Bradley Reserve toilet block demolition

Consultation has concluded

The City of Stirling plans to demolish the public toilet block at Bradley Reserve in Doubleview, which has been closed for almost 10 years.

The reserve is classified through the City's Public Open Space Strategy a ‘local level reserve', which wouldn’t normally include toilet facilities given its size, small-scale, and local usage.

The facilities were built in the 1970s to provide changing and toilet amenities to netball groups who used the grounds until the 1990s.

The facilities were closed in 2010 following significant levels of antisocial behaviour, which required the City, WA Police and other agencies to intervene. Since its closure there have no community requests for the toilet to be reopened.

Before these facilities are demolished, we would like to understand whether the community supports this demolition, or whether the facilities should be refurbished and retained.

Please refer to the FAQs and other information on the right of the page and then complete the online survey below.

The feedback from this consultation will be incorporated in a report to Council to inform the final decision about the public toilet facility at Bradley Reserve.

This information is available in alternative formats on request by contacting the City of Stirling Customer Service Team on (08) 9205 8555.

    The engagement period took place between 15 April and 26 May 2019 via an online survey on the Your Say Stirling site and during this time the page received 127 visitors.

    The local community was made aware of the survey through a mail out to 1,450 residents living within 400m of the reserve. Signs were placed on site and located on the toilet block and adjacent to both the dual use path and bus shelter.

    The survey received 51 responses and 72.5 per cent SUPPORTED the demolition of the toilet block.

    Key themes from the comments made in support of the demolition included:
    • Reduce anti-social behaviour at the location
    • Toilets are an eye sore
    • Live close and go home to use toilets
    • Improve feeling of safety
    • They serve no purpose
    • Not required, facilities located at Morris Place/close by.
    Key themes from the comments opposing demolition included:
    • The reserve is now on the dual use path and the reserve will be busier.
    • More development in the area.
    • Families with small children need the toilet immediately, and dog walkers would prefer not to cut the visit short.
    A report on these outcomes will be presented to the Community and Resources Committee (CRC) at the 25 June 2019 meeting.

    Pending the outcome of the CRC meeting, the report will be presented to Council on 2 July 2019.

    Members of the community are welcome to attend the CRC meeting. It will be held in the Parmelia Room and doors open from 5.45pm for a 6.00pm start.
