New toilet block planned for Otematata

​​​​​Council applied to the second round of Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s (MBIE) second round of Tourism Infrastructure Funding (TIF) for funding support for a new toilet block at Otematata. The application was successful.

Officers have had discussions with the Ahuriri Community Board and assessed options for the location of a replacement toilet block.

Location

We think the best place for the toilet block is at the entrance to the Otematata Domain from the Lakes Centre Car Park. (Option 3 - Refer to map)

Style

We think a triple cubicle Exeloo similar to this picture is a suitable option. This has a reinforced concrete base, manual operation with tough sheet linings and al​​uminum swing doors. ​

Note: Concrete exterior can be painted in any colour or alternative cladding attached.​
