Why is the City developing a Public Toilet Plan?

    Many of the City’s existing toilets are old, no longer fit for purpose and do not meet requirements for a fully inclusive community.  As a recommendation from the Community Recreation Facilities Plan endorsed by Council in 2019, the Public Toilet Plan will provide a framework that delivers a consistent, cost efficient and fit for purpose structure. It will be based on high level principles informed by community and stakeholder engagement.

    What’s happening with the Neil McDougall Park public toilet?

    In 2019 the City engaged architects to develop a design for the Neil McDougall Public Toilets. The project is now subject to funding approval. Funding will be sought as part of the 2020 Council annual budget process.

    What are Exeloos/automated toilets?

    An automated toilet is a self-cleaning facility, with electronically controlled doors. The City has a number of automated toilets in various locations. Exeloo is a company brand of automated toilets.
