Single use unisex toilets

Why:

Single use means that

  • The facility has one door from the outside that access the toilet space. You have the space within the toilet to yourself. It is not shared with other patrons.

Advantages

  • Persons feel safer using single use toilets.

  • Equality access for all – everyone treated equally as a person regardless of gender or disability if toilet caters for persons with disabilities.

  • The majority of the facilities comply for use by persons with disabilities. Those that do can also act as a family room and some even have nappy change facilities.

  • As a Parent or carer you are able to take children or older persons under your care or persons with disabilities of opposite sex into same toilet.

  • In low utilisation areas just one toilet is required and all share equally.

  • If there is a choice of two or more toilets

    • Two persons of the same gender can utilise a toilet at the same time, rather than a toilet sits vacant and a person waits
    • and if both toilets are compliant for persons with disabilities than one is usually left transfer and the other right hand transfer

  • If there is a choice of three or more toilets then the third toilet is usually ambulant compliant

Council has single unisex toilets (no-shared - all gender) at number of locations including the following:
