4.   Public Forum / Te Huinga Whānui

Part B

 

4.1      Local heritage

Mark Gerrard, Chairperson Historic Places Canterbury, addressed the Board regarding the protection of local heritage values.

Mr Gerrard noted Historic Places Canterbury's concern regarding a report recently presented to the Council on the proposed demolition of the Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library. Concerns about the report related to there being no Heritage Assessment from the Council Heritage Team and no mention of the Council's Heritage Strategy “Our Heritage Our Taonga”. In addition there had been no public engagement on the proposal.

Mr Gerrard noted that following the voicing of similar concerns about the Yaldhurst Memorial Hall proposed disposal, assurances were given there would be a change in process to ensure the Heritage Team would be brought in earlier to the Council decision making process, to advise and assess.

Mr Gerrard said he considers Community Boards often have the best appreciation of local

heritage and asked that the Board be vigilant in its role as local guardians by requiring reports to address the Council's Heritage Policy “Our Heritage Our Taonga” and seeking that the Council Heritage Team’s input and advice be sought where appropriate.

Mr Gerrard pointed out that heritage includes social history and that Historic Places Canterbury considers that when there is a proposal for a building with a social history, there should always be public engagement to ascertain if there is a community use for it.

In response to questions Mr Gerrard clarified that buildings can be a physical reminder of how things were or a marker of a point in time and valuable for their social history.

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

1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1      The purpose of this report is to seek approval for the removal of seven trees on Suva Street as part of the deep-dish channel replacement.

1.2      This report has been written following localised public consultation and Council arborist tree report.

1.3      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 no objections raised during localised consultation.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board:

1.         Approves the removal of the seven trees along Suva Street as shown in Attachment A to the officer’s report on the meeting agenda.

2.         Approves two P10 parking restriction carparks on southern side of Suva Street outside commercial property (52 Middleton Road) as shown in Attachment A to the officer’s report on the meeting agenda.

 

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1      Option 1 (Preferred Option) – Removal of trees

4.1.1   This option involves the removal of seven trees to allow the kerb and channel to be renewed on the current alignment, and results in an additional seven on street carparks.

4.1.2   For each tree removed, two replacement trees will be planted within a local reserve as per CCC Tree Policy.

4.2      Option 2 - Do Nothing:

4.2.1   The do nothing option would mean retaining the existing trees and deep-dish channel. This option is not recommended due to inconsistent road profile, poor tree condition and reduced parking opportunity.

4.3      Option 3 – Retention of trees with kerb build out around the existing trees:

4.3.1   This option is not recommended as it will provide an inconsistent road profile, and would not realise the increase in parking of seven spaces.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

5.1      The seven trees identified for removal is part of the deep-dish channel replacement project on the southern side of Suva Street. The 250m of existing remaining deep-dish channel proposed for replacement runs between Renfrew Street and Middleton Road. This will result in it being consistent with the north side of Suva Street where the deep dish channel was replaced as part of MCR Nor’West Arc Section 2B cycleway construction project.

5.2      The Council’s Arborist report recommends removal of the trees, noting the trees provide limited benefit due to poor condition and rating.

5.3      The proposed design will provide seven additional on street parking spaces

6.   Community Views and Preferences Ngā mariu ā-Hāpori

1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1      The purpose of this report is to seek the approval of the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to install parking restrictions fronting 5 Avenger Crescent.  This report has been written following a request from the owner of a business at 5C Avenger Crescent.

1.2      The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy. The level of significance was determined by the low level of impact and low number of people affected by the recommended decision.

1.3      The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

1.4      The recommended option is to install 10 minute parking restrictions in accordance with Attachment A.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board:

1.         Approves that under clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that parking of vehicles on the north eastern side of Avenger Crescent commencing at a point 105 metres south west of its intersection with Morse Road and extending in a south easterly direction for a distance of 17 metres (as indicated in Attachment A to the report on the meeting agenda), be restricted to a maximum duration of 10 minutes at all times.

