15    The speed limit on Grays Road is currently posted at 80 kilometres per hour however, the northern end of Grays Road has been stopped and sold to the Christchurch International Airport Authority (CIAL).  Reducing the speed on Grays Road to 50 kilometres per hour at the approach to George Bellew Road will improve safety at the intersection where the priority route now makes a 90 degree turn towards the airport.

Roto Kohatu Recreation Reserve: (Refer Attachment D)

4.16    The access roads within the Roto Kohatu Recreation Reserve are currently set at 50 kilometres per hour by default under the Christchurch City Councils Urban Speed Limits Bylaw. The Council’s Traffic Operations Team and the Parks Unit have received a number of complaints of speeding on the reserves gravel roads and requests to have the speed lowered.

4.17    This report proposes reducing the speed within the whole of the Roto Kohatu Reserve to 20 kilometres per hour, which is considered the safe and appropriate speed for a recreational reserve.

Corrections to the Speed Limits Register

4.18    Buchanans Road: Staff have identified an error in the Register of Speed Limits on Buchanans Road. Upon investigation this appears to have originated in 2010 when the speed limit on the majority of Buchanans Road was changed to 80 kilometres per hour. The cause appears to be due to a copy and paste error in the typing of the staff report which has been carried over into the Council resolutions which has resulted in Council unintentionally resolving a section of Buchanans Road as both 80 kilometres per hour and 100 kilometres per hour simultaneously.

4.19    In order to correct this error in the register, it is recommend that the Council resolve to correct this resolution. This correction is administrative only and has not been included in the consultation and reflects the current posted speed limit on Buchanans Road (refer staff recommendations 1e to 1g).

4.20    Watsons Road: In 2018, on request from the principal of Harewood Primary School, Council resolved Harewood Road at 50 kilometre per hour. The staff report recommended Harewood Road and a 200 metre stretch of Watsons Road be set at 60 kilometres per hour.  At the Council Meeting staff presenting the report were confused and agreed to the 50 kilometres per hour for Harewood Road, however the 200 metre section of Watsons Road was overlooked and left at 60 kilometres per hour. Staff returned to Council chamber to attempt to re-resolve Harewood Road at 60 kilometre per hour but did not get the required 75 percent vote to overturn the previous resolution of the Council.

4.21    This report simply seeks that the 200 metre section of Watsons Road be resolved at 50 kilometres per hour so its posted speed is consistent with Harewood Road and the northern end of Watsons Road (refer staff recommendations 2v to 2w ).

4.22    Export Ave: Export Ave is a 100 metre long light industrial cul-de-sac. At the time staff were preparing to consult on the proposed speed changes in this report the council speed limit map incorrectly transposed Shipleys Road as a 100 kilometres per hour road and Export Avenue as a 50 kilometres per hour road. Staff mistakenly consulted on changing the speed on Shipleys Road, a private farm entrance that the map was showing as a legal 100 kilometres per hour road. (Refer Attachment C, Location B)

4.23    Staff did not receive feedback from the Shipleys Road consultation.  Following the discovery of the error information was delivered to all businesses in Export Avenue explaining that it is recommended that the speed limit on Export Avenue be reduced to 50 kilometres per hour. Although Export Avenue is listed in the Councils Speed Limit Register as a 100 kilometre per hour road it has never been signed at that.  All businesses located in Export Avenue were unaware that the road was legally 100 kilometres per hour. 

4.24    This report seeks to have Export Avenue resolved as a 50 kilometres per hour road.

Strategic Alignment

4.25    The New Zealand Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020 ‘Safer Journeys’, is designed to guide improvements in road safety, with the overall vision of “A safe road system increasingly free of death and serious injury”. The ‘Safe System’ approach that underpins the Strategy looks across the entire road system to improve road safety by creating safer roads and road sides, safer vehicles, safer road use and safer speeds. This approach recognises that road user mistakes are inevitable, but that it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that the system protects people from death and serious injury when those mistakes occur. The Strategy recognises the speed affects the likelihood and impact of all crashes, and notes that small reductions in impact speed greatly increase the chances of surviving a crash, particularly for pedestrians or cyclists.

4.26    The 2020-2030 Road Safety Strategy ‘Road to Zero’ is due to be released before the end of the Year. It will build on the safe system approach adopted in ‘Safer Journeys’, and seek to strengthen all elements of the road system (safe roads and roadsides, safe vehicles, safe road use and safe speeds) through a collaborative approach as well as setting an ambitious (but achievable) target of a 40 per cent reduction in deaths and serious injuries over 10 years. The proposed new strategy also recognises that road safety actions can support the health and wellbeing of local communities, and help to make the roads more ‘liveable places’.

