What is Harbourwatch?
Looking out for our harbour
Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour is a treasured place, home to people and communities, natural habitats and taonga species. LPC is committed to protecting our harbour during the Port’s recovery. Environmental monitoring is an essential part of this. LPC created, and will maintain, Harbourwatch as a place to bring all our monitoring into one place so that harbour residents can easily access the information we gather.
Dredging commenced on the 29th of August to increase the depth, length and width of the shipping channel to provide access for larger vessels.
A new cruise berth is being built to allow the return of major cruise ships to our harbour.
