Berwick Castlegate toilet refurb complete
28 Sep 2023
Refurbishment is complete of public toilets in Castlegate Car Park in Berwick.
The work, part of a county-wide scheme to enhance scores of public toilet facilities, has included a full re-fit of the men’s, women’s and disabled toilets.
Additional baby change spaces are also available.
The improvements are part of a wider £1.5m three-year programme of works to significantly improve the standard of service at all of the 54 public toilets in the county for which the council has responsibility.
Cabinet Member Councillor John Riddle, said: “It’s great we’re able to re-open these toilets after a full refurbishment.
“Berwick is a historic and bustling town and it’s important we provide good quality facilities in the town for both residents and visitors – as we’re doing across the county.”
Berwick North County Councillor Catherine Seymour said: “I know our residents will be delighted that these facilities are now open after refurbishment. We have also restored Greens Haven facilities at Magdalene Fields and later this year will be replacing the old ‘Superloo’ toilet in Woolmarket with a brand new modular public toilet block that includes a Changing Places facility to improve accessibility to toilet facilities for disabled people who have more complex needs.
“I’d like to thank the County Council for allocating the funding required for our public conveniences from the budget and the officers for all the work involved in getting this done in a short space of time for our town.”
