A local authority will review its public toilet investment strategy in order to optimize provision, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The strategy sets out plans to invest £1.1m during the next two years in improving public toilets throughout the borough, with a further £700,000 proposed for upgrades and refurbishment by 2030.
The investment, which is aligned to the new Building a Better Borough programme, would allow the council to achieve a high standard of toilets that would be accessible, safe, well used and sustainable, both environmentally and financially.
Cllr Steve Siddons, Leader of Scarborough Borough Council said: “As part of our commitment to Building a Better Borough and getting our essential services right, we promised we would improve the provision of public toilets throughout the borough for our residents and visitors. The report sets out how we plan to achieve that.
“The strategy has already been reviewed and welcomed by our Overview and Scrutiny Board and at the next Full Council there is an opportunity for wider member input as part of the budget setting process.”
The location of toilets within main tourist areas would also be reviewed to ensure that there are no places more than 400 metres from a publicly accessible toilet.
