5.   Greater Christchurch Strategic Transport Planning and Investment

 

Committee Comment

Katherine Trought and Jesse Burgess sought approval from the Committee for staff to develop a Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Program.  They noted:

·    The Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan will set the strategic direction for urban growth and form in Christchurch, including identifying key strategic transport outcomes and components to support he urban form.

·    A significant amount of public transport planning and investment has occurred in Christchurch over the previous two decades.

·    Developing a Greater Christchurch Transport and Investment Plan alongside the Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan addresses central government’s preference for a “one plan” approach and follows the Auckland transport model, which has been accepted by Central Government and recommended by Waka Kotahi transport staff to follow.

 

The Committee:

·    Emphasised the importance of enhanced travel demand management being incorporated into the transport plan.

·    Identified that data derived from monitoring travel patterns is important to build an evidence base and understand commuter behaviour.

·    Supported multi-disciplinary teams working on the transport plan, including a mixed group of professionals, to inform planning and strategy, including enhance travel demand management. 

 

Staff Recommendations

That the Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee:

a.      Note the ongoing work to develop the Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan, which will set the strategic direction for future growth in Greater Christchurch, and the key strategic transport outcomes and components required to support the preferred urban form.

b.      Note the opportunity for a single Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme to be developed concurrently with the Spatial Plan to clearly articulate a ‘one plan’ approach and to give effect to the strategic direction for transport in the Spatial Plan.

c.      Note that a significant amount of transport planning and investment has already occurred in Greater Christchurch during the past two decades, and that several drivers are accelerating the need for further transport planning and investment.

d.     Agree that staff develop a Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme, and that the scope for this piece of work is reported back to the GCP Committee.

 

Committee Resolved GCPC/2022/00005

That the Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee:

b.      Note the opportunity for a single Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme to be developed concurrently with the Spatial Plan to clearly articulate a ‘one plan’ approach and to give effect to the strategic direction for transport in the Spatial Plan.

c.      Note that a significant amount of transport planning and investment has already occurred in Greater Christchurch during the past two decades, and that several drivers are accelerating the need for further transport planning and investment.

d.      Note the importance of shifting to a lower emissions transport system.

   e.      Agree that staff, as a priority, develop a Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme, including enhanced travel demand management and that the scope for this piece of work is reported back to the GCP Committee.

5.     Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

22/420021

Report of / Te Pou Matua:

Chief Executives Advisory Group

 

1.   Purpose of Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report is to set out the scope for development of a Greater Christchurch Transport Plan (GCTP) and Transport Investment Programme (GCTIP), including an outline of tasks and an indicative timetable. 

2.   Chief Executives’ Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee:

a.     Notes the scope for the Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Transport Investment Programme, including the outline of tasks and indicative timetable for this work stream.  

3.   Context/Background Te Horopaki

3.1       The concept of a GCTP and GCTIP was discussed by the Greater Christchurch Partnership (GCP) Committee at its meeting on 11 March 2022.  The GCP Committee supported the development of the Plan and Investment Programme, and placed particular emphasis on the need for this work to be completed as a priority, and for it to include enhanced travel demand management (TDM).    

3.2       The GCP Committee resolved as follows (GCPC/2022/00005):

a.         Note the ongoing work to develop the Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan, which will set the strategic direction for future growth in Greater Christchurch, and the key strategic transport outcomes and components required to support the preferred urban form.

b.         Note the opportunity for a single Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme to be developed concurrently with the Spatial Plan to clearly articulate a ‘one plan’ approach and to give effect to the strategic direction for transport in the Spatial Plan.

c.         Note that a significant amount of transport planning and investment has already occurred in Greater Christchurch during the past two decades, and that several drivers are accelerating the need for further transport planning and investment.

d.         Note the importance of shifting to a lower emissions transport system.

e.         Agree that staff, as a priority, develop a Greater Christchurch Transport Plan and Investment Programme, including enhanced travel demand management, and that the scope for this piece of work is reported back to the GCP Committee.

3.3       A scope for the GCTP and GCTIP has since been developed by the Transport Managers Group (TMG), and endorsed by the Senior Managers/Senior Officials Group (SMG/SOG) and the Chief Executives Advisory Group (CEAG).   The scope has taken the following considerations into account:

·        There is a need to keep the GCTP at a relatively high level, at least in its initial stage.  This will allow completion of an initial plan by September 2022, ahead of the local elections, and in time to inform upcoming budget rounds.

·        There is merit in preparing the GCTP in two stages, with Stage 1 focussing on consolidating existing plans and programmes, with Stage 2 providing further detail on the transport interventions needed to give effect to the strategic direction for transport in the Spatial Plan.

·        The GCTP should build off the work already undertaken by the Christchurch City Council on the Christchurch Transport Plan but provide sufficient flexibility to cover the approach being taken in the districts as well.

3.4       The resulting scope for the GCTP and GCTIP is summarised below.

4.   Purpose

4.1       The primary purpose of the GCTP is to provide a single plan for transport in the Greater Christchurch sub-region, which provides a consistent policy framework for transport investment that aligns with central government and GCP objectives.  It also provides the ability to set out the transport policies and investments that are needed to give effect to the Greater Christchurch Spatial Plan.

