Choose your loo – Te Kowhai

We’re looking to install new toilets in Te Kowhai as part of the New Loos You Choose project, which will see several new toilet blocks installed around the Waikato district.

From Wednesday 15 June to Wednesday 6 July 2022, we sought feedback from the community on the Te Kowhai toilet designs. We did this via an online survey on our website and hardcopy surveys in key locations around Te Kowhai.

We asked the Te Kowhai community for their thoughts on the following design options:

  • The exterior colour of the toilets;
  • The cladding and;
  • The style of the roof.

The winning loo

You told us you would like your new loos to have a monopitch roof, vertical corrugate cladding and be sandstone grey.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to give feedback.

To take a closer look at the results, see our engagement summary.

What’s next?

Now that we have a winning design for Te Kowhai, we can get on with installing them later on this year.

We’ll be putting in two new toilet blocks, which will provide four toilets for the community. The new loos will be installed near the Te Kowhai Village Green.

In addition to the new toilet blocks, we’ll also be providing additional shelters for rain collection and water tanks for storage.

We’ll be back in touch with more information closer to the time of construction.
