The future for publicly accessible toilets

A 'Provision Strategy for Public Toilets' was adopted at the Cabinet meeting (item 118) in December 2011.  See under 'Related Documents' for a copy of the Strategy document.

A draft version had been considered by the Planning, Transport & Environment PDS panel on Tuesday 13th September.  Follow this link to see the PDS papers.

This has led on from a Public Consultation carried out between November 2009 and February 2010 seeking views on where and how many toilets are required for residents and visitors, along with who should provide and management them and what they should be like.  The consultation results and the recommendations from the Safer & Stronger Communities Overview & Scrutiny Panel can be seen here:
