2006 (English)In: The amenity migrants: seeking and sustaining mountains and their cultures / [ed] Moss, L. A. G., Wallingford: CABI Publishing, 2006, 295-305 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter examines amenity migration in Central Otago, within the southern alpine area of New Zealand's South Island. Emphasis is placed on the roles of second homes and tourism as major factors in amenity migration. Key considerations include the demands being placed on resources, access issues, and potential conflicts between amenity migration and other land uses. Another source of conflict is the rising cost of housing in the region. The chapter concludes by noting the importance of adopting growth management strategies that consider wider aspects of human mobility than at present, as well as an improved statistical and research regime that can capture the dynamics of amenity migration.
