4.   Public Forum / Te Huinga Whānui

Part B

 

4.1      Disc Golf

Paul Deacon, Chairperson of the Christchurch Disc Golf Association, addressed the Board regarding a proposal for a Disc golf course to be installed in Warren Park.  Mr Deacon requested Board support for its application to the Christchurch City Council for the Association’s proposal.

The Christchurch Disc Golf Association’s aim is to promote, maintain and develop the game of Disc Golf and it has recently applied for the status of registered charity.  The Association believes that Warren Park is ideal for a Disc Golf course, the park has mature trees allowing for an interesting course design, public toilets, drinking water and extensive parking.  Many families live within walking distance of the park.

             Mr Deacon said that the course will not infringe on either summer or winter sport pitches and has been designed with safety in mind.  He explained that disc golf is a multi-use activity that shares the multi-use spaces of parks with other park users (who, by the rules of the game take priority).

           After questions from Board members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Deacon for his presentation, on behalf of the Christchurch Disc Golf Association.

 

4.2      Halswell Rugby League Club

Lance Austin and Colin Fenwick, representing the Halswell Rugby League Club, addressed the Board providing an update on the club’s proposal to build new clubrooms.

Halswell Rugby League have obtained a building consent for a new building and is currently going through the process to obtain a resource consent. The proposed building will not occupy the current footprint of the clubrooms and will be elevated. 

The Board were informed that there is an opportunity to consolidate the three current leases over areas of Halswell Domain into a single lease and is working with Council staff to do so.

After questions from Board members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Austin and Mr Fenwick for their presentation, on behalf of Halswell Rugby League Club.

 

4.3      Christchurch Holiday Homes

Sue Harrison and Debbie Rehu, addressed the Board on behalf of Christchurch Holiday Homes regarding proposed changes to the Christchurch District Plan in order to better manage short term rental and home-share accommodation in Christchurch.

Ms Harrison and Ms Rehu expressed their concerns regarding the proposed changes and specifically how these will affect those providing self- catering homes in the wider Christchurch area.

Ms Harrison and Ms Rehu consider that there is a need for self -catering temporary accommodation houses and believe that there is an opportunity for the Council to recognise the role that holiday homes and Airbnb’s play, stating that they would be keen to work with the Council.

After questions from Board members, the Chairperson thanked Ms Harrison and Ms Rehu for their presentation, on behalf of Christchurch Holiday Homes.

4.4      Greater Hornby Residents Association

             Ross Houliston, representing the Greater Hornby Residents’ Association, addressed the Board regarding the Discretionary Response Funding Application from Southern Christchurch Residents Air Protection Incorporated for an Air Quality Expert. 

The Greater Hornby Residents Association fully supports the application.

Additionally, Mr Houliston signalled the Association’s intention to request that the Christchurch City Council re-zone the area between (i) Springs Road and Shands Road and (ii) Marshs Road and the Southern Motorway (that has not already been developed), to rural or light industrial and that it be operated only between the hours of 6am and 8pm. This change would be to enable a buffer zone between heavy industrial and residents.            

After questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Houliston for his presentation, on behalf of the Greater Hornby Residents’ Association.

4.5      Halswell Residents Association and Halswell Community Project

             Ross McFarlane on behalf of the Halswell Residents Association and Halswell Community Project, addressed the Board regarding the proposal for sale of surplus land at 66 Quaifes Road in Halswell. 

Mr McFarlane thanked the Community Board for laying the report on the table noting that both groups believe that area is too valuable to sell.

Mr McFarlane stated that considerable funds were received by Council through developer contributions as a result of developments in Halswell. The area is currently in a phase of extensive development and the site should be kept for future community use such as a neighbourhood or sport park, this is an investment in the community’s future.            

Finally Mr McFarlane suggested that perhaps it was time for Council to revisit its current model of developer contributions, resulting in a change to the developer contributions policy.

After questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Mr McFarlane for his presentation.

