A draft design for a new amenities block at Bermagui’s Bruce Steer Pool is on public exhibition for community feedback until 15 April.

This consultation phase follows on from a master planning process that identified the need for the installation of an accessible facility on the same level as the pool and a Council resolution that BVSC reach an agreement with the Bermagui community on the provision of toilet facilities at the location. 

Council’s Recreation Projects Supervisor, Matthew Collins, said that the overarching aim of the project is to deliver a simple facility, done well.

“The amenities building commences implementation of the accessibility master plan for Bruce Steer Pool and will be funded via existing asset renewal budgets, with further elements to be implemented as funding becomes available” Mr Collins said.

“Accessibility and practicality were the key considerations in the development of the design, with finished levels set to take into account occasional storm surges and potential water inundation.

“This layout comprising single facilities without common internal areas has become increasingly popular, as it improves general surveillance, removes enclosed common areas and generally reduces the opportunity for unwanted behaviour.

“With the new facility set to replace the old brick facility on the hill, additional sewer connection points will be incorporated to cater for large scale community events,” Mr Collins said.
