FIND OUT ABOUT LYTTELTON PORT’S PROPOSED EXPANSION
Saturday 10 June 9:30am–1pm ‘Port Talk’, Corner London & Oxford Streets, Lyttelton
Come over to Lyttelton Farmers Market this Saturday and talk to us at Port Talk about the proposed reclamation at Te Awaparahi Bay.
Lyttelton Port of Christchurch has applied to Environment Canterbury for resource consents to extend the reclamation in Te Awaparahi Bay, Lyttelton Harbour/ Whakaraupoˉ, from 10 to 34 hectares, including construction of a piled wharf.
People can make a submission to Environment Canterbury on the proposed consent conditions by 5pm on Monday 26 June, 2017.
Ten hectares of the land has already been reclaimed following the 2010/2011 earthquakes.
The additional land will enable to port to increase capacity and meet the South Island’s growing freight requirements for the next 30 years.
Moving Port operations east, away from Lyttelton’s residential area, will free up the Inner Harbour for increased community access.
