Our interactive map shows the different locations and facilities that are available. Premises participating in the scheme display stickers on their doors and windows showing male, female and wheelchair accessible facilities.
Members of the public can use these toilet facilities during the premises opening hours and without the need to make a purchase. Businesses have the right to refuse access entry in exceptional circumstances.
There are many challenges facing us in providing public toilets, such as:
There is no legal requirement for local authorities to provide public toilets, so there is no government funding set aside for it. This means that we have to find the money from elsewhere and other services may be more of a priority.
Vandalism and graffiti happen regularly and are a huge drain on resources. This is the reason why many public toilets have been closed. There are other forms of anti-social behaviour, which threaten the safety of genuine visitors to public toilets, and solutions are very difficult and / or expensive to provide.
