Introduction / Te Whakatkinga

3.1       Road naming requests have been submitted by Harrison Grierson Consultants on behalf of the developer, for the subdivision of 8 Blakes Road (RMA/2020/2932).  A preferred name and alternative names, have been put forward by the developer for each road.

3.2       The recommended road names have been checked against existing road names in Christchurch and bordering districts, for duplication, alternative spelling, or other similarities in spelling or pronunciation to avoid the potential for confusion. The proposed names are considered sufficiently different to existing road names.

3.3       The recommended road names have been checked against the Council’s Roads and Right-of-Way Naming Policy dated 2 November 1993 and are considered to be consistent with this policy except as outlined below.

3.4       The recommended road names have also been checked against the Australia and New Zealand Standard AS/NZA 4819:2011 Rural and Urban Addressing. The names are considered to be consistent with the Standard unless otherwise stated below.

3.5       Under the Roads and Right-of-Way Naming Policy, the names considered must be requested by the developer. There is not an ability to consider alternative names without first checking whether there are any duplications or similarities with other road and right-of-way names.

3.6       Consultation has been undertaken with Land Information New Zealand who have raised no concerns with the proposed road names.

3.7       The names requested have been accompanied by an explanation of the background to the names, which is summarised below, along with correspondence with the applicant.

Assessment of Significance and Engagement / Te Aromatawai Whakahirahira

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

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

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

Proposed Names

3.11    The proposed roads are shown in Attachment A.

3.12    The proposed options are related to the historic use of the site as a meat processing plant and Spring Grove farm.

3.13    Road 2 - Preferred name: Dallimore Drive

3.14    Paul Dallimore has been involved with the arts for more than 25 years and received the Insignia of a Companion of the Queen's Service Order for services to the arts in 2010. He is a founding trustee of the Creative Arts Trust and is a trustee of the Christchurch Art Gallery Trust. Mr Dallimore has also been actively involved in the promoting of local historic buildings and architecture.

3.15    Road 4 - Preferred name: Texel Crescent

3.16    Texel is a breed of sheep originally from the island of Texel in the Netherlands. They were selected from Denmark and Finland to suit New Zealand and Australian conditions and were introduced into New Zealand in 1988. They are a popular lean meat sheep.

3.17    Road 10 - Preferred name: Sarah Nicholls Street

3.18    Sarah Sheldon Nicholls was the wife of William Nicholls and they owned the Spring Grove homestead from 1896. Sarah died in 1911 aged 56 in a gig accident on the property. In memory of his late wife, William donated eight acres of his property to Belfast and called it Sheldon Park.

3.19    Road 6A - Preferred name: Sedge Street

3.20    Sedge is a type of grass-like plant that is commonly found in wetlands. New Zealand has 170 native and 43 introduced sedge species.

3.22    Herdwick Crescent – Herdwick is a breed of sheep native to the Lake District in North West England. They are dual-purpose breed, producing strongly flavoured lamb and mutton and a coarse, grey wool.

3.23    Arapawa Road – Arapawa is a breed of sheep found primarily on Arapaoa Island in the Marlborough Sounds. They are likely descendants of merino strains from Australia and have probably been isolated since they were introduced in 1867. This breed is raised primarily for wool.

Notes

3.25    Under the Road Naming Policy (clause 13), personal names are to be discouraged unless the name submitted has an historical connection with the property being subdivided, or that of a well-known local identity or prominent Cantabrian, or New Zealander. We note that Mr Dallimore is also associated with the subdivision of this site, however he is also considered to be a prominent Cantabrian given his QSO and services including in the arts to Christchurch and the wider South Island.

3.26    A wider masterplan of the subdivision (Attachment A, page 2) is provided to illustrate the location of the wider road network including the design of the proposed ‘crescent’ road type and its relationship to Road 10.

8.     Bus Priority Lanes Trial - Cranford Street (Innes Road to Berwick Street)

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

21/73237

Report of / Te Pou Matua:

Georgina Sandilands, Transport Project Manager, Georgina.Sandilands@ccc.govt.nz

General Manager / Pouwhakarae:

Carolyn Gallagher – Acting General Manager City Services, Carolyn.Gallagher@ccc.govt.nz

 

 

1.   Purpose of the Report / Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board to approve the implementation of the special purpose bus priority lanes trial following resolutions made by the Council on 26 November 2020 - CNCL/2020/00148 (set out in Attachment A of the report).

