Notes:
(1) % (out of 374 respondents) who wanted this feature when surveyed by Cllr Elliott June 2012
(2) Not part of Masterplan, space constrained, could be retrofitted or consider 'one cubicle' option?
(3) Could be retrofitted
(4) Mechanical feature, vandalism an issue, not recommended
(5) Important for maintenance and out of hours use
(6) Negotiations and detail continue. Price (except ‘repaint’ option) includes lighting (~7k) and new path surround (~ 8k)
Engineering details still to be resolved including colour, base material, planning permission(?), location of plant room,
surround material etc. Formal ‘sealed bids’ tender process may be required once requirements finalized

Decisions



Re-paint, re-build or re-imagine
Budget uplift
Toilets



Simple (eg 1-2 cubicle) toilets could probably be
accommodated, Cheaper if done now!
Guesstimate – 30-60k in addition
Masterplan option selected means that Café toilets no
longer close to pool


Café toilets were close in option originally selected
Demand will continue, shoukld we spend the money
now eg from New Homes Bonus?
