The works on the new unisex toilet at Council Chambers are well underway.

Inside the toilet, the floor has been levelled and grinded in preparation of laying the new charcoal grey floor tiles. Timber frames have been installed on the back wall to conceal the toilet cistern and pipework and the walls have been stripped ready for sheeting in preparation of new white wall tiles to be installed.

The internal doorway has been widened and the half wall removed to allow for all ability access. The area immediately in front of the doorway (entry foyer) allows improved access and circulation and a more open feel to the space. When the new solid lockable door is installed to the outer doorway, this area will accommodate a private baby change and adult changing area.

In the meantime, there is an accessible portaloo on-site for people of all abilities to use until the new toilet has been completed.

Please note, the portaloo will be locked while Council is closed over the upcoming Easter break.

For god sake ALOT of public toilets are unisex now. How hard is it to appreciate new toilets. Most people whinging have Probably never used the ones there! Arthur's square has separate toilets they arent much chop but if you would rather do that than use a new unisex toilet which has doors I mean really. More important things to whinge about 😡

Go to mcdonalds than

I wouldn’t like to take the children into a public unisex toilet 🤦‍♀️

Belinda, Kimmy and Ben this is great thing for the Valley and it’s good to see people with sense and brains I think a lot people are not happy with anything that is on move on in time. They will be good when it all finished in time . We lucky town so many people are single minded it is only toilet and you do your business and move on so wake up some of the red necks in town.
