Council answers call for new toilet

30 Apr 2019

A new public toilet will be installed at the corner of Harbour Esplanade and NewQuay promenade, answering the calls of local traders and customers.

In discussions with the City of Melbourne, the Docklands Chamber of Commerce told the council the area would benefit from increased amenity in light of complaints.

This especially came to the fore on weekends, as Docklands Sunday Market patrons struggled to find facilities.

Often, market goers were forced to buy food or coffee from local restaurants in order to use their toilets.

In a letter to market organisers, the council said its findings mirrored those of the public.

“City of Melbourne’s own investigation confirm that accessible toilet facilities would improve the amenity of this important retail and dining area of Docklands and the marina,” the letter stated.

The $400,000 project is expected to be installed in late May, and be operational by the end of June.
