Public toilets

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and to manage public safety, we have had to close a number of our toilet facilities within the borough.

We currently have one public toilet facility open within the Town Centre at Allhallows (by the Bus Station), Greenhill Street, and one disabled toilet open in the River Street car park. All the Community Toilet Scheme sites are closed.

The Allhallows public toilet is open every day from 10am-5pm. It has two attendants on the entrances to manage strict social distancing, operating a “one in, one out” system. 

The Changes Places toilet for disabled people only is open in the River Street multi-storey car park (first floor).

It is open every day from 10am-5pm.

Please tell us about problems such as a broken sink or anti social behaviour.
