Department: Transport and Finance

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report recommends the adoption of the 10 year plan 2018-28 amendment.

2          Audit New Zealand is currently auditing the 10 year plan 2018-28 amendment and will provide the Council with an Independent Auditor’s report at the meeting.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Approves the 10 year plan 2018-28 amendment.

b)     Receives the ‘Independent auditor’s report on Dunedin City Council’s 2018-28 Long-Term Plan amendment’ from Audit New Zealand.

c)     Adopts the 10 year plan 2018-28 amendment.

d)     Authorises the Chief Executive to make any minor editorial changes resulting from quality checks prior to the final printing of the 10 year plan 2018-28 amendment.

 

BACKGROUND

3          Council consulted on a proposed amendment to the 10 year plan 2018-28 to change the community services targeted rate (CSTR) from $240.50 to $100.00. The proposed amendment was consulted on concurrently with the draft 2020/21 budgets from 12 March 2020 to 24 April 2020.

4          The Council met in May 2020 to hear submissions, deliberate and make final decisions regarding submissions and community feedback received on the proposed amendment. The Council approved the amendment which sets the CSTR for 2020/21 at $100.00.

5          As specified in the Revenue and Financing Policy, the CSTR funds the Botanic Garden and part of the Parks and Reserves activity. 

DISCUSSION

6          The change to the CSTR requires amendments to four pages of the 10 year plan 2018-28. The four pages are summarised in the table below.

Adoption of the Annual Plan 2020/21

Department: Corporate Policy, Finance and Transport

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report recommends the adoption of the Annual Plan 2020/21 and approval of matters associated with the Annual Plan 2020/21.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Notes the matters in section 100(2) of the Local Government Act 2002 being:

i)          the estimated expenses of maintaining the predicted levels of service, capacity and assets set out in the 10 year plan 2018-28;

ii)         the projected revenue available to fund the estimated expenses;

iii)        the equitable allocation of responsibility for funding the provision and maintenance of assets and facilities throughout their useful life; and

iv)       Council’s Revenue and Financing Policy, Treasury Risk Management Policy, and Development Contributions Policy.

b)     Agrees that, having had regards to the matters in paragraph (a) above, it is financially prudent for Council to set for the 2020/21 financial year, projected operating revenues at a level that will not meet projected operating expenses.

c)     Notes in accordance with section 80 of the Local Government Act 2002 that:

i)          The decision to borrow to fund the anticipated decreases in revenue and mothballing costs for Dunedin Railways Limited is inconsistent with Council’s Revenue and Financing Policy; and

ii)         The inconsistency arises from the impacts of COVID-19; and

iii)        The Revenue and Financing Policy will be reviewed as part of the development of the 10 year plan 2021-31.

d)     Adopts the Annual Plan 2020/21.

e)     Authorises the Chief Executive to make any minor editorial changes resulting from quality checks prior to the final printing of the Annual Plan 2020/21 document.

f)     Authorises the Chief Executive to drawdown debt up to total debt of $310 million in the 2020/21 year.

 

BACKGROUND

2          The Local Government Act 2002 (LGA) requires local authorities to prepare and adopt an Annual Plan for each financial year. The purpose of an annual plan is to provide the budget and funding impact statement for the year concerned and to identify any variation from the financial statements and funding impact statement included in the 10 year plan 2018-28 for that year. 

3          Feedback from the community on the draft 2020/21 budget was sought from 12 March 2020 to 24 April 2020.  The Council met in May 2020 to hear submissions, deliberate and make final decisions regarding submissions and community feedback on the draft 2020/21 budget.

DISCUSSION

4          The final Annual Plan 2020/21 document has been prepared based on the supporting documents utilised during the engagement process and the budget updates reported to the Council deliberations meeting. 

5          The substantive changes reflect the resolutions made by the Council during deliberations and decision making in May 2020. The financial statements are extrapolated from the 2019/20 Annual Report and a forecast year end position at 30 June 2020.

6          The Annual Plan 2020/21 sets projected operating revenues at a level that will not meet projected operating expenses. Although councils should have a balanced budget under section 100(1) of the LGA, Council may set an unbalanced budget under section 100(2) of the LGA, where Council considers that it is financially prudent to do so. 

