  1. So where can people go instead? I have quite often been grateful for that facility at several of these locations. Thanks for the list Cllr Arthur.


    • I have only just found out about the scale of this after hearing last week from a resident that ended up using the facilities in a local supermarket. Actual public toilets should still be open – but there are not many of them.
