The development of new public toilets in Loxton’s East Terrace is pushing forward, with District Council of Loxton Waikerie elected members setting a $685,000 budget for the project at its meeting on Friday.

The project working group – made up of elected members, council staff and community members – liaised with Rider Levett Bucknall Consulting on the new facility.

Council Chief Executive Officer David Beaton said the project would be an entirely new rebuild of the toilet block.

“There’s no denying the East Terrace toilets are in need of an overhaul,” Mr Beaton said.

“These amenities within our CBD are used by locals and visitors every day, so it’s important they are not only accessible, but also a pleasant environment.

“We’ve seen in other towns, that the simple public toilet block can be impressive and functional. Our working group has put in a lot of time and effort to ensure Loxton’s new building meets the needs of people now and into the future.

“By setting a budget, we are one important step closer to realising this goal in Loxton.”

The working group is continuing to discuss options for the McCoy Street public toilets in Waikerie.

TV screens will be fitted inside and used to showcase local tourist attractions. The design of the building is modern and in keeping with East Terrace’s aesthetic.

Seating and landscaping at the exterior of the building has been incorporated into the proposed design.