1.2       The decision in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.  The level of significance was determined by the relatively small number of residents likely to be impacted by the implementation of the bus priority lanes trial.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waipapa/Papanui- Innes Community Board:

1.         Approve the layout and design of the special purpose bus priority lanes and any changes to traffic controls required to implement the lanes, as set out in Attachment B of this report.

2.         Approve the changes to the parking controls for the duration of the trial, as set out in Attachment C of this report, which includes the temporary removal of 22 carparks, so that the trial can commence.

3.         Resolve that the operational hours for the Cranford Street bus priority lanes are 7am to 9am for the city-bound journey and 4pm to 6pm for the north-bound journey.

4.         Resolve that this trial will commence on 26 February 2021 for a three month period, in accordance with Council resolution CNCL/2020/00148.

 

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

3.1       Council has resolved (CNCL/2020/00148, refer to Attachment A) that following the opening of the Christchurch Northern Corridor, special purpose bus priority lanes are to be trialled on Cranford Street for three months commencing in February 2021. It is to operate city-bound during the morning peak and north-bound during the afternoon peak between Innes Road and Berwick Street. 

3.2       The current design of the bus priority lanes is recommended by staff and accepted by the Independent Traffic Expert, Dr Shane Turner of Abley. It satisfies the current NZTA bus lane standards and does not reduce the capacity for vehicles at the intersections as required by the Independent Traffic Expert.

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered / Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       No alternative options to bus priority lanes were considered in this report as the Council resolution CNCL/2020/00148 specifically a trial of special purpose bus priority for this portion of works.

4.2       Bus priority lanes for the full length between Innes Road and Berwick Street were assessed. The north-bound bus priority lane is not recommended for installation between Berwick Street and Westminster Street as the length of bus priority lane between the tapers is considered to be insufficient to improve the travel times. This does not apply to the city-bound section.

5.   Detail / Te Whakamahuki

BACKGROUND/CONTEXT

5.1       Resolutions made by the Council at the Extraordinary Council meeting on 26 November 2020 (refer to Attachment A), resolved that there be a trial of special purpose bus priority lanes commencing in February 2021 for three months on Cranford Street between Innes Road and Berwick Street. It delegated authority to the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board to approve the design and operating hours for the installation of this trial.

5.2       Staff have since completed the design for the bus lanes and have commenced engagement with local residents and businesses to inform them of the upcoming trial.

5.3       The Cranford Street (Innes-Berwick) bus priority lanes trial spans both directions between Innes Road and Berwick Street (refer to Attachment B):

5.3.1   The city-bound bus priority lane begins at #228 Cranford Street and ends at #106 Cranford Street, a total of 305 metres, with a 70m break over the Westminster Street intersection.

The north-bound bus priority lane begins at #169 Cranford Street (to the north of the Westminster Street intersection) and ends at #227 Cranford Street, a total of 165 metres.

5.3.2   Staff recommend that the operational hours for the Cranford Street bus priority lanes be 7am to 9am for the city-bound journey and 4pm to 6pm for the north-bound journey. This is consistent with existing Christchurch City Council bus priority lanes.

5.3.3   The current car parking on Cranford Street between Innes Road and Berwick Street is allocated in blocks rather than individual parks, as shown in Attachment C. The majority of parking is currently unrestricted along Cranford Street.

5.3.4   The Westminster Street intersection parking is currently time restricted and services the local businesses, the parks will remain time restricted as part of this trial and the parking restrictions during bus lane operational hours will apply.

5.3.5   During bus lane operation times all parking in the city-bound bus lane will be prohibited between 7am and 9am and all parking in the north-bound bus lane will be prohibited between 4pm and 6pm.


 

5.3.6   Car parking also needs to be removed for the duration of the trial to enable the installation of the bus lanes. The removal of some car parks is needed to reduce potential conflict between all road users. Details for the removed parks follow and Attachment C presents the modifications to car parking.