7          The anticipated shortfall in 2020/21 operating revenue is expected to recover in future years and the Dunedin Railway Limited mothballing costs are a one-off expense.  Borrowing for these matters avoids a significant one-off impact on current ratepayers. This provides a pragmatic balance between managing the pressures on current ratepayers and ensuring the Council remains financially sustainable into the future, whereby the actions of today do not impact unfairly on ratepayers in the future.

8          Funding the anticipated decreases in revenue and mothballing costs with debt is inconsistent with the Council’s Revenue and Financing Policy (RFP), which provides that debt can only be used to fund capital expenditure and not operating expenditure. Section 80 of the LGA allows Council to make a decision that is inconsistent with a Council policy if the Council identifies the inconsistency, the reasons for the inconsistency, and any intention to amend the policy.  The reason for borrowing to fund the anticipated decreases in revenue and mothballing costs is due to the impacts of COVID-19. The RFP will be reviewed as part of the development of the 10 year plan 2021-31, and Council may consider amending the RFP to provide for such circumstances. 

9          This additional borrowing is within the Council’s debt limit of $350 million, and rates income is consistent with the rate limits provided for in the 10 year plan. 

10        The adopted Annual Plan 2020/21 will require a full editorial quality check. This check will be completed within the statutory timeframes. Any required editorial changes can be achieved through delegating authority to approve editorial changes to the Chief Executive.

11        Debt is forecast to increase to $308.873 million in the 2020/21 year. Authority is sought to provide the Chief Executive with the appropriate delegation to drawdown debt up to a maximum of $310 million.

OPTIONS

12        The Council is legislatively required to adopt the Annual Plan 2020/21 by 1 July 2020, therefore there are no options applicable to this report.

NEXT STEPS

13        Once adopted the Annual Plan 2020/21 will be subject to final quality checks, graphic designed and printed for public distribution in hard copy and on the Council’s website.

14        Information on the Annual Plan 2020/21 and the outcome of Council decision making will be included in FYI and the Star in mid-July 2020.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          Following the adoption of the 2020/21 Annual Plan, the Council now needs to set the rates as provided for in the Funding Impact Statement for the 2020/21 year.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Sets the following rates under the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 on rating units in the district for the financial year commencing 1 July 2020 and ending on 30 June 2021.

1          General Rate

A general rate set under section 13 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 made on every rating unit, assessed on a differential basis as described below:

·        A rate of 0.2859 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "residential" category.

·        A rate of 0.2717 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "lifestyle" category.

·        A rate of 0.7032 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "commercial" category.

·        A rate of 0.5000 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "residential heritage bed and breakfasts" category.

·        A rate of 0.2288 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "farmland" category.

·        A rate of 0.0609 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on the “stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity” category.

2          Community Services Rate

A targeted rate for community services, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $100.00 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for all rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories.

·        $100.00 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "commercial and stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity" categories.

3          Kerbside Recycling Rate

A targeted rate for kerbside recycling, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $66.30 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories.

·        $66.30 (including GST) per rating unit for rating units in the "commercial" category.

4          Drainage Rates

A targeted rate for drainage, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        $581.00 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for all rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        $290.50 (including GST) per separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit for all rating units in the "residential, residential heritage bed and breakfasts, lifestyle and farmland" categories and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

·        $581.00 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "commercial, residential institutions, schools and stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity" categories and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        $290.50 (including GST) per rating unit for all rating units in the "commercial, residential institutions and schools" categories and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

Rating units which are not "connected" to the scheme and which are not "serviceable" will not be liable for this rate.  Drainage is a combined targeted rate for sewage disposal and stormwater.  Sewage disposal makes up 83.9% of the drainage rate, and stormwater makes up 16.1%.  Non-rateable land will not be liable for the stormwater component of the drainage targeted rate.  Rates demands for the drainage targeted rate for non-rateable land will therefore be charged at 83.9%.

5          Commercial Drainage Rates – Capital Value

A targeted rate for drainage, set under section 16 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002, assessed on a differential basis as follows:

·        A rate of 0.2644 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "commercial and residential institution" category and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.1983 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "school" category and which are "connected" to the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.0992 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on every rating unit in the "school" category and which are "serviceable" by the public sewerage system.

