YOU need a strong bladder to venture out late at night in parts of Warrnambool.

Since work on the new Lighthouse Theatre (formerly the performing arts centre) started last year there has been no after-hours public toilet block at the southern end of Liebig Street. And even when the theatre opens on March 24, its internal toilets will be off-limits when the doors are locked at night.

At the popular Lady Bay breakwater precinct there have been no late-night toilets since the old ablution block was demolished more than a year ago and the harbour pavilion opened.

Two city councillors have tried to flush out an answer from senior officers about any plans to relieve the pressure.

Cr Jennifer Lowe said fishermen had complained about the lack of after-hours public toilet at the breakwater.

Acting chief executive Bill Millard admitted there had been many people inquiring if the harbour pavilion toilets would be made available to the public at night.

Cr Michael Neoh suggested the former Regal Cafe building beside the Civic Green or the old post office as possible Timor Street toilet venues.

“What happens when children attending outdoor evening events such as the Carols by Candlelight want to go to the toilet?” he asked.

“When I raised the issue last year suggesting a spot in the old post office redevelopment I was told there would be only internal work.

“But I’m not accepting that answer. Surely there’s a way to add external public toilets.

“There’s opportunity to incorporate them at the Cafe Regal.”