8.     Relocation of an existing bus passenger shelter and bus stop extension beside 59 Waimairi Road

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

Report of / Te Pou Matua:

Serena Chia, Graduate Transport Engineer, serena.chia@ccc.govt.nz

General Manager / Pouwhakarae:

David Adamson, GM City Services, david.adamson@ccc.govt.nz

 

 

1.   Executive Summary / Te Whakarāpopoto Matua

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve the relocation of an existing bus passenger shelter and bus stop extension beside 59 Waimairi Road.

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to a request received from Novo Group Ltd on behalf of their client who is redeveloping the area beside 59 Waimairi Road. The new driveway crossing to the proposed development will be located where the existing bus passenger shelter is located and will also conflict with the front of the existing bus stop.

1.3       The existing bus passenger shelter is therefore proposed to be relocated slightly further north, but still beside 59 Waimairi Road. The bus stop marking are also proposed to be extended further north to avoid the front and back door of the bus coinciding with the new vehicle crossing.

1.4       In addition, the existing overall bus stop length does not comply with the minimum recommended standard bus stop layout. Extending the bus stop marking will ensure that the minimum overall bus stop length of 31 metres is achieved, and allows sufficient length for buses to pull into and out of the stop. 

1.5       The proposed overall marked bus stop is about 33 metres. This bus stop marking is not marked as a typical bus stop that includes the no stopping restrictions for the entry and exit taper to the bus stop. This is to omit the cost required to remove 12 metres of the existing bus stop marking and replace them with no stopping restrictions.

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

1.7       The level of significance was determined by consideration of the criteria set out in the Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy. 

 

2.   Officer Recommendations / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board approves:

Bus passenger shelter

1.         In accordance with Section 339(1) of the Local Government Act 1974:

a.         The relocation of a bus passenger shelter to the west side of Waimairi Road commencing at a point approximately 45 metres north of its intersection with Rountree Street (measured from the prolongation of the northern kerb line of Rountree Street) and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of 3.6 metres.

 

Bus stop markings

2.         Pursuant to Clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017:

a.         That all existing parking and stopping restrictions on the west side of Waimairi Road commencing at a point approximately 20 metres north of its intersection with Rountree Street (measure from the prolongation of the northern kerb line of Rountree Street) and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of approximately 23 metres, be revoked.

b.         That the stopping of vehicles is prohibited at all times on the west side of Waimairi Road commencing at a point approximately 26 metres north of its intersection with Rountree Street (measure from the prolongation of the northern kerb line of Rountree Street) and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of approximately 12 metres. 

c.         That a bus stop be installed on the west side of Waimairi Road commencing at a point approximately 38 metres north of its intersection with Rountree Street (measured from the prolongation of the northern kerb line of Rountree Street) and extending in a northerly direction for a distance of approximately 15 metres.

3.         That these resolutions take effect when the traffic control devices that evidence the restrictions described in 2 are in place (or removed, in the case of revocations).

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations / Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1       The existing bus passenger shelter is proposed to be relocated further north by approximately 8 metres to allow free movement of vehicles into and out of the new driveway. The relocated shelter and the extended bus stop line markings will remain beside 59 Waimairi Road.

3.2       The location of the bus stop, and hence the relocated bus passenger shelter relative to their surrounding locality, is indicated in Figure 1.

Figure 1: Bus stop beside 59 Waimairi Road.

3.3       The bus stop is serviced by the Orbiter, which operates to a 10 minute scheduled frequency during weekdays and a 30 minute frequency during weekends.

3.4       Recent passenger boarding numbers indicate about 65 passengers (March 2019 patronage data) use the bus stop beside 59 Waimairi Road to board a bus per day.

3.5       The advantages of this option include:

·   The developer pays for the physical cost to relocate the shelter and extending the bus stop marking and has agreed to do so.

·   The front and rear door of the bus is not located over the new vehicle crossing, which is important to ensure passenger accessibility and kerb provision are achieved. 

3.6       The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Reallocation of one unrestricted on-street parking space. There are sufficient on-street parking capacity in the general area for other motorists to continue to park on-street.

