Report of Te Pou Matua:

Lisa Barwood, Leasing Consultant

General Manager Pouwhakarae:

Mary Richardson, General Manager Citizens and Community
mary.richardson@ccc.govt.nz

 

1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report is to provide advice to the Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board regarding the granting of a lease to Canterbury Genealogy Society Incorporated over part of the building at Parkview Lounge being part of the wider Parklands Community Centre. This report has been written as the current lease has expired and the group is seeking a further lease. 

1.2       The Canterbury Genealogy Society was previously known as New Zealand Society of Genealogist – Canterbury Branch but have recently become an incorporated society in their own right due to the larger organisation having financial difficulties and the Canterbury branch being financially secure; this is to ensure they can keep providing their services to the community.

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 an assessment of the number of people affected, the level of impact on those affected and there being little to no cost to the Council in approving the proposed lease.

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board:

1.         Grants a lease to Canterbury Genealogy Society Incorporated over part of Parklands Community Centre known as Parkview Lounge located at 75 Queenspark Drive for a period up to five years at an annual rental of $5,200 per annum plus GST with three-yearly rent reviews in accordance with section 61(2A) of the Reserves Act 1977.

2.         Authorises the Property Consultancy Manager to conclude and administer the terms and conditions of the lease.

 

 

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1       To enable Canterbury Genealogy Society to keep providing their services to the local community as well as the wider Christchurch and Canterbury residents.

3.2       To provide certainty to Canterbury Genealogy Society for the future knowing they have a place to base themselves and provide their services as they have done for nearly 30 years.

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       Run a Request for Proposal (RFP) tender process for the lease of the space.

4.2       The advantage of an RFP is that it opens up the opportunity to other community groups.

4.3       This was not considered as there are other community spaces within the local area available for hire including neighbouring recreation facilities and community spaces. There has been no other demands for this space which was underutilised.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

The Building and Current Leases

5.1       Parklands Community Centre is located at 75 Queenspark Drive and situated within the larger Parklands Reserve. The land is gazetted as Local Purpose Community Reserve by gazette notice 1988 page 654 on 25 November 2000 with legal description being Lot 1 Deposited Plan 51630.

5.2       The Canterbury Genealogy Society is located in the part of the Parklands Community Centre known as Parkview Lounge, they have three former offices to house their library and resources for people to be able to access data for the purpose of tracing their family history.

5.3       Lease Area outlined in red:

 

5.4       Other permanent tenants within the building include Parklands United Sports Club and Parklands Toy Library.

5.5       Canterbury Genealogy Society provide a comprehensive service that includes over 4,000 books, CD’s, microfiche, computers and a large selection of paper records, they were at Shirley Community Centre for over 20 years until the earthquakes took the building away. They were then living out of boxes trying to find a home.  They have been at Parkview Lounge for the last seven years and would like to continue as long as they are able too. 

5.6       Their membership numbers are very strong and have stayed steady since 2016 at around 250 members that will come from as far as Rolleston and Rangiora to access the services.

5.7       A new lease will give the group some certainty to continue their service and members are happy with the location regardless of where they travel from. The community have been very supportive and they have a lot of locals that pop in to see what they are about and have a chat.

5.8       The proposed term is five years with an annual rental of $5,200 per annum plus GST.

Impact on Mana Whenua Ngā Whai Take Mana Whenua

6.4       The decision does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Mana Whenua, their culture and traditions.

6.5       The proposal was forwarded to Mahaanui Kurataio Limited for comment, if there is any feedback this will be updated at the time the report is heard.

6.6       Canterbury Genealogy has a number of resources to assist research in Māori whakapapa with some members actively researching Māori and Moriori ancestry.  Guest speakers have included Takerei Norton speaking on Ngāi Tahu Archives, including Kareao, an archives database giving access to manuscripts, photographs, maps, biographies, oral histories, taonga, and audio-visual material.

Other He mea anō

8.1       The Council has delegated to Community Boards the power to grant leases of local purpose reserves in accordance with section 61 of the Reserves Act 1977 and to authorise staff to sign all required documentation.

