McIvor Times - - NEWS -

DRAFT de­tailed con­cept plans for the new Heath­cote pub­lic toi­lets at Bar­rack Re­serve have been pro­duced and will be avail­able to view at the City of Greater Bendigo of­fice on High St un­til June 8.

The cur­rent pub­lic toi­lets lo­cated at the rear of the Heath­cote Vis­i­tor Cen­tre were built in the 1980s and are one of Greater Bendigo’s highly used fa­cil­i­ties.

City of Greater Bendigo prop­erty ser­vices man­ager Andy Walker said a lis­ten­ing post about the new toi­lets will also be held from 10am-12pm on June 1 at the Heath­cote of­fice.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to come along, ask ques­tions and talk to the project’s ar­chi­tect and other coun­cil 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 on Fe­bru­ary 16.

“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.’’

Feed­back on the plan must be sub­mit­ted to coun­cil via email to prop­er­[email protected]
