This plan is a roadmap to restore the cultural and ecological health of Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Harbour and its hinterlands as mahinga kai, now and for future generations.

The plan was put together by Christchurch City Council, Environment Canterbury, Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and Lyttelton Port Company in consultation with the harbour communities.

It sets out practical actions so that everyone can play a part in restoring the health of Whakaraupo/Lyttelton Harbour to mahinga kai.

These actions include addressing issues such as pollution of waterways, erosion and sedimentation, as well as improving the biodiversity of native land and marine species to ensure a better future for our harbour.