·        A rate of 0.0228 cents in the dollar (including GST) of capital value on the “stadium: 10,000+ seat capacity” category.

This rate shall not apply to properties in Karitane, Middlemarch, Seacliff, Waikouaiti and Warrington.  This rate shall not apply to churches.  Drainage is a combined targeted rate for sewage disposal and stormwater.  Sewage disposal makes up 83.9% of the drainage rate, and stormwater makes up 16.1%.  Non-rateable land will not be liable for the stormwater component of the drainage targeted rate.  Rates demands for the drainage targeted rate for non-rateable land will therefore be charged at 83.9%.

2          Differentials Based on Land Use and Provision or Availability of Service

The Council uses these matters to differentiate the drainage rate and the commercial drainage rate.

The differential categories based on land use are:

·        Serviceable – any rating unit that is not connected to a public sewerage drain but is capable of being connected to the sewerage system (being a property situated within 30 metres of a public drain).

3          Differentials Based on Provision or Availability of Service

The Council uses this matter to differentiate the water rates.

The differential categories based on provision or availability of service are:

·        Connected – any rating unit that is supplied by the water supply system.

·        Serviceable – any rating unit that is not supplied but is capable of being supplied by the water supply system (being a rating unit situated within 100 metres of the nearest water supply).

Minimum Rates

c)     Approves that where the total amount of rates payable in respect of any rating unit is less than $5.00 including GST, the rates payable in respect of the rating unit shall be such amount as the Council determines but not exceeding $5.00 including GST.

Low Value Rating Units

d)     Approves that rating units with a capital value of $6,000 or less will only be charged the general rate.

Land Use Code

e)     Approves that the land use codes attached to this report are adopted as the Council's land use codes for the purpose of the rating method.

Separately Used or Inhabited Part of a Rating Unit

f)     Adopts the following definition of a separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit:

"A separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit includes any portion inhabited or used by the owner/a person other than the owner, and who has the right to use or inhabit that portion by virtue of a tenancy, lease, licence, or other agreement.

This definition includes separately used parts, whether or not actually occupied at any particular time, which are provided by the owner for rental (or other form of occupation) on an occasional or long term basis by someone other than the owner.

For the purpose of this definition, vacant land and vacant premises offered or intended for use or habitation by a person other than the owner and usually used as such are defined as 'used'.

For the avoidance of doubt, a rating unit that has a single use or occupation is treated as having one separately used or inhabited part."

Lump Sum Contributions

g)     Approves that no lump sum contributions will be sought for any targeted rate.

Rating by Instalments

h)     Approves the following schedule of rates to be collected by the Council, payable by four instalments.

The City is divided into four areas based on Valuation Roll Numbers, as set out below:

Penalties

j)     Resolves to charge the following penalties on unpaid rates:

1          A charge of 10% of the unpaid rates instalment will be added to the amount of any instalment remaining unpaid the day after the instalment due date set out above.

2          Where a ratepayer has not paid the first instalment by the due date of that instalment, and has paid the total rates and charges in respect of the rating unit for the 2020/21 rating year by the due date of the second instalment, the 10% additional charge for the first instalment shall be remitted.

3          For amounts levied in any previous financial year and which remain unpaid on 1 October 2020, 10% of that sum shall be charged, including additional charges (in any).

4          For amounts levied in any previous financial year and which remain unpaid on 1 April 2021, 10% of that sum shall be charged, including additional charges (if any).

Assessing and Recovering Rates

k)     Approves that the Chief Executive Officer, General Manager Finance and Commercial, Financial Controller and Rates and Revenue Team Leader be authorised to take all necessary steps to assess and recover the above rates.

 

BACKGROUND

2          The rating method for the 2020/21 year formed part of the supporting documentation made available during the community engagement period of the draft 2020/21 budget.

3          The Council sought feedback from the community on a proposed amendment to the 10 year plan 2018-28 to reduce the community services targeted rate to $100.00 for the 2020/21 financial year.

DISCUSSION

4          The rating method for the 2020/21 year incorporates the following changes:

·        A reduction in the community services targeted rate from $240.50 to $100.00 for the 2020/21 year.

