4.1

Path from Kiteroa Place to Shalamar Drive

Bruce Galloway, resident, spoke about a proposal for a path for pedestrians and cyclists through Tarata Reserve from Kiteroa Place to Shalamar Drive to link residential areas of Cashmere with recreational opportunities. Residents would like the Council to construct this path to cater for easy walking and biking access to the Cashmere Valley.

Mr Galloway noted that residents would be happy to assist the Council in the construction of the path, but they do not have the expertise to design the path and lead its construction.

Mr Galloway noted that the Council is supporting residents to plant natives in Tarata Reserve, with the first instalment of plants due to be delivered in May 2022. He asked that the track beapproved and designed prior to this so that the natives are not planted in the same location as a potential future path.

Mr Galloway asked for the Board’s endorsement of the proposal to create a path, and support for funding to be sourced through community sources or the Council.

After questions from members, the Board thanked Mr Galloway for his presentation.

Part B

The Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board agreed to:

1.         Request staff advice on whether there is staff resource to complete a high level design of a path between Kiteroa Place and Shalamar Drive.

2.         Request staff advice on whether there is existing budget to construct a new path between Kiteroa Place and Shalamar Drive and the cost estimate, noting that the community is willing to assist with construction.

Part C

That the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Receive the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board Plan 2020-2022 – Monitoring Report.

2.         Adopt the following new priority for the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board Plan 2020-2022:

Priority: Ensure the provision of fit-for-purpose greenspace in the Spreydon area.

 

Why this matters:

·    The Spreydon area is currently experiencing intensification of housing thus reducing private greenspace

·    Greenspace enhances wellbeing

·    Access to fit-for-purpose greenspace within the Spreydon area will provide space for social connection, recreation and having adventures.  

 

What the board will do:

·    Request advice from staff on whether planning is underway to understand  greenspace needs in the Spreydon area given population growth and housing intensification

·    Work with staff and the community to identify any gaps in the existing and planned network of greenspace in the Spreydon area, including gaps in access to and quality of greenspace

·    Investigate whether existing budgets can address the gaps

·    If required, advocate for additional funding in the Long Term Plan to address the gaps, including funding for land acquisition

·    Advocate for staff resource to investigate which trees on private property are protected under legislation

·    Advocate for the inclusion of this project in key plans, such as the Ōtautahi Christchurch Plan and Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan.

 

We will measure our success by:

·    Staff provide advice on whether planning is underway to understand  greenspace needs in the Spreydon area given population growth and housing intensification

·    The community is involved in identifying any gaps in the existing and planned network of greenspace in the Spreydon area, including gaps in access to and quality of greenspace

·    Any existing budgets to address gaps have been identified

·    Funds are secured in the 2024-2034 Long Term Plan

·    Trees on private property that are protected under legislation are identified

·    The Board advocated for the inclusion of this project in key plans, such as the Ōtautahi Christchurch Plan and Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan.

4.   Advice Provided to the Community Board  

4.1       Customer Service Requests Report – Reports on customer service requests in the Board area from 20 October to 19 November and 1 to 31 December 2021 are attached as Attachment E and Attachment F.

4.2       Graffiti Snapshot – Updates on graffiti in the Board area from October and November 2021 are attached as Attachment G and Attachment H.

4.3       Cyclist Safety on Selwyn Street – At its 1 September 2020 meeting, the Board heard from a resident about cyclist safety, including extending no stopping lines on Selwyn Street to improve safety of cyclists merging with traffic. The Board approved the extension of no stopping lines in late-2021.

4.4       Trees on Dominion Avenue – At its 3 August 2021 meeting, a Board member noted that community members have raised concerns about trees shading properties and dropping large quantities of leaves on Dominion Avenue. The Board asked for advice on whether the trees can be pruned to reduce shading and the frequency of street sweeping. A memo from staff is attached regarding pruning (Attachment I).

Staff provided the following advice regarding street sweeping:

Dominion Avenue is a flat stormwater channel, which defaults to a standard six weekly gutter sweep. It is also on the annual autumn leaf removal and inspection rounds for period 1 April - 31 July, when weekly inspections are undertaken to all streets lined with large trees that are known to drop a lot of leaves. During this inspection period, a leaf removal response is triggered if the leaf covers the kerb, thereby obscuring it from pedestrian view and creating a potential tripping hazard. Staff also respond to public ticket requests to inspect and remove leaves at any time.

Please note that the only public calls for leaf removal this season on Dominion Avenue were all submitted by one residence, who called three times for leaf removal on 23 April 2021, 1 June 2021 and 14 June 2021.

The staff view is that this is a satisfactory regimen as it incorporates an ongoing programmed sweep, a targeted and separately funded seasonal response and a customer focused response via the Call Centre.

4.5       Bin at Beckenham Park – At its 3 August 2021 meeting, the Board heard from the Southern Districts Cricket Club. The Club noted that a rubbish bin was recently moved from the area between the playground and pavilion to the park entrance, and asked that it be moved back to its original location. Staff advised that they met onsite with the Club and discussed the location of the bin. The Club is happy for the bin to remain at the new location until more data is gathered on the bin’s usage. If in future it would be better placed in another location, staff are happy to move it.

