Mr Houliston said in his opinion that  it is time to put ratepayer money into the suburbs rather than the inner city.

1.   Purpose of Report / Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1            The purpose of this report is to put in place a delegation to set meeting dates for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board’s Submissions Committee. This will enable the Submissions Committee to meet as required to formally compile comments and submissions on projects/policies and initiatives undergoing public consultation in a timely manner to meet the closure dates for submissions.

2.   Chairperson’s Recommendations

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

1.         Delegates to the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board Chairperson, the Chairperson of the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Submissions Committee and the Community Governance Manager for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board area the ability to schedule meeting dates for the Board’s Submissions Committee to meet to consider matters undergoing public consultation and respond on behalf of the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to submission opportunities as they arise.

3.   Detail / Te Whakamahuki

3.1       Public engagement and consultations regularly arise and are generally open for consultation for a month or more. The ability for the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board’s Submissions Committee to meet to consider matters undergoing public consultation and to respond on behalf of the Board to submission opportunities as they arise can be constrained by the need for the convening of Submission Committee meetings to be decided at a Board given that the Board generally meets twice monthly.

3.2       The Board is asked to consider delegating to the Community Board Chairperson, the Chairperson of the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Submissions Committee and the Community Governance Manager the ability to schedule future Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board Submissions Committee meetings.

3.3       This delegation will save time and resources in preparing a report each time a Submissions Committee meeting is needs to be scheduled and should allow for timely consideration and careful formulation of submissions and comments on items relevant to the Board.

3.4       Board members will still be consulted informally to ascertain whether they wish a Submissions Committee meeting be scheduled and the timing of the meeting.

This consent (RMA/2018/2889) was issued on 14 August 2019.

The consent holder has 5 years from the issue date to give effect to the consent, and Resource Management Act monitoring team is communicating with the consent holder regarding their plans for giving effect to the consent.

 As a result there are no current compliance issues.

4.2       Kyle Park Stormwater Pond

At the Board meeting on 4 August2020 the Board noted concerns regarding children swimming in a stormwater pond at Kyle Park and requested staff advice on whether additional planting could be undertaken to prevent public access to the Stormwater Pond.

Parks staff responded indicating that they will look into planting to block possible entry points to the water but in the interim signage has been erected at the site indicating that the pond is not suitable for swimming.

4.3       Angela Street Parking

At its meeting on 4 August 2020 the Board expressed concern regarding future parking in Angela Street, Bush Inn, after completion of new units in the street given that the development is unlikely to provide sufficient off street parking for occupants and there are no stopping restrictions in place along the street. The Board decided to request staff advice on the installation of “NO PARKING ON THE BERM” signs in Angela Street.

Traffic staff have advised that any parking that occurs on berms can be enforced already as an infringement, so if a problem arises this should be reported to the parking compliance team to respond accordingly.

4.4       Clyde Road- white parking ticks.

At its meeting on 29 September 2020 following a presentation from representatives of the University of Canterbury Students Association the Board agreed to request staff advice on the installation of parking ticks on the university side of Clyde Road.

Traffic staff have evaluated this request and commented that it is not normal practice for intermediate parking ticks to be provided, unless they are subject to a parking fee, such as in the Central Business District and there is also a view that defined bays can lead to inefficiencies within the overall unmarked space, as some vehicles are either longer or shorter than standard and ticks could lead to unused space.

Staff are, however, aware of the highly intensive parking demands adjacent to the University and the need for efficient use of parking spaces on-street. Consequently they will organise new parking tick markings to delineate specific bays as shown below.

4.5       Restoration of Cashmere Stream

The Government has given Christchurch City Council a grant of almost $1.5 million through its Freshwater Improvement Fund to help fund restoration work on Cashmere Stream (See attachments B and C).

Over recent years approximately 2500 native trees have been planted along the headwaters of the stream by the Cashmere Stream Care Group to help improve the health of the waterway. The Government funding will go towards a three-year project that will entail the Council working with community groups to restore the cultural and ecological health of a 1.8 kilometre stretch of the stream between Sutherlands Road and Dunbars Stream.

Sediment is to be removed from the stream and the banks re-sculpted and planted with native species to improve the ecology of the waterway. A 30-metre wide corridor of planting will be created to shade and protect the stream, enhancing the habitat for the freshwater fish.

The work forms part of a $50 million investment by the Council in stormwater treatment, wetland creation and floodplain management infrastructure in the area surrounding Cashmere Stream.

4.6       Council-owned properties identified for disposal

A new process is now being implemented for deciding the future of Council-owned properties that are no longer being used for the purpose they were originally acquired.

To support that process, at its 10 December 2020 meeting the Council endorsed the following criteria to be used to identify properties for consultation purposes:

a. Is the full property still required for the purpose for which it was originally acquired?

b. Does the property have special cultural, heritage or environmental values that can only              be protected through public ownership?

c.   Is there an immediate identified alternative public use / work / activity in a policy, plan or        strategy?

d.   Are there any strategic, non-service delivery needs that the property meets and that can           only be met through public ownership?

e.    Are there any identified unmet needs, which the Council might normally address, that the        property could be used to solve? And is there a reasonable pathway to funding the unmet                need?

Through its Long Term Plan the Council is making decisions about the future of its properties that are no longer being used for their original purpose.   The Council owns many types of properties of all different shapes and sizes. Owning property comes at a cost, and it’s good financial practice to continually review the portfolio to make sure it’s still fit for purpose.

The Council is reviewing this list at its meeting on 4th March 2021 and will be seeking the community’s views after this through consultation on the Draft 2021–31 Long Term Plan.  This consultation opens in March 2021 for four weeks.

The Board will formally consider this matter once it is approved and inform the Council of local views through its Long Term Plan submission.

4.7       Denton Park - upcoming consultation on proposed lease to Mas Oyama Kyokushin Karate Club

Parks staff have advised that Mas Oyama Kyokushin Karate Club has applied for a ground lease for the former Scouts building on Denton Park (refer Attachment D). The required statutory public consultation on this proposed lease is to commence in February 2021. 

When the public consultation process has been completed, a report on the leasing proposal will be presented to the Board.

4.8       Christchurch Regeneration Acceleration Facility (CRAF) programme

Staff meet with the Board to discuss the Christchurch Regeneration Acceleration Facility (CRAF) programme a few months ago and explained how the available funding is to address condition, safety and accessibility issues in the five areas. Staff have been working on a way to gather local knowledge on condition, safety and accessibility concerns and have developed five interactive maps, where residents can place a pin on a map and leave a comment to show locations of concern.

The maps will be going live in Mid-February for four weeks. There will also be communications around the maps to reach as many people in the community as possible.

A number of drop in sessions have been planned with one for the Riccarton area being scheduled for Tuesday 23 February –drop in 4.30pm to 6.30pm at the Riccarton Service Centre.
