4.   Public Forum / Te Huinga Whānui

Part B

4.1      Andrew Rusbatch

Andrew Rusbatch, local resident, addressed the Board on behalf of the Rusbatch Family regarding a naming proposal for a new Reserve in the Belfast area.

Mr Rusbatch explained that his family has strong connections to the Belfast area. His Grandparents purchased a parcel of land in Belfast in the 1950’s and it has been in the family for over 70 years. The land, which is on Englefield Road, is now being developed into a residential subdivision. The Rusbatch Family also owned a civil construction company which completed various infrastructure work throughout Christchurch. The development plan includes a reserve at 46 Englefield Road which will also act as a stormwater retention basin.

Mr Rusbatch asked the Board to consider naming the reserve after Rusbatch Reserve. The Rusbatch family would also be interested in donating a park bench and plaque to place on the reserve.

Mr Rusbatch noted that this proposal is consistent with other place names in the area such as Johns Road and Englefield Road which are named after prominent local families.

The Board thanked Mr Rusbatch for his presentation and requested advice from staff on his proposal to name the new reserve at 46 Englefield Road after his Grandparents, and donate a park bench with a plaque.

The Community Board Advisor informed the Board that subsequent to sending the letter, Countdown Northwood has extended an invitation to the Board to have a tour of the new Countdown Belfast facility once construction has progressed further.

The Community Board Advisor also informed the Board that the letter from the Northwood Residents’ Association was also sent to the Papanui-Innes Community Board, who have already confirmed that a cycle connection along Radcliffe Road connecting with the Northern Corridor cycle path is being planned and construction is budgeted later in the LTP.

Sam MacDonald expressed disappointment at the suggestion in the letter from Sarah Pallett MP that the Council needed to fund the proposed footpath, when the original commitment was to seek funding from the Ministry of Education.

 

 

Community Board Resolved FWHB/2022/00016

Part B

That the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board:

1.         Receive the correspondence from Countdown Northwood regarding the upcoming opening of Countdown Belfast and the closure of the Countdown Northwood store.

3.         Receive the correspondence from Sarah Pallett, the Member of Parliament for Ilam, regarding the proposed footpath through the Cobham Intermediate, Burnside Primary and Allenvale School site.

Sam MacDonald/Shirish Paranjape                                                                                                                   Carried

 

8.   Proposed Road Names - 251 Styx Mill Road and 285 Highsted Road

 

Board Comment

The Manager Resource Consents introduced the report and explained that the proposed road names are connected to the history of the site and some of the natural and physical features of the location.

Aaron Keown suggested that Quail Road might be a stronger option than Collies Road. The Manager Resource Consents explained that Collies Road relates to the Collies Drain and it is common for road names to reflect nearby waterways, however staff are unaware of the background to why it was originally named Collies Drain.

The Board discussed the suggestion, but decided to proceed with the original staff recommendations. James Gough moved that the staff recommendations be adopted. The motion was seconded by Mike Wall and when put to the vote was carried unanimously.

 

Community Board Resolved FWHB/2022/00017

Part C

That the Waimāero Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board:

1.         Approves the following new road and lane names for 251 Styx Mill Road (RMA/2021/708) and 285 Highsted Road (RMA/2021/2922).

a.         Road 1 - Collies Road

b.         Road 2 - Flaxmill Road

c.         Road 3 - Kiekie Road

d.         Lane 1 - Lizard Lane

e.         Lane 2 - Rākau Lane

James Gough/Mike Wall                                                                                                                                         Carried

 

 

9.   Todd Avenue / Wairakei Road Intersection - Proposed No Stopping Restrictions

 

The Traffic Engineer introduced this item and explained that this proposal originated from a customer service request that came via the Board. A local resident had concerns about visibility at the intersection, particularly when the nearby Funeral Chapel is holding a service which places increased demand on the parking supply.

The Chairperson thanked the Traffic Engineer for their work in bringing this item to the Board. Aaron Keown moved that the staff recommendations be adopted. The motion was seconded by Bridget Williams and when put to the meeting was carried unanimously.