 

Other Legal Implications Ētahi atu Hīraunga-ā-Ture

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

8.3       The legal consideration is the entering into of a lease with a community group.

8.4       This report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit as the matter of preparing a lease is a routine matter.

9.   Risk Management Implications Ngā Hīraunga Tūraru

9.1       There is a risk of some reputational damage or negative impact on the Council’s image in not granting a lease to a group whose work is well known in the community. This may result in a minor disengagement with the community.

3.1       Throughout 2016 and 2017, a Transport Network Improvement scheme for Travis Road, Bower Avenue and the internal roading network within QEII Park was developed through a multi-agency partnership approach. This involved Council transport and facilities management staff along with representatives of Ministry of Education (MoE), Environment Canterbury (Ecan), Red Bus, New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA, now Waka Kotahi) and the NZTA-led ‘Safer Journeys to School’ working group (that also comprised of multiple agency stakeholders).

In accordance with consent conditions, responsibility for delivering the sections of the scheme adjoining (and within) the Council (Taiora: QEII RSC) and MoE (Schools) development areas lay with the respective project teams.

3.3       The approved scheme included the installation of cycle lanes along both sides of Travis Road between Anzac Drive/Frosts Road and Bower Avenue. To accommodate the cycle lanes in the road section between Wattle Drive and Bower Avenue, the existing flush median needed to be removed in order to retain existing on-street parking.

3.4       For various reasons, including confusion over project scope and associated responsibilities between the Council and the MoE’s project team working on the QEII Schools development, implementation of the approved scheme was not completed east of the QEII Schools boundary on the north side of the road and east of Wattle Drive on the south side of the road.

3.5       The partial completion of the eastbound cycle lane on the north side of the road, and its abrupt termination east of the Schools site, also resulted in a significant road safety issue. To address the identified road safety issue, and following clarification of project scope and responsibilities (between the Council and the MoE/QEII Schools project team), staff from the Council’s Traffic Operations Team sought to complete installation of the approved scheme in May 2019 (including removal of flush median and installation of cycle lanes). This action was met with opposition from local businesses, who questioned the need for the cycle lanes and raised safety-related concerns about the planned removal of the flush median.  A number of events followed this, including a Board deputation and presentation of petition against the proposed works by a local business owner, a site meeting with the business owner, staff and Community Board members, as well as a number of meetings and communications between staff the Community Board.

3.6       The current situation is that the scheme remains only partially implemented, cycle lanes have not been installed on Travis Road between Bower Avenue and Wattle Drive, and the flush median remains in place.

3.7       After discussions with Councillors Daniels and Mauger, it was decided that the flush median will be retained as per the request of the businesses nearby. In order to accommodate the cycle lanes on both sides of Travis Road and retain the flush median, parking has to be prohibited along one side of the road.

3.8       Based on the existing demand, staff feel that parking needs to be retained along the southern side of Travis Road between the Bower Avenue and Wattle Drive intersections. Parking on the northern side needs to be prohibited to accommodate the flush median and cycle lanes within the available road width.

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       The previously approved design which involved removal of the flush median and retaining the on street parking spaces on both sides.

4.1.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides a safe cycling infrastructure.

·     Retains existing on-street parking spaces.

4.1.2   The disadvantages of the option include:

·     Does not address the request of the adjacent business owner(s) and some members of the public to retain the existing flush median.

4.2       Maintain the status quo.

4.2.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Retains existing on-street parking spaces.

·     Addresses the request of the adjacent business owner(s) and some members of the public to retain the existing flush median.

4.2.2   The disadvantages of the option include:

·     Does not provide a safe cycling infrastructure.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

5.1       The Transport Network Improvements scheme for Travis Road and Bower Avenue, previously approved by the Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board on 19 March 2018 and the Council on 22 November 2018, remains only partially implemented. Specifically, approved road layout changes including the installation of cycle lanes, have not been competed on the section of Travis Road between Bower Avenue and Wattle Drive.

