A Master Plan prepared in August 2010 to guide the ongoing integrated management of the open space in the Brooklands Lagoon/ Te Aika Kawa area.

This coastal landscape incorporates Spencer Park and the southern Seafield Parks, the coastal estuary of Brooklands Lagoon / Te Riu O Te Aika Kawa, the Lower Styx River / Puharakekenui corridor, and the Waimakariri River to the north.

There are many natural and recreational issues and values present as well as being an area of strong significance to Ngai Tahu.
