Locals and visitors alike will enjoy easier access to public toilets in the Narromine Shire, thanks to $350,000 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the funding will improve amenity, accessibility and safety at public toilets on Trangie’s main street and at the library, as well as at Narromine’s Rotary Park.
“In the wake of COVID, we’re seeing more and more people keen to explore their own backyard in regional NSW – but they need somewhere to go!” Mr Saunders said.
“These upgrades will support more people to stop and shop in the Narromine Shire, as well as take part in the many recreational activities on offer.
“Thank you to the council for prioritising these amenities and ensuring they meet the needs of the community for years to come.”
The funding will also be put towards a beautification project at Tomingley’s Eric Woods Park.
“Funding for improvements to public toilets in the Narromine Shire Local Government Area will ensure that the travelling public, families with children and disabled people all have a safe and compliant place to stop,” General Manager Jane Redden said.
“The Tomingley beautification project will involve the installation of signage and a sculpture in the park, promoting and reflecting on the village’s rich gold mining history.”