4.27    The NZTA Speed Management Guide 2016 was developed to fulfil one of the early action points of the ‘Safer Journeys’ Strategy, and provides guidance on setting speeds that are safe and appropriate for the function, design and use of roads, whilst also seeking to improve consistency and credibility of speed limits locally and nationally.

4.28    Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 formalises the approach to speed management in the Guide, and establishes the requirements for road controlling authorities to set safe and appropriate speed limits whilst also encouraging a consistent approach to speed management in New Zealand. The Rule also sets out the requirements for NZTA to provide road controlling authorities with guidance and information on speed management.

4.29    The Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2018/2019 – 2027/2028 supports an accelerated approach to implementing the Speed Management Guide, focusing on treating the top 10 per cent of the road network which will result in the greatest reduction in death and serious injury. In the context of the northwest speed management plan, Pound Road between Buchanans and Ryans Road, and Mcleans Island Road are identified as being in the top 10 per cent of DSi saving road network sections to achieve the Government Policy Statement targets for 2018-2021.

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

4.30.1 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

4.31    The Council

Previous Decisions

4.32    In 2018 Council approved that the speed limit on Guys Road, Coring Road and the western end of Ryans Road be set at 60 kilometres per hour. (These roads are shown on Attachment A as dashed red lines).

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

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

4.34    The level of significance was determined through consideration of the various assessment criteria in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy Worksheet.

4.35    The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflects the assessed level of significance.

6.   Community Views and Preferences

6.1       Consultation was open from 2 September to 30 September.

6.2       Approximately 150 consultation documents were delivered to residents and businesses in the area.  Attachment E refers to the Yaldhurst Village Information leaflet.

6.3       Thirty nine comments were received on the local roads and 49 comments received on the State Highway 73.  Submitters had a choice to comment on either areas or just one. Comments received that related to State Highway 73 have been passed on to NZTA, the decision-maker for the proposed speeds on those sections of State Highway 73 included in the joint proposal.

6.4       Due to the size of the speed review area, social media, Community Development Advisor’s contacts, and local newspapers were utilized to let people know about the consultation.

6.5       The consultation was promoted through social media and was picked up by the Western News.

6.6       The majority of submitters supported the proposed speed reduction. Those who do not support the proposed change in speed, live outside the area and are travelling through.

6.7       We have commented on some of the common themes identified in the consultation.

Comments

Team response

Reducing the speed further especially in the village.

There are no plans to reduce speeds further in Yaldhurst Village from the proposed 60km/hr and School Rood is already 50km/hr( SH73 is NZTA Jurisdiction)

Changing our proposed speed from 60km/h to 80km/h.

The proposed 60km/hr is the safe and appropriate speed for the identified sections of road which is supported By NZTA and the Police

Clearer line marking on the Pound Road/Yaldhurst Road roundabout.

NZTA staff will look into this and follow up with the maintenance contractor.          (NZTA Jurisdiction)

Roundabout at Pound Road/Ryans Road.

A roundabout/ intersection up- grade is proposed for Pound/Ryans however this needs to be budgeted for and adjoining land purchased.

Slower speed on Ryans Road.

Ryans Road is a rural road and there is insufficient activity along the majority of this road to expect vehicles to travel at 60km/hr

•     New footpath on Pound Road for school children.

•     Widening the shoulder area as that give room for vehicles to pass when waiting at centre of road to turn into driveways on Pound Road. 

•     Ryans Road needs resurfacing.

Footpaths are not currently budgeted or programmed for Pound Road. There is no resurfacing planned for Ryans Road for the next 4 years however identified failures of sections of road can be forwarded to the maintenance team for inspection and repair.

North West consultation

6.8       Consultation was open from 2 September to 30 September and we received 25 submissions.

6.9       We delivered to businesses on Broughs Road, and emailed the other businesses in the area including the groups who use Roto Kohatu Reserve.

6.10    As the area for the speed review was sparse, the project team decided to utilise social media, Community Development Advisor’s contacts, and newspapers to let people know about the consultation.

6.11    Some of the common themes identified in the consultation feedback were:

·    Not changing the speed limit on McLeans Island Road.

·    Reducing the speed on McLeans Island Road.

·    Enforcement.

·    Keep Broughs Road at 80 kilometres per hour

·    Remove centre lines to encourage motorists to slow down.

·    Extend the speed reduction on Dickeys Road.

