This option is based on development of the site in its current configuration and does not require Council to acquire additional land.
Elements specific to Option 1 include:
- access to the site via Charlotte Jane Quay;
- creating pedestrian connections along Godley Quay and Charlotte Jane Quay, as well as along the waterfront and to key site activities;
- construction of a breakwater structure to give partial marine protection for the public ramp. The breakwater structure would improve the safety of, and access to, the public ramp but would not allow for permanent berthing;
- the scout building being retained in existing location;
- the existing Lyttelton Recreation Ground being retained in its current configuration, with a new rugby pavilion building to be relocated to the south side of the field; and
- approximately 270 car and boat parks.
- Boating safety is a priority.
- Option One is less expensive than Option Two.
- The scout building is able to be retained in its same location.
- Does not fully allow for existing use or the potential growth of marine recreational activities at Naval Point in support of Canterbury boating.
- It may be more difficult to park in peak times, such as rugby season and during the busy summer boating and marine recreation season.
