Draft Public Toilet Plan 2022–27

The provision of public toilets in Glen Eira improves our local amenity — supporting active participation in recreational, social and commercial activity within the municipality for residents and visitors alike. 

The challenge for Council is to provide a sustainable network of well-located public toilets that provide all users with a convenient, safe and positive experience.

The draft Public Toilet Plan 2022–27 responds to this challenge by providing a series of guidelines for the provision and maintenance of public toilets. The Plan also includes public toilet design standards to ensure the facilities meet the expectations of the community and visitors, and comply with Australian Standards.

The key outcomes of the Plan are to:

  • Provide direction on the continued use of or replacement for the fully automated toilet.
  • Establish the design and siting guidelines for new, relocated or refurbished toilets that are consistent with current best practices — including providing universal access.
  • Develop a methodology for assessing the infrastructure needs of public toilets, that is, whether to refurbish an existing toilet, replace an existing toilet, close an existing toilet or construct a new toilet.
  • Provide direction on the type of toilet suitable for different locations.
  • Provide a map showing the location of public toilets in Glen Eira.
  • Provide information on maintenance of public toilet facilities.
  • Assess demand for additional toilet facilities in activity centres.
  • Set out a five-year action plan (2022–23 to 2026–27).
