The Public Toilet Strategy covers all public toilet facilities within Bayside, with the exception of those already under construction, recently implemented, or scheduled for construction within the near future.
The key output of the strategy is to propose a forward program of works that focus on facilities which are considered to be poorly performing and/or in high profile locations where the upgrade will deliver the greatest benefit to the community.
We will also be seeking feedback on the proposed new public toilet facilities to be installed at Green Point, new accessible facilities at North Point, Ricketts Point and Thomas Street Reserve, and the removal of existing public toilets at Table Rock and Ricketts Point.

Toilets proposed for an upgrade in 2019/20
The draft strategy identifies which toilets will be upgraded first, and explains some other upgrades we are planning to do. We are also seeking your more detailed feedback about five of these public toilets.
New toilet at Green Point
We will consider the construction of new public toilets in locations:
- that are busy, high profile or high demand
- where there is an existing/predicted demand or where community feedback has already indicated a need
- where the distance to the nearest public toilet is unreasonable, or the current location is considered ‘unsafe’
- where existing toilets are not disability accessible and unable to be upgraded
- where a lack of public toilets encourages unacceptable antisocial behaviour.
Using these criteria, a new public toilet has been recommended for the Green Point foreshore.
A new facility at North Point
We are proposing to add new facilities for people with a disability, next to the existing public toilet at North Point in Brighton. The new facilities would include an adult-sized change table, a hoist, and a shower.
A new facility at Thomas Street Reserve
We are proposing to add new facilities for people with a disability, next to the existing public toilet in the Thomas Street Reserve in Hampton. The new facilities would include an adult-sized change table, a hoist, and a shower.
An update to Ricketts Point facilities
We are proposing to add new facilities for people with a disability, next to the existing bluestone public toilet in the northern car park at Ricketts Point in Beaumaris. The new facilities would include an adult-sized change table, a hoist, and a shower.
We are also proposing to remove the 'Exeloo' located on the foreshore (pictured below).
An update to Table Rock facilities
We are proposing to remove the existing public toilet facility at Table Rock Point or, relocate the current facility a short distance along the Bay Trail to make it more accessible and user-friendly.
