Public Toilet Strategy
Council has developed a draft 10 year Public Toilet Strategy to plan where and how it will provide clean, comfortable and cost-effective facilities that meet the needs of the community. We invite your feedback on the draft document.
In August this year, we ran a survey to get community feedback on public toilets (you can read a summary of the survey results here). At the same time, we also undertook assessments of all toilet facilities, including their structure, condition, facilities provided, user experience and requests for extra repairs and maintenance (e.g. damage, mess). We also carried out an assessment of toilet locations to ensure we have them where they are most needed.
The strategy sets out some clear commitments for the first five years, including proposed additions, replacements, upgrades and removals. Several of the actions in the second five year period are proposals only at this stage - they indicate the general direction but will be influenced by our open space planning as it develops.
You can access the submission form here (external site).
Please note that the closing date for submissions is 30 November 2019.

Investigating Potential Disposal of a portion of Berriedale Foreshore Reserve, 671 Main Road, Berriedale
Glenorchy City Council are seeking feedback from the community into the potential disposal or lease of a portion of the Council owned land at 671 Main Road, Berriedale (as shown in red below).
The portion is approximately 15,950 m2 adjacent to the Glenorchy City Tennis Club and is currently being used as vacant land and leased to MONA for overflow carparking and to the Southern City BMX Club for a BMX track.
Between the 4th – 25th November you are invited to have your say by completing this feedback form
or for a hard copy of the feedback form contact Council's Sales and Acquisition Officer on 6216 6800.
Once the community consultation process has been completed, a report will be provided back to Council summarising the results.
If Council is satisfied with the feedback received during that process, Council could then resolve to commence the statutory process for the disposal of public land which is set out in section 178 of the Local Government Act 1993. This process requires further public notification and consultation.