5.2       As discussed earlier, this was due to the opposition received for the planned removal of the existing flush median from some local business owners, occupiers and some members of the public in the local community.

5.3       The design has been altered to accommodate the flush median and the cycle lanes on both sides of the road by removing the on street parking spaces along the northern side of Travis Road between the Bower Avenue and Wattle Drive intersections.

5.4       As mentioned in 0, the shared paths and cycle lanes around this location were approved by the Council in November 2018. The Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board’s approval is required for the general layout, new road markings and parking restrictions.

5.5       If approved, the recommendations will be implemented in this financial year or in the early stages of the next financial year.

Community Views and Preferences

5.6       An information leaflet detailing the parking removal and line marking changes was emailed to 11 key stakeholders, including local schools and cycling groups. 

5.7       Staff also hand delivered information leaflets to the affected properties and spoke to the businesses on Travis Road between Wattle Drive and Bower Avenue including the school.

5.8       Any comments could be emailed directly to the project team by Tuesday 29 March 2022. No feedback was received within this time.

5.9       The Team Leader Parking Compliance has no concerns with the preferred option.

5.10    The alternative options considered are contrary to the Council’s goal of providing a safe cycling infrastructure or the local community’s preferences.

6.   Policy Framework Implications Ngā Hīraunga ā- Kaupapa here

Strategic Alignment Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

6.1       The Council’s strategic priorities have been considered in formulating the recommendations in this report. Provision of safe cycling infrastructure helps promote more sustainable transport mode choices, thereby supporting the Council’s strategic priority of ‘meeting the challenge of climate change through every means available’.

6.2       This report also supports:

6.2.1   Activity:

·     Level of Service:   Level of Service: 10.5.42 Increase the infrastructure provision for active and public modes.

Policy Consistency Te Whai Kaupapa here

6.3       The decision is consistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies.

Impact on Mana Whenua Ngā Whai Take Mana Whenua

6.4       The decision does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Mana Whenua, their culture and traditions.

Climate Change Impact Considerations Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Āhuarangi

6.5       Both the previously approved scheme and the newly proposed scheme include measures to encourage cycling, which has associated positive changes in terms of reduced carbon emissions and effects of Climate Change.

Accessibility Considerations Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Hunga Hauā

6.6       Provision of safe cycling infrastructure helps to provide road users and people in the community with different, and sustainable, transport mode choices to meet their individual accessibility needs.

6.7       Removal of parking, indicated in the alternate scheme option, may impact on accessibility to local businesses and services for some people.

7.   Resource Implications Ngā Hīraunga Rauemi

Capex/Opex Ngā Utu Whakahaere

7.1       Cost to Implement – approximately $26,000.

7.2       Maintenance/Ongoing costs – less than $1,000 per year.

7.3       Funding Source – Traffic Operations School Safety budget for installation, and existing maintenance budgets for on-going maintenance.

8.   Legal Implications Ngā Hīraunga ā-Ture

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

8.1       Part 1, Clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides the Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution. Part 2, Clause 18 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides the Council with the authority to install special vehicle lanes by resolution.

8.2       Section 334 of the Local Government Act 1974 provides the Council with the authority to provide facilities on a road for the control of traffic or enforcement of traffic laws.

8.3       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, plus facilities for the control of traffic or enforcement of traffic laws. The Council has not delegated its powers with respect to the authority to approve special vehicle lanes.

8.4       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

8.5       There is a legal context, issue or implication relevant to this decision. The original, partially-implemented Transport Network Improvements scheme for Travis Road and Bower Avenue has already been approved by the Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board on 19 March 2018 and by the Council on 22 November 2018. If the staff recommendations in section 2 of this report are adopted and approved by the Community Board, no further resolutions are necessary to enable the installation of cycle lanes on the section of Travis Road between Bower Avenue and Wattle Drive.

8.6       This specific report has not been reviewed and approved by the Legal Services Unit however the report has been written using a general approach previously approved of by the Legal Services Unit, and the recommendations are consistent with the policy and legislative framework outlined in sections 8.1 to 8.4.