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered / Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       Option 2 –Relocate the bus passenger shelter and no change to the existing bus stop. The front of the bus stop would be located across the new driveway crossing which poses risks and inconvenience to people using the bus stop and vehicles accessing the driveway.

5.   Detail / Te Whakamahuki

Analysis Criteria / Ngā Paearu Wetekina

5.1       All new bus stops are planned and implemented in accordance with the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009) and the Christchurch City Council’s Construction Standard Specifications (2018).

5.2       Staff were contacted by Novo Group on behalf of the property developer. Due to the location of the new vehicle crossing as part of the redevelopment, the developer has requested the bus passenger shelter to be relocated and bus stop markings to be extended.

5.3       The bus passenger shelter relocation option was identified by staff after confirming with Novo Group the location of the new vehicle crossing.

Community Views and Preferences / Ngā mariu ā-Hāpori

5.4       The consultation notice and feedback form including the plan were sent and mailed to the property owners and occupiers of the below addresses.

·   61 Waimairi Road (six units)

·   59 Waimairi Road; and

·   57 Waimairi Road (three units)

5.5       A total of nine responses were received. Seven responses were in favour of the proposal and two responses were not in favour of the proposal. One of the concerns was the loss of on-street parking, and that the bus stop is harmful to the elderly residents who live at 61 Waimairi Road. Feedback received by submitters is provided in Attachment B of this report.

6.   Policy Framework Implications / Ngā Hīraunga ā- Kaupapa here

Strategic Alignment / Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

10.   Waimairi Road (Peer Street to Maidstone Road) Road Marking Upgrade - Proposed Parking Restriction and Cycle Lanes

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

20/743382

Report of / Te Pou Matua:

Hamid Mirbaha – Snr Transport Network Planner

General Manager / Pouwhakarae:

Richard Osborne, Head of Transport

 

 

1.   Executive Summary / Te Whakarāpopoto Matua

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to consider options to upgrade lane marking and parking provision on Waimairi Road between Peer Street and Maidstone Road to improve cycling safety and amenities for residents and cyclists along the section of the road.

1.2       To implement the proposed cycle lanes a removal of on-road parking spaces on one side of the road is required. This includes approximately 190 metres on the eastern side mostly south of Dovedale Avenue and 70 metres on the western side north of Maydell Street. The proposal also include a 120-minute restriction for the remaining on-street parking spaces (approximately 240 metres) along the road section. The restriction aims to reduce the long-term occupancy of parking spaces by non-residents, leaving more available spaces for the residents and improve safety and visibility to access driveways. The proposed restriction will be applicable during 8AM to 6PM, Monday to Friday, March to November.

1.3       The proposed works are proposed to be implemented at the same time as the planned road re-structuring works (road base and pavement). The work was planned for delivery in the financial year 2020 but has been reprioritised to financial year 2021 due to COVID-19 implications. The proposed combination of works will minimise the direct and indirect costs of the project delivery and results in better aesthetic results and higher value for money.

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

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations / Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1       Waimairi Road is a Minor Arterial Road in the Christchurch District Plan. The road caters for more than 24,000 vehicles per day around 3% of which being heavy vehicles. The kerb to kerb width of the road pavement is 12.7 metres while the boundary to boundary width is 19.7 metres including 3.5 metres footpaths and grass berms on each side. The existing cross section provides two extra wide traffic lanes of 4.35 metres and two parking lanes (discontinued at some sections) on either sides.

3.2       Waimairi Road, north and south of Dovedale Avenue, is currently catering for up to 300 cyclists per day in both directions. Without any cycling facilities those cyclists are sharing the road space with relatively high volumes of light and heavy vehicles while avoiding other roadside risks such as access to driveways and parking manoeuvres. There have been four crashes involving cyclists since 2011 over the section between Maidstone Road to Peer Street including two injury crashes. In one of the injury crashes the cyclist was riding on the footpath and crashed with a car driving out of their driveway.

