  • New pathways & upgrades to existing pathways - Phil Renkin Community Centre
  • Accessible toilet and shower facility - Alexander Heights Community Centre
  • External paving and carpark - Gumblossom Hall and Community Centre
  • Disabled toilet sliding door and internal upgrades - Girrawheen Hub

Works vary depending on the facility being targeted but include improvements to toilets, doors, access paths, signage and parking bays. In some cases structural alterations or even extensions may be required to accommodate larger access requirements and/or cubicle sizes.

To date, projects have been identified through internal operational assessments and also from customer and user requests. Requests are considered and prioritised for inclusion in PR-1999 for the relevant budget year.
