Tuross beach toilets well below standard


At the Tuross Head Progress meeting on Thursday 3rd Nov attendees were advised that there were now considerable concerns for the state of the two old beach toilets in the town. From the comments of those present it appeared that the wider community was not at all satisfied with the condition of the toilet blocks that are now well past their use-by-date. Forty years ago the besser block toilets would have been a grand addition to the beaches for our summer visitors but now they are drab and well below any acceptable standard. Council has been asked many times of an expected replacement date and have continued to say that these toilets are low on their priority list. They have also advised that there have been recent upgrades to the Sandy Point toilets and Evans Reserve toilets (Federally funded) and that the Ammenities block at Kyla has just been reburbished (paid for by the recent rate increase). Within Council's infrastructure fund there is a requirement to write off assets when they arrive at the end of their economic life and replace them when they come to the end of their service life and fall below satisfactory. In a recent survey of the Tuross Head community over 75% of respondents said that they would prefer to hold until until they got home rather than use these two toilet blocks. If that is what residents feel then what must the visitors to Tuross Head feel. The Tuross Head Progress Assoc meeting moved to write to Council and Councillors ask for a replacement date to be SET. The toilets are well below standard and the issue can no longer be ignored. Back in September 2013 the question was asked "Should Coila have a beach cafe on its toilet block" You can read the article here
