Chapman Tripp recognised for work on Lyttelton Port recovery plan

Chapman Tripp has been recognised by the Resource Management Law Association (RMLA) for its work on the Lyttelton Port Recovery Project.

Lyttelton Port, the largest port in South Island, engaged Chapman Tripp in relation to a range of port recovery projects following the extensive damage caused to its port infrastructure by the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Through implementation of the recovery plan, the port, which provides work for 500 people, was able to consent and implement the largest environmental monitoring programme for dredging in New Zealand.

“It was agreed to award the Lyttelton Port recovery the project award this year because of the breadth and comprehensive nature of the Lyttelton Port Recovery Project, and because of unique issues that it raised in response to the Christchurch earthquakes,” said RMLA’s awards committee.

“We are honoured to be recognised for the extensive work we did on this unique and important project,” said Jo Applieyard, a partner at Chapman Tripp who worked on the project. “After Lyttelton Port suffered extensive damage in the 2011 earthquakes, Lyttelton Port Company Limited engaged us to take on the challenge of gaining consents for the keystone recovery plan enabling the port to be rebuilt with capacity for the future.”
