Bass Coast Shire Council recently installed a temporary public toilet facility near the Angling Club at the Inverloch Foreshore.

Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, said that this is the first step in response to a clear message from the community when they told Council they required a toilet facility in this area of the Inverloch Foreshore.

“Earlier this year at the April Ordinary Meeting, a petition was received containing 1,191 names asking for a toilet facility,” Cr Brown said.

“In response, Council resolved at the May Ordinary Meeting to provide temporary public toilet facilities for the period mid-December 2014 to Easter 2015.”

Cr Brown said more work has been done to establish a permanent toilet facility in the future.

“At the July Ordinary Meeting, Council endorsed the Cuttriss Street Activity Area Plan,” Cr Brown said.

“This plan provides strategic support for the provision of a permanent facility near the Angling Club.”

Townsend Ward Councillor, Jordan Crugnale, said Council has hired facilities as an interim solution for this coming summer, acknowledging community requests over the years.

“This precinct has had a significant increase in usage and is an extremely popular family friendly swimming area in Inverloch,” Cr Crugnale said.

“The nearest facility is at the town jetty just under a kilometre away.

“The type of water related activities range from fishing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddle-boarding and, in its second year, the newly introduced VicSwim program.

It is also the infamous gateway to the stunning Screw Creek walk.

“I will continue to advocate on behalf of Inverloch to now seek funding and support for a more permanent solution."

Council will now work to identify funding for the provision of this building.
