Work to commence on new public toilets for Heathcote
Work is set to commence on the construction of new public toilets in Heathcote’s Barrack Reserve this week.
City of Greater Bendigo Property Services Manager Daniella McClure said the new public toilet block will feature a covered entrance, security lighting, three male toilets and urinal, six female toilets, a unisex accessible toilet and provision for a future changing place facility.
“It is being constructed adjacent to the existing toilets which will be demolished and the site landscaped when the new facilities are completed,” Ms McClure said.
“Constructed in the 1980s the Barrack Reserve toilet block located at the rear of the Heathcote Visitor Centre, is one of Greater Bendigo’s most used facilities.
“This is a priority project for the Heathcote community who have been calling for new toilet facilities to serve Barrack Reserve for some time.
“It also completes a major action from the City’s Public Toilet Strategy and will be a much welcome addition to the Barrack Reserve for both residents and visitors alike.
“The new facility has been planned in consultation with the local community and it’s exciting that construction is now about to commence.”
This important $400,000 project for Heathcote has been funded by the City of Greater Bendigo and is due for completion in late 2019.
