The Asset Management Plan (AMP) for Public Amenities identifies growth in Berry requiring additional toilets.
Council's Delivery Program and Operational Budget identifies a budget of $300,000 for 2018/19.
Extensive Community Engagement has been undertaken since 2013 with the resident group for Berry (Berry Forum), the former resident group for Berry and the Berry Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Inc. Many sites have been investigated.
Berry Forum held a vote on four site options and over 60% preference was to refurbish the public amenities at Berry - Apex Park. After detailed investigation the most cost effective option has been determined to refurbish to provide five (5) non-shared use – unisex facilities, that have Safer by design principles.
The current preferred option has been determined to investigate refurbishment or replacement of the existing Apex Park public amenities with single use unisex facilities. Works are proposed to occur in the 2019/20 financial year.
