Thank you to all who submitted a response to this consultation. The survey is now closed. A report of the findings can be found here.
Providing safe, accessible and inclusive public toilets is critical to supporting community participation in the City of Moonee Valley. Public toilets are in demand and requests for additional toilets are increasing.
Our aging population also means people are living longer, more mobile and active lives within their communities. Having access to toilet facilities can have a significant influence on an individuals’ ability to participate in their local community.
Moonee Valley currently has 53 toilets for community use, this includes 24 standalone ‘public toilets’ with the remainder located inside community facilities and pavilions. The 24 public toilets are divided between toilet bocks and exeloo automated toilets.
A ‘Public Toilets in Moonee Valley: Opportunities Report’ was tabled at a Council meeting in early 2022. The report highlighted the supply and demand issues associated with public toilets, the geographic spread across the municipality, as well as the importance of safety, design, hygiene and accessibility. In response to the report, Council resolved to prepare a Public Toilet Plan to set out priorities for the planning, upgrading and delivering new public toilets over a 10-year period.
We're keen to hear from our wider community about their thoughts on public toilets in the municipality. It is important to note that not every park will be able to get a toilet, and that not every toilet identified will be established this year however we are keen to hear from you to help prioritise actions in our Public Toilet Plan.
