|Abstract: ||This study examines the way a sample of Christchurch residents use the foreshore for
outdoor recreation, how they perceive their access rights and what they think about
proposed foreshore and access initiatives. It responds to recent events that have
highlighted the importance of access rights to New Zealanders, specifically the
foreshore debate. The Land Access Ministerial Reference Group report released in August 2003 was an additional catalyst.
The study has three objectives:
1. To investigate the public’s use of, and need for, access to the foreshore;
2. To gain an understanding of what the Christchurch sample population know
about their access rights to the foreshore; and
3. To determine what opinions the public hold about the Government’s proposed
public domain foreshore land tenure and the ‘solutions’ suggested by the Land
Access Ministerial Reference Group (LAMRG) report.
A questionnaire survey of 300 Christchurch residents was conducted in December
2003 to investigate these objectives.|
