What's happening

As part of the City of PAE’s Public Toilet Plan (adopted in October 2020), we proposed to construct a new amenity building in Duncan Fraser Reserve, Northfield. We have included the public consultation, design and construction of this toilet in our 2024–25 Capital Works program.

We have received requests from local residents and the Northgate Community and Sports Club for a new public toilet at Duncan Fraser Reserve next to the existing playground, BBQ/picnic facilities and outdoor gym. In response to these requests, and in alignment with our Public Toilet Plan, we are proposing to build a public toilet in the south-eastern corner of the reserve.

The location we are proposing has several benefits. It will:

  • Provide easy access to a public toilet from the existing pathway and community facilities (playground, BBQ area and outdoor gym)
  • Prevent the need for people to travel across or around the oval to access the alternative toilet facility (within the Northgate Community and Sporting Club)
  • Be in a highly visible area

The toilet building we are proposing includes two unisex, DDA compliant, and family-friendly, cubicles, equipped with baby change tables.

Please see the map below showing the proposed location, which is subject to further site investigation and service location. We have also provided images of the suggested toilet layout and design.

Engagement closed on Wednesday 14 February 2024.
