Have your say on Council’s Draft Public Toilet Strategy

3 July 2015

Following a recent review of Western Downs Regional Council’s public toilet network, a Draft Public Toilet Strategy has been developed to address the maintenance, accessibility, and long-term sustainability of the network, and the community is now able to have their say on the Draft Strategy during the customer feedback period, which opened at 8am this morning (Friday 3 July) and closes at 5pm, Monday 3 August.

Spokesperson for Community Facilities, Sport and Recreation Councillor Charlene Hall said the proposed Strategy outlines Council’s vision and plan for a highly-regarded, safe, and accessible Council-owned public toilet network.

“Council owns and manages 62 public toilet sites across the region that are in various states of design, age and condition. The Draft Public Toilet Strategy aims to provide a strategic framework and action plan to ensure Council delivers a suitable public toilet network that is safe and accessible, easy to find, clean and presentable, and of a high standard and quality,” she said.

“Council is committed to enhancing the liveability and sustainability of our region by effectively managing and servicing these valuable community assets to meet the current and future needs of our communities.

“So, from Bell to Dulacca, Chinchilla to Glenmorgan, and Moonie to Wandoan, I strongly encourage residents to take the time to read through the Draft Strategy and fill out the customer feedback form, which will be available on Council’s website from this Friday.

“If you have any queries about the Draft Strategy, or on completing the feedback form, please contact Council on 1300 COUNCIL or via email on info@wdrc.qld.gov.au.”

Residents can download a copy of the Draft Strategy and fill out the online feedback form via Council’s website www.wdrc.qld.gov.au/draft-public-toilet-strategy. Hardcopies of the Draft Strategy will be available at Council’s Customer Service Centres.

All submissions received will be considered by Council and the final version of the Western Downs Regional Council Public Toilet Strategy will be made available on Council’s website.
