SunLive - The Bay's news first


Following complaints from residents about overcrowded footpaths being ‘littered with tables and chairs’ in downtown Mount Maunganui, how would you solve the problem?

Remove parking bays and make the pavements wider
Pedestrianise the whole area
Leave it alone. Its a lot of fuss over nothing
Make cafe owners and restaurateurs pay extra for use of the footpaths
Ban outdoor tables and chairs completely
