An urgent need for better public toilets in Kamo is being answered.

The Whangarei District Council plans to build a toilet block in the Kamo business area to the relief of residents and businesses.

The facility will cost about $200,000 and be similar to the one at Whangarei Falls, accommodating people with disabilities and a baby change area.

The project is to start in April or May and be finished by September.

The move comes after desperate pleas from Kamo Community Inc who has been urging the council to replace a temporary facility put in the car park after the Kamo Library toilets were decommissioned.

To afford the project this fiscal year the council has decided to delay some stormwater projects in Kamo. The work helps prevent flooding at the intersection of Three Mile Bush and Kamo roads. It will now be completed in 2014-15.

The temporary toilets at Kamo will be relocated to Hora Hora Domain.
