Following the Log Wharf Masterplan community meeting in February with representatives from the council, plans are moving ahead for installation of a new toilet block at Log Wharf Reserve. This is the first step in the redevelopment of the reserve to make it more accessible for community use.

The online meeting between locals and council to discuss the Draft Concept for the Log Wharf Reserve Master Plan covered several local priorities including constructing a retaining wall and steps for safer river access, footpaths, a playground, and flushing toilets.

An email today from council confirms that an upgraded amenity block was a priority for the Telegraph Point community.

The new toilet block will be connected to the existing sewerage infrastructure and include two unisex toilets, and one accessible toilet.

Construction will commence next week on Tuesday 26 April and is expected to be complete by 30 June 2022 (weather permitting). During this time, construction fencing will be installed around the site to ensure the safety of our community and two portable toilets will be available (1 x ambulant and 1 x accessible).

The amenity block is an investment of $120,000 funded by the Australian Government Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

The next TPCA meeting will be held on the evening of Tuesday 26 April (both online and at the hall) if anyone has feedback or would like to stay informed on the progress of community improvements. The more unified voices that we can present to council, the more likely we are to see meaningful upgrades to our town.

    People camping at Log Wharf Reserve is a problem.

    New toilets will potentially make this problem worse.

    No camping signage and regular monitoring is required.
