Woodgate Beach residents and visitors are advised new amenities are set to be constructed at the local hall to provide the community with more access.
The rebuild of the existing toilet block will provide male, female and unisex toilets.
Divisional representative Cr Bill Trevor said funding for the Woodgate Community Hall amenity block was included as part of Council’s 2021-22 budget.
“The old Woodgate Community Hall toilet facilities were becoming dated, and Council listened to the residents who advocated for the upgrade,” Cr Trevor said.
“Each of the unisex toilets will also include the new addition of a fold-down baby change table in each.”
Cr Trevor said the upgrade would service not only the needs of visitors to the beautiful Woodgate Beach area, but also local groups and auxiliary sport and recreation organisations in the region.
“The construction work will begin on Monday 13 February and is expected to take four to five weeks,” he said.
“There will be minimal disruptions to the community during the construction of the Woodgate Community Hall new amenities – some noise is expected, mainly during internal demolition.
“Hall users have been notified of the potential disruptions.
“The amenities will have the entire contents, walls and concrete flooring removed before rebuilding of the new layout.
“Temporary amenities are on site and an accessible portable toilet is also being sent to site in the next few days.”
Refurbishment to Woodgate Beach Park North amenities was also completed, with new toilets, showers and more added to the public facility, at the end of last year.
Just a querey when this new toilets are built who do they consult especially regarding accessible toilets is there something in the building code that putting rails either side of the bowl from the wall to the front of the bowl fold down types or permenant would be very helpful to the ones who cannot use their legs but can transfer still and also a toilet paper dispenser at the backwall would help carers out too why this can’t be implemented in all new council built facilities don’t know i’m not a builder,carpenter etc just seeing it from a husbands/carers perspective.
