Lyttelton Port of Christchurch (LPC) plans to build a new marina at the sheltered site of the inner harbor pile moorings in Lyttelton Harbor.
The new marina will be Canterbury’s only walk-on floating marina and on completion of Stages 1 and 2 it will feature up to 200 berths for yachts and powerboats.
Construction works will start in the first half of 2017.
“The project is a significant milestone for the Port and the wider Lyttelton community,” said LPC Chief Executive Peter Davie.
“A modern marina capable of accommodating more of Canterbury’s recreational boating community is well overdue.”
Stage 1 will see the existing inner harbor pile moorings removed and in excess of 130 berths built.
Under the Stage 2, the marina will be expanded and development of the landside area to provide an accessible and attractive commercial precinct will be included.
A Registration of Interest (ROI) document will be released in mid October.
