Public Amenities Priority List


Shoalhaven City Council recently readopted its next 20 projects in relation to public amenities and is now seeking feedback from the community.

Council currently provides 119 public amenities buildings (toilets) throughout the Shoalhaven. The maintenance of these assets, along with the necessary capital works (building new amenities as well as replacing, refurbishing, extending and decommissioning amenities) is a complicated process and unless managed effectively can become inefficient and costly for ratepayers.


Priority Projects

The adoption of a priority list is not to commit funding but to signal Council’s funding intentions to guide staff and the community in the preparation of draft annual budgets, maintenance activities and long term financial planning.

The priority list will ultimately form part of the Core Asset Management Plan – Public Amenities (toilets). The Asset Management Plan (AMP) was last revised and adopted by Council in 2014 and is currently being reviewed and updated.

The adopted priority list is provided below:

In addition to the adopted list above, there has been a notice of motion for Council to consider a public amenity in Tomerong. Council is currently investigating.

It is also important to note that embellishment to parks and reserves may trigger the need for a public amenity. A current proposal is Bongaree (previously Berry District Park) in Berry.