2.         Revokes any previous resolutions pertaining to traffic controls made pursuant to any bylaw to the extent that they are in conflict with the traffic controls described in resolution 1 above.

3.         Approves that these resolutions take effect when parking signage and/or road markings that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place (or removed in the case of revocations).

 

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1      Concerns regarding lack of nearby parking spaces for customers were raised by a business owner who owns a cafe on Avenger Crescent. 

3.2      The recommendations in this report will help to achieve the desired community outcome of a well-connected and accessible city through improved road safety.

3.3      Implementing the noted recommendations will provide parking spaces for the customers very close to the café and the visitors of other nearby businesses.

3.4      Options within this report have been assessed against relevant industry-standard design guidance including the sight distance requirements of Council’s Infrastructure Design Standard. 

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1      Maintain the status quo.

4.2      The advantages of this option include:

4.2.1   No new parking restrictions.

4.2.2   No on-going maintenance costs.

4.3      The disadvantages of the option include:

4.3.1   Vehicles are often parked at this location for long periods of time and then customers of the café find it difficult to find any suitable parking spaces near the cafe.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

5.1      Avenger Crescent is a Secondary Collector road. It has many commercial properties along its length.

5.2      There are many on street parking spaces available along Avenger Crescent but most of them were noted to be occupied for a major part of the day.

5.3      A cafe is located at 5C Avenger Crescent.  Most of the on street parking spaces in that street are occupied by vehicles parked for long durations, thereby leaving no space for the café customers to park their vehicles near the café.

5.4      A majority of the customers are truck drivers. The off street parking spaces inside the premises are mostly occupied and even if available, do not appear to be suitable for trucks.

5.5      Customers are not expected to spend longer than 10 minutes in the cafe. Providing 10 minute parking restrictions outside the café would prevent long term parking at that location and also provide parking spaces for the customers close to the café.

5.6      This, apart from providing an appropriate parking space for truck drivers (who are understood to constitute a major portion of the café’s customers), would also reduce the walking distance for customers of the café.

5.7      Approval is required by the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.

5.8      If approved, the recommendations will be implemented within the current financial year.

Community Views and Preferences

5.9      Letters including the consultation plan of the recommended option were sent to the nearby property owners and residents.

5.10    One response was received supporting the recommended option. No responses opposing the recommended option were received.

5.11    The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports the preferred option.

5.12    The do nothing option is inconsistent with community requests to provide suitable parking spaces to the customers of the café.

6.   Policy Framework Implications / Ngā Hīraunga ā- Kaupapa hereStrategic Alignment /Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

6.1      The Council’s strategic priorities have been considered in formulating the recommendations in this report, however this area of work is not specifically covered by an identified priority.

6.2      The recommendations in this report are also consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety and Efficiency Service Plan in the Councils Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028).  

Policy Consistency / Te Whai Kaupapa here

6.3      The recommendations in this report are consistent with the Christchurch Suburban Parking Policy.

Impact on Mana Whenua / Ngā Whai Take Mana Whenua

6.4      The effects of this proposal upon Mana Whenua are expected to be insignificant.

Climate Change Impact Considerations / Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Āhuarangi

6.5      This proposal does not have any significant effect upon carbon emissions and Climate Change.

Accessibility Considerations / Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Hunga Hauā

6.6      This proposal improves accessibility for pedestrians/drivers/cyclists, by providing a safer means of accessing the café at 5C Avenger Crescent. 

7.   Resource Implications / Ngā Hīraunga Rauemi

Capex/Opex / Ngā Utu Whakahaere

7.1      Cost to Implement - approximately $250 and $750 for investigations, consultation and report writing.

7.2      Maintenance/Ongoing costs – approximately $100 per annum.

8.   Legal Implications / Ngā Hīraunga ā-Ture

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

8.1      Part 1, Clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

8.2      The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

8.3      The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Other Legal Implications / Ētahi atu Hīraunga-ā-Ture

8.4      There is a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision

1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1      The purpose of this report is to seek the approval of the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to install a STOP Control on Jones Road at its intersection with Dawsons Road.  This report has been written following a request from a contracting firm who have been consented to establish a quarry near that intersection and are required to make some changes to the road layout as a part of the consent.

