Tawonga South is one step closer to getting public toilets after Alpine Shire Council committed to the purchase of land at the Ordinary Council Meeting last night.

Alpine Shire Mayor, Cr John Forsyth, said the decision was in response to the local community's call for the provision of public toilets, increased parking and a picnic area within the town’s main business area for a number of years. 

"Council received a petition containing 837 signatures in February 2018 and agreed to investigate options to develop new public toilets in Tawonga South, acknowledging there were limited options for council owned or managed land available," he said. 

"Council approached the owners of this block of land in late 2021 to establish their interest in selling  some of their land to enable the development of toilets and associated infrastructure, and we're thrilled to be able to move forward with this important project." 

Council engaged a landscape architect to establish a preliminary concept plan, however further work will be undertaken on final designs, including engagement with interested stakeholders.
