Public toilets are essential to equitable access to public outdoor spaces. They allow for the space to become a destination for extended periods for socialising, exercise, commuting and accessing community and commercial services. This is true for streetscapes and open spaces such as parks and gardens. Council plays a key role in providing public toilets that are safe, accessible, clean and environmentally sustainable. This Public Toilet Strategy is intended to guide where public toilets are provided and how the community of Moreland experiences them. It will set the direction of Council in this area for the next 10 years. To achieve the vision of safe, accessible, clean and environmentally sustainable public toilets, a series of policies and actions are included construction of toilet facilities that range from three stances to six stances and each facility had provisions for shower rooms. Construction projects involve a diversity of skills that comes from the diversity of professions, specialists and suppliers that are involved in the process from inception to end. Successful implementation of a project can only be achieved with good project management practices in place. Failure to have proper project management monitoring and control systems can easily result in poor relationships, disputes and cost overruns on a project.