·    Eight people commented and supported the Roto Kohatu Reserve speed reduction.

·    One submitter commented and supported the reduction on Grays Road.

 

 

 

6.9       The Board will receive the full submissions prior to its meeting date. The redacted submissions, with address details removed, will be available on the consultation page when the meeting agenda is available.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1       Speed limits must be set in accordance with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017.

7.2       Part 4 Section 27 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides the Council with the authority to set speed limits by resolution.

7.3       The Council has not delegated its authority to set speed limits.

7.4       The installation of signs and/or markings associated with traffic controls, including speed limits, must comply with Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

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

8.   Risks

8.1       If the proposed speed limit changes are approved, Selwyn District Council will also need to set the same speed limit on Chattertons Road, which is a Christchurch City Council/Selwyn District Council boundary road under the control of both Road Controlling Authorities.

 

9.   Next Steps

9.1       Report and recommendations referred to the Council for a decision.

9.2       If approved, implementation is expected to be complete by March 2020.

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Waipapa/ Papanui- Innes Community Boards to consider the consultation feedback and views on the proposed speed limit change for Dickeys Road and to make a recommendation to the Council.

2.   Executive Summary

2.2       In order to support the objectives of the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) Speed Management Guide 2016, the statutory requirements of Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 and the overall vision of the Safer Journeys: Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020, a number of speed limit changes are proposed in the Hornby and Harewood Wards (refer Attachments A to D).

2.3       This report relates only to Dickeys Road.  Dickeys Road is a boundary road between the Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Waipapa/ Papanui- Innes Community Boards (Refer Attachment C, Location C).

2.4       The Dickeys Road proposed speed limit change is part of the larger ‘North West Proposed - Speed Management Plan’.     

2.5       The North West Proposed - Speed Management Plan covers three Board areas; Waipuna/Halswell-Riccarton-Wigram, Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Waipapa/ Papanui- Innes as well as State Highway 73 which is under NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) jurisdiction.  NZTA will make a decision on the proposed state highway speeds indicated within this proposal.

2.6       The joint Waipuna/Halswell-Riccarton-Wigram, Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Boards at their meeting on the 16 December 2019 made the decision to support the staff recommendations with the exception of Items 3.i and 3.j relating to McLeans Island Road and 3n relating to Miners Road. 

2.7       The Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board is recommending that the Council defer a decision on these items to allow further consultation with key businesses and organisations on McLeans Island Road.   

2.1       The Waimāero/Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board is also recommending to the Council that the speed limit on Miners Road be reduced to 60 kilometres per hour.

2.2       The wider proposal which this report is part of includes: The Yaldhurst Village Area Speed Change Plan (referAttachment A), Chatterton’s Road, McLeans Island Road and Miners Road Proposed Speed Limit Changes (refer Attachment B), Grays/Shipleys/Broughs and Dickeys Roads Proposed Speed Limit Changes (refer Attachment C), and Roto Kohatu Proposed 20 kilometre per hour Speed Limit (refer Attachment D).

2.3       The proposed speed limits take into account safe and appropriate speeds identified in accordance with the NZTA Speed Management Guide, as well as another key objective of the Guide to improve consistency and credibility of speed limits locally and nationally.

2.4       Slowing down vehicle operating speeds saves lives, with a strong link between speed and safety. Having speed limits set at the appropriate level for the conditions is one of the most important ways Council can assist people to get where they want to go safely.

2.5       The proposed speed limits are supported by key stakeholder groups, including NZTA, Police, Selwyn District Council and, based on feedback received during consultation, are also supported by a majority of people in the community.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Joint Waimāero /Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Boards recommend that the Council:

1.         Approve, pursuant to Part 4 Section 27 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 and Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017, that the speed limits on the following road be revoked and set as detailed below in 1a-1b including resultant changes made to the Christchurch City Council Register of Speed Limits and associated Speed Limit Maps.

a.         Approve that all existing permanent speed limits on Dickeys Road commencing at its intersection with Main North Road (State Highway 1) and extending generally in a north westerly direction for a distance of 460 metres be revoked.

b.         Approve that the permanent speed limit on Dickeys Road commencing at its intersection with Main North Road (State Highway 1) and extending generally in a north westerly direction for a distance of 460 metres be set at 60 kilometres per hour.

2.         Approve that the speed limit changes listed above in clauses 1a – 1b above come into force following the date of Council approval plus the installation of all required infrastructure (signage and/or markings) and the removal of any redundant infrastructure.

