Works due to commence on the Little Bridge Street Public Amenity and Pocket Park Project in 2018

Works to transform the public space at Little Bridge Street will begin in the New Year.

 

The current site will be redeveloped as part of the Little Bridge Street Public Toilet and Pocket Park Project to improve the quality and functionality of the area, as well as improving community perceptions of safety and confidence in accessing the new modern facilities.

Using safer design principals, the project aims to deter antisocial behaviour and increase community use by improving amenity and surveillance in the area.

As part of the project the current outdated public toilet facilities will be demolished, with a new re-orientated toilet facility constructed in its place.

Landscaping works also form part of the project to transform the area into a Pocket Park, which will include public seating and public art installations featuring local literary works, new pavement works, public lighting and ‘greening’ of the space through the inclusion of planted garden beds and street trees.

New CCTV security cameras will also be installed.

The Little Bridge Street Public Toilet and Pocket Park Project is a partnership project between the Department of Justice and Regulation and City of Ballarat.

The $320,000 project is funded by the Department of Justice and Regulation through its Public Safety Infrastructure Fund, with a contribution of $90,000 from City of Ballarat.

The works are scheduled to commence in January 2018 with the new toilet facility to be available for public use in March.
