In conjunction with the draft Black Rock Village Streetscape Masterplan we would also like to inform residents about a new public toilet planned for construction by the playground in the foreshore reserve.
The toilet block will be more visible, accessible, and feel safer for users of the playground and Bay Trail.
Consultation has already been undertaken on the new toilet as part of the Black Rock Foreshore Masterplan. The masterplan is available to view via Council's website
Council is replacing the two toilet blocks (one male and one female block) located between the Black Rock Life Saving Club and playground with one building that will accommodate all abilities access.
The move will also provide a facility closer to the playground area, sealed all ability access from B16 Carpark and clear visual links for visitors on the Bay Trail.
The upgrade is identified as one of the top priorities in the Bayside Public Toilet Strategy (2012). Consultation was undertaken on the location and type of facility in 2016 as part of the Black Rock Foreshore Masterplan. You can read more about the consultation here.
The new facility will contain three cubicles (male, female and all ability) and a water bottle refilling station.
It is anticipated that construction will commence in April 2020.
