Public toilet facilities at Cronulla beach will be expanded in conjunction with the surf club redevelopment that is under way.
A Sutherland Shire Council spokeswoman said the club redevelopment would involve many internal structural changes to the building, including relocating the stairwell at the front of the building.
“Council will utilise this extra space to expand the public toilet area,” she said.
“While plans are still being finalised for the toilets, the increased capacity will enable us to install additional cubicles providing better facilities to our community.”
The public toilets remain open during the $6.5 million redevelopment, which started late in June with the demolition of a non-heritage section.
The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.
The three storey building will be rebuilt with a range of new facilities, a lift and new entry.
The ground floor will include new boat, ski and board storage areas, female and male amenities and a gym.
Level one will have a new lounge, bar, terrace, kitchen, toilets and function room, while level two will feature a new entrance from Cronulla Park, office space, lift, lobby and mezzanine.
Formed in 1907, the club is one of the longest serving surf life saving bodies in Australia.
It is also the longest serving community organisation in Sutherland Shire.
