A controversial water bottling plant in Christchurch could be mothballed with the loss of 125 jobs.
Cloud Ocean Water, which operates a water bottling plant at Belfast, announced on Wednesday it proposed to mothball its two production lines "due to challenging market conditions and working capital constraints".
An update from the council arborist they replaced the gum trees removed earlier in the year, with some 6 Wollemia nobilis near the registrar building.
Only known from fossils and thought to be extinct, these unusual trees were only discovered in the Blue Mountain National Park near Sydney in 1994.
They grouped these trees together to become a real highlight in the future.
They also planted a group of 6 NZ Mountain cedars (Libocedrus), also near the registrar, 4 Turkish hazel, and are in the process of planting 3-4 Himalayan cedars.
