First published in 1999, the Styx Newsletter has been one way to advise the community about the 40 year Vision for the Styx Catchment and to provide progress updates on how the Vision is being implemented.

The Styx Newsletter was published approximately twice a year by the Christchurch City Council up until 2008. It was available free of charge, and was mailed to residents within the Christchurch community. The historic Styx Newsletters are provided in PDF format below. 

The Styx Living Laboratory Trust is aiming to resurrect the Styx Newsletter in 2011, as both a hard copy Newsletter and as an E-letter - watch this space!
