Random stuff about Wellington since 2005

The future of Lyall Bay

by Anna on October 6, 2009 in Uncategorised

Right now the Dominion Post is running a public opinion poll on the future of the Maranui Surf Club and Cafe

At this stage the Council’s preferred option appears to be demolishing Maranui and its three adjacent buildings to create a brand spanking new "Super Building". You can hear the collective groans from here.  

It was the heritage and character of the building which made it such a popular destination for Wellingtonians and out-of-towners alike. As a Lyall Bay resident it’s been obvious how desolate the Bay has become since the fire. 

Let the City Council know what you think via the poll right now.

In the meantime….you can get your Maranui fix with their world-famous salads, available now from Moore Wilson’s Fresh. Apparently the punnets are big enough for two. 

Cold comfort though.

Anna Dean, aka The 'Mouth from the South,' has been causing a ruckus, throwing great parties and getting the word out for various projects these past five years in Wellington. She rarely posts. Don't hold your breath.
