A FOUR-decade-old toilet block in Yanchep will receive a makeover this year, according to the City of Wanneroo.
In a statement released this week, the City announced plans to “makeover” rather than replace the public facilities at Fisherman’s Hollow, built about 44 years ago.
“The City originally planned to demolish the existing facilities and construct a new toilet block,” it said.
“However, construction tenders were much greater than anticipated so the City has determined that a renovation of the current facility will be the most cost effective solution for the community.
“All of the important aspects of the upgrade will remain, including new roofing, baby change facilities, one additional cubicle, a new unisex accessible toilet, and an overall upgrade of the finishes.
“The existing mosaic artwork will also remain.”
Last November the council delegated decisions on the Fisherman Hollow toilet block upgrade to chief executive Daniel Simms after declining all tenders for the previous plan because they exceeded the $452,000 budget.
The tender process for the renovation will start soon and work is expected to be completed by December.
