South Invercargill - the Corson Report
Exciting opportunities now exist for Invercargill to reconnect with the estuary and to develop new and positive relationships with its unique natural context, according to a report prepared for the Invercargill City Council. "The time is right also to refresh the tired, worn areas of South Invercargill," the report notes, "and to set good foundations for the next 100 years of development."
The report says that in the 1990s, a new era began with the closing of the city landfill and much of the industry and reduction of air pollution from the waste treatment plant.
"The landfill site and estuary are now showing encouraging signs of rehabilitation and the public are enjoying the new walkways and planting."
