Vandalism-public toilets

(Question No 1525)

Mr Stefaniak asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 7 March 2007:

(1) How many public toilets are there in (a) Belconnen, (b) Tuggeranong,

(c) Gungahlin, (d) North Canberra, (e) South Canberra, (f) Woden,

(g) Weston Creek and (h) elsewhere in the ACT;

(2) What are the guidelines for the installation of new public toilets;

(3) How many public toilets have been installed since November 2001 and where have they been installed;

(4) How much did repair of vandalised toilets cost during 2006;

(5) How many public toilets are currently out of action due to vandalism;

(6) How long have the public toilets outlined in part (5) been out of action and when will they be repaired.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) (a) Belconnen - 11 (b) Tuggeranong - 8 (c) Gungahlin - 3

(d) North Canberra - 19 (e) South Canberra - 19 (f) Woden - 7

(g) Weston Creek - 2 (h) Reserves - 41

(2) Public toilet facilities were provided in some of Canberra's older suburban shops, however this practice ceased in the sixties and new toilets facilities were then only provided in district parks. Territory and Municipal Services maintain public toilet facilities in these older suburban shops that are still functional. In new, larger regional commercial developments, or as commercial areas are redeveloped, it is a development condition that public access toilets be provided and maintained by the body corporate managers of the centre. Although public-access toilets are generally not found in smaller shopping centres, some individual retailers such as restaurateurs supply such facilities, as they require them for the type of business they run.
