Public Conveniences

Submitted on 06 March 2017 by Town Council Administrator

The Town Council took on the responsibility for operating three Public Conveniences in Newark on 1st April 2015, as part of the Devolution Agreement with Newark & Sherwood District Council.

The Town Council is committed to maintaining this service and has approved a programme of repairs and improvements which will take place on a phased basis over the next two years.

The 'Urgent' repairs have recently been completed and work will be undertaken next week to install payment barriers at the Tolney Lane and London Road toilets.  The entry charge will  be 20p; this will bring them in line with the St Mark's toilets at which a charge already exists.

The decision to introduce a 20p charge at all of the Town Council's toilets was taken in part to regularise the position at all three sites, but also to discourage incidents of anti-social behaviour which have, sadly, been experienced over the last two years.

The new charging barriers should become operational on Monday 20th March.  Signs advising members of the public that this will be happening have been posted at Tolney Lane & London Road toilets.
