Councils Encourage To Re-Open Public Toilets

Local Government Minister Simon Clarke and Environment Minister Rebecca Pow have written to councils encouraging them to continue to open up household waste recycling centres and municipal public toilets. In particular, they have highlighted the importance of public toilets to vulnerable people:

“Closed toilets may also impact disproportionately on certain groups who for health reasons rely on access to public toilets to be able to leave their homes. They can also make life difficult for young families and people who work outside.”

“If you have toilets that are still shut, then we strongly urge you to refer to advice on measures that can be taken to open toilets in a safe way that was included in COVID-19 guidance published by Government and which we have included in the Annex below this letter.”
