As part of the 2020-21 public toilet plan, the City of PAE proposed to replace the public toilet building in St Patricks Square Reserve, Alberton and relocate it closer to other facilities. We included this project in the 2021-22 Capital Works program for construction.

However, as we began construction in May 2022, some residents raised concerns about both the new location and our initial lack of consultation with the community. We therefore temporarily halted construction to consult with the residents and property owners surrounding the reserve.

It is clear from the feedback we have now received that the majority of residents are opposed to the new location. Some residents would prefer a more central position within the reserve. Others would prefer us to refurbish/replace the building in its current location.

The original facility was located away from other amenities such as the fitness station, playground and courts area. For this reason we believe that relocating the building to a more suitable location along the existing path is the more practical option. Doing so will also provide more open space within the reserve and encourage more activities in the area.

Having listened to your feedback, we are now proposing a new location for the amenities building. Please see the aerial map shown for more information.

Please take the time to review the proposal and provide your thoughts as your feedback is very important to us.