1.2      The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy. The level of significance was determined by the low level of impact and low number of people affected by the recommended decision.

1.3      The recommended option is to install a STOP Control in accordance with Attachment A.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board:

1.         Approves, pursuant to Clause 6 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, and s334 of the Local Government Act 1974, that at the new T-intersection formed as a result of road layout changes, a STOP Control be placed against Jones Road (east approach) at its intersection with Dawsons Road, as shown in Attachment A to the report on the meeting agenda.

2.         Revokes any previous resolutions pertaining to traffic controls made pursuant to any bylaw at the existing intersection.

3.         Approves that these resolutions take effect when signage and/or road markings that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place (or removed in the case of revocations).

 

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1      Fulton Hogan have been given consent by the Christchurch City Council and Selwyn District Council to establish a quarry (Roydon Quarry) in Templeton. As part of that consent, a few road layout changes have been designed (through a road safety audit process) in order to maintain the safety and efficiency of the surrounding road network and to cater for the additional vehicle movements caused due to quarry operations.

3.2      For the above mentioned purpose, it is proposed to install a STOP control in accordance with Attachment A.

3.3      The recommendations in this report will help to achieve the desired community outcome of a well-connected and accessible city through improved road safety.

3.4      Options within this report have been assessed against relevant industry-standard design guidance including the sight distance requirements of Council’s Infrastructure Design Standard. 

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1      Maintain the status quo at this intersection.

4.2      The advantages of this option include:

4.2.1   None

4.3      The disadvantages of the option include:

4.3.1   The other road layout changes will be within the boundaries of the Selwyn District Council. Maintaining the status quo will result in an uncontrolled T-intersection at this location.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

5.1      Jones Road is a Primary Collector and Dawsons Road is a Secondary Collector according to the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s One Road Network Classification. Currently, vehicles travelling along Jones Road have the right of way and the vehicles approaching the intersection from both the legs of Dawsons Road are controlled by a STOP sign.

5.2      Fulton Hogan have been given consent by the Christchurch City Council and Selwyn District Council to establish the Roydon Quarry in Templeton, in the area between Maddisons Road, Curraghs Road, Dawsons Road and Jones Road. As part of that consent, a few road layout changes have been designed (through a road safety audit process) in order to maintain the safety and efficiency of the surrounding road network and to cater for the additional vehicle movements caused due to quarry operations. The changes include a new roundabout connecting Jones Road and Dawsons Road northwest of the existing intersection. This roundabout will be within the boundaries of the Selwyn District Council.

5.3      The roundabout construction is programmed to start in the first week of May 2022 and scheduled to complete in November 2022.

5.4      Within the Christchurch City Council’s boundary, the existing Jones Road / Dawsons Road intersection is planned to be converted into a STOP controlled T – intersection, where vehicles travelling on Dawsons Road will have the Right of Way and the vehicles approaching the new T-intersection on Jones Road (east approach) will be controlled by a STOP sign.

5.5      There have been 16 reported crashes at this intersection in since 2017 resulting in serious injuries to six people and minor injuries to 20 people.  

5.6      Approval is required by the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board.

Community Views and Preferences

5.7      ECan, NZ Police, Fire and Emergency NZ and St John NZ were informed regarding these changes. They did not have any concerns.

5.8      No further community consultation has been undertaken as there are no businesses or residential properties in the immediate vicinity of the intersection within the Christchurch City Council boundaries.

5.9      The do nothing option is inconsistent with the quarry’s consent requirements and the need to improve safety at the intersection.

·    Peace Rock

The Peace Rock has now been installed in Harrington Park, Riccarton. This project was first proposed to the Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board in June 2019 when a deputation of Riccarton residents, supported by Oak Development Trust approached the Board about the introduction of a Peace Garden in Harrington Park to honour cultural unity following the terror attacks of 15 March 2019.