3.3       Uni-Cycle Major Cycle Route (crossing Waimairi Road at Dovedale Avenue) has provided a high quality separated route for cyclists to travel between CBD and Avonhead area. The number of cyclists on the Major Cycle Route has been steadily growing since the implementation by nearly 20% annual growth. The cycle counter installed on the route between Clyde Road and Fine Arts Road is currently recording up to 500 cyclists a day. This indicates there is an existing and rapidly growing demand for cycling on the nearby roads which connect to the Major Cycle Route.

3.4       The section of Waimairi Road has been identified with a very high priority (Priority 1) in the Council’s Local Cycleways Business Case. The proposal will extend the reach of the Major Cycle Route to Greers Road from the north and high density residential lands in Upper Riccarton from the south. Provision of cycle lanes is considered as a basic level of safety improvement and is likely to encourage less confident cyclists to consider cycling and as a result release the latent demand for cycling.

3.5       A seamless connectivity between the Major Cycle Route and users’ final destinations will ensure a safer, more convenient and pleasant end-to-end cycling journey. This will encourage a higher use of the cycling network a healthier and more environment friendly life-style which is in-line with the council’s high level strategies and environmental targets.

3.6       The proposed road marking does not impact the vehicular capacity of the road and offers wide traffic lanes appropriate for the volume of traffic and level of heavy vehicles. The proposed cross-section includes two traffic lanes of 3.5 to 3.6 metres width, two cycle lanes and one on-street parking lane on the 12.7 metres width of the road. The Christchurch Cycle Design Guidelines specifies 1.8 metres as the minimum width requirement for a safe cycle lane in such busy road environment.

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered / Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       Do nothing

4.1.1   Benefits:

·     Retention of unrestricted on-street parking spaces along Waimairi Road;

·     No additional cost.

4.1.2   Dis-benefits:

·     Existing and growing safety risk for cyclists on the road particularly combined with the growing demand and volume of cars and cyclists on the road;

·     Constant competition between the local residents and non-residents over the available car park spaces due to the proximity to the University of Canterbury.

4.2       Construction of shared pedestrian/cycleways on footpaths

4.2.1   Benefits:

·     Retention of unrestricted on-road parking spaces along the road;

4.2.2   Dis-benefits:

·     The existing footpath is 1.6~1.7m wide which doesn’t satisfy the minimum requirements of 2.5~3m for a shared path based on the Christchurch Cycle Design Guidelines. Grass berms need to be removed along the entire length to accommodate the minimum requirements of a shared path. There are a large number of power poles on the grass berms which need to be removed. Crossing point at the local streets should also be upgraded to conform with the minimum safety requirements of a shared path;

·     The removal of berms, relocation of light poles and provision of shared crossing facilities at the side roads will require a considerable investment;

·     Should the shared path be constructed on one or both sides of the road, there would be a very limited inter-visibility between vehicles and cyclists at the driveways due to the proximity of the shared path and fences. Cyclists would basically be invisible to drivers existing driveways until they reach to the conflict points. This coupled with the large number of off-street parking spaces and residential units on both sides of the road would potentially create an even bigger safety concern than the current situation;

·     Constant competition between the local residents and non-residents over the available car park spaces due to the proximity to the University of Canterbury.

5.3       General themes

5.3.1   The people who supported the cycle lanes said these were a good idea on such a busy road. There are two points which needed to be looked at; Waimairi Road and Peer Street also near the Waimairi Road shops.

5.3.2   The people who did not support it said people do not use cycle lanes and if there needed to be one, why can’t the grass strips alongside the footpath be utilised.  Also not to take away more parking to accommodate the cycle lanes.

5.3.3   People who supported the parking restrictions said this would help with the environment and hopefully encourage people not to use their cars.

5.3.4   People who did not want the parking restrictions said the side streets will become busier, and that students will have to park further away from university (the university car parking fees are over $450 per year, this also does not guarantee a parking space). One person said they would drop out of university if this was made a thing. Parking is already awful why would you take even more of it away, it’s such a busy road.

