    The provision of clean, safe, accessible public toilets affects all local residents and visitors to an area and plays a major role in the image of a Council or neighbourhood.

    The aim of this strategy is to provide guidance and practical assistance for planning and decision making in the development, maintenance and operation of the public toilet network across the Rural City of Murray Bridge.

    The vision of this strategy is to enhance livability in the community by improving the safety, accessibility, environmental sustainability and convenience of our public toilet facilities, inline with the crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) principles and current Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) standards.

    Public toilets are a missing link in sustainable, accessible, equitable cities and society. They are a key component in urban design and civic planning and are important to the functioning of the city as a whole.

    It's now time to have your say on the Draft Public Toilet Strategy.

    Copies of the strategy are available from:

    * The Local Government Centre 2 Seventh Street Murray Bridge

    * The Murray Bridge Public Library 51 South Terrace Murray Bridge
