The Lyttelton Master Plan is the result of a close partnership between the Council, Banks Peninsula Community Board, other organisations and the highly motivated and socially connected local community.
Lyttelton fulfils an important service centre role for the other communities around Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour.
Lyttelton’s land-based transport links, commercial centre, community facilities, heritage buildings and character were severely affected by the 22 February 2011 earthquake and warranted the preparation of a master plan [PDF, 3.3 MB] to guide its recovery and rebuild.

The Lyttelton Master Plan contains a strategic vision to transform Lyttelton into a quality place for businesses to operate in, and people to work, live, shop, socialise and play.
The vision is supported by nine goals, which are to be delivered through thirty-one detailed implementation actions. These encourage Council, private sector, community and government-led decision-making to align and move forward together in a logical sequence.
The vision, goals and actions are described in detail in Section 4 of the Lyttelton Master Plan [PDF, 3.3 MB].
