4.2       Cashmere Technical Football Club

Caroline Mason and  Lisa Young, representatives of Cashmere Technical Football Club, spoke about the challenges the club faces in regards to ground availability.

Ms Mason noted that Cashmere Technical Football Club is the result of the merger of two clubs. The club offers a range of playing options for  four to six year olds through to those over 50and has approximately 1600 playing members. 

Ms Mason noted that the numbers of participants creates a demand for playing space for training.  Training grounds with lights in the winter months are at a premium and the extent of access to these limits training opportunities.

The club suggested some solutions to the limited access to grounds could  include looking at how grounds are currently allocated and used, how football could work in with other sporting codes and the potential for additional grounds with lights.  Ms Mason noted that there is a lack of green space within the club's catchment area and advised that the club has a long term vision of an artificial surface football pitch in the area.

Correspondence from Mainland Football that outlines the work the organisation is doing with the Council on the need for sport grounds, including for a network of artificial surfaces around the city was tabled.

After questions from members, the Board thanked  Ms Mason and  Ms Young for their presentation

Part B

The Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board agreed to:

1.     request staff provide advice on the network plan for sports ground availability

2.     request staff to discuss with Cashmere Technical Football Club options for potential sites for sports ground with artificial turf and lights.

4.3       South Library Rebuild - Community Engagement Opportunities

Finn Jackson, resident, spoke about potential opportunities to engage with the community regarding the South Library rebuild project in order to inform the affected community.

Mr Jackson expressed disappointment at the level of information regarding the project and the potential building closure.  He suggested that the Board host a livestreamed public briefing  to provide information to the wider community

Following questions from Board members, the Board thanked Mr Jackson for his presentation.

Part B

That the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board agreed to:

1.          Request staff to investigate community engagement opportunities to inform and involve  the affected community in the South Library project.

2.          Request staff to investigate options for temporary location(s) to maintain current library and service functions to provide continuity for the community within South Christchurch while the South Library rebuild is underway.

 

 

5.   Deputations by Appointment Ngā Huinga Whakaritenga

Part B

5.1

Traffic Issues at Addington Te Kura Taumata

Jo Robertson spoke on behalf of Addington Te Kura Taumata Board of Trustees regarding  Correspondence from Addington Te Kura Taumata school about drop off points.

Ms Robertson advised that the school currently has three access points into the school and issues regarding parking and safety with cars.

Ms Robertson presented a proposed plan to make the Simeon Street entrance the school's main entrance by making changes to the driveway and gates.  Ms Robertson asked if the Council would consider working with the school to find solutions to the problems with the entrance through Addington Park. She suggested there  could be angled parking alongside the park and signage to the side of the driveway.  She noted that the school currently does not have a main entrance which causes confusion for school visitors.

Ms Robertson also requested assistance from Council to add a 'drop off loop' at the Somerset Crescent entrance. 

After questions from members, the Board thanked Ms Robertson for her deputation.

1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board to consider the consultation feedback and views on the proposed speed limit changes for the Slow Speed Neighbourhood in Opawa, which included Hunter Terrace in Beckenham, and to make a recommendation to the Council.

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 change the speed limits from 50 kilometre per hour to 40 and 30 kilometres per hour, in accordance with Attachment A. 

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board recommends that the Council:

1.        Approves, pursuant to Part 4 Clause 27 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 and Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022, that the speed limits on the following roads be revoked and set generally as identified in Attachment A to the staff report and listed below in clauses 1a-1d (including resultant changes made to the Christchurch City Council Register of Speed Limits and associated Speed Limit Maps).

a.        Revoke the existing permanent speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour on Hunter Terrace (entire length).

b.        Approve that the permanent speed limit on Hunter Terrace (entire length) be set at 30 kilometres per hour.

c.        Revoke the existing permanent speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour on Malcolm Avenue commencing at its intersection with Colombo Street and extending in an easterly direction to its intersection with Waimea Terrace.

d.        Approve that the permanent speed limit on Malcolm Avenue commencing at its intersection with Colombo Street and extending in an easterly direction to its intersection with Waimea Terrace be set at 40 kilometres per hour.