4.6       Feeding Ducks – At its 31 August 2021 meeting, a Board member noted that people often feed bread to ducks along the Ōpāwaho Heathcote River, including in Ernle Clarke Reserve and along Eastern Terrace, which is harmful for ducks and pollutes the water. The Board asked that staff investigate signage that discourages people feeding bread to ducks. Staff advised that they developed the following signage, which was installed in Ernle Clark Reserve at locations selected in consultation with the Friends of Ernle Clark.

Ducks

Laundry at Retirement Village – At its 20 October 2021 meeting, the Board heard from residents about discharges from the laundry at the Bupa Cashmere View Retirement Village. They noted that odours near the site have been a longstanding issue. They advised that Bupa had planned to move the laundry to another location in July 2022, but this has been delayed. The Board agreed to write to Environment Canterbury (ECan) to confirm that the laundry would be moved to another location by the end of 2021, what penalties will be incurred if the laundry is not moved and the ongoing monitoring process to assess odours. The Board also asked for staff advice on where the laundry would be relocated to. ECan advised that Bupa relocated the laundry in December 2021. 

4.7       Footpath in Sydenham Cemetery – At its 20 October 2021 meeting, the Board received an information report from staff regarding options to reduce flooding on a footpath in Sydenham Cemetery. The Board noted that there was ongoing community concern about the inability to access graves when the footpath was flooded, and asked that staff provide advice by the end of the year on when the footpath would be raised, elevated and asphalted. Staff advised that the budget was approved for this project, and work will be carried out in early-2022.

4.8       Speed Limit on Hunter Terrace – At its 2 November 2021 meeting, a Board member noted that the speed limit is 50 kilometres per hour on the section of Hunter Terrace directly south of South Library. The Board member noted that many pedestrians use the area when visiting the library. A new pump track and half basketball court are planned adjacent to Hunter Terrace and the Opawa Farmers Market is temporarily relocating to the area, which will increase pedestrian traffic. The Board asked for staff advice on options to lower the speed limit. Staff provided the following advice:

The Council will consult on a lower speed limit for this section of Hunter Terrace in early-2022. There was discussion about making this a shared space, but the difficulty with this is that shared spaces are generally only successful when there is no real definition between what would be expected to be a traffic area versus a footpath.  As this area looks like a road, it is likely that it will continue to operate this way (i.e. drivers will consider that they have the right of way, rather than sharing the space with pedestrians). There would therefore need to be improvements to the road environment and also a more consistent presence of pedestrians in this location throughout the day for this to be successful and supported. Further changes can be considered as the park development progresses, if appropriate. Pedestrian warning signs will be installed near the two entry points to this section of Hunter Terrace to advise motorists of the likely presence of pedestrians in this area. Staff understand the Opawa Farmers Market organisers have operational measures in place to manage pedestrian movements within the site, such as providing pedestrian access via the eastern gate, separated from the access that vendors will be using.

4.9       Sanatorium Hut for Tuberculosis – At its 30 November 2021 meeting, the Board heard from residents about a hut in Coronation Reserve in Huntsbury previously used for the treatment of tuberculosis. The residents asked the Board for a letter of support for their application to Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga to add the hut to the New Zealand Heritage List. The Board asked for staff advice on whether the Council supports the hut being added to the Heritage List, and that staff investigate repairing the existing interpretation panel and installing directional signage for the hut. Staff provided the following advice regarding the Heritage List:

The Council’s Heritage team are fully in support of the application to have the hut listed with Heritage New Zealand (HNZ). Listing a heritage item with HNZ is primarily an awareness tool. It does not confer protection on the item. Nor does it confer any responsibility upon the owner to maintain the item. The Resource Management Act however requires Councils to have regard to any relevant entry on the Heritage List. In effect this obliges the Council to consider scheduling that item as a heritage item on the District Plan. In the case of the hut, it is already on the short list for consideration for scheduling. Having HNZ list the item in advance is beneficial as they will undertake the necessary research and writing that the Council would otherwise have to complete. However, if HNZ considered that the hut is of insufficient national merit to be listed, this would not prevent the Council making its own separate determination in the District Plan on its significance to Christchurch.

The addition of heritage items to the District Plan schedule constitutes a plan change, which typically only happens when the District Plan needs a general update.  An omnibus plan change is currently underway (of which heritage is only a small part). The Council is making a number of additions to the schedule as a consequence, but unfortunately the hut has missed this plan change. There is unlikely to be another plan change involving heritage for at least a few years.

Staff provided the following advice regarding signage:

The hut’s interpretation panel requires a redesign and reprint of a replacement panel, which would sit on top of the current frame (thus covering the rusting) and tidying up of the legs. The existing content is fine. There may be budget this financial year to undertake this work, but if not then this will be completed next financial year (FY2022-23). The entrance signage will be updated at the same time.

4.10    Unmarked Graves – Staff provided the attached memo about unmarked graves to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board in response to a request about the number of unmarked graves in Christchurch City cemeteries for former residents of mental institutions (Attachment J). Staff advised that the majority of unmarked graves from Sunnyside are interred at Sydenham Cemetery. The memo is provided to this Board for information as Sydenham Cemetery in is in the Board area.
