dc.description.abstractIn 1947 the North Canterbury Catchment Board became the controlling authority of endowments along the Waimakariri River course for flood control purposes. In the 1960's the Board became aware of an increasing demand for land for both formal and informal recreational purposes, especially at McLeans Island. Following an Act amendment, the Board was able to provide improved access at McLeans Island for all users and subsequently leased land to eleven recreational organisations. This dissertation will look at the historical control and use of the site and how these gave rise to the present site values. Problems and values of the site will then be examined with regards to the recreational development. The various leisure pursuits, both casual and organised will be examined with respect to how they use and harmonise with these site values and limitations. Finally this dissertation will look at the concerns emerging from ten years of recreational development, and how McLeans Island might best serve as a recreational resource for the Christchurch region in the years to come.en
