Detailed concept plans for new Heathcote toilets go on display
Draft detailed concept plans for the new Heathcote public toilets in Barrack Reserve have been produced and will be available to view at the City of Greater Bendigo office on High Street, Heathcote until Friday June 8, 2018.
The current public toilets located at the rear of the Heathcote Visitor Centre were constructed in the 1980s and are one of Greater Bendigo’s most used facilities.
City Property Services Manager Andy Walker said a listening post about the new toilets would be held from 10am to 12 noon on Friday June 1 at the City’s Heathcote office.
“This is an opportunity for residents to come along, ask questions and talk to the project’s architect and other City staff about the plans,” Mr Walker said.
“The draft plans incorporate feedback received from the community at the Summer Family Day, which took place at Barrack Reserve in February.
“We listened to the community and have developed detailed draft concept plans for a modern, accessible public toilet block.
“It is proposed to construct the new facility in the same location as the current toilet block. It will feature a covered entrance, security lighting, three male toilets and urinal, six female toilets, a unisex accessible toilet and space for a future changing place facility.
“This is an important project for the Heathcote community, which has been calling for new toilet facilities to serve Barrack Reserve for some time. It is also a major action from the City’s recent Public Toilet Strategy.”
Feedback on the draft plan is welcome and must be submitted to the City via email to [email protected] by close of business Friday June 8, 2018. Further information can be obtained by phoning the City’s Property Services unit on 5434 6440.
All feedback received will be considered prior to the final plans being produced.