2.        Approve that these resolutions take effect when the signage that evidence the restrictions described in the staff report are in place (or removed in the case of revocations).

3.        Authorise staff to make any typographical changes or to correct minor errors or omissions in the above descriptions of the roads to which the speed limits apply (being changes that do not affect the materiality of the resolutions).

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1       The preferred option is to change the speed limits as outlined in the staff recommendations in this report for the following reasons:

3.1.1   Traffic speed data indicates that most road users in this area already recognise that the currently posted speed limit is not safe and appropriate for this area, and are travelling below this limit.

3.1.2   Reduces the likelihood and severity of crashes and improves safety on local roads.

3.1.3   Aligns with the overall vision of the Ministry of Transport/Te Manatū Waka New Zealand Road Safety Strategy - Road to Zero 2020-2030.

3.2       Achieves safe and appropriate speeds that reflect the road function, design, safety, and use for safer use by all. Local neighbourhood roads are low volume and low speed roads and are where we would see more of our vulnerable road users such as school children, cyclists and pedestrians on the road and footpaths.

3.3       Alongside safety, the cost and community support of speed reductions are critical in the success of projects. These factors provide the reasoning for prioritising Hunter Terrace, as part of the Opawa Slow Speed Neighbourhood, for a speed review and include:

There are high numbers of pedestrians and cyclists and a market on Sundays.· This area is a well-defined slow street, and the existing infrastructure supports a lower speed limit without the need for significant infrastructure.

·      There is known support for a reduced speed limit in this area through requests from local residents to CCC and through Community Board requests.

3.4       The Council determined through the Long Term Plan (LTP) to implement at least five slow speed neighbourhoods per year over the next three years.  The Opawa Slow Speed Neighbourhood is identified as one of the five neighbourhoods.

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

Maintain the status quo

4.1       Maintain the status quo – Retain the existing speed limits.

4.2       The advantages of this option include:

4.2.1   There are no identified benefits to road safety or consistency of speed limits from retaining the existing speed limits.

4.2.2   No further costs are incurred for providing or modifying speed limit signs.

4.3       The disadvantages of the option include:

4.3.1   Does not align with the objectives of the Waka Kotahi Speed Management Guide 2016.

4.3.2   Does not align with the overall vision of Road Safety Strategy- Road to Zero 2020-2030.

4.3.3   Does not align the posted speed limits with the operating speeds, the safe and appropriate speeds, and does not help improve the credibility and consistency across the network.

4.3.4   Does not deliver one of the five slow speed neighbourhoods this financial year as identified in the Long Term Plan.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

5.1       Improving safety on local roads in Christchurch is a priority for Council, and is also a national priority under the principles and guidance of the Road to Zero - New Zealand’s road safety strategy for 2020-2030. Road to Zero sets an initial target to reduce deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand’s roads, streets, cycleways, and footpaths by 40 percent over the next 10 years. There are several focus areas being looked at nationally to achieve this, but where a significant difference can be made is through having safe and appropriate speeds on Christchurch’s roads.

5.2       It is proposed to reduce the speed limit from 50 kilometres per hour to 30 kilometres per hour and 40 kilometres per hour on selected streets in Opawa, which included Hunter Terrace.

5.3       The Council traffic and speed count data indicates that the majority of road users already recognise that the currently posted speed limit is not safe and appropriate for this area, and are travelling below this limit. Implementing a lower speed limit will help to reinforce this safer driving behaviour, and help those unfamiliar with the area to understand the safe and appropriate speed. Research suggests that, in some environments, changing speed limit signage alone (without complimentary engineering treatments) may result in a 2 to 3 kilometres per hour reduction in operating speeds. Installation of new speed limit signage in this area may also therefore result in a slight reduction in operating speeds.

