Shoalhaven City Council is seeking community feedback on the top 20 public amenities projects with a community survey now open on Council’s Get Involved website.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley is encouraging residents to have their say before Wednesday 21, November 2018 about the amenities you would like to see improved.
“Council currently maintains 119 public toilets throughout the Shoalhaven and these assets require various stages of works including building new facilities, replacement, refurbishment, extensions and decommissioning some amenities,” Clr Findley said.
“During recent public consultation on the Council’s Disability Inclusion Action Plan, one in two people said that footpaths, ramps and public toilets were not easy to use in the Shoalhaven and Council are working towards improving this.
“Toilets are one of those amenities that we all use and we all think our local probably needs work first, but we are asking for the community for feedback on this top 20 priority list.
“This list is focussing on those toilets that are most in need. The amenities that are highly utilised, those that are at the end of their life and those that need disability access improvements.
This top 20 list will ultimately form part of the Core Asset Management Plan for public amenities in the Shoalhaven. The Asset Management Plan was last revised and adopted by Council in 2014 and is currently being reviewed and updated.
In addition to the adopted list above, Council is currently investigating options for toilets in Tomerong and Boongaree, previously Berry District Park.
The Public Amenities Survey is currently open on the Council’s Get Involved page www.getinvolved.shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au and closes at 5 pm on Wednesday, 21 November 2018.
Alternatively, written submissions on the Public Amenities Priority List will also be accepted. Written submissions must quote Council’s reference 8852E and should be addressed to the General Manager, Shoalhaven City Council, PO Box 42, Nowra 2541 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5.00pm Wednesday, 21 November 2018.
