Public toilet upgrades

Council regularly upgrades public toilets to make sure they are user-friendly and comfortable for the community to use.

Council has developed a Draft Public Toilet Strategy to guide public toilet design and service provision across Monash. We recently sought feedback on the Draft Strategy, which will be used to finalise the Strategy for adoption. 

For more information on the Draft Strategy, please see Public Toilet Strategy.

Other public toilets we have upgraded include:

Pinewood Shopping Centre toilet



In April 2017, Council redeveloped the existing toilet block at Pinewood Shopping Centre (Mt Waverley) to make it more accessible and user-friendly. 

This $421,214 project included:

  • removal of a significant portion of the existing building 
  • construction of new male and female toilets (including accessible toilets for people with disabilities in both) 
  • reconstruction of the existing accessible toilet 
  • sewer, storm water drainage, rain water tank and drinking fountain works 
  • roof replacement 
  • construction of two accessible car parking bays 
  • minor landscaping works.

Chester Street, Oakleigh toilet



An upgraded public toilet opened in Chester Street, Oakleigh in October 2016.

The existing toilet block was removed and replaced after it was discovered that the foundation and other supporting structures were in poor condition. 

The works involved the installation of new walls and roof, new toilet suites (including accessible toilets), sustainable lighting, landscaping works and the use of water saving initiatives. 

Hamilton Place, Mount Waverley toilet





A new unisex public toilet has been installed at Mount Waverley Village, Hamilton Place.

The toilet opened for public use in August 2015. It is located in the car park, west of the IGA supermarket and close to the taxi rank.

Two historical local images (see below) have been placed on the sides of the toilet. The Waverley Historical Society, Monash Libraries and Council have worked together on this project, bringing history to life.
