Proposal

The Christchurch City Council has received an application from Lyttelton Port Company for land use consents to enable the establishment and operation of port activities on reclaimed land at Te Awaparahi Bay, at the eastern end of Lyttelton Port. 

The applicant has previously obtained approvals to reclaim the land from Environment Canterbury and this application is for a phased establishment and operation of a container terminal and other port activities on the land that has been reclaimed and is continuing to be reclaimed into the future.

The reclaiming of the land, which commenced in 2011, is being carried out in two distinct parts as shown in figure 1:

  • Reclamation A (comprising Phases 1 and 2); and
  • Reclamation B.

The construction of Reclamation A (Phase 1) has just been completed. Construction of Reclamation A (Phase 2) is underway, and construction of Reclamation B will follow.

The application is therefore for two land-use consents: the first land-use consent will enable the establishment and operation of the container terminal and other port activities on Reclamation A.  The second land use consent will enable the establishment and operation of the container terminal and other port activities on Reclamation B. 

The application includes an assessment of environmental effects.
