New look toilets for Melton - council needs your views

Published Tuesday, 12th January 2016

The public toilets in Melton town centre need to be completely refurbished to bring them up to modern day standards.

The running costs are high and the income brings in only a small proportion of these costs.   The Council asked for the public’s views in 2015 and in moving forward is looking for people’s help again in the type of public toilets they would like to see in the Town Centre that will suit all users and be sustainable for the future.
The feedback from the last survey has helped the Council in developing options for public toilets in the Town Centre and those results are available on the Council’s website.
Councillor Wright, Chair of the Community and Social Affairs Committee, said
‘As well as providing modern, fit for purpose toilets the Council needs to be sure there is value for money in all its services and ideally where possible work towards the income covering the cost of the service.  To help with this several options are being looked into and the public’s help is needed again to find out if the Council is on the right track in selecting the type of toilets, the locations, the opening hours and other factors to meet people’s needs now and in the future.’