 

4.   Context/Background

Issue or Opportunity

4.1       Christchurch City Council is currently working on a number of speed management projects across its road network, many of which are focussed on those roads identified in the first edition of the Safer Journeys Risk Assessment Tool (Mega Maps) as providing high benefit opportunities for speed management interventions as well as a number of adjoining and surrounding rural/ rural-residential roads with existing speed limits of 70/80 kilometres per hour.

4.2       The focus on these high risk roads, and desired outcomes of reducing death and serious injury, is consistent with the approach of the Government Policy Statement on Land Transport, the Council’s Road Safety Action Plan (which promotes collaborative planning among road safety inter-agencies) and the Council’s Long Term Plan (which has a level of service target to reduce death and serious injuries by five or more per year).

 

Dickeys Road: Attachment C, Location C

4.3       The existing 60 kilometres per hour posted speed limit on Dickeys Road was extended northwest of the Western Belfast Bypass Overbridge following the completion of this NZTA ‘Roads of National Significance’ (RONS) project. 

4.4       The project constructed a speed threshold and installed signs at the new speed change point.  This recommendation simply proposes what has been provided by the NZTA Western Belfast Bypass project team.

Strategic Alignment

4.5       The New Zealand Road Safety Strategy 2010-2020 ‘Safer Journeys’, is designed to guide improvements in road safety, with the overall vision of “A safe road system increasingly free of death and serious injury”. The ‘Safe System’ approach that underpins the Strategy looks across the entire road system to improve road safety by creating safer roads and road sides, safer vehicles, safer road use and safer speeds. This approach recognises that road user mistakes are inevitable, but that it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that the system protects people from death and serious injury when those mistakes occur. The Strategy recognises that speed affects the likelihood and impact of all crashes, and notes that small reductions in impact speed greatly increase the chances of surviving a crash, particularly for pedestrians or cyclists.

4.6       The 2020-2030 Road Safety Strategy ‘Road to Zero’ was released in December 2019, this builds on the safe system approach adopted in ‘Safer Journeys’, and seeks to strengthen all elements of the road system (safe roads and roadsides, safe vehicles, safe road use and safe speeds) through a collaborative approach as well as setting an ambitious (but achievable) target of a 40 per cent reduction in deaths and serious injuries over 10 years. The proposed new strategy also recognises that road safety actions can support the health and wellbeing of local communities, and help to make the roads more ‘liveable places’.

4.7       The NZTA Speed Management Guide 2016 was developed to fulfil one of the early action points of the Strategy, and provides guidance on setting speeds that are safe and appropriate for the function, design and use of roads, whilst also seeking to improve consistency and credibility of speed limits locally and nationally.

4.8       Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 formalises the approach to speed management in the Guide, and establishes the requirements for road controlling authorities to set safe and appropriate speed limits whilst also encouraging a consistent approach to speed management in New Zealand. The Rule also sets out the requirements for NZTA to provide road controlling authorities with guidance and information on speed management.

4.9       The Government Policy Statement on Land Transport 2018/2019 – 2027/2028 supports an accelerated approach to implementing the Speed Management Guide, focusing on treating the top 10 per cent of the road network which will result in the greatest reduction in death and serious injury.

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

4.10.1 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

4.11    The Council has delegation for setting speed limits.

Previous Decisions

4.12    In 2018 Council approved that the speed limit on Guys Road, Coringa Road and the western end of Ryans Road be set at 60 kilometres per hour. (These roads are shown on Attachment A as dashed red lines).

Assessment of Significance and Engagement

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

4.14    The level of significance was determined through consideration of the various assessment criteria in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy Worksheet.

4.15    The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflects the assessed level of significance.

 

5.   Options Analysis

Options Considerations

5.6       Refer to the Options matrix in Section 10 of this report.

6.   Community Views and Preferences

Dickeys Road consultation

6.1       Consultation was open from 2 September to 30 September and two submissions were received regarding Dickeys Road.

6.2       As the area for the speed review was sparse, the project team decided to utilise social media, Community Development Advisor’s contacts, and newspapers to let people know about the consultation.

6.3       Both submissions received for the Dickeys Road speed change proposal support lowering the speed, although it appears that one submitter doesn’t realise that this has actually taken place and this report involves only a clerical change. The other submitter supports the change but wants it to go further along Dickeys Road, which the first submitter opposes.

6.4       The submitters state:

·     I support the proposed reduced speed limits. I wonder why you haven’t also considered extending a lower speed limit further along Dickeys Road (e.g. 80kmh). Also, removal of centre lines on some roads would help to encourage lower speeds.

