Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced temporary toilets are operational at Barrenjoey Headland, ahead of the introduction of permanent facilities.

Funding for the installation of toilets was secured last year and NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service has been working with local community groups and heritage consultants on an appropriate design and location.

New sewer and water pipelines have been installed and will service both the temporary and permanent facilities.

The new amenities will blend in with the natural surrounds and respect the heritage characteristics of the headland precinct. Work on the permanent toilets will begin following the busy summer period.

“This is a hugely popular area of our community – particularly over summer,” Rob Stokes said today.

“The introduction of toilets has become necessary – but it’s being done in a careful way that respects the area’s unique environmental and heritage features.          

“Our local National Parks and Wildlife Service team do a fantastic job overseeing the management and maintenance of the headland precinct.

“The introduction of toilets follows requests from local residents and community groups – including the Palm Beach and Whale Beach Association – so I thank everyone who’s assisting with this project,” Rob Stokes said.