·        The differentiated stadium: 10,000+ capacity rates have been increased for the 2020/21 year by the June 2019 Local Government Cost Index of 2.8%.

Limit on "Fixed" Charging

5          Section 21 of the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 includes a limit on certain rates.  In any one year, the Council may not collect more than 30% of its total rates revenue by way of:

·        Any uniform annual general charge.

·        Any targeted rate that is calculated as a fixed amount per rating unit or separately used or inhabited part of a rating unit (and which is not used solely for water supply or sewage disposal).

6          The Council does not use a uniform annual general charge.  The relevant targeted rates for the 2020/21 year are the kerbside recycling rate, the community services rate and the drainage fixed charge.  These rates equate to 21% of total rates revenue.

OPTIONS

7          The option provided is to set rates in accordance with the Local Government Act 2002 and the Local Government (Rating) Act 2002 in order to provide rates funding in the 2020/21 year in accordance with the 2020/21 budget.

NEXT STEPS

8          The Council can now set and assess the rates described in its Funding Impact Statement.

Central City Advisory Group membership

Department: Transport

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          At the 25 May 2020 Council meeting Council reconstituted the Central City Advisory Group (CCAG) to provide feedback throughout the detailed design and business case stages of the George Street upgrade proposals. 

2          This report provides suggested membership of the CCAG and a draft terms of reference for consideration by Council.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Considers the proposed membership of the Central City Advisory Group.

b)     Approves the terms of reference for the Central City Advisory Group.

 

BACKGROUND

3          During the previous triennium a CCAG was established, but the group ceased at the end of that triennium. 

4          At a Council meeting on 25 May 2020, when considering an update report on the George Street upgrade, Council passed a resolution to reconstitute the CCAG as follows:

Moved (Cr David Benson-Pope/Cr Christine Garey):

That the Council:

 

a)     Notes the reports and other documents on this matter.

b)     Endorses the continuation of the George Street Retail Quarter section of the Central City Plan and

c)     Reconstitutes a Central City Advisory Group to provide feedback throughout the detailed design and business case stages of these proposals.

d)     Request a staff report to the 8 June 2020 Council meeting as to the suggested composition of the Central City Advisory Group and the Terms of Reference.

Division

The Council voted by division:

 

For:                Crs Sophie Barker, David Benson-Pope, Rachel Elder, Christine Garey, Doug Hall, Marie Laufiso, Jim O'Malley, Chris Staynes, Steve Walker and Aaron Hawkins (10).

Against:        Crs Carmen Houlahan, Jules Radich, Lee Vandervis and Andrew Whiley (4).

Abstained:    Nil

 

The division was declared CARRIED by 10 votes to 4

 

Motion carried (CNL/2020/044)

 

5          This report provides a suggested membership and draft terms of reference in response to the resolution of Council.

DISCUSSION

6          The previous CCAG had membership from a range of organisations including the Chamber of Commerce, the University of Otago, NZTA, NZ Police, Ngai Tahu, Otago Regional Council and the Southern Health Partnership.

7          The previous CCAG aimed to provide a spectrum of viewpoints with a focus on coordinating development across the city and to advise on social, cultural, environmental and economic matters relating to the project.

8          As the George Street part of the project has been endorsed to enter into developed and detailed design stages, membership of the reformed CCAG has been focussed on ensuring that the specific interests of George Street are represented by the group rather than the entire Central City Plan.

9          A Terms of Reference is attached to the report and outlines the proposed membership and purpose of the CCAG, and details reporting lines and supporting staff.

OPTIONS

 

10        As this is an administrative report, there are no options.

NEXT STEPS

11        Once Council has confirmed the membership of the CCAG, representatives from the member groups will be identified and the first meeting will be scheduled.

12        The group will report through updates to the Planning and Environment Committee.

Proposed Amendments to the Camping Control Bylaw 2015

Department: Parks and Recreation

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report recommends an amendment to the Camping Control Bylaw 2015. The proposed amendment is described in a Statement of Proposal. The Statement of Proposal, draft amended Bylaw, and a public submission form (attached), require Council approval in order for public consultation on the amendments to begin.

2          Dunedin City Council staff have reviewed the Camping Control Bylaw 2015. The review identified opportunities to improve the management of freedom camping in Dunedin, while retaining the existing Bylaw.