·     Between Dee Street and Westminster Street intersections:

·    Three car parks will be removed from the city-bound bus lane.

·    Six car parks will be removed on the north-bound bus lane.

·     Between Westminster Street and Berwick Street intersections:

·    Four car parks will be removed from the city-bound bus lane, two car parks will remain outside the dairy and hairdresser.

·    Nine car parks will be removed from the north-bound bus lane.

Information will be provided to the community regarding the removal of these carparks and changes to the parking restrictions.

5.4       The bus lane has been designed in accordance with NZTA standards and guidelines. Although it is a trial we are required to install all relevant signage. Green lane marking for the bus lane trial will not be completed with epoxy paint as this is difficult to remove should the bus lanes not become permanent.

5.5       A road safety audit of the design has been completed by Beca Ltd and all issues have been resolved.

5.6       The process for implementation, evaluation and reporting for the bus priority lane trial follows:

5.6.1   The bus priority lane trial is to be implemented in February 2021, and the trial evaluation period will be three months. (End of February 2021 to the end of May 2021).

5.6.2   Traffic monitoring information (counts, speeds and behaviour) of the surrounding local roads and Cranford Street will be collected for the duration of the trial period. (End of February 2021 to the end of May 2021).

·     The traffic monitoring is part of a wider monitoring programme being undertaken to meet the requirements of the Downstream Effects Management Plan.

5.6.3   Bus journey time data will be collected to evaluate the effectiveness of the bus priority lane on journey times in both directions between Innes Road and Berwick Street. Data will also be sought from the ECAN on bus patronage during the trial period.

5.6.4   Feedback will be sought from the local and wider community during the trial period.  Feedback will be via online submissions and face to face meetings with local business owners.

5.6.5   Post-trial analysis and evaluation of the bus lane will be carried out using the information collected during the trial period. This will commence at the end of May 2021, with a duration of approximately two months.

·     Success factors for the bus priority lanes are difficult to measure, it is currently expected that the journey times for local bus routes will not be significantly improved, and rather the direct bus routes from Rangiora and Kaiapoi will see most benefit.

5.6.6   A report and proposed resolutions will be submitted to the Community Board and Council for consideration. The current target is the 12 August 2021 Council meeting.

5.7       The total duration the bus lanes will be operational prior to resolution by Council will be in excess of the three month trial period. This is necessary to allow sufficient time for the trial to end and then subsequent analysis and reporting to be completed. The total time for the bus lane to be operational is expected to be five months. The Community Board has the delegation to approve the bus lane trial for the time period of three months. Staff will present to the Urban Development and Transport Committee to extend the trial period for the additional two months to allow for those operational requirements.

5.8       The decision affects the following wards/Community Board areas:

·   Innes Ward and Papanui/Innes Community Board area.

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

Strategic Alignment /Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

6.1       The proposed recommendation is consistent with the Christchurch Transport Strategic Plan and is also consistent with the Council’s Strategic Priorities as it supports enabling active and connected communities to own their future.

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

6.2.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.3 Improve the reliability of passenger transport journey time. - >= 86% Customers have choices - More people are choosing to travel by bus.

Policy Consistency / Te Whai Kaupapa here

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

Impact on Mana Whenua / Ngā Whai Take Mana Whenua

6.4       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 / Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Āhuarangi

6.5       The implementation of a bus priority lane supports Climate Change initiatives by making public transport more desirable and reducing vehicle emissions.

Accessibility Considerations / Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Hunga Hauā

6.6       The bus priority lane trial will have limited impact on accessibility.

7.   Resource Implications / Ngā Hīraunga Rauemi

Capex/Opex / Ngā Utu Whakahaere

7.1       Cost to implement trial – The cost estimate to install the bus lanes trial is $20,000. These costs are included in the Down Stream Works Construction Package 2 contract with Fulton Hogan. Should the trial become permanent an additional cost of $52,000 is expected for repainting of the bus lanes with permanent (epoxy or polyurethane) skid resistant surfacing.

7.2       Enforcement costs during trial period – Enforcement of parking and driving in the bus priority lanes when they are operational is required during the trial period. The following costs have been estimated for the bus lanes trial:

·   Tow truck vehicle removal costs under the existing Council contracts: $140/hr.

