e) Toilet Supply and Maintenance

The toilet supply and maintenance is a critical component of a venue event that must be planned for in advance. The toilet supply and maintenance must take into consideration how many people will be present, the length of the event, and all other contributing factors that could contribute to the usage of toilets at the event. As a general guide Mornington Peninsula Shire recommend in their event planning guides the following table for toilet supply:

no. of patrons 500 1000 2000 3000 5000
male pans -1

urinals -2




w/basins -2 4 6 8 14
female pans – 4 5 10 15 24
w/basins – 2 4 6 8 14

One wheelchair capable washroom is required for every 1000 patrons. If your event is less than 3hrs in duration the amounts can be reduced by 30%. Extra coverage for events that serve alcohol should be taken into consideration.