3          The proposed amendment to the Bylaw is the addition of the Thomas Burns Street carpark as a seasonal, unrestricted freedom camping site under Schedule C of the Bylaw. This amendment would permit overnight camping at this site in non-self-contained vehicles seasonally, between the months of November and April each season.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

a)     Approves the Statement of Proposal, draft amended Camping Control Bylaw and public submission form for public consultation.

 

BACKGROUND

4          Findings from a review of the Camping Control Bylaw were presented to Council on 31 January 2020. The review evaluated the effect of an inner-city trial site (Thomas Burns) on redistributing camper numbers at unrestricted DCC sites. 

5          The Thomas Burns Street Trial Site was established to address overloading issues at the Warrington Domain and Ocean View Reserve unrestricted sites. The Trial Site was Dunedin’s most popular freedom camping site during the two-year trial period and camper numbers at the Ocean View Reserve and Warrington Domain decreased by 50% and 27% respectively, despite an increase in total freedom camper numbers. Complaints concerning unrestricted sites reduced by 48% and infringements issued at these sites reduced by 59% during the trial period.

DISCUSSION

6          Thomas Burns Street carpark was trialled as an unrestricted freedom camping site during the 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 freedom camping seasons. During the trial period, the Thomas Burns Street site accommodated 30% of all freedom campers counted during nightly enforcement patrols, accounted for 3% of the tickets that were issued and 6% of the freedom camping complaints staff received.

7          The proposed Bylaw amendment will permit overnight camping within any type of vehicle in the Pay & Display portion of the Thomas Burns Carpark between the months of November and April each year. Parking restrictions will be enforced under the Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2010; all vehicles are currently required to pay for parking between the hours of 8am and 6pm, Monday – Saturday. Certified self-contained vehicles are currently permitted to overnight camp at all Council carparks under Section B of the Bylaw.

8          If consultation is to proceed, staff will meet the requirements of the Special Consultative Procedure (SCP) as described in the Freedom Camping Act 2011 and the Local Government Act 2002. Public consultation will be limited to the proposed amendments; feedback beyond the scope of these amendments will not be addressed during this process.

OPTIONS

Option One – Recommended Option

9          Council approves the Statement of Proposal, draft amended Camping Control Bylaw 2015 and public submission form for the purposes of an SCP which will consult on Option 1, being:

The proposed addition of a new unrestricted camping area at Thomas Burns Street, Dunedin (as shown in the attached Plan) to the Bylaw.

Such SCP to proceed in accordance with section 83 of the Local Government Act 2002 and section 11 of the Freedom Camping Act 2011.

 

10        Appoints [at least three members in order to obtain a quorum] as members of the Regulatory Subcommittee so that the subcommittee may:

·        Determine the form and extent of public consultation;

·        Adopt the statement of proposal and public notice for this matter;

·        Conduct any hearings that may be necessary; and

·        Make a recommendation to Council.

Advantages

·        Staff can begin the SCP allowing the public to provide feedback on the proposed amendments.

Disadvantages

·        No disadvantages identified

Option Two – Status Quo

11        Council rejects the Statement of Proposal, draft amended Camping Control Bylaw and public submission form.

Advantages

·        No advantages identified.

Disadvantages

·        The Thomas Burns Street carpark will cease functioning as an overnight camping site for non-self-contained vehicles during future camping seasons.

·        The volume of freedom campers using the unrestricted sites at Warrington Domain and Ocean View Reserve will increase and likely exceed capacity.

NEXT STEPS

12        With Council approval, staff will follow the SCP as described in the Freedom Camping Act 2011 and the Local Government Act 2002. The Statement of Proposal and draft amended Bylaw will be put forward for public consultation. Members of the public may provide feedback on proposed amendments via the public submission form or in person at a submissions hearing. Parks and Recreation Services will work closely with the Corporate Policy and Communications departments during this process.

13        An analysis of public submissions will be provided to the Bylaw Subcommittee in a findings report.

Proposed traffic and parking restriction changes - March 2020

Department: Transport

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1          This report seeks approval of minor changes and clarifications to parking restrictions.

