Delta Community Support Trust

Mike Stanley spoke on behalf of the Delta Community Support Trust (‘Delta’) regarding their services, what pressures they have faced and changes they have made in the present climate, and what they envisage going forward.

Mr Stanley noted that he is the new General Manager at the Delta and highlighted what they do in the community:

·     Delta has been around in the North Avon area for over 25 years.

·     Three divisions: Evergreen Club, Community Development Services and Friendship Link.

·     Evergreen Club programme for over 65 year olds: providing activities, outings, exercise classes, socialising, and support to ensure they are healthy and safe.

·     Friendship Link to support young adults and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.

·     Community Development Services: food bank gone from around 1,300 to 3,200 food panels with a growing need; Delta Inn for people to come in have a meal for a nominal charge on Fridays, to build community and receive advice if they wish on budgeting, etc.

·     Refugee support: playgroup for young mothers, and other forms of support (seeking refugees’ input what support is most useful).

·     Breaking down social isolation, promoting inclusion, and building sense of community.

The Chairperson thanked Mr Stanley for his presentation.

 

 

4.2       Jennifer Dalziel – 10 Shirley Road / Public Toilets

Jennifer Dalziel spoke regarding the proposal for toilets at 10 Shirley Road, and her concern that there is a history of things being put at 10 Shirley Road, thought to be good ideas, but becoming detrimental to the site, e.g. ping pong table and wayfinder trail signboard, which both, she suggested, detract from the site.

Ms Dalziel had audited the public toilets in the area to demonstrate the issue for proposing toilets for 10 Shirley Road, visiting the MacFarlane Park toilets, St Albans Park toilets, and the MacFarlane Park Community Gardens toilets on Jebson Street. Running through the attached photos, she highlighted issues of graffiti, litter, vandalism, and maintenance and signage deficiencies.  

Ms Dalziel noted her fellow resident, Don Gould, also undertook a night visit and observed that most of the toilets were not locked, and none of the lights were working. Ms Dalziel noted that though the MacFarlane Park Community Gardens toilets were the most pleasant, a leaking drinking fountain was noted there, and though some issues had been addressed through Snap, Send, Solve, the fix for the lights at St Albans Park resulted in the lights going constantly.

Ms Dalziel concluded her point that though it may seem a good idea to put a toilet on 10 Shirley Road, it invites the issues observed in her visit to the other toilets discussed, suggesting it may not be a good idea in the long run.

The Chairperson thanked Ms Dalziel for her presentation.

8.   Marshland Turners Safety Improvements

 

Board Consideration

The Board took the report as read, and the Traffic Engineer addressed questions on the report from the Board:

·         The report came about from the speed limit reduction where staff were asked to investigate further interventions for intersection improvements. This follows on from Ouruhia School and community feedback from that project highlighting near misses and people feeling uneasy turning right.

·         There was not funding at the time to investigate, but there is now fortunately funding to address safety improvements.

·         The question of whether to have yellow lines on both sides of the road, to have certainty of that space on the west side of the road, was asked. The Traffic Engineer’s advice was that there have been no issues identified with vehicles parking there. The Board accepted that advice on the basis of noting that staff will monitor the point of any parking on the western side and come back to the Board if necessary to add relevant restrictions.

·         It was clarified that the risk rating/safety improvement was assessed in terms of Marshland Road as an entire corridor, rather in terms of the specific isolated intersection.

On the basis of adding a further note that staff will monitor parking on the west side of Marshland Road opposite the intersection with Turners Road, Pauline Cotter moved that the officer recommendations be adopted. The motion was seconded by Mike Davidson and when put to the meeting was carried unanimously.

11. Elected Members’ Information Exchange Te Whakawhiti Whakaaro o Te Kāhui Amorangi

Part B

Board members exchanged information on the following matters of interest:

 

11.1    Westminster Street Demolition Site

Noting a gum tree to be removed from 276/8 Westminster Street as part of the demolition works, a site visit with the Council Arborist was requested.

The need for community input for the site was also discussed, as was the possibility of not draining it, but rather naturalising it as a wetland. Bearing in mind the objective to open up the Park behind for CPTED reasons, it was requested that the Board receive information on what is planned for the site, with all these issues in mind.

 

11.2    Factory Road Traffic Issues

Follow up was sought on communication with a resident around their concern with traffic volume, and size, frequency and speed of trucks, traversing Factory Road and shaking houses. There was also suggestion of damage to the road, such as potholing.

 

11.3    Courtenay Street

Noted that Courtenay Street residents are looking for contact from the Council on what is happening with the street.

 

11.4    Springfield Road

An accident/near miss was reported at the corner of Springfield Road and St Albans Road involving a person in a wheelchair, with suggestion that there are no safe crossing spots on Springfield Road.

A pedestrian refuge at that intersection was noted though. Also, it was observed that Springfield Road would not be a boundary issue with the neighbouring Board following the boundary adjustments subsequent to the upcoming election.

 

11.5    Cranford Street/Berwick Street Corner

A safety concern for the corner was noted in terms of having the two lanes going into Cranford Street where it was suggested left turning cars generally end up half way over the second lane because of the lack of space for the intersection. It was queried what might be done for the issue, whether it be going down to a single lane as a suggestion.

The Board considered this matter could be brought up the next time there is a briefing on the DEMP.

 

11.6    Innes Road Accident

Reference was made to information sought in respect  of an Innes Road accident. However, the Board noted the updated reporting in the media, which members could share between themselves; the Board thus saw no purpose from that reporting in pursuing the matter further. It was indicated that updated reporting in relation to the outcome of the matter was that it is going no further.

 

11.7    Belfast Community Network

Follow up was sought from staff in respect of how the Network is doing further to the presentation earlier in the year from the Network outlining the challenges they are facing in that community.

The Board considered that it write to local MP, Matt Doocey, in relation to providing resources for stressed out volunteers in this challenging time of Covid. The Chairperson agreed to progress that, and also agreed to send the letter to all local MPs.

Staff noted some funding came from the Board to support the Network following their presentation.

 

11.8    Derelict House in Francis Avenue

Follow up was sought in respect of a derelict house in Francis Avenue that attracts complaints from neighbours.

 

11.9    Palm Drive

Update was sought in respect of issues raised by residents in relation to Palm Drive.

 

11.10 Covered Bus Shelter for outside BP on Cranford Street

Follow up was sought on a covered bus shelter for Cranford Street in the region of the BP Service Station that that community have been asking for.

 

11.11 Rutland Street Speed Limit

It was queried why Rutland Street is not being reduced to 40km/h in the Papanui speed reduction programme; it being suggested that with the cycle lane coming down there this should be revisited.

 

11.12 Fireworks

Concern was shared in relation to the fireworks going on around the community (the six shots) that  this was associated with communicating nefarious drug-related activity.

 

11.13 Enforcement for Parking on Clearway on St Albans Street outside Doctors Rooms

It was requested that Enforcement staff check for parking in the clearway on St Albans Street outside the Doctors Rooms, which was suggested to always have cars parked on it in the mornings when it is supposed to be a clearway.

 

Meeting concluded at 10.47am.
