Manor Place Convenience – media attention in 2020

Well I’ve had quite a week! Little did I know that one tweet  about my application for Manor Place urinals to go on Heritage NZ list would cause such interest.

Check out the media page on this site to hear and watch interviews. Below is the Radio NZ interview with Jesse Mulligan.

The Manor Place Convenience is on the Dunedin City Council Second Generation Plan and is 100% protected as a heritage structure. I want to get it recognised nationally by nominating it for the Heritage NZ list. It is significant as a “time capsule” into 1912 Dunedin and is our only tangible site linked to the long demolished undergrounds conveniences as it used the same tiles and fittings.

People are sending ideas through for reuse as restoration continues as budget allows. What do you think it could be used for? [and remember its not a tardis! It is quite small!]
