dc.description.abstractThis study of rehabilitation of quarried areas is the result of an interest in land-use. Quarry rehabilitation is also an opportunity for Landscape Architects. Their knowledge of land systems and their appreciation of design can be applied to quarry rehabilitation to help create tomorrows landscape. This dissertation is presented in five parts. The first is an introduction to quarry rehabilitation. It describes and discusses both the gravel industry and the idea of rehabilitation. It sets the scene by introducing international and national perspectives and finishes by focusing on the quarries around Christchurch. These are described as problems of both opportunity and constraint. The second section addresses these problems using design methodology and considers potential after-uses. Some aspects of site design and the necessary practical considerations constitute the next two sections. Recommendations and a conclusive statement complete this dissertation.en
