The project involves the construction of new public toilets and a Changing Places facility.
The new facility will include The new Public Toilets will also include six gender neutral toilets, one all abilities toilet with adult and child toilets and baby change table, and a Changing Places toilet.
Changing Places toilets are larger than standard accessible toilets, providing people with disability and high support needs access to suitable, safe, and private bathroom facilities.
The facilities include a height-adjustable adult-sized change table, a constant-charging ceiling track hoist system, a centrally-located peninsula toilet, additional circulation space more than standard accessible toilets, an automatic door with a clear opening of 950mm at a minimum, and a privacy screen.
Once complete, the Changing Places toilet at Hovell Tree Park will be accredited, receiving an official Statement of Compliance after inspection by a Changing Places Assessor.
It will also be registered on the Changing Places website, which gives people with disability and their carers access to a National Public Toilet Map to help them find local toilet facilities that meet their needs.
Changing Places toilets can be accessed using a Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK), which grants users entry 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