5.4       Common themes

5.4.1   Some of the common themes from both the cycle lanes and the parking restrictions were:

·    Better for children.

·    University students want some parking, some do not have a choice but to drive.

·    If these changes are implemented, it will hit students hard.

·    Parking in side streets will get worse.

·    Encourage more cycling.

·    Take out the berms and use as cycle and pedestrian lane.

·    Separated cycle lane not painted.

·    There needs to be cheaper campus parking.

6.   Detail / Te Whakamahuki

6.1       The Uni-Cycle Major Cycle Route which crosses Waimairi Road at Dovedale Avenue, has provided a high quality route for cyclists to travel between the city and Avonhead.

6.2       The number of cyclists on the route has been steadily growing by up to 20% per year. Waimairi Road currently caters to nearly 300 cyclists per day which is likely to grow with the increasing influence of the Major Cycle Route.

6.3       Without any cycling facilities cyclists are exposed to live vehicle traffic and traffic undertaking parking manoeuvres. Since 2011 there have been four crashes involving cyclists in this area with two resulting in injury. The proposed cycle lanes will provide a basic level of safety for the rising number of cyclists.

6.4       To accommodate the proposed cycle lanes a permanent removal of on-street parking on the east side of Waimairi Road between Peer Street and Dovedale Avenue, on the west side of the road between 135 and 195 Waimairi Road and on a small section outside 168 Waimairi Road (see Attachment B).

6.5       To keep parking spaces available to local residents, a P120 parking restriction has been proposed for the remaining on-street parking spaces which applies from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, March to November.

6.6       Waimairi Road, between Peer Street and Maidstone Road has been planned for a pavement reconstruction in financial year 2021. As part of this process the proposed lane marking layout will replace the old one along with the new pavement.

3.   Policy Framework Implications

Strategic Alignment

3.1       The Council’s strategic priorities have been considered in formulating the recommendations in this report, however this area of work is not specifically covered by an identified priority.

3.2       The proposal is consistent with the Christchurch Suburban Parking Policy. Within Policy 1 of Suburban Parking Policy, kerbside road space is prioritised and includes a particular order for Commercial areas.   Short stay parking is classified as 7th priority and above commuter parking which is classified as 8th priority.  

3.3       The first priority for suburban road space is safety and the second is movement and amenity. Whilst the proposal includes creating new on-street parking spaces, safety, movement and amenity are maintained for the passage of large commercial vehicles. Also, there are no other competing on-street uses such as bus stops, taxis. Loading or mobility spaces which would be ranked higher than normal on-street parking. Consequently, the creation of new on-street parking opportunities would be consistent with this policy.

Decision Making Authority Te Mana Whakatau

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

3.5       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 stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

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

Policy Consistency

3.7       The decision is consistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies.

Impact on Mana Whenua

3.8       The decision does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Mana Whenua, their culture and traditions.

Climate Change Impact Considerations

3.9       The impacts of this proposal upon Climate Change are anticipated to be minor.

Accessibility Considerations

3.10    This proposal has no adverse effects upon access by walking and cycling and only effects on-street car parking.

4.   Context/Background / Te Horopaki

Issue / Ngā take

4.1       Staff have received two separate requests within Waterloo Business Park. The first related to a business located in the ‘southern section’ at 4 Islington Avenue (Chain Protection Service, hereon referred to as CPS) and the other, from the café business at 23 Islington Avenue.

4.2       CPS explained that as their vehicles leave their car park, the visibility to the right is blocked by a parked vehicle. Furthermore, their own suppliers and commercial vehicles often have difficulty turning left into the premises, due to the parked vehicles, especially if there is another vehicle waiting to turn out of the car park.