With the project needing to be altered into manageable sizes, the installation of the Peace Rock marks the near-completion of the first stage. Co-ordinated by Oak Development Trust, business support has been generously provided by Parkhouse Garden Makers, Decra Art, City Care and Mackleys Transport for goods and labour.

The Peace Rock is located at the Peverel Street entrance to Harrington Park, with a poem written by Sirwan Mohamdi, one of the local residents who made the original presentation to the Board.  Mohamdi, a Muslim migrant originally from Iraq, wrote the poem in the aftermath of 15 March.  He approached Council who connected him with the Oak Development Trust.  He still continues to volunteer for the Trust and be involved in the Riccarton community, assisting with the Trust's Ethnic Food Bank programme.

 

The poem reads;

Peace, Love and Unity
A recurring theme in my book
To a brighter future we must look
Muslim, Christian or Jew
This is for all of you.
Black, brown, yellow or white
Together we must unite
And push back against hate
Because there is no time to wait.
Now rise and take each other's hand
As this is the only way we can make a stand.

The Templeton Walking School bus had a very successful first week with 9 students, that number has now grown to 14.

 

 

 

 

 

 

·    Community Development Network Trust Youth Hangout

The Youth Hangout is coming along nicely. There have been a few delays due to covid-19 however CDN are hoping to be fully moved in by Easter.

 

·    Riccarton Community Garden update 

The Riccarton Community Garden and Pataka which has been situated on Kainga Ora land at 151-153 Peverel Street since its inception in 2014 is on the move.  As the double section block is part of Kainga Ora's Riccarton building programme, they signalled the need for the organisation to vacate the land.  A reprieve was granted for 18 months, enabling the garden and pantry to stay on albeit on a smaller space, whilst looking for another location.  The Riccarton Garden and Pataka Trust has been formed and is now in the process of securing two different sites, one for the garden and one for the pantry.  It is expected that once negotiations have been completed, the transition will be completed by 30 September 2022. 

·    Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library Trust

The Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library Trust is in the process of winding down the organisation.  This includes preserving memorial artefacts and dispersing the books.  St Peters Church has offered to house a set of the memorial boards as well as take over the organisation the ANZAC Day services in the Upper Riccarton area.

The books are currently being sorted with those of a possible heritage value being kept aside for re-homing in an appropriate location.  The Trustees have been eager to have as many of the other books as possible go to the wider community.  So far recipients have included rest homes, other volunteer/community libraries as well as some of the community library 'boxes' that are located around the city.  The Library Fridge in Clarence Reserve in Riccarton has been one such recipient.  The sorting and distribution is proving to be a lengthy process.

·    Connect 2022

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]

·     Hornby Centre – Update from the Project Team

The piling began slowly as modifications to improve the pile capacities at a shallower depth were undertaken.  However, the piling rate has increased as piling progresses and the piling is now 60% complete.  The design team is well underway with the design amendment to add the hydrotherapy pool.  Fabrication of the pool tank and shipping from overseas will dictate the construction programme and, ultimately, the opening date.  The unpredictability of the remaining piling, hydrotherapy pool sourcing, and global shipping issues will continue to be a challenge.  Hornby High School has expressed interest in having students involved in the construction somehow.  We will explore opportunities with them and hold site visits at appropriate times.

3.3.2   Scheduled work

·     Hei Hei Community Centre

Work on the Hei Hei Community Centre is scheduled to commence on 27 April expected to be completed by 22 June.

·     Harvard Lounge

The scheduled work on the Harvard Lounge that is currently underway is expected to be completed by the 6 May.  They will begin work on the Hei Hei Community Centre from 27 April to 22 June so there will be a slight cross over.