5.4       Neighbourhoods are areas where we can make the most difference with slower speeds to improve safety for vulnerable road users, because everyone should get where they’re going safely whether they’re walking, cycling, driving, motorcycling, or using public transport.

5.5       The proposed slower speeds will also assist in improving pedestrian connectivity through the neighbourhood by making it safer for people to cross to get where they are going.

5.6       The slow neighbourhood speed limit has been determined based on several speed management principles. The fundamental principle is that speed affects the severity of all crashes. Even when speed doesn’t cause the crash, it’s what will most likely determine whether anyone is killed, injured, or walks away unharmed from that crash.

5.7       Hunter Terrace (by South Library) has been included in this speed review for a reduction to 30km/h to align with community requests and due to the relocation of the Opawa Market. 30km/h is suitable for narrow roads and areas where greater amounts of pedestrians are expected.

5.8       Approval is required by the Council.  If approved, the recommendations will be implemented within the next financial year.

Community Views and Preferences

5.9       Residents were encouraged to have their say via the online submission from 8 April to 3 May 2022.  The summary of these submissions is available in Attachment B.

5.10     The consultation was advertised through a letter box flyer, Newsline story, and social media posts on community Facebook pages, on-site signage and the online Have Your Say portal.

5.11     The Council received 139 submissions.

5.12     Broadly, 90% of submitters are in support of the slow speeds neighbourhood changes and 9% oppose. The analysis of all submissions is available in Attachment C.

5.13     In terms of the relevant streets to this Community Board, two submitters specifically mention the proposed change to Hunter Terrace, with both wanting the 30km/h limit to be extended until the end of the terrace.

5.14     Following a review of the submissions it is proposed to extend the 30 kilometres per hour to cover the remainder of Hunter Terrace to Malcolm Avenue.  A 40 kilometres per hour section will be added on Malcolm Avenue from Colombo Street to the current start of the existing 40 kilometres per hour section at Waimea Terrace.

6.   Policy Framework Implications Ngā Hīraunga ā- Kaupapa here

Strategic Alignment Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

6.1       The New Zealand Road Safety Strategy - Road to Zero: sets a target to reduce death and serious injuries on New Zealand roads by 40 percent over the next 10 years. There are five key focus areas: infrastructure improvements and speed management, vehicle safety, work related road safety, road user choices, and system management.

6.2       Waka Kotahi’s Speed Management Guide 2016: setting safe and appropriate speeds, consistency and credibility of speed limits.

6.3       Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2022: requires that road controlling authorities must set speed limits that are safe and appropriate, and encourages a consistent approach to speed management throughout New Zealand.

6.4       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.

6.5       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2021 - 2031):

6.5.1   Activity: Transport

·      Level of Service: 10.0.6.1 Reduce the number of death and serious injury crashes on the local road network  - ≤ 105 crashes

·      Level of Service: 10.5.1 Limit deaths and serious injury crashes per capita for cyclists and pedestrians - ≤ 12 crashes per 100,000 residents.

·      Level of Service: 16.0.10 Maintain the perception that Christchurch is a walking friendly city - ≥85% resident satisfaction.

·      Level of Service: 10.0.2 Increase the share of non-car modes in daily trips - ≥17% of trips undertaken by non-car modes.

·      Level of Service: 10.5.2 Improve the perception that Christchurch is a cycling friendly city) - ≥65% resident satisfaction.

·      Level of Service: 10.5.3 More people are choosing to travel by cycling - ≥12,000 average daily cyclist detections.

·      Level of Service: 10.0.41 Reduce emissions and greenhouse gases related to transport - ≤1.10 million tonnes of CO2 equivalents.

6.5.2   Capital Programme

·      $250,000 capital expenditure per year for three years to implement at least five slow speed neighbourhoods a year.

