City of Launceston reopen public comment on Civic Square toilet block

The City of Launceston has reopened the public consultation on its proposed amenities block at Civic Square.

Only one representation was received when the development application was advertised in late October, but the council has “since heard some criticism about the proposal”.

The proposed building was required, the council says, because the public toilet facilities beneath Macquarie House were due to be demolished as part of its redevelopment.

The existing toilets also have no disabled access. 

In November the council’s general manager Michael Stretton told The Examiner that the “new facility proposed will feature four toilets, a shower and baby change facilities”.

The community consultation will be open again until December 14.