4.3       The café is located in the ‘central section’ of Islington Avenue and shares the same overall building with 5 other businesses at 23 Islington Avenue. They indicated that their customer demand can often exceed the available parks in the area, due to the limited on-street opportunities.  The context is described for each of the two locations as follows:

Southern section

4.4       Staff contacted the two businesses to understand the issues and visited the site.  The overall width of Islington Avenue is 11.5 metres, with 2 x 2.1 metre shoulders and 7.3 metres of 2 lane road. This is ideal for the passage of commercial vehicles.   There is a parking shoulder on both sides of the road, with the exception of the north east section adjacent to 8 Islington Avenue, which has no stopping restrictions.  The west side consist of vacant sections, whereas the eastern side has multiple industrial units with a succession of accesses.

4.5       Further to observations on site, staff agree with the concerns of CPS that the visibility to the right of their access, is impaired by one parking space. Consequently, staff have recommended a short section of no stopping restriction.

4.6       During the site visit, staff examined the available road space and the requirements of adjacent businesses, since one parked car would be displaced elsewhere.  It was apparent that the existing no stopping restrictions were extensively in place on Islington Avenue, yet some restrictions did not necessarily appear to be justified.  Staff recognise that some no stopping restrictions are necessary to protect visibility splays or maintain the road space for large commercial vehicles.

4.7       Between 6 and 8 Islington Avenue, there is a long building frontage to the Safety Apparel Ltd building which will not be subject to a new access location. Consequently, staff consider that much of the no stopping restrictions on this side are unnecessary and could be replaced with on-street parking. This would not compromise the safe movement of trucks in this area.  Consequently this aspect has been added to the proposal, which creates 4 parking spaces.

4.8       Staff have recommended no stopping restrictions at key locations to maintain the required space available for turning vehicles and to protect visibility spays and forward sight lines.

Central section

4.9       This section (approximately 125m long) is located immediately south west of Innovation Road.  The southern side has continuous no stopping restriction, as does the majority of the north side.  In terms of land use the south side has a unit for Mainfreight; the north side has a multiple use office building with 6 businesses including the café. This address has a 2 way access on its western side and an exit only on its eastern side.

4.10    Some on-site parking is available, though is mainly angled parking or allocated to staff at the other businesses. The site layout is especially difficult for larger commercial vehicles who may wish to stop for a coffee.

4.11    Staff spoke with the café owner and other businesses in the area. It was agreed that it would be appropriate to introduce short stay parking to support the café business, especially for larger vehicle that could not access the on-site parking.  A 30 minute period was agreed to be suitable and that approximately 2 short stay parking spaces would be created.

4.12    Staff assessed the preferred location between the two accesses to 23 Islington Avenue and particularly whether turning space would remain possible for semi-trailer trucks driving to and from the main two way access to 23 Islington Avenue.  Further to feedback from local businesses, staff reviewed the suitability of no stopping restrictions elsewhere and identified sections where this could be replaced with 8 other new on-street parking opportunities.  

4.13    Vehicle tracking was undertaken to check that turns were feasible for all directions, with all the proposed parking in effect. These demonstrated that the available turning paths would not be made any worse with the proposed parking bays.

4.2       The proposal is consistent with the Christchurch Suburban Parking Policy. Policy 1 relates to prioritising suburban road space according to Table 1 - Road priority matrix.

4.3       Within the matrix, the second priority is to provide movement and amenity, which is the main purpose of the new restrictions, since it maintains the road space for drivers turning in and out of the local intersections and using the sections of road with a tight bend.

Impact on Mana Whenua

4.8       The decision does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Mana Whenua, their culture and traditions.

Climate Change Impact Considerations

4.9       The impacts of this proposal upon Climate Change are anticipated to be minor.

Accessibility Considerations

4.10    This proposal purely enhances the accessibility of all vehicle movements. It has no adverse effects upon access by walking and cycling and only effects on-street car parking.

5.   Context/Background / Te Horopaki

Issue / Ngā take

5.1       Staff have received requests from residents within this neighbourhood, concerning the effect of on-street parking upon road safety.

5.2       Residents indicated that the on-street parking activity is often intensive throughout the day and all week, due to staff employed at the nearby Longhurst Medical Hub who choose to park in this area.