·     As a resident of Coutts Island with 3 houses on the farm and an employer of 4 people that drive out to the site on week days, we would prefer the speed limit to remain the same, or at worst to reduce from the Dickeys Road Bridge over the South Branch of the Waimak. People occasionally park between the bridge and the motorway overpass to walk on the track but not on the west side of that carpark. The large shingle roadside carpark on the west side of the bridge does not get used much now the carparks on either side of the road between the bridge and the motorway overpass have been established.

7.   Legal Implications

7.1       Speed limits must be set in accordance with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017.

7.2       Part 4 Section 27 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides the Council with the authority to set speed limits by resolution.

7.3       The Council has not delegated its authority to set speed limits.

7.4       The installation of signs and/or markings associated with traffic controls, including speed limits, must comply with Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

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

8.   Risks

8.1       If the wider proposed speed limit changes are approved, Selwyn District Council will also need to set the same speed limit on Chattertons Road which is a Christchurch City Council/Selwyn District Council boundary road under the control of both Road Controlling Authorities.

9.   Next Steps

9.1       Report and recommendations referred to the Council for a decision.

9.2       If approved, implementation is expected to be complete by March 2020.

16.   Draft submission on the Urban Development Bill

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

19/1488014

Presenter(s) / Te kaipāhō:

Alison Outram, Policy Planner & David Falconer, Team Leader, City Planning

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report / Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       For Council to approve its draft submission (as attached) on the Urban Development Bill.

2.   Executive Summary / Te Whakarāpopoto Matua

2.1       The Urban Development Bill is intended to complement the Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Act 2019, which established a new Crown entity, Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities (Kāinga Ora). Kāinga Ora will function as the nation’s urban development authority, and the Urban Development Bill sets out the range of powers that Kāinga Ora will obtain.

2.2       The Council previously made a submission on the Kāinga Ora-Homes and Communities Bill, with key submission points being around effective, localised engagement and decision-making with councils and their communities; prioritising affordable housing provision; and taking into account existing local planning policies, strategies and documents relating to urban development.

2.3       These matters remain of high priority, however they do not appear to have been considered to any great degree in the Urban Development Bill. As such, the Council’s key submission points seek to highlight the importance of taking a partnership approach with territorial authorities and local communities; as well as the potential risks of Kāinga Ora having unfettered powers.

3.   Staff Recommendations / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Council:

1.         Approve the draft Council submission on the Urban Development Bill.

 

4.   Context / Background / Te Horopaki

Issue or Opportunity / Ngā take, Ngā Whaihua rānei

4.1       The Urban Development Bill is intended to complement the Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities Act 2019, which established a new Crown entity, Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities. The two key roles of Kāinga Ora are:

·   being a world-class public housing landlord; and

·   partnering with the development community, Māori, local and central government, and others on urban development projects of all sizes.

4.2       To assist Kāinga Ora with leading or facilitating these urban development projects (called specified development projects), the Urban Development Bill will provide Kāinga Ora with certain development powers, functions, rights and duties in order to speed up project delivery. These powers go well beyond the remit of the housing-specific agencies that Kāinga Ora has replaced, and are also beyond what is required to support community-focussed housing development.

4.3       The wide-ranging powers that Kāinga Ora will hold are presented as a means to address the housing challenges facing New Zealand, and while there may be some efficiencies in one entity having the authority to carry out these functions, there are also a number of risks associated with this. These risks include fragmented decision-making, which would lead to poor community outcomes; as well as the disenfranchisement of our communities after many efforts to re-engage with them.

4.4       Council staff seek to raise awareness of these risks, as well as methods to address them, and as such have prepared a draft submission to the Environment Select Committee on the Urban Development Bill.

4.5       The details of the Bill can be found at http://www.legislation.govt.nz/bill/government/2019/0197/latest/LMS290735.html

4.6       Written submissions are open until 14 February 2020.

Key Submission Points

4.7       The key points of the draft submission urge consideration of:

·   Stronger language in the Bill that requires Kāinga Ora to take a genuine partnership approach with stakeholders, with open lines of communication and consideration from both parties to ensure the best possible outcomes for all.

·   The extent of the proposed powers that Kāinga Ora will have (particularly around consenting and rating, and where these functions may result in inefficiencies and additional costs for Kāinga Ora and/or territorial authorities).

·   The importance of working with and undertaking meaningful engagement with local communities so as to understand their aspirations for their community.

4.8       These points are particularly pertinent given the current Government’s focus on working with local government on community wellbeing and the future role of local governance.

