Project Summary

Bass Coast Shire Council has appointed James G Morrison Builders Pty Ltd for the design and construction of a new public accessible toilet and barbecue facility at the Pioneer Bay Community Toilet Facility (Stage 1). The design of the toilet facility has been completed and construction is scheduled to begin in May 2024 and be completed by the end of August 2024, subject to favourable weather, contractor, and supplier availability.

The Pioneer Bay community have been advocating for a local community facility for many years. In 2022/23 Bass Coast Shire Council designed a community facility that will be delivered in two stages. Stage 2 will directly connect to Stage 1 and deliver a community hall with kitchen, servery and storage space. Stage 2 is not currently funded.

Council would like to acknowledge the work of the former Pioneer Bay Community Asset Committee who advocated strongly for this project. Their fundraising efforts will also part fund delivery of Stage 1.

  • This project seeks to deliver the renewal of community facilities as part of Council's objective to contribute to the social health and well-being of the surrounding community.
  • Following extensive investigation and consultation, the Pioneer Toilet Facility will provide universal access, public safety and comply with current Australian Standards.

The total project cost is in the order of $300,000 and is fully funded by Council as part of the Building and Open Space Capital Works Program.

  • Demolition and removal of the existing landscape and exercise equipment area.
  • Installation of a new modular toilet block including two unisex cubicles and one accessible cubicle.
  • Other ancillary works such as an accessible carparking bay, concrete footpaths, roadworks, and final reinstatement works will also be completed.
  • Appropriate traffic and pedestrian control measures will be implemented onsite during these works. This site will be a construction zone and for your own safety and that of others, there will be some access restrictions.
  • The use of plant and machinery including noisy, and vibration works during demolition and construction.