Context

5.3       Staff contacted the local residents to understand the issues and subsequently visited the site.

5.4       Maka Lane is a private lane and has a crescent layout, connecting with Packard Crescent at 2 locations to the north and south.  This proposal relates to the northern location.  This location is also situated close to a right angled bend in the road alignment. Presently there are no parking restrictions on street. 

5.5       This location is within the Longhurst residential subdivision with housing on both sides. The Longhurst Medical Hub is approximately 100m away and there is a footpath link located approximately 50 metres north east of Maka Lane which provides a walking connection to and from the Hub and adjacent residential areas.

5.6       Staff checked the crash history at this location; none have been reported at this location.  However, staff consider that the visibility splay and forward sight lines are substandard at this location and there are safety risks to drivers and potentially pedestrians crossing nearby.

5.7       Observations on site indicated that parking was intensive on street at different times of the day. Vehicles parked on both sides of Packard Crescent and on Maka Lane. It was apparent the forward sight lines were poor and drivers often had to drive in the middle of the road. This has the positive effect of keeping speeds down along the street, though at the site there were a combination of potential hazards as mentioned earlier which staff consider warrant a small extent of restrictions, to reduce the safety risk.

5.8       Staff have recommended no stopping restrictions at key locations to maintain the required space available for turning vehicles and to protect visibility spays and forward sight lines.

3.4       The decision affects the following Community Board area:

·     Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.

4.   Policy Framework Implications

Strategic Alignment

4.1       The Council’s strategic priorities have been considered in formulating the recommendations in this report; however, this area of work is not specifically covered by an identified priority.

4.2       The proposal is consistent with the Christchurch Suburban Parking Policy. Policy 1 relates to prioritising suburban road space according to Road priority matrix.

4.3       Within the matrix, the first priority is to maintain safety, which is the main purpose of the new restrictions, since it protects the forward sight lines at a tight bend, ensures that crossing pedestrians are visible and reduces the likelihood of drivers crossing the centre line. In contrast, on-street parking for residents is classified as the fifth (lowest) priority in residential areas.

Decision Making Authority Te Mana Whakatau

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

4.5       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 stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

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

Policy Consistency

4.7       The decision is consistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies.

Impact on Mana Whenua

4.8       The decision does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Mana Whenua, their culture and traditions.

Climate Change Impact Considerations

4.9       The impacts of this proposal upon Climate Change are anticipated to be minor.

Accessibility Considerations

4.10    This proposal purely enhances the accessibility of all vehicle movements. It has no adverse effects upon access by walking and cycling and only effects on-street car parking.

5.   Context/Background / Te Horopaki

Issue / Ngā take

5.1       Staff have received requests from a resident within this neighbourhood, concerning the effect of on-street parking upon road safety.

5.2       It was indicated that, due to the parking activity, drivers were required to go over the middle of Franco Road in the vicinity of a tight bend and access which connects with a busy pre-school.

Context

5.3       Staff contacted the local resident and visited the site.

5.4       Franco Road is a classified under the District Plan as local road and connects with Hendersons Road. It is a residential street with new properties on the north east side. The opposite side consists of empty sections, with the exception of the Stables Montessori pre-school. This pre-school is approximately 100m from Hendersons Road and has a dedicated two way access onto Franco Road. This operates on an informal give way basis.

5.5       The area of interest consists of the access to the pre-school and the bend in the road that lies between here and Hendersons Road. The street is relatively new, having only been constructed within the last 2 years.

5.6       During the site visit it was apparent that parking was intensive on street at different times of the day and the on-street parking occurred randomly on both sides of Franco Road. This suggested that owners were associated with different locations, such as residents vehicles, tradespersons working on the houses under construction or staff or family associated with the pre-school.

5.7       From a driver’s perspective, the forward sight lines were poor and drivers often had to drive in the middle of the road. This has the positive effect of keeping speeds down along the street, though even at slow speeds, there were instances of cars turning out of the pre-school and facing oncoming traffic having to drive along the middle of Franco Road.

