NO outside taps, no showers, nowhere to wash feet, have a glass of water or fill a dog bowl.

That’s the disappointed view of Halls Head resident Carole Hudson on the new toilet complex on Doddi’s Beach.

Mrs Hudson, who has lived in Halls Head for more than 20 years, claims the old complex, which included body and foot showers on the outside wall, was adequate.

She said that on a recent very hot weekend there was a tap with a very short hose attached but the next day the hose was gone.

“There are two basins inside but I had to lift my feet into the sink to wash the sand off,’’ she said.

“Customers are not allowed in the Dome across the road with wet or sandy feet but there is nowhere to wash them.

“And if you are going anywhere else after a visit to Doddi’s Beach, then you must first go home to shower.’’

But showers are on their way, according to City of Mandurah.

By the end of the week there will be two free standing, double headed showers with foot washers installed on either side of the new toilet.

In March, the council approved a new block with two storage rooms, two universally accessible toilets, two ambulant, six standard toilets, a 2.5m urinal and anti-vandal lockable power and water outlets.

It will also feature coat hooks on vacant walls.
