Call to support Lyall Bay community facility

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Any day there’s a hint of sun and/or swell you’ll find thousands of surfers, dog walkers, runners, walkers, sunbathers, onlookers and others gathering at the Eastern/airport end of Lyall Bay.

Any day there’s a hint of sun and/or swell you’ll find thousands of surfers, dog walkers, runners, walkers, sunbathers, onlookers and others gathering at the Eastern/airport end of Lyall Bay.
Yet the facilities to service these groups are low or non-existent. The nearest toilet facility is a kilometre away and there are no play areas, picnic tables, bike racks or lockers.
Two local Lyall Bay parents Dan Eves and Sloan McPhee saw the opportunity to solve the facility issues by creating a gathering space for the community.

Eves and McPhee worked with a wider group of local volunteers to develop the concept further and gain input from the wider community.

The result is a concept that intends to be totally inclusive in design giving wheelchair users and other beach goers a panoramic view of the bay, skating facilities, picnic table and a Changing Places bathroom (with useful features to meet the needs of people who cannot use standard accessible toilets).

The group are urging locals to tell the council what they think of the idea.

Island Bay residents are being told to expect three months of foul odours due to maintenance work on a major sewerage pipe.
It’s another kick in the guts for a community that suffered through months of the “overpowering” stench of sewage after extensive damage was found in a pipe deep beneath Wellington in 2020.
Two four-metre-deep excavations will be dug into the road at the corner of Adelaide Rd and Dover St, so crews can remove, refurbish, and reinstall valves on a large sewerage pipe.
The work, which began on Monday, will continue until early July. Traffic is not expected to be impacted, but residents in the area received letters warning there may be construction noise and odour.
