Give your two-pennorth on spending a penny

People are invited to have their say on the borough’s public toilets as part of a consultation starting this week

A short questionnaire is available on the consultation pages of the council website, www.nelincs.gov.uk/consultation

If you don’t have internet access, you can find out more and give your views at one of the following drop-in sessions:

• 10am to 12pm on Tuesday 11 November at Grimsby Market Hall
• 2pm to 4pm on Tuesday 11 November at Riverhead Exchange in Grimsby
• 10am to 12pm on Thursday 13 November at Cleethorpes Library
• 2pm to 4pm on Thursday 13 November at the Discovery Centre
• 10am to 12pm on Friday 14 November at Freeman Street Market

The council wants to collate information from residents and visitors about the provision of public toilets and whether or not people are willing to pay to use them. If charging is introduced, it’s likely that any surplus will be reinvested in public toilets.

People are also being asked for their opinions on community toilet schemes – this is where participating premises such as cafes, shops and community centres open their toilets up to the public, rather than just customers.

For a direct link to the survey www.nelincs.gov.uk/forms/form/1641723204/. Please submit your views by Wednesday 19 November.

A select committee was set up by the Council earlier this year to investigate the provision and management of public toilets in the borough.
