  • DA lodged for new Coogee Beach showers and toilets

    Randwick City Council has developed plans to construct new toilets, showers and change rooms on the lower promenade of Coogee Beach, next to the lifeguard offices.

    A development application for the large scale project has been lodged this week and if approved, construction could start immediately after the next summer season.

    The development application proposes constructing:

    • 21 new toilets including accessible cubicles
    • 12 showers including accessible cubicles with toilet and shower
    • male and female change rooms
    • separate family change room including an additional four showers
    • lockers for public use
    • board storage
    • a kiosk
    • Randwick City Council lifeguard offices (replacing existing)
    • Randwick City Council cleaning staff facilities (replacing existing)

    The proposal comes following ongoing concern that the existing toilets on Goldstein Reserve, near the Arden Street bus stop are not enough to cater for the Coogee Beach crowds.

    Randwick Mayor, Ted Seng, said that the detailed designs have been prepared following comprehensive community consultation.

    "With millions of visits to Coogee Beach every summer, building additional toilets and change facilities on the lower promenade, closer to the sand and sea makes a lot of sense.

    "Last year we consulted with the Coogee community on a number of town centre projects and one of the most pressing issues raised was the availability of public amenities, particularly during summer," Mayor Seng said.

    "At the moment, each year, we need to bring in temporary toilets to alleviate the pressure on the existing toilets in Goldstein Reserve, so a more permanent solution is definitely necessary."

    The Coogee survey, conducted in May 2014 highlighted that:

    • there is strong support for the proposal to build new toilets on the Coogee promenade with 73% supporting the concept
    • 40% of respondents stated that availability of public amenities was poor or very poor
    • 69% of respondents were of the view that there is a need for more toilets, change rooms and showers closer to the beach

    "We believe the lower beach promenade is the right place. The plan proposes that the facility be built into the promenade (under Goldstein Reserve) without taking away any open space from the park. And, maintaining the existing toilets on the reserve will effectively double the capacity," Mayor Seng said.

    The development application has been lodged and will be on public exhibition from 6 May 2015. Given the extent of the project, the application is likely to be accessed by the Joint Region Planning Panel (JRPP).
