Public toilets across the district will again be open this summer as EDDC’s cabinet agree to keep 28 sites open.
From April 1, 2023 public toilets will be open from 8am to 10pm each day.
The council remain committed to a £3 million refurbishment programme of its Category A toilets agreed by council in February 2022 and will be announcing details of this later this year. Discussions on other public toilets that can be repurposed to incorporate a public accessible toilet will continue through the summer.
Councillor Geoff Jung, EDDC Portfolio Holder for Coast, Country and Environment said:
“We recognise the importance of our public toilets especially at tourist destinations, and therefore we will be operating 28 facilities for the 2023 season. Our plans are now coming together to repurpose some toilets with commercial activities with public access to toilets whilst others will be totally updated or rebuilt to modern hygiene standards, good disabled access, with some providing adult disabled changing facilities. These changes will be scheduled to start this Autumn to help minimise any disruption locally.”