 

Community Board Resolved FWHB/2022/00018

Part C

That the Waimāero Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board:

1.         Approves that in accordance with Clause 7 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017, that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time at the intersection of Todd Avenue and Wairakei Road as indicated in the drawing TG140770 Issue 1, dated 30/11/2021 (refer Attachment A) and detailed in recommendations 1a-1b below:

a.         That the stopping of vehicles is prohibited at all times on the east side of Todd Avenue commencing at its intersection with Wairakei Road, and extending in a northerly direction into Todd Avenue for a distance of 15 metres.

2.         Revoke 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 resolutions 1a – 1b above.

3.         Approves that these resolutions 1 to 2 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).

Aaron Keown/Bridget Williams                                                                                                                            Carried

 

 

10. Hawksbury Avenue and Somme Street Intersection: Proposed P3 and No Stopping Restrictions

 

The Traffic Engineer introduced this item and explained that this item originated from a request from the St Albans Catholic School. Recent road improvements along the school’s street frontage including the addition of a cycleway have had an effect on parents’ ability to use that area for dropping off and collecting school children, and there are also concerns about children crossing the cycleway. This proposal is to create a drop-off/pick-up zone in another location, and add no-stopping restrictions at the nearby intersection to improve safety.

Mike Wall commented that he is a regular visitor to the area and had seen the problem first hand, so fully supported the proposal.

James Gough moved that the staff recommendation be adopted. The motion was seconded by Mike wall and when put to the vote was carried unanimously.

12. Waimāero Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board Area Report - April 2022

 

The following Officers presented to the Board regarding the two memoranda included as Attachments D and E to the report in the agenda regarding traffic and parking issues in the Merivale area:

·    The Head of Planning and Consents

·    The Planning Manager

·    The Team Leader Traffic Operations

·    The Transport Engineer

 

The Officers delivered a PowerPoint presentation which is included as Attachment A to these minutes.

 

During the discussion between Officers and the Board the following points were raised:

·    The original Merivale Parking Plan conducted in 2008 pre-dates the Suburban Parking Policy. Now that we have the Suburban Parking Policy, that needs to guide our work in this area.

·    The Board expressed a concern that the current approach appears to be considering each street in isolation with a particular focus on Rugby Street. The Board emphasised that there are a number of problems being experienced throughout the Merivale area and highlighted that these relate both to parking and traffic operations.

·    The Board discussed conducting a more strategic review of parking and traffic safety operations in the wider area.

·    There is a high concentration of schools in this area with city-wide catchments, so this needs to be taken into account.

·    Officers advised that there is an Otautahi Christchurch Plan under development which is a spatial plan that could lead to the creation of neighbourhood plan. This may address issues such as the traffic and parking issues in Merivale.

·    Officers advised the Board that when the 2008 Merivale Parking Plan was developed, parking demand was found to significantly exceed supply. This issue is likely to have been further amplified with intensification in the area since then.

·    Care will need to be taken, for example, to avoid shifting demand from one street to another which underlines the importance of a strategic approach.

·    Common feedback from residents is that the streets are too narrow to allow parking on both sides of the road. Most streets in this area are wide enough to support parking on both sides of the road under current standards, it can be a tight fit but this also has the effect of lowering the average speed. Wider streets are more likely to experience problems with excessive speed.

·    The Board discussed whether the purpose of a parking review would be to increase the volume of parking spaces, or to ration them between various user groups. Officers advised that there is a finite length of kerb which can be legally used for parking, the only way to increase the supply is to convert it to angle parking but this would not suit most of the streets in the area. It is for this reason that the 2008 Plan sought to find a balance between time-restricted parking and non-restricted parking.

Following the discussion the Board decided to add clauses to their motion to request a review of traffic and parking operations in the area bordered by Heaton Street, Rossall Street, Carlton Mill Road and Papanui Road with the findings being reported back to the Board. The Board also requested regular progress updates on the review.

This motion was moved by Bridget Williams and Seconded by James Gough. When put to the vote the motion was carried unanimously.

