New public toilet facilities opened
11 July 2018
New public toilet facilities have opened in Dingley Village and Clayton to serve the community when they are out and about.
Mayor Steve Staikos said new toilets have been completed at Dingley Reserve and Bald Hill Park in Clayton.
“Public toilet facilities provide a vital community service and allow people of all ages – particularly the elderly, parents with young children and people with medical conditions – to get out and about with access to modern conveniences,” Cr Staikos said.
“Kingston Council invests $450,000 annually on upgrading/replacing public toilet facilities in addition to the significant costs on cleaning and regular maintenance.”
Council has set out a 10-year action plan to ensure public toilets across Kingston are strategically located, provided free-of-charge and improved or replaced where necessary.
The new strategy was adopted in 2016 following extensive consultation with community groups and a public survey with over 400 responses.
It identified priority public toilets for major works over the next 10 years.
