Demolition of toilet block opposed

A COMMUNITY-built toilet block in Moura was earmarked for demolition without community consultation.

Banana Shire Council Development and Environmental Services officers had recommended in a council report tabled on July 28 that council demolish the Moura Rotary Park toilets and rehabilitate the premises.

However, deputy mayor Maureen Clancy objected to this recommendation due to the lack of community consultation.

She was backed by Mayor John Hooper.

The June council meeting was advised the effluent treatment system had failed.

The toilets were built by the Moura Rotary Club more than 10 years ago and ownership handed over to the council.

Moura Rotary Club president Graeme McGreevy said the club would have liked to have seen the toilets maintained, stay in the park and the council to have consulted the community before making the decision to demolish.

“It’s a good resource for the community,” he said.