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Council:

 

a)         Approves the recommended changes to parking restrictions that are shown in the March 2020 update of the Dunedin City Council's traffic and parking restrictions database, https://tinyurl.com/ParkingMarch2020.

b)        Notes that all parking controls previously approved by Council and not shown as a change on the March 2020 traffic and parking restrictions database remain unchanged.

 

BACKGROUND

2          Traffic and parking restrictions are made under the Traffic and Parking Bylaw. Traffic and parking controls contribute to the objectives of the Dunedin Integrated Transport Strategy 2013, particularly by supporting the achievement of a safe, efficient and accessible transport network for all modes. The Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004 establishes rules under which traffic operates on roads to support consistent and predictable responses by road users in New Zealand.

3          Council is also moving towards consistency and simplicity in the parking control system. This should make parking easier for people to use and understand and be more efficient to enforce.

4          Council maintains a GIS map database of traffic and parking restrictions (the database) which reflects all on-street parking restrictions that are approved and implemented with markings and/or signs. It is proposed as part of this report that off-street parking restrictions are included in the database.

DISCUSSION

5          The Council receives a range of unsolicited requests to change parking restrictions from individuals and businesses. Staff investigate and review the requests across a range of factors including safety concerns, commuters, commercial users, the road width and topography, traffic flow, neighbouring on-street parking spaces, visibility concerns and crash statistics. If a proposed change is supported, consultation is undertaken by the applicant with residents, businesses and property owners in the area to demonstrate support for the requested change.

6          Recommended changes and clarifications to parking restrictions are shown in the database at https://tinyurl.com/ParkingMarch2020 and Attachment A. The GIS layer includes a new bookmark feature which links the numbered item in the attachment tables for the location on the GIS layer.

7          The recommended minor parking restriction changes detailed in TPC-16 include:

a)         Parking changes to improve safety, efficiency or access, where appropriate engagement has been carried out with affected parties.

b)        Consequential parking changes arising from other projects where consultation has been carried out with affected parties, and in some cases are already marked and signed (eg. Railway Station pedestrian mall).

c)         Changes to improve the operation of the bus network and changes to residents only parking.

8          Clarifications of parking restrictions and correction of database are detailed in TPC-17 and do not change current parking restrictions and include:

a)         Changes to markings or signs intended to clarify parking controls which are already in place. Changes may make existing markings or signs clearer or reinforce existing rules (for example installation of broken yellow lines to clarify that no vehicles may stop within one metre of a driveway under Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004). These clarifications are considered necessary for access or safety and are an exception to Council’s general approach not to mark anything that is currently enforceable under existing rules. 

b)        Corrections to the database have been made to accurately reflect the parking restrictions which are on the ground.

c)         Inclusion of the DCC paid off-street carpark spaces in the database for completeness.

9          Changes to parking restrictions as a result of the school safety improvement programme are detailed in TPC-18. The consequential parking changes were consulted with the residents as part of the school safety improvement programme.

OPTIONS

Option one – Approve the proposed changes to the traffic and parking controls database

10        The recommended minor changes to parking restrictions would be implemented.

Advantages

·        Improves safety, efficiency and access of the transport network by:

i)          Providing appropriately located bus stops to enable bus services, and changing parking to enable buses to safely enter and exit bus stops;

ii)         Providing appropriate short stay parking to provide for surrounding land uses; and

iii)        Improving safety and enabling property access by prohibiting obstructive parking, making existing parking controls clearer, and providing for access to new driveways.

·        May encourage people to use public transport, through enabling better provision of bus services.

·        On the ground parking restrictions would be enforceable.

Disadvantages

·        Some people may be initially confused by the changes and new locations of parking.

Option two – Retain the existing traffic and parking restrictions without amendment

11        Do nothing and retain the existing traffic and parking restrictions.

Advantages

·        Council resources can be allocated to other transport projects.

•          People would not get confused as no parking would change.

·        On the ground parking restrictions would not be enforceable and road markings and signs would need to be removed.

Disadvantages

·        Does not improve safety, efficiency and access on the transport network.

NEXT STEPS

12        If the Council approves the recommended changes to parking restrictions, the changes will be implemented through appropriate signs and road markings and will be enforced under the Traffic and Parking Bylaw.
