4.   Public Forum Te Huinga Whānui

Part B

4.1

Pedestrian links from Addington to Central City

Chris Freear, local resident, gave a presentation to the Board regarding improvement of pedestrian links from Addington to the Central City.

Mr Freear noted that the population of Addington is likely to increase as single level dwellings in the area are replaced with multi-level dwellings.  He would like to see the increased numbers of residents choosing active travel to the city and considers that this could be encouraged by provision of a safe and visually interesting route.

Mr Freear presented photographs of the current pedestrian links and suggested possible improvements including planter boxes and seating, art on walls and pavements, strip gardens etc. together with traffic calming measures and improved pedestrian crossing facilities that could be installed as part of a cohesive plan to create a visually interesting route to encourage residents to utilise footpaths as their first form of transport.

Board members noted that the Addington area is currently vehicle-friendly and that Selwyn Street is a wide road that may be difficult for pedestrians to cross.

In response to a question from a member about the possibility of local community groups participating in enhancement of the route, Mr Freear advised that he had contacted Gap Filler and was willing to approach local groups Manuka Cottage and the Timebank.

A member advised Mr Feerar that the Board do have some funding available to assist with small community projects.

It was suggested that the proposal could be discussed with the Council’s Innovating Streets team.

It was further suggested that Hagley College could be approached to see whether it might like to be involved in art projects.

Following questions from members, the Chairperson thanked Mr Freear for his presentation.

5.   Deputations by Appointment Ngā Huinga Whakaritenga

Part B

5.1      Item 11 - Woodham Park - Former Caretakers Residence and Grounds

Mr Mark Gerrard, local resident, spoke against the proposal to have the former caretaker’s residence at Woodham Park demolished.

Mr Gerrard advised that he is concerned that contrary to good civic practice there has not been any public engagement with residents or groups about the possible future use of the former caretaker’s residence.

Mr Gerrard said he is concerned that the Council’s Heritage Strategy "Our Heritage Our Taonga" is not mentioned in the officer’s report and that aside from the Botanical Gardens no Council former caretaker residences have been scheduled as heritage buildings on the City’s District Plan.  He considers that at least some of the park caretakers residences should be protected before they all vanish.  Mr Gerrard would like to see the Council’s Heritage team involved in all reports where there may be potential heritage aspects.

Mr Gerrard said he is perturbed that the former residence was allowed to sit unused and deteriorate since 2009 with no active use sought or decision about its future made.

Mr Gerrard requested that the Board decline to demolish the residence and urged it to instead seek community engagement and input with the aim of making the former caretaker’s residence available for community use.

Mr Gerrard further requested that the Board seek a heritage assessment from the Council’s Heritage Team as to the former caretaker’s residence’s  suitability for scheduling on the District Plan.

In response to a question from a member, Mr Gerrard said he thought that the residence could be adaptively re-used sympathetically within its context, a heritage building in a de-facto heritage park. He said he considers that if engaged the community could come up with ideas for possible use.  He indicated that it would be useful for the Council to proactively engage with community at an early stage.

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

The presentation tabled at the deputation is attached below.

Item 11 of these minutes refers.

11. Woodham Park - Former Caretaker's Residence and Grounds

 

Board Comment

The Council’s Asset Engineer, Parks Heritage and Buildings spoke to the Board and answered questions from the Board.

It was noted that the former caretaker’s residence has been vacant since 2009, as Council no longer has caretakers living on parks.  It was proposed that the building be removed at that time and the site incorporated into the park.  While landscape plans were prepared for this they were not implemented.  The building sustained damage during the earthquake sequence that occurred in 2010-11.  Owing to recent issues with homeless people, vandalism etc. a plan to demolish the building has been developed.

Staff advised in response to a question that at the time of the earthquakes the residence was insured for $173,608 but that as the building was proposed to be demolished it was not included on the Council’s priority list for repair.

It was clarified that the building is not included in the District Plan as a heritage building although there is connection, through the former homestead, to Woodham Park which is a potential District Plan heritage item.

It was advised that in terms of the Reserves Act 1977 the use of the former residence would be required to relate to Park activity.

Jake McLellan moved that the Board lay the report on the table and request staff to investigate the heritage values of the former caretaker’s house on Woodham Park and undertake engagement on the viability of community use of the building.

The motion was seconded by Darrell Latham and on being put to the vote was declared carried.