·   Hourly Staff rate for monitoring and enforcing driving within the bus lanes: $90/hr.

·   Hourly Staff rate for enforcement of other parking restrictions: $65/hr.

7.3       Maintenance/Ongoing costs - The recommendation does add additional maintenance and ongoing costs. The maintenance costs have not been estimated for the duration of the trial. Maintenance costs will be estimated and reported for any recommended permanent solutions.

7.4       Funding Source - The project is currently funded through the Council’s Long Term Plan, project number #17088.

Other / He mea anō

7.5       The Council is currently carrying out a monitoring programme of traffic levels in the study area to understand traffic changes following the opening of the Christchurch Northern Corridor. This monitoring programme is consistent with the recommendation of the Independent Traffic Expert and the Downstream Effects Management Plan. This work will continue as part of the preferred option and budget is currently allocated within the draft 2021-31 Long Term Plan.

8.   Legal Implications / Ngā Hīraunga ā-Ture

8.1       This report has been reviewed and approved by the legal services unit.

Statutory power to undertake proposals in the report / Te Manatū Whakahaere Kaupapa

8.2       The Council resolved on 26 November 2020 to trial a bus priority lane on Cranford Street for a three month period.  Bus priority lanes are a form of special vehicle lane authorised by Council resolution under clause 18 of the Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017.

8.3       By resolution on the same date, the Council delegated to the Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board the authority to approve the design and operating hours for installation of this bus priority lane.

Other Legal Implications / Ētahi atu Hīraunga-ā-Ture

8.4       The Waipapa/Papanui-Innes Community Board does not have the delegation to prescribe the bus priority lane trial for longer than a three month period.

8.5       Unless the Council makes a further delegation only the Council has the authority to prescribe the permanent installation of a special purpose bus priority lane after the trial.

8.6       The Council is obligated under the conditions of the resource consent for the Christchurch Northern Corridor to follow the recommendations of the Independent Traffic Engineer in the Downstream Effects Management Plan (DEMP). The DEMP did not initially recommend this bus priority lane trial but the Independent Traffic Expert has reviewed and approved this trial.

8.7       In terms of the enforcement of the bus priority lane, the Council’s parking compliance officers have the powers of parking wardens under the Land Transport Act 1998.  Parking wardens are authorised to enforce the provisions of special vehicle lane offences, and in particular infringement offences.  Special vehicle lane infringement offences include parking a vehicle in a special vehicle lane ($60 infringement fee), and the unauthorised use of a special vehicle lane ($150 infringement fee).

9.   Risk Management Implications / Ngā Hīraunga Tūraru

9.1       There is a risk that the implementation of a bus priority lane trial will impact the flow of traffic on Cranford Street and the local streets. Traffic monitoring will be continuous during the trial and will inform Staff if rat-running is becoming an issue.

9.2       There is a risk that an increase of rat-running on local streets may be incorrectly attributed to the bus priority lanes.

9.3       At the end of the bus priority lanes trial and reporting period the views of the Council and the Independent Traffic Expert may differ. This may be in regard to outcomes of the trial, staff recommendations, or, permanent solution for Cranford Street.

3.3       Participation in and Contribution to Decision Making

3.3.1   Report back on other Activities contributing to Community Board Plan [for items not included in the above table but are included in Community Board Plan]

·     Summer with your Neighbours

The Larne Place get together in mid-December was very successful “a lovely afternoon and evening”. The organiser sent in the accompanying photo.

·     Belfast Skate Jam

Staff attended a very successful Belfast Skate Jam held at Sheldon Park on Friday 12 February from 4-7pm.

Organised by Belfast Community Network and the Papanui-Innes Recreation Advisor, and featuring the Cheap Skates team, the event attracted over 100 skaters of varying abilities who thoroughly enjoyed the day.

The event attracted over 200 people including families who supported the skaters, enjoyed and took advantage of the free sausage sizzle, and made use of the Belfast pool and a Bouncy castle while relaxing in the park.

The Cheap Skates team provided instruction and coaching for beginner skaters and competitions were held for under 13’s and over 13’s. Families and friends stayed until the end of the event, supporting the skaters and encouraging them in their competition runs.