4.2       The purpose of the GCTIP is to provide a consistent and integrated investment and action programme for the short term (1-3 years), medium term (4-10 years) and longer term (10+ years) that demonstrates how transport investments and interventions in Greater Christchurch will deliver on central government and GCP objectives.  This will include a description of key projects and an indication of costs, timing and organisational responsibility.

4.3       Attachment 1 illustrates the relationships between the GCTP, GCTIP and other processes.

5.   Staging

5.1       In view of the need to develop an initial plan by September, it is proposed to develop the GCTP in two stages.

5.2       Stage 1, to be completed by September 2022, will provide a high-level outline of the outcomes, objectives and key interventions that are proposed for transport in Greater Christchurch, and provide the policy context for the GCTIP. 

5.3       Stage 1 will build off existing plans, strategies and business cases, including the Christchurch Transport Plan (CTP) under development by the City Council. The investment focus for Stage 1 will be on the short-to-medium term, including the next LTP/NLTP cycle, but will provide an indication of the nature of longer-term investments that are likely to be required.

5.4       Given the time available, it is not intended that the Stage 1 plan will involve significant analytical input, including transport modelling.  Instead, it will largely rely on the analysis and modelling that has previously been undertaken for other projects, such as PT Futures and the mode shift plan.  However, the Stage 1 plan will identify the analytical work that will be needed to be completed as part of Stage 2. 

5.5       In response to the GCP Committee’s focus on travel demand management (TDM), the Stage 1 plan will include a preliminary investigation of options for enhanced TDM, and identify the further work needed to progress those options (to be developed in more detail in Stage 2).  This work should be informed by the assessment of transport policy interventions that will be undertaken in parallel as part of the Spatial Plan process. 

 

5.6       The GCTIP will be a companion document to the Stage 1 GCTP, and will set out the proposed transport investments and actions in Greater Christchurch over the next 10 years, with an indicative programme beyond that.

5.7       Stage 2 will be completed once the direction of the preferred urban form from the Spatial Plan is determined, and will provide further detail on the transport policies and actions that are required to give effect to the Spatial Plan.  This second stage of the GCTP will be developed in tandem with the preparation of the Spatial Plan documentation, and will have a longer term investment focus.  It will also identify policy interventions that may be needed to implement the Spatial Plan.

5.8       The Stage 2 plan will also provide the opportunity to update and extend the GCTIP, including a more detailed outline of proposed investments for the next cycle of Long-term plans and the National Land Transport Programme, and for the longer term (10 years+).

6.   Project governance, management and resourcing

6.1       The proposed governance and management structure for the GCTP/GCTIP includes the following levels.

·        GCP Committee – elected member governance oversight

·        CEAG – chief executive oversight and guidance; review advice and reports to GCP

·        Senior Managers Group - senior management review of progress and resolve issues elevated from TMG; allocation of partner resources

·        Transport Managers Group – management oversight of project on behalf of the partners, and review of outputs

·        Project manager/lead – responsible for delivery of the plan and management of the project team

·        Project team – a small team responsible for preparing the plan, including partner staff and contractors as required.

7.   Task outline

7.1       The key tasks for the Stage 1 GCTP/GCTIP are as follows:

a.         Strategic policy overview: Review and compare outcomes and objectives from relevant strategies and policy documents from national, regional, sub-regional and local sources (listed in Attachment 2) to identify policy alignment and any potential gaps

b.         Workshops with officers and GCP Committee to agree on outcomes and objectives to be used for the GCTP.  

c.         Review existing Greater Christchurch plans, programmes and business cases, to build a consolidated picture of current investment direction and assemble relevant material

d.         Undertake a high-level review of the current direction against the agreed outcomes and objectives.  This will be supported by previous analysis, but also identify any gaps that may need to be filled by further analytical work, either in the short-term (as part of the Stage 1 plan), or longer-term (as part of the scope for Stage 2)

e.         Complete any required analysis to address short-term gaps identified above (note this step will be constrained by the time available, so will need to be high-level only)

f.          Review the opportunities for enhanced TDM, including (but not limited to) the assessment of transport policy interventions being undertaken for the Spatial Plan

g.         Workshop outputs from the review in tasks d), e) and f) to develop an emerging transport direction, and assemble available supporting evidence

h.         Review alignment of the emerging transport direction with the Spatial Plan preferred urban form, and determine any adjustments or additions that may be required

i.          Workshop emerging transport direction (including policies and investments) with officers and GCP Committee

j.          Undertake targeted stakeholder engagement (note that the time available for this step will be limited, and further engagement is likely to be needed as part of Stage 2)

k.         Prepare draft plan document for GCP Committee endorsement.

8.   Indicative timetable

8.1       An indicative timetable for the Stage 1 plan is shown below. The timetable has recognised that the Stage 1 Plan needs to be completed by September 2022 to help inform next budget round, and ahead of the local elections.  Note this will mean that some of the technical work will need to be fast-tracked, and some of the tasks will need to overlap.  There will be limited time for stakeholder engagement on the emerging direction.


GCTP/GCTIP Indicative Timetable: Stage 1

9.   Next Steps

9.1       Given the tight timeframe for this project, the TMG has already established a project team made up of key partner staff to commence the work outlined in this report.  The initial focus will be on tasks a) and c) above (compilation of background material for the strategic policy overview and the review of existing plans).  This will enable a progress report to be presented at the next GCP Committee meeting, including a workshop to agree the GCTP objectives.