Decision Making Authority / Te Mana Whakatau

4.9       Council has the authority to make a decision to submit on the Bill and staff are therefore seeking the approval of Council to lodge a submission.

Strategic Alignment

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

4.10.1 Activity: Strategic Planning and Policy

4.11    Level of Service: 17.0.1.1 Advice to Council on high priority policy and planning issues that affect the City. Advice is aligned with and delivers on the governance expectations as evidenced through the Council Strategic Framework.

17.   Netsal Sports Centre Limited - Proposed Consultation on Ground Lease in Nga Puna Wai

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

20/100323

Presenter(s) / Te kaipāhō:

Russel Wedge, Team Leader Parks Policy & Advisory, David Kuru, Team Leader Parks Recreation & Planning

 

 

1.   Purpose of Report / Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Council to approve the commencement of public consultation for a ground lease to Netsal Sports Centre Limited (referred to as Netsal) to enable the construction of an indoor recreation centre at Nga Puna Wai.

2.   Executive Summary / Te Whakarāpopoto Matua

2.1       There is a shortage of high quality multi court indoor facilities in Christchurch.

2.2       Netsal is an organisation that has been established specifically to develop, own and operate a 10-court indoor sports facility. Netsal is owned by Christchurch Netball Centre Incorporated and No 6 Federation of New Zealand Football (FUTSAL), known as Mainland Football.

2.3       Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub is ideally set up to accommodate a multi court indoor facility. Netsal will complement the sporting activities already being offered at Nga Puna Wai that aligns with the Council’s strategic priority to ‘enable active citizenship and connected communities”.

2.4       The proposed location for Netsal in Nga Puna Wai is on a recreation reserve and subject to the Reserves Act 1977. A ground lease is proposed for the Netsal building and under section 54(1)(b) Reserves Act 1977 public consultation and a Hearings Panel are required before a lease could be considered by the Council. Nga Puna Wai is considered a metropolitan asset and the final decision is determined by Council.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Council:

1.         Approve the commencement of public consultation pursuant to section 54(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977 for a lease on a Recreation Reserve of 13,240m2 to Netsal Sports Centre Limited over the proportion of land Lot 3 DP 73928 for a term of 33 years (minus 1 day) in Nga Puna Wai (refer Attachment A).

2.         Agree that a hearings panel be convened to consider all written and oral submissions to report back to Council for consideration for a decision.

 

4.   Context/Background / Te Horopaki

Issue or Opportunity / Ngā take, Ngā Whaihua rānei

4.1       There is a shortage of high quality multi court indoor facilities in Christchurch. The city is one of the few in New Zealand where there is not at least one multi court indoor facility.

4.2       Netsal has been established to develop, own and operate a 10-court indoor sports facility in Christchurch.

4.3       Netsal is owned by the Christchurch Netball Centre Incorporated (CNC), being the entity responsible for community netball in Christchurch and No 6 Federation of New Zealand Football (Futsal), known as Mainland Football.

4.4       Netball in Christchurch is beginning to lag behind other main New Zealand cities in terms of participation growth.  This is potentially a consequence of the lack of indoor facilities and the large geographic spread of outside facilities.

4.5       Futsal is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing sports and is usually played on indoor courts.  In Christchurch, current participation rates are significantly below that of other cities.

4.6       A large indoor facility will have benefits for being able to accommodate a range of other indoor sports organisations and diverse community groups.

4.7       Netsal are uniquely placed to develop, own and operate a 10-court indoor sports facility in the larger Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub that meets the wider needs of Netball, Futsal and the community (refer Attachment B, Netsal Sports Centre Limited Lease Proposal – Nga Puna Wai)

Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub

4.8       Nga Puna Wai is Council owned land at 189 Wigram Road, Sockburn and comprised in Computer Freehold Register CB/42C/1204. The area is classified as a recreation reserve and subject to the Reserves Act 1977.  Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub Trust is based in Nga Puna Wai.

4.9       Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub Trust was established to support and promote the development, governance, strategic planning, operation and use of a community facility at Nga Puna Wai for:

·     Sports competition, events, programmes and activities in athletics, tennis, hockey and rugby league at local, regional, national and international levels and to be a place to show-case these sports

·       Other sports competitions, events, programmes and activities at local, regional, national and international levels of other sports so as to service the needs of many sports in Christchurch

·     Local community sport and recreation for casual participation, with a vibrant social environment and sports education and participation.

4.10    The Strategic vision and direction for the operation and development of Ngā Puna Wai and Canterbury Agricultural Park is detailed in the Ngā Puna Wai and Canterbury Agricultural Park Management Plan 2010.

