The Asset Management Plan (AMP) for Public Amenities identifies growth in Berry requiring additional toilets.
Council's Delivery Program and Operational Budget identifies a budget of $300,000 for 2018/19.
Extensive Community Engagement has been undertaken since 2013 with the resident group for Berry (Berry Forum), the former resident group for Berry (Berry Alliance) and the Berry Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Inc. Many sites have been investigated.
Berry Forum held a vote on four site options and over 60% preference was to refurbish the public amenities at Berry - Apex Park. After detailed investigation the greater good has been determined to refurbish to provide five (5) non-shared use – unisex facilities.
The option that has been determined is to refurbish the existing Apex Park public amenities (toilets) and add two (2) additional ambulant toilets that have safer by design principles.
- The proposal will provide modern facilities that will have seven (7) single use unisex public amenities (toilets) for patrons of the CBD and Apex Park,
- It will include three (3) rooms for persons with disabilities and four (4) rooms for ambulant persons.
Works are proposed to occur after the Berry Show, in the first school term of 2020.