·     Waimairi Road Community Centre

The Waimairi Road Community Centre refurbishment has been completed.  This included upgrade of the fire safety and HVAC systems, painting, sanding the floors and recoating, roof and guttering replacement and work to the grounds surrounding the building.  The facility is used by the Avonhead Playcentre on weekday mornings, with other community use in the afternoons, evenings and weekends.  The report with photos is attached.

3.3.3   Halswell Bowls Club Update

An area that within the Halswell Bowling Club lease footprint has been fenced off and is to be developed as the Club’s third bowling green. This was always part of the Club’s plan when it renovated the clubrooms but was put on hold. The Club is now in a position to install the green and the club membership is expanding rapidly hence there is a need for the additional space. A Council loan has been made towards the development.

 

3.3.4   Halswell Rugby League Club

Recent work on Halswell Domain on the front field by Halswell Road was to bring some services from the road through to the Halswell Rugby League Club’s new building. The area will be reinstated appropriately once the work has finished. 

 

3.3.5   Council Engagement and Consultation.

·     Draft Annual Plan

The Christchurch City Council's Draft Annual Plan 2022-23 was released for consultation on 11th March 2022 and is open for feedback until 18th April 2022. A Board Briefing was held on 22 March 2022 to give members an initial opportunity to look at and discuss the Draft Annual Plan. A Submissions Committee meeting was held on 5 April 2022 to formally consider a Board submission.

4.   Advice Provided to the Community Board  

 

4.1      Street Trees Project

The attached memorandum (Attachment C) provides information on a maintenance project led by the Council and lines company Orion to ensure street trees throughout Ōtautahi-Christchurch are compliant with the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010, with regard to overhead lines.

The key objectives of the programme are to:

·    Ensure Council is compliant with the regulations concerning trees and overhead lines.

·    Maintain healthy well-conditioned trees and replace redundant trees with appropriate species in accordance with the Christchurch Tree Policy.

A number of street trees in areas throughout Christchurch are deemed non-compliant with the regulations ranging from a small number of trees that are in contact with power lines which are of highest health and safety concern, through to trees that are not in contact and can be made compliant with maintenance. In total 846 non-compliant trees were identified and categorised, with priority given to those most in need of attention.

Working in partnership with Orion, staff have explored a range of alternative solutions to reduce the number of necessary tree removals including moving or undergrounding existing power lines where possible. The cost of this further work is still under negotiation with Orion.

            Of the initial 846 trees identified as non-compliant 139 are now compliant following pruning or removal. To date five trees have been removed, these were all assessed to have health and/or structural issues. The removal of trees is considered to be a last resort. Council recognises the importance of trees to our city’s identity. In the event a tree needs to be removed, in line with the Council’s Tree Policy, “two new trees will be planted with the projected canopy cover replacing that which is lost within 20 years (additional planting may be required).”

Community Boards will be updated if trees in their ward are significantly impacted.

 

4.2      Yaldhurst Memorial Hall, 524 Pound Road - Update on Expressions of Interest Process

The attached memorandum (Attachment D) provides an update regarding the Expressions of Interest process regarding Yaldhurst Memorial Hall, 524 Pound Road, following the decision made in the adoption of the 2021-2031 Long Term Plan:

That the Council undertake an expression of interest (EOI) process for Yaldhurst Memorial Hall, to identify a community based group able to own, upgrade, operate and maintain the hall at no cost to Council. The property can be transferred as a community asset transfer to an appropriate community group for a less than market price subject to the new owners repairing the hall to a minimum 67% of NBS standard, and operating and maintaining it for community purposes for a minimum of five years.  The repair, operation and maintenance of the facility would be at no cost to ratepayers. The EOI would apply to the building only, with the land to remain with Council.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) were sought for community based groups who might take over the building to repair and run it at no cost to Council. While EOI were initially required to be submitted by 17 December 2021 there has been an extension of time to allow time for two interested groups to explore the possibility and benefits of a collaborative response.

There has been an invitation for the original respondent to add an addendum to its response to indicate support of the second group and the potential access to other sources of funding by 25 March 2022. An evaluation panel review is scheduled for 8 April 2022.
