Information relating to the removal of Hobbit paraphernalia at Wellington Airport

Ben Moore made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

Wellington City Council did not have the information requested.

From: Ben Moore

Dear Wellington City Council,

I am wondering what plans are in place, if any, to remove the various Hobbit sculptures at Wellington Airport as they're now pretty dated and cringe-worthy.

To that end I request any correspondence, plans or other documentation relating to their removal, I additionally request any information held relating to the expenditure (including planned expenditure), if any, made by Council relating to the sculptures' installation, maintenance and removal. I am aware that WIA is not a part of Council and not covered by the LGOIMA, please read this request to relating to any information on a Council controlled system.

For the avoidance of doubt I am referring to that one of the gaunt person reaching for the fish in the food court, and the dragon in the departures hall.

Yours faithfully,
Ben Moore
