Stro­ma­to­lite toi­let pro­posed

Midwest Times - - NEWS - Geoff Vi­vian

Shark Bay Shire has been asked to pro­vide pub­lic toi­lets for tourists who pull into Hamelin Pool to view the stro­ma­to­lites.

Mrs Denise Breen wrote a let­ter to the Shire that was tabled at last month’s coun­cil meet­ing in which she pointed out the near­est pub­lic toi­lets were 60km away at the Over­lan­der Roadhouse.

“Who can hold on that long,” she said.

Shire pres­i­dent Ch­eryl Cowell said coun­cil would in­ves­ti­gate the fea­si­bil­ity of pro­vid­ing toi­lets at the stro­ma­to­lites, where it did not own all of the land.

She said the ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties were a com­bined area of land con­sist­ing of a carpark on a coun­cil re­serve and an­other re­serve un­der the care and con­trol of the Depart­ment of Bio­di­ver­sity Con­ser­va­tion and At­trac­tions.