This successful event fosters a community recreation approach targeting grass roots participation and skill development. The event delivers quality recreation experiences for the children and youth of the Waipapa/Papanui Innes Ward.


 

 

3.3.2   Council Engagement and Consultation.

·     Wheels to Wings – Papanui ki Waiwhetū Major Cycleway

(closes 22 February 2021)

The Council are seeking the public’s views on plans for improved cycling facilities as part of the Wheels to Wings – Papanui ki Waiwhetū Major Cycleway

·     Significant Indigenous Vegetation in the Coastal Environment

(closes 23 February 2021)

The Council is calling for feedback on proposed changes to the District Plan policies and rules around the type and size of native trees and plants (indigenous vegetation) that can be cleared within areas of existing pasture on coastal farmland.

·     Proposed Amendments to the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan to manage noise from the Canterbury Multi-Use Arena

(closes 22 February 2021)

The Council are proposing a range of noise-related conditions and rules for the Arena, including noise limits, finishing times, numbers of concerts a year and requirements for noise insulation. We believe these proposed measures represent an appropriate balance that will enable the Arena to achieve economic and social benefits for the city, while also managing and reducing noise for neighbours.

·     The draft Central City Parking Policy

(closes 22 February 2021)

The Council are reviewing how we manage parking in the central city, in particular on-street parking. Our proposed policy will help us make decisions about how we use space and provide safer and more people-friendly streets.

Information sessions:

Wednesday 10 February 2021– any time between 11.30am-1pm

Te Hononga Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street, 

Function Room

Wednesday 17 February 2021 – any time between 5pm -6.30pm

Te Hononga Civic Offices, 53 Hereford Street, 

Function Room.

3.3.3   Submissions Committee

·     Significant Council consultation processes are anticipated to open in March, including for the Long Term Plan, Climate Change Strategy and Representation Review. Officers recommend scheduling a meeting of the Submissions Committee on 17 March to consider making submissions.

·     Officers further recommend that the Board considers delegating authority to the Community Board Chairperson and Governance Manager to schedule future meetings of the Submissions Committee. This would allow for a more efficient process for scheduling meetings without needing to prepare a report to the Community Board each time a Submissions Committee meeting needs to be scheduled. It will also allow for a more responsive process so that a meeting can be scheduled as soon as the timeframes for the submission period become known, rather than waiting for the next Community Board meeting before a date can be scheduled. The Board will still be consulted to determine which consultations they wish to lodge a submission on.

3.4       Governance Advice

3.4.1   High Density Housing Development Westminster and Malvern Streets, St Albans

At its meeting on 18 December 2020 the Board received a letter from St Albans residents regarding the high density housing development taking place in Westminster and Malvern Streets. The Board was advised that community boards are precluded from involvement in the Resource Management Act processes by legislation and therefore have no influence on the outcomes of Hearing Panels. The Chairperson also advised the Board that the Resource Management Act processes are currently under review.

The Board decided to raise the matter in the Board’s report to Council in January 2021, write a letter to the Commissioners enclosing the correspondence and forward the correspondence to the Regulatory Performance Committee.

The local residents followed up by presenting a petition to the Board at its meeting on 29 January 2021, requesting that the Council implement a number of checks and balances for the resource management consent process and look at education for the community regarding their rights under the Resource Management Act.

The Board received the petition and referred it to the Regulatory Performance Committee in support of the correspondence previously forwarded in December. The Regulatory Performance Committee wrote a letter back to the Board in response, this is attached to this report as Attachment B.

The Board also requested a briefing on the whole resource consent process including the urban design panel and their involvement in the process.

3.4.2   New Zealand Community Board Conference 2021

The next New Zealand Community Board Conference will be held at the Heartland Hotel Croydon in Gore from Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 April. The conference theme is Interconnected Communities.

Governance staff have estimated the cost to attend, including flights, rental car/shuttle, registration fee and accommodation, to be approximately $1800 per person. As there are limited training budget funds available for member attendance at this conference, members may choose to attend on a self-funded basis.

4.   Advice Provided to the Community Board

4.1       Information sent to the Board:

·   CCC: Road Works in Edgeware (circulated 21 January 2021)