3.   Key Points Ngā Take Matua

Strategic Alignment Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

3.1       The recommendations in this report align to the Council's Community Outcome of Resilient Communities including:

·   Celebration of our identity through arts, culture, heritage and sport and recreation

·   Valuing the voices of all cultures and ages (including children)

Decision Making Authority Te Mana Whakatau

1.1       Determine the allocation of the discretionary Response Fund for each community (including any allocation towards a Youth Development Fund).

1.2       Allocations must be consistent with any policies, standards or criteria adopted by the Council

1.3       The Fund does not cover:

·   Legal challenges or Environment Court challenges against the Council, Council Controlled organisations or Community Board decisions

·   Projects or initiatives that change the scope of a Council project or that will lead to ongoing operational costs to the Council (though Community Boards can recommend to the Council that it consider a grant for this purpose).

Assessment of Significance and Engagement Te Mana Whakatau

1.4       The decisions in this report are of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

3.2       The level of significance was determined by the number of people affected and/or with an interest.

3.3       Due to the assessment of low significance, no further community engagement and consultation is required.

4.   Applicant/ Te Kaitono - Nicholas Book

4.1       Age: 16

4.2       School: Christ's College

4.3       Suburb:  Bishopdale

4.4       Event seeking support for:  2022 U16 FIBA Asia Cup in Qatar from 12 to 19 June 2022 and the U17 FIBA World Cup in Spain from 2 to 10 July 2022

4.5       Nicholas is a current member of Basketball New Zealand's Junior National Program, which identifies and selects the 'best' junior athletes in New Zealand.  Through Nicholas's involvement in this program, he has been selected to compete as part of the New Zealand's Men's Team at the U16 FIBA Asia Cup (postponed from 2021).

4.6       Nicholas Book has been playing basketball since he was 8 years old.  He is in Year 12 at Christ's College and plays for their Senior A team.

4.7       Nicholas was recently invited to attend the NBA academy camp invitational in Canberra, which he attended for a week in March 2022.  He was also recently announced in the Canterbury Rams team, with the season due to start on 28 April 2022.

4.8       He has also played representative level basketball for Canterbury, for the U15 rep team and for the last two years, the U17 Canterbury rep team.  For the past two years he was selected for the U16 Men’s Basketball team, however COVID meant many tournaments and trips were cancelled or postponed.

4.9       The 2022 U16 FIBA Asia Cup is a pinnacle event, with teams finishing in the top 4 gaining the qualification to the 2022 U17 FIBA World Cup and a chance for New Zealand to compete on the world stage. These events are also an important recruitment tool for athletes such as Nicholas, looking to gain a sport scholarship to a US college to play basketball, with many college scouts in attendance to recruit athletes.

4.10    Nicholas is looking at a variety of fundraising opportunities to assist with his costs involved in these events.  These include running a raffle and holding a celebrity golf tournament and auction.  He is also applying to the Fund for Excellence at Christ's College and applying to the Papanui Rotary Club.

4.11    The following table provides a breakdown of the costs for the events:

3.2       Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Liaison Meeting

The second Community Liaison Meeting of the year took place on Wednesday, 13 April, via Zoom.   The guest speaker was Hana Saemon-Beck, the Community Activator at CityCare.  Hana spoke to the group about the support and resources she can provide through her role for community projects.  Their focus is on outdoor, green spaces, environmental projects and occasional building projects.

There was a discussion with the group regarding COVID, and two years on, what the impacts have been on their organisations; the not so good, unexpected benefits and what the future holds.  Staff plan to revisit this topic in more detail at the next liaison meeting.

A positive theme raised is that people have become very adept at using online meeting platforms and working from home, doing phone calls, emails and online chats, although they still miss working with colleagues in person.

A negative impact raised is dealing with disgruntled parents as seasons have been cut short. Numbers are also down for some groups, and they are relying on funding to cover costs that fees normally cover.

The next Community Liaison meeting will be on 15 June 2022 at St Christopher’s Church in Avonhead. The guest speaker will be Joss Clarke, the well-being advisor for Kāinga Ora.
