Vice Chairperson, Kerry Howes reported to the April Meeting that the committee had a second on site meeting with Council staff regarding the proposed siting new toilet facilities at Chris Creek and Errol Bond Reserve, Cudmirrah.

 

Both toilets will be unisex and would be of the same design as at Swan Lake.

 

Council had conditions regarding availability and proximity of electricity for lighting and water and sewerage lines and network. Therefore Council’s preferred site at Chris Creek was near the road where the path turns onto the reserve. Kerry showed photos of this site. Forum Committee concurred with this decision, however, nearby property owners have yet to be consulted. The other possible site would be near the trees by water where the portable toilet has been placed. This facility is planned to be constructed in the near future before Council’s Chris Creek crossing and pathway project is begun.

 

At Errol Bond Reserve, Cudmirrah, the same requirements had been considered and Council’s preferred site was in a clear site by a large tree under the hill near where the entrance road turns into the car park.

Both toilets will be unisex and would be of the same design as at Swan Lake.

This facility was to be in the 19/20 budget and is on priority list. The male toilet has been decommissioned and the remaining existing toilet has been configured as a unisex toilet. Anyone using the facility can actually lock the entrance door once inside.

 

Forum has requested that Council fast track the new replacement facility at Errol Bond Reserve, Cudmirrah, because there are community concerns for personal safety of children, in particular, that could arise due to the reconfiguration and design of the one remaining toilet building at the reserve.
