coffin toilet

It's the end of the road for a very strange toilet

1 February 2013

As every tradesman knows, local councils can be real sticklers when it comes to enforcing by-laws. So it’s probably not surprising that a local council in Queensland has ordered a $1200 coffin-shaped toilet located at a local cemetery to be pulled down. They claim that the toilet was erected without permission and violates numerous regulations.

Members of the Millaa Millaa Chamber of Commerce erected the masterpiece themselves after the Tablelands Regional Council said it could not afford to spend $83,000 on installing a proper one.

According to a recent council report, the toilet was built without planning permission on council-owned land at the Theresa Creek Rd cemetery south-east of Cairns and contravenes “numerous” plumbing and building regulations - not even accounting the fact that the coffin shaped toilet sets new standards in tackiness.

The local council thinks the facility is disrespectful, which has lead to the council order for it to be removed and replaced.