 

Officer Recommendation / Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waikura Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board recommend to Council to:

1.         Approve the removal of the former caretaker’s house, garage and shed from Woodham Park and incorporate the area into the park with appropriate landscape treatment and enhancement.

 

Community Board Decided LCHB/2022/00019

Part B

That the Waikura Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.       Lay the report Woodham Park - Former Caretaker's Residence and Grounds on the table and request staff:

6.   Presentation of Petitions Ngā Pākikitanga

Part B

6.1

At the Board’s 16 February 2022 meeting, Simone Pearson, resident of Dawson Street, tabled two petitions during her deputation to the Board on Dawson Street (Clause 5.1 of 16 February 2022 minutes refers).

 

1.    The first petition supported retaining the current asphalt surface of Dawson Street.

 

The prayer of the petition reads:

We support retaining the current asphalt surface of Dawson Street. The planned resurfacing in chipseal stones poses a risk to; the health, safety and wellbeing of pedestrians and; of damage to properties and vehicles. (20 signatories)

2.    The second petition supported the change in designation from Dawson Street to Dawson Lane.

 

The prayer of the petition reads:

We the properties owners and residents support the change in designation from Dawson Street to Dawson Lane. (22 signatories)

At that time, the petition did not meet the provision of Standing Orders Clause 13 – Petitions and was not admissible. Clause 13 requires the petition to be received by the Chief Executive at least five working days before the date of the meeting at which it will be presented. That was not the case in that instance.

The petitions were forwarded to the Chief Executive Officer for consideration of acceptance and that acceptance was granted on 24 February 2022.

Sunita Gautam moved that the petitions be received. The motion was seconded by Sara Templeton and on being put to the vote was declared carried.

7.   Briefings

Councillors Lan Pham and Vicky Southworth from the Canterbury Regional Council (Environment Canterbury) briefed the Board on the Environment Canterbury 2022/23 draft Annual Plan that is currently out for consultation and highlighted aspects of the plan.  There are three options being consulted on in terms of passenger transport fares:

·         The preferred option is a proposal for free-fares for those under 25 of age, tertiary students, Community Service and mobility card holders for a duration of two years;

·         A second option is a two dollar flat fare;

·         A third option is the status quo, with a reduction in fares for tertiary students.

The different options will have different costs for households but will also provide savings.

Funding options for flood recovery are also being consulted on, in particular the costs of repair/reinstatement of damaged flood protection work. These costs are usually met by targeted rates, but in light of the extent of recent flooding funding through general rates across the region is being looked at.

Ideas are also being sought on the inclusion of a climate levy for ecologic protection measures in a future long term plan.

Councillors Pham and Southworth discussed the proposals with board members and invited them to contact them with any questions.

The Chairperson thanked Councillors Pham and Southworth for their presentation.

9.   Hagley Park North - Tennis Court New Floodlights

 

The report was withdrawn.

 

 

10. Slow Speed Neighbourhoods - Scarborough Hill

 

Board Comment

The Council’s Senior Transportation Engineer,  Engagement Advisor, and Charlotte French, consultant, spoke to the report.  It was clarified that the proposal for a Slow Speed Neighbourhood on Scarborough Hill is part of the Road to Zero programme national strategy for the reduction of death and serious injury on roads.

Staff advised that consultation on the proposal occurred from 5 November to 5 December 2021, and 37 submissions were received.

A member queried whether the proposed 40 kilometre per hour speed limit is a safe and appropriate speed for Flowers Track, given that it is a track and not a road, and for Whitewash Head Road that can only safely accommodate a single vehicle at a time.

Staff responded that the limit of 40 kilometre per hour is not a target to drive to, but rather a guide as to maximum speed and advised that although Flowers Track is a track it may be legal road and so was included in the Slow Speed Neighbourhood zone. The speed limit for Whitewash Head Road is currently 50 kilometres per hour and it does not fall within guidelines to have a speed limit less than 40 kilometres per hour.

Members discussed their support for the recommendations, but indicated that they would like to see more information provided on the status of Flowers Track and on whether 40 kilometres per hour is a safe and appropriate speed for Whitewash Head Road. The Board discussed the recommendations from the report.

Tim Lindley moved the staff recommendation with a request that staff provide information to the Board and the Council on the status of Flowers Track and on whether 40 kilometres per hour is a safe and appropriate speed for Whitewash Head Road. The motion was seconded by Sara Templeton and on being put to the vote was declared carried.