5.8       There is also a formal, uncontrolled crossing point near the bend location (see photo 4). Parking was observed close to this location, which would have masked pedestrians attempting to cross the road. This was made worse by the fact that the crossing is situated near the bend in the road.

5.9       Staff examined the wider site and noted that there are numerous alternative locations that are available for parking (see photos 4 and 5). These are surfaced, marked and close to the area of concern. There are 8 angled parks between the bend and Hendersons Road. 2 angled parks near the bend and 12 situated near the pre-school.

5.10    The pre-school access and car park is not marked private, nor is gated and is available during evenings and weekends for members of the public.  Furthermore, from a personal security perspective, this car park is also overlooked by the properties on Franco Road (see photo 3).

5.11    Whilst the NZTA CAS database does not show recorded crashes at this location staff consider that the visibility splay and forward sight lines are substandard, whilst parking takes place and safety risks exist for drivers and potentially pedestrians crossing nearby.

5.12    Staff have recommended no stopping restrictions along the bend location and near the pre-school access to protect visibility splays and forward sight lines as well as maintaining the required space available for turning vehicles. Staff consider that there are sufficient alternative parking opportunities within a short walking distance.

6.   Options Analysis / Ngā Kōwhiringa Tātari

Options Considered Ngā Kōwhiringa Whaiwhakaaro

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

·     Option 1 - Install No Stopping Restrictions (preferred option).

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing.

6.2       No other options have been considered.

Options Descriptions / Ngā Kōwhiringa

6.3       Option One: Preferred Option:  Install No Stopping Restrictions.

6.3.1   Option Description: Install No Stopping restrictions in accordance with Attachment A.   

6.3.2   Option Advantages

·     Provide forward visibility and passing space for drivers approaching the bend on Franco Road.

·     Deter drivers from parking at the crossing.

·     Improves the sight lines approaching the pedestrian crossing at the bend

·     Ensure space is available for all vehicles to turn in and out of the access to the Kindergarten.

·     Improve safety for overtaking cyclists to ensure they are not required to ride across the middle of the street and face oncoming traffic.

·     Assist service vehicles such as rubbish trucks and delivery vehicles to access the street safely.

6.3.3   Option Disadvantages

·     Displaces parking to other locations.

6.4       Option Two: Do Nothing 

6.4.1   Option Description: Do not provide stopping restrictions.   

6.4.2   Option Advantages

·     No impact on on-street parking.

6.4.3   Option Disadvantages

·     Does not address the resident concerns over the poor visibility splay, lack of turning space and forward sight lines on Franco Road.

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

7.1       The owners and tenants of the properties located close to the proposal (3-11 Franco Road) and the Halswell Residents Association who were advised of the recommended option by letter and invited to comment.  This included the owner and operator of the pre-school.  This original proposal included an additional section of no stopping restrictions outside 7 Franco Road

7.2       Four responses were received who all supported the proposals on the west side of the street. The pre-school owner and operator objected to restrictions on the east side.

7.3       One property owner supported restrictions on both sides. Another owner at 5 Franco Road supported the restrictions on the west side and on the north east, which included outside his property frontage.  He requested the removal of a short section that was on the original proposal, outside 7 Franco Road and south east of the pre-school access.

7.4       Staff evaluated these responses and decided to remove the short section near 7 Franco Road. However the restrictions on the east side have been retained, since these are situated around a tight bend and the crossing location and their removal would compromise many of the safety benefits here. It was considered that the pre-school should ensure that staff and parents use the on-site parking or the other angled parks that are within 100m of the site.

7.5       The Team Leader Parking Compliance has indicated support for the preferred option. 

7.6       The Do Nothing option is inconsistent with local resident requests to improve sight lines, and improve turning space at this location.

8.   Resource Implications

Capex/Opex

8.1       Cost to Implement - $300

8.2       Maintenance/Ongoing costs – covered under the existing maintenance budget.

8.3       Funding Source – Traffic Operations Signs and Road Marking budget.

10.1    The risks identified are expected to be minor.

11. Next Steps / Ngā mahinga ā-muri

11.1    Approval is required by the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.