4.11    The addition of the proposed Netsal facility is consistent with the Goals, Objectives and Policies of the Ngā Puna Wai and Canterbury Agricultural Park Management Plan.

4.12    The collaborative partnership approach aligns with the Council’s strategic priority to 'enable active citizenship and connected communities'. The aim is to continue this approach through the facility operations to support more people, being more active, more often. 

Proposed new building

4.13    The proposed Netsal building is located in the south-west side of Nga Puna Wai. The building footprint is approximately 9,930m2 and the proposed lease area is approximately 13,240m2.  The leased area is 147.1 metre long on the north and south sides and 90 metres wide on the east and west sides (refer Attachment B, Netsal Sports Centre Limited Lease Proposal – Nga Puna Wai).

4.14    The leased area will include approximately 52 car parks located next to the north and west side of the building. These will be for the exclusive use of the facility. The remaining car parks around the east, north and west sides of the building will be available to the public and park user at all times. The building has a service driveway entered from Augustine Drive that leads to the rear of the building where the service delivery entrance is located.

4.21    The proposed area of land in Nga Puna Wai for the Netsal facility is held under the Reserves Act 1977 as Recreation Reserve and the ground lease for the facility is subject to section 54(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977:

lease to any voluntary organisation part of the reserve for the erection of stands, pavilions, gymnasiums, and, subject to sections 44 and 45, other buildings and structures associated with and necessary for the use of the reserve for outdoor sports, games, or other recreational activities, or lease to any voluntary organisation any such stands, pavilions, gymnasiums, and, subject to section 44, other buildings or structures already on the reserve, which lease shall be subject to the further provisions set out in Schedule 1 relating to leases of recreation reserves issued pursuant to this paragraph:

provided that a lease granted by the administering body may, with the prior consent of the Minister given on the ground that he or she considers it to be in the public interest, permit the erection of buildings and structures for sports, games, or public recreation not directly associated with outdoor recreation:

4.22    Section 54(2) of the Reserves Act 1977 governs the public notification and consultation process:

Before granting any lease or licence under subsection (1) (other than a lease or licence to which the second proviso to paragraph (d) applies), the administering body shall give public notice in accordance with section 119 specifying the lease or licence proposed to be granted, and shall give full consideration in accordance with section 120 to all objections and submissions in relation to the proposal received pursuant to the said section 120.

 

4.23    Section 119(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977in relation to Recreation Reserves states:

(i)            once in a newspaper circulating in the area in which the reserve or proposed reserve is situated; and

(ii)          in such other newspapers (if any) as the administering body decides

 

4.24    Section 120(1) of the Reserves Act 1977 in relation to Recreation Reserves states

a)    any person or organisation may object to the Minister or administering body, as the case may be, against, or make submissions with respect to, the proposal; and

d)     the Minister or the administering body, as the case may be, shall give full consideration to every objection or submission received before deciding to proceed with the proposal

 

4.25    Section 120(2) of the Reserves Act 1977 states:

 Every public notice to which subsection (1) applies shall specify the right to object or make submissions conferred by this section and the place to which and the date by which any objections or submissions are to be sent.

Dealing Unilaterally – Netsal

4.26    Netsal was formed in response to a demand for an indoor sporting facility to meet the needs of Christchurch Netball Centre Incorporated and No 6 Federation of New Zealand Football (Futsal) know as Mainland Football. The Christchurch Netball Centre Incorporated is responsible for community netball in Christchurch.

4.27    The two sporting organisations have been working together for a number of years to provide an indoor facility that will meet the current and future needs of their sports. The Netsal facility will be available to other sporting groups that want to use an indoor sporting facility.

4.28    The following sporting groups will be able to use the Netsal facility, which have identified a lack of indoor court space in Christchurch: basketball, korfball, volleyball, indoor hockey, handball, tennis, bowls, physical and intellectual disabled sports groups and activities, seniors and retired sports groups and activities, multi-cultural groups and associated activities.

 

 

Dealing Unilaterally – Legal Considerations

4.29    There are a number of matters that need to be considered when contemplating a unilateral dealing. These matters are outlined in Attachment B, Legal Advice Dealing Unilaterally. 

Legal Considerations – Accepting the Proposal and Granting a Lease

4.30    There are a number of relevant legal considerations when making a decision about the proposal received and the future use of the property.  These matters are outlined in Attachment C, Dealing Unilaterally (Lease) in relation to Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub.