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

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

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

3.4       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

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

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

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

4.   Applicant Te Kaitono 1 – Lauren Sheere

4.1       Age: 15.

4.2       School: Marian College.

4.3       Suburb: Parklands.

4.4       Event seeking support for: The FIG 51st Nissen Cup in Switzerland and the Coimbra Gym Fest in Portugal from 21 June to 2 July 2022.

4.5       This is the second time that the applicant has applied for funding. The applicant received funding from the Board's 2018-19 Youth Development Fund ($500 to attend the 2019 Australian Gymnastics Championship).

4.6       Lauren is a 15 year old student who resides in the Waitai Coastal Burwood Community Board Area.

4.7       The Juniors Tour has been debated within Gymnastics NZ (GNZ) in terms of being able to find an option to send athletes under the current GNZ junior tour restrictions due to Covid. A travel exemption for four athletes has been allowed and GNZ has endorsed the tour as a joint Club tour (between Olympia Gymnastics Chch and Icon trampoline in Auckland) while still representing NZ to comply with the age travel restrictions in place until the end of June.

4.8       Lauren has been trampolining for nearly ten years at Olympia Gymnastics. She has been competing in the international division since she was 11 years old.

4.9       In addition to trampolining and school, Lauren is an active member in the student volunteer army.

4.11    Lauren has represented New Zealand at the Australian Nationals in 2018 and 2019. She qualified for the 2020 Indo Pacific Trampoline Championships and the 2021 World Age Group Championships, but was unable to attend due to Covid travel restrictions.

4.12    The applicant received confirmation that the junior team were able to travel to the two competitions in April 2022, therefore opportunities for fundraising have been limited. The applicant is actively seeking corporate sponsorship and will also be doing second-hand gear sales. A parent of Lauren is attending as a Chaperone as well as the Olympia Gymnastics Coach, their costs to attend are not included in the breakdown below.

Strategic Alignment

Support the community-led action plan for Brooklands

The first of the evening hui’s was held on 4 May 2022 at Kāinga Community Hall and was attended by 18 residents from the Brooklands suburb. Participants had the opportunity to view the ideas and suggestions for the action plan that have been collated so far through the conversations held to date at the Tuesday morning hui’s at the Styx River boat ramp.

 

An issue that has been raised consistently is the frequency of occurrences of car racing, burn-outs and anti-social behaviour which is causing the community a lot of distress and anxiety. Having had little success in resolving the issues as a community, two residents made a public forum presentation to the Waitai Community Board on 16 May 2022 on behalf of the Brooklands community to ask for assistance in finding some solutions.

 

To address this staff have initiated a project and started to investigate a range of measures which could be implemented. So far these have included acting on a suggestion from the community that a second set of prohibition signs either side of the start of the suburb are installed, as reminder of the by-law in place which restrict the entry of non-residents to Brooklands during evenings from Thursday to Monday.

 

The Residential Red Zone team have also organised for Brooklands to be included in the pulse of after-hours patrols through red zone areas that P4G have been contracted to undertake for the next 3 to 6 months, which will hopefully have a positive effect on deterring some of the anti-social behaviour they are experiencing.

 

The project is a collaboration between the Waitai Community Governance team, Traffic Operations, Residential Red Zone teams, the local policing team and the Brooklands community to try and find solutions to the issues.

·     Te Waka Aroha opening

Te Waka Aroha St Faiths Church on Shaw Avenue in New Brighton welcomed back the community at its opening event on Saturday 28 May. The iconic building was damaged in the 2010-2011 earthquakes and required extensive repair work for the roof and stonework, an electrical upgrade and restoration work on the windows. Unfortunately the insurance pay-out did not cover all of the work and some of the unforeseen costs and so the community rallied and have been fundraising ever since to help restore the historic church.  

