Residents may win battle for changing sheds • By Noah Graham CHANGING SHEDS at Scarborough Park could be installed following residents’ frustration the toilets were congested with people getting changed. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board requested money for the changing sheds to be included in the draft Annual Plan. The city council has budgeted $100,000 for the project, which could be carried out later this year, if the Annual Plan is approved following public consultation. Resident Peter Hansen said the lack of changing rooms has been a big problem. He said a lot of children and teenagers use the two toilets to change in and out of their clothes at the beach. It has caused congestion problems for those who want to use the toilets. Community board member Darrell Latham said it was something nearby residents’ and beach goers had been “advocating for.” “Mainly due to congestion from surf clubs holding teaching sessions along the waterfront and using the toilet facilities as changing rooms. “This has meant that folk passing have not been able to access toilet facilities in an easy manner,” Dr Latham said. City council head of community support, governance and partnerships Lester Wolfreys said creating more public toilets “makes sense.” “Currently people use the public toilets to change after swimming and surfing. This reduces the availability of public toilets,” Mr Wolfreys said. 20 Hours Free for 3 & 4 yrs old Three age specific rooms plus School prep Teaching room For full information please visit our website Come in for a visit and experience the difference OPEN 7 DAYS 1005 Ferry Rd, Ferrymead Ph 366 6306 Ph 03 384 9249 108 Port hills Rd, heathcote Valley Lyttelton Tunnel Ferrymead Heritage Park Port Hills Rd Tunnel Rd We are here Bridle Path Rd Martindales Rd
