Please note: We are aware of some technical issues with Council’s Have Your Say online engagement form.

 Once you submit your online submission form you should receive an automated acknowledgement email from Council. If you do not receive this email it means we may not have received your submission. If this happens, please contact Katy McRae on (03) 941 8037.

The Development Plan will guide Council and other stakeholders and users regarding future development and opportunities within the area.

The Naval Point recreation area is an important facility for Lyttelton, Christchurch and the wider Canterbury area. The condition of the existing site is no longer adequate. Facilities have not been upgraded and there are increasingly greater demands on the site. Naval Point and Magazine Bay is the home to Naval Point Club Lyttelton, Coastguard Canterbury, public boating facilities and a range of other community based organisations. The site is also used by many other recreational water sports including power boats, trailer sailors, dinghies, windsurfers, wakas, stand up paddle boarders and swimmers.

The Council is currently gathering information for the preparation of the Development Plan. There are many, mostly recreational groups who use the site, and with whom Council is working. However, Council would also like a clearer understanding of how people currently use the space, and how you would like to see it developed in the future. 

 The information you provide will be used in preparing a draft Development Plan. This will be subject to full public consultation prior to Council approval.