Impact on Mana Whenua Ngā Whai Take Mana Whenua

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

Climate Change Impact Considerations Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Āhuarangi

6.8       This proposal includes measures to encourage walking/cycling/public transport and therefore will result in positive changes to reduce carbon emissions and the effects of Climate Change.

6.9       This proposal includes measures to slow vehicle speeds and improve road safety.  This could encourage people to use alternative modes to the private vehicle which will result in positive changes to reduce carbon emissions and the effects of Climate Change.

Accessibility Considerations Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Hunga Hauā

6.10     This proposal will result in vehicles travelling at reduced speeds, which will provide a safer and more accessible environment for all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists.

Reference / Te Tohutoro:

22/515316

Report of / Te Pou Matua:

Toni Dakers, Traffic Engineer, toni.dakers@ccc.govt.nz

General Manager / Pouwhakarae:

Jane Davis, General Manager Infrastructure, Planning & Regulatory Services, jane.davis@ccc.govt.nz

 

 

1.   Purpose of the Report Te Pūtake Pūrongo

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Waihoro / Spreydon Cashmere Community Board to consider approval of proposed improvements to the existing pedestrian refuge islands at the Barrington Street / Cashmere Road / Purau Terrace roundabout. 

1.2       This report has been written in response to ongoing requests from the community for pedestrian crossing improvements in this area and staff assessments of deficiencies with the existing infrastructure.

1.3       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 recommend decision.

1.4       The recommended options is to install a new pedestrian refuge island on the Barrington Street approach as well as improve the existing refuge crossing points on Cashmere Road, in accordance with Attachment A.

 

2.   Officer Recommendations Ngā Tūtohu

That the Waihoro Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.        Approves the design for the approaches to the Barrington Street / Cashmere Road / Purau Terrace roundabout as shown on Attachment A  (Cashmere Barrington Intersection Improvements, TG136566, 16/05/2022), including a new refuge island on Barrington Street and amendments to the existing crossing points on Cashmere Road.

 

3.   Reason for Report Recommendations Ngā Take mō te Whakatau

3.1       There are two main aspects to the proposal; installing a new larger refuge/splitter island on the Barrington Street approach to the roundabout and improving the existing crossing points on the two Cashmere Road approaches to the roundabout.

3.2       The existing island on Barrington Street is only 1.1 metres wide. This is insufficient to accommodate pedestrians waiting to cross, particularly if they are waiting with a pram / bike etc. It is also well below the minimum acceptable width of 1.8 metres for a refuge island based on current standards and best practise. The proposal includes increasing the size of this island to the maximum possible while still ensuring larger vehicles can track around the roundabout without mounting the kerb.

3.3       No changes are proposed to the physical width of the existing islands on Cashmere Road, however the width of the island cut throughs will be increased to provide more space for pedestrians to wait. This area will be flush with the road surface to allow for pedestrian hand rails and tactile pavers to be installed.

3.4       Pedestrian hand rails and tactile pavers will be installed on all three islands.

 

4.   Alternative Options Considered Ētahi atu Kōwhiringa

4.1       Implementing major works at this intersection, such as raised tables and/or changing the intersection control (installing traffic signals etc.) are outside of the scope and available budget for this project.

4.2       Funding for full intersections upgrades is currently prioritised to undertake improvements at the highest risk intersections in the City, evaluated using the nationally recognised KiwiRAP assessment criteria. The intersection of Barrington Street / Cashmere Road / Purau Terrace is not identified as a high risk site within this criteria. It is therefore not a priority for funding compared to other sites in the City.

4.3       The changes that are proposed are intended to be lower cost improvements targeted to ensure the existing crossing points are consistent with current standards with respect to width/depth and allow the installation of tactile pavers and hand rails.

