There’s been a fantastic response to our call for feedback from the public on Naval Point Development options.
The opportunity to provide feedback closed on Sunday 28 July, with more than 300 people, groups and organisations taking the time to submit their comments, and we thank all those who took part.
Feedback will be made public once analysed, which is likely to take around four weeks due to the number and length of submissions received.
This is the first of two rounds of public consultation that are being done on the development of Naval Point. This initial round will help inform a Naval Point Development Plan, which the public will get to comment on through a second feedback round.
The Naval Point Development Plan, which will go into a lot more detail than these option plans, is hoped to be ready for public consultation mid 2020.
The two options featured in this round of consultation focus on site enhancement, improved accessibility and greater recreational safety – on and off the water. They were developed following discussions with key stakeholders, working with Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke and considerable site research.
The aim is to make Naval Point a water focused public space providing access to Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour for everyone to enjoy, while also improving existing onsite recreational assets.
