Melton town centre public toilets set for a facelift

Published Tuesday, 28th November 2017

Melton Borough Council will start re-development works on two of its town centre public toilets after the Christmas Victorian Fayre weekend.  

The existing dated toilets will be replaced with new semi automated, modern facilities. 

Work to build the new toilets on Wilton Road, which will be relocated behind the bus stop in the car park, will start on 4th December.  The existing toilets at Wilton Road will remain open while the new build takes place. 

At St Marys Way, the existing building will be demolished and a new facility built on the same site.  The public will be able to use the toilets at Wilton Road while the building work takes place.   

Both toilets are expected to be completed by May 2018. 

The new toilets will each have three unisex cubicles, a pitched roof and a canopy over the entrance doors.  The charge to use the facilities will remain unchanged with RADAR key holders remaining free for charge.   

Cllr Alan Pearson Chair of the Community and Social Affairs Committee said: 

“Refurbishment of the public toilets in Melton is a great project and I am looking forward to seeing the completed facilities in May.  The new facilities will comply with the latest standards for disability access and be semi automated.  We have made sure that the contractors are aware that we want to minimise disruption to the public as much as possible while the new facilities are being built so full consideration is being made to the location of equipment and compounds during the demolition and build phases.  There is likely to be some impact on the car parks where the toilets are located so we will be keep monitoring the public vehicular and pedestrian access as well as coaches and taxi services to ensure minimal disruption.”