The much loved landmark is so much more than just a place of worship. It serves as a community hub, where local people are welcomed and accepted with is lounge open to the public Monday to Friday for locals to drop-in. Te Waka Aroha Community Project host coffee mornings, a weekly community luncheon, weekly fruit and vegetable cooperative, exercise groups, music, arts and craft groups and foot clinic. The group also host a community fridge and pantry where food is provided every day of the week and an Artisan shed on site from which pottery classes are available. ReNew Brighton and Brighton Observatory of Environment and Economics we’re two groups who quickly jumped at the chance to get involved and have now added to the vibrant community of groups who use the facility as their as their base.

The opening was an opportunity to congratulate and thank all those who helped realise the vision for St Faith’s restoration. Around eighty people went along to join the celebrations including local resident Margret Templeton who’s grandmother had attended the church many years before, who had the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially open the facility.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

·     Donald's Cabin Opening

New Brighton Community Gardens held the official opening of Donald's Cabin on Wednesday 18 May with a beautiful ceremony late afternoon. The ceremony kicked off with speeches from Lin and Catherine from the Gardens, Adam Parker from the DIA and then Donald himself who gave his heartfelt speech in sign language which was translated for his audience by one of his carers.

Deaf and blind artist Donald Gibson has relocated to the gardens when his old studio at New Brighton School was set to be demolished. Wanting to stay in the area, staff at the Gardens saw this as a really good fit in their already creative space and in an overwhelming response, the community soon rallied together to secure funding and build Donald a kitset cabin over a number of weekends.

The ceremony was a beautiful event celebrating and showcasing the garden, home-grown and home-made kai, art, the volunteer's and most of all community. The event highlighted just what can be achieved when tangata come together to drive a project and make it happen.


Donald is now back to work in his new purpose built cabin on the community garden site and can continue to inspire and teach people about art and diversity through his work.

·    Brooklands Community Planting Day

Pūharakekenui Styx Living Laboratory Trust held a planting day on Saturday 28 May along the river bank running from the junction of Earlham Street and Lower Styx Road. Along with staff from the Trust, a handful of volunteers from Brooklands and Spencerville went along to help dig in around 500 native plants along the upper banks across four former residential sections down the river.  

The planting day was part the Immediate Steps Project, funded by Environment Canterbury and is the Pūharakekenui’s first project in the lower part of the Styx River. The project focuses on removing exotic weeds, controlling willow and under-planting with native eco-sourced plants along the riparian margins in Earlham Street which, once established, will provide an interactive link between the surrounding land and the aquatic system.

The planting day was the first of many planned for the Lower Styx which will help improve water quality and enhance aquatic life by filtering out sediment and nutrients from roads and farmland before they enter the waterways and help to prevent erosion of the banks. The project aims to see native vegetation dominating again across planted areas, increased bird, fish, invertebrate and lizard species abundance, reduced or eliminated presence of targeted weed species and improved condition, extent and density of mahinga kai species at the project site by 2050.

The morning was rounded off with a community BBQ provided by the Residential Red Zone and Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Governance teams, partnering up to provide the volunteers with a well-earned break after all that planting, a chance to enjoy some kai and kōreroero with staff about the project.

3.4.1   Aranui Future Streets Insights Report

Following the public forum presentation made by Yani Johanson to the Waitai Coastal-Burwood Community Board on 11 April 2022, Council Officers have looked into the requests made which are in italics below. Please see below the Officer’s recommendation on proposed next steps relating to the Aranui Future Streets Insights Report.

•That the Community Board amend its Community Plan to include reference to the Future Streets Aranui insights reports and include an action to commit to its next steps as a priority.

Due to the close proximity to the end of the term, amending the Community Board Plan would not be recommended and any changes/suggestions should be tabled when the new Board has had an opportunity to discuss their Community Board Plan. Further staff investigations identified that there has not been a push or drive from the community regarding this project.

•That the Community Board consider in its submission to the Council’s draft annual plan making reference to resources and support to continue the next steps of the Future Streets Aranui insights report.

The Community Board have already lodged their submission to the Council’s Draft Annual Plan 2022-23 prior to this public forum presentation, therefore this request could not be actioned.
