     The Canterbury Regional Council has received an application from Lyttelton Port Company for resource consents in respect of its proposed Channel Deepening Project (CDP).

     This CDP involves:

    ·         Channel deepening dredging to enable larger vessels to access Lyttelton Port;

    ·         Subsequent maintenance dredging of the channel created after deepening; and

    ·         Dredging of seabed material at Te Awaparahi Bay in preparation for reclaiming land for a new container facility.

     
    Channel Deepening Dredging

    The applicant seeks to dredge the area marked ‘Dredging for channel deepening’ as shown on Figure 1, to a depth that allows a vessel with a 14.5 metre draught to enter Lyttelton Port at all tide levels.  In addition to that, the applicant seeks to dredge the seabed material at Te Awaparahi Bay in preparation for reclaiming land for a new container facility.  Dredge spoil (seabed material) will be disposed of at the channel deepening spoil disposal ground indicated on Figure 1.

     

    The applicant has applied for the following resource consents in relation to the proposed channel deepening dredging.

    (1)     CRC172455 – A Coastal Permit:

    a.     to dredge (disturb) seabed material for purposes of deepening, extending and widening a shipping (navigation) channel that includes a ship-turning basin and berth pockets; and

    b.    to dredge seabed material in preparation for reclaiming land for a new container facility in Te Awaparahi Bay; and

    c.     to deposit seabed material on  the seabed associated with (a) and (b) above.

     

    (2)     CRC172522 A Discharge Permit:

    a.   to discharge contaminants (seabed material and water) into water associated with channel deepening dredging as described in (1) above.

    Maintenance Dredging

    The applicant seeks to undertake dredging to maintain the navigational channel, ship-turning basin and berth pockets  in the area marked as the ‘Deepened shipping channel’ on Figure 2, to a depth required for a vessel with a 14.5 metre draught to enter Lyttelton Port at all tides. Dredge spoil (seabed material) will be disposed of primarily at the offshore maintenance disposal grounds as shown on Figure 2, with the Godley Head spoil disposal ground being retained as an alternative option.

     

    The applicant has applied for the following resource consents in relation to the proposed maintenance dredging.

    (1)     CRC172456 – A Coastal Permit:

    a.      to dredge (disturb) seabed material for purposes of maintaining the depth of a shipping (navigation) channel that includes a ship-turning basin and berth pockets; and

    b.      to deposit seabed material on  the seabed associated with  3(a) above;

     

    (2)     CRC172523 – A Discharge Permit:

    a.      to discharge contaminants (seabed material and water) into water associated with maintenance dredging in (3) above.

    The application includes an assessment of effects. A consent duration of 35 years is sought for the above four consents. 

    A 10 year lapse period is sought for the channel deepening dredging consents. A 12 year lapse period is sought for the maintenance dredging consents.

    Submissions close not later than 5.00pm on Monday 5 December 2016.
