M.F. Vickers Memorial Park chosen as preferred site for New Public Toilet block in Yerrinbool

Wingecarribee Shire

After community consultation (both face-to-face and via an online survey), M.F. Vickers Memorial Park in Everest Street, Yerrinbool has been chosen as the preferred site for a new public toilet amenities block.

The result was supported by Council and resolved at the 20 March 2024 Council Meeting.

The M.F. Vickers Park on Everest Street location is the recommended location.

Several factors contributed to it being the recommended location:

  • the park is situated on council-owned land
  • a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) has been undertaken and has shown that the principles of crime prevention are met
  • necessary investigation works and the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) have been completed and approved
  • sufficient space is available to accommodate both an accessible toilet and a unisex ambulant toilet

The location enjoys proximity to Yerrinbool Railway Station (185m) and Sunrise Playground (105m), catering to both railway commuters and playground users.

Council will initiate the second stage of community consultation after the concept design phase of the project, to get important feedback from the community.