4.4       Furthermore, Cashmere Road has been identified within the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Futures Programme for Bus priority improvements as a core route for bus priority. This is in the very early stages however funding has been allocated in Council’s draft Annual Plan for a project for Cashmere Road to develop a preferred scheme option. We therefore do not support allocating funding to implement options that may conflict with this possible future work.

5.   Detail Te Whakamahuki

5.1       Consultation was open between 31 March and 13 April 2022. An email was sent to 20 key stakeholders detailing the project.

5.2       Themes

5.2.1   Reconsideration of an earlier proposal to install a traffic island outside 31 Cashmere Road to address the poor connectivity in this location, particularly for pedestrians travelling on the footpath on the east side of Cashmere Road

As per point 4.4 above, there are future projects being investigated on Cashmere Road, we therefore we don’t support installing and investing in infrastructure that may not be compatible with future works.

5.2.2   Zebra crossings on the roundabout approaches and/or at alternative locations further away. Including ancillary signage such as give way to pedestrians.

While we understand that the intention of these requests is to give pedestrians priority, installing zebra crossings on the roundabout approaches is not considered safe.

The main reason for this is that the safety of Zebra crossings relies on drivers seeing and stopping for pedestrians. Pedestrians stepping out with the expectation drivers will stop puts them at risk of serious injury. For this reason, installing a new Zebra crossing is not supported in a 50km/h environment unless installed on a raised table to significantly reduce vehicle speeds.

5.2.3   Reducing the speed limit through this area to 40km/h.

Council staff are currently working on developing a prioritisation tool for the roll out of Safe Speed neighbourhoods throughout the City. These roads will therefore be considered as part of a wider area review.

5.2.4   Trim the vegetation in the central island

This has been forwarded onto our Landscape Maintenance Team.

5.3       A summary of the submissions received is attached as Attachment B to this report.

5.4       The decision affects the following wards/Community Board areas:

5.4.1   Cashmere Ward

5.4.2   Waihoro Spreydon Cashmere Community Board

6.   Policy Framework Implications Ngā Hīraunga ā- Kaupapa here

Strategic Alignment Te Rautaki Tīaroaro

6.1       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       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

6.2.1   Activity: Transport

·      Level of Service: 10.5.42 Increase the infrastructure provision for active and public modes - ≥ 570 kilometres (total combined length)

Policy Consistency Te Whai Kaupapa here

6.3       The decision is consistent with 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.

6.5       The effects on Mana Whenua are expected to be insignificant as the proposal involves minor work within the existing carriageway.

Climate Change Impact Considerations Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Āhuarangi

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

Accessibility Considerations Ngā Whai Whakaaro mā te Hunga Hauā

6.7       The proposal is principally intended to improve accessibility for pedestrians by providing a safer location to wait when crossing Cashmere Road and Barrington Street at the roundabout.

7.   Resource Implications Ngā Hīraunga Rauemi

Capex/Opex / Ngā Utu Whakahaere

7.1       Cost to Implement –approximately $55K for construction including traffic management and materials.

7.2       Maintenance/Ongoing costs – To be covered under the area maintenance contract, the effects will be minimal to the overall asset.

7.3       Funding Source – Traffic Operations ‘School Safety’ budget.

Other Legal Implications / Ētahi atu Hīraunga-ā-Ture

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

8.4       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 by the Legal Services Unit, and the recommendations are consistent with the policy and legislative framework outlined in sections 8.1-8.2.

9.   Risk Management Implications Ngā Hīraunga Tūraru

It is worth noting that the water table is still quite high for this cemetery due to low ground level, so if it is a wet winter there may be surface flooding at the edges of the path." Staff have advised that the installation of the new footpath is about to commence.

4.5       Centaurus/Wilsons/Albert Terrace Intersection Project – At its 17 November 2021 meeting, the Board heard from St Martins School with suggestions about traffic safety improvements, particularly at the Centaurus/Wilsons/Albert Terrace intersection.  An updated plan has been developed and was put out for public consultation between 13 May 2022 and 3 June 2022.
