Central Coast Council is getting set for summer, with upgrades to amenity blocks at Forresters Beach and Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club now underway.
Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan, said the public toilets in Kalakau Ave at Forresters Beach had been demolished with a new amenity building being constructed to allow better accessibility.
“The new structure will include two unisex accessible toilets, a unisex ambulant toilet, one male and one female toilet and an outdoor beach shower,” Vaughan said.
“It will be completed by the end of November.
“The public toilets and change rooms at Terrigal Beach will be refurbished with works underway until September 30.”
Central Coast Mayor, Jane Smith, said both upgrades had been made possible through partnership with the State Government.
“Both projects are being funded through the Stronger Communities Fund and will allow Council to provide improved services and facilities for the community,” Clr Smith said.
“Council is grateful for the $203,500 to upgrade Forresters Beach and $240,000 for Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club provided by the State Government.”
Temporary amenities have been set up at each location while the works are underway.
Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said residents had mentioned to him for a number of years the need for improved amenities at the two beaches.
“I look forward to Council getting on with the job and delivering these essential toilet upgrades,” he said.