The Ngā Puna Wai and Canterbury Agricultural Park Management Plan 2010

4.31    There is a current park Management Plan for Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub approved by the Council in 2010 with amendments made and approved in 2015.  Leasing and licencing is in conformity and contemplated in Section 4.1.6 of the Management Plan.

Minister of Conservation Consent

4.32    The prior consent of the Minister of Conservation is not required for the administering body to grants a lease or licence where:

·        The administering body of the recreation reserve is a territorial authority or regional council; and

·        The reserve is vested in that territorial authority or regional council; and

·        A management plan for that reserve has been approved in in accordance with section 41 of the Reserves Act 1977; and

·        The lease or licence is in conformity with and contemplated by that management plan.

The above criteria have been complied with and therefore the Minister’s approval is not required.

 

Strategic Alignment / Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

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

4.33.1 Activity: Parks & Foreshore

5.   Options Analysis / Ngā Kōwhiringa Tātari

Options Considered / Ngā Kōwhiringa Whaiwhakaaro

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

·   Approve the commencement of public consultation for a ground lease to Netsal (preferred option)

·   To decline the commencement of public consultation (not preferred)

5.2       The following options were considered but ruled out

·   Recommend an alternative location in Ngai Puna Wai – there is a shortage of open space large enough to accommodate the facilities without compromising or building over existing sporting activities and facilities

·   Recommend Netsal uses another park or reserve within the city   - there are no other parks or reserves in the city that could accommodate the size of this facility; provide the infrastructure required such as close transport access for vehicles and cyclists; car parking space; and stormwater treatment facilities.

Options Descriptions / Ngā Kōwhiringa

5.3       Preferred Option: Approve the commencement of public consultation for a ground lease to Netsal.

5.3.1   Option Advantages

·     The Netsal facility will be located within a larger sporting complex that already has good accessibility to the wider Christchurch community

·     Enables Netsal within the Nga Puna Wai Hub to leverage opportunities for sports bodies to collaborate, find efficiencies and improve the level of service and opportunity for people wishing to play, participate in active recreation and play sport

·     Enables Netsal as part of the Nga Puna Wai Hub to leverage volunteer, philanthropic and community partnerships to reduce costs for sports organisations and participants, improving sustainability and access.

·     The integration with the existing Nga Puna Wai sporting hub will provide convenience to users, their families, spectators and the wider community as a major city sporting venue.

·     The Netsal facility will be able to attract and host national and international indoor sporting competitions, which are not possible at the moment due to a lack of suitable facilities.

5.3.2   Option Disadvantages

·     There are no significant disadvantages

5.4       Other Option Considered Decline the commencement of public consultation for a ground lease to Netsal within Nga Puna Wai. Public consultation is not undertaken as the first part of the process for a ground lease to Netsal under the Reserves Act 1977.

5.4.1   Option Advantages

·     There are no significant advantages to this option.

5.4.2   Option Disadvantages

·     The netball and football sporting groups will be restricted in their ability to provide suitable indoor sporting venues for their sports

·     The citizens of Christchurch will be disadvantaged by a lack of indoor netball and football training and competition venues

·     It will be difficult for sporting groups to attract new members and increase their patronage of their sports due to lack of suitable indoor sporting venues in the city

·     The city will be disadvantaged in attracting and hosting national and international netball and football competitions due to the lack of suitable indoor sporting

6.   Community Views and Preferences / Ngā mariu ā-Hāpori

6.1       Public consultation will be undertaken as required by section 54(1)(b), s 119, s120 Reserves Act 1977.

Submitters will have an opportunity to make a verbal presentation to the Hearings Panel on their submission if they desire.

6.3       The Hearings Panel after deliberating the submissions will prepare a report to the Council with recommendations for the Council’s consideration.

7.   Legal Implications / Ngā Hīraunga ā-Ture

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

7.2       This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit, however, the Unit have reviewed and advised on whether Netsal Sports Centre Limited could be considered to be a “voluntary organisation” for the purposes of a proposed lease of recreation reserve under s54(1)(b) of the Reserves Act 1977.

7.3       The Legal Services Unit have advised that based of the provisions of the constitution of Netsal, they believe Netsal would satisfy the Reserves Act definition of “voluntary organisation” (Refer Attachment D, Legal Advice Netsal considered to be a Voluntary Organisation).

8.   Risks / Ngā tūraru

8.1       There are minimal risks, if any at this stage as the Council is engaging with the public and interested stakeholders on the proposal to grant a ground lease to Netsal.


 

9.   Next Steps / Ngā mahinga ā-muri

9.1       Approval is required from the Council to commence public consultation on the proposal
