The local community has been calling 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.
Since then, Council has explored a number of alternatives but not managed to secure a viable option.
Council’s CEO Will Jeremy said that at this stage, Council has been unable to reach a purchase price for the land that suits all parties involved.
“We understand the need for these amenities to meet the demands of Tawonga South’s growing town centre, especially during peak holiday times,” Mr Jeremy said.
“We will continue to explore opportunities as they become available.”
