Liveable Places and Spaces Donvale

As part of the Public Toilet Plan 2021, we're upgrading the toilets at Donvale Reserve in 2024.


Where is it?

These public toilets are located in the northeast corner of Donvale Reserve, at 36 to 82 Mitcham Road, Donvale.

When will it happen?

We plan to begin the replacement of the toilets in mid-February 2024, so they are mostly completed before the playspace upgrade works start in February. We estimate it will take approximately two months to complete the works. 

Why is it needed?

The implementation of the Public Toilet Plan involves delivering new public toilets and refurbishing existing ones. The upgraded facilities will be safer, gender-inclusive and more accessible with improved footpath connections.
We have prioritised this location to be delivered in 2023/24 to align with the playspace upgrade scheduled for March 2023.

What will the new toilets look like?

The upgraded toilets will include:

•    An accessible cubicle
•    Two ambulatory cubicles 
•    Baby and child change facilities
•    A rainwater tank to utilise a natural water supply 
•    External and internal powered lighting    •    Skylights for natural lighting 
•    Perforated picture panels with painted images inspired by the local surroundings
•    Concrete paths to connect the toilets with surrounding facilities

How will the works affect me?

To minimise the noise and disruptions caused by these works, our modular toilets are made offsite in Geelong and then delivered to the site.
During construction, we will provide temporary toilets for public use. If possible, these toilets will be connected to the existing plumbing infrastructure to reduce any unpleasant smells.
