Public toilets to close for essential refurbishment

Public toilets to close for essential refurbishment

Posted: Mon, 20 May 2019 09:35 by Parish Council

THE public toilets in Station Road, Hinckley will be closed for two weeks later this month to allow for essential maintenance and refurbishment works to be carried out.

They will be closed on Sunday 26 May and reopen on Monday 10 June so the entire facility can be refurbished and refitted. The value of the works is in excess of £7,000.

In recent months the council has been forced to carry out several urgent repairs after vandals repeatedly ripped doors from toilet cubicles and caused deliberate damage to walls and floors including flooding and graffiti. More »

Marc Lee, Facilities Manager at Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council said: "We apologise for the inconvenience this closure will create. It is extremely frustrating to be forced to carry out regular repairs because of deliberate and senseless acts of vandalism. We have tried to keep the toilets open, but the continued patchwork of repairs has left the facility in a sorry condition making a complete refurbishment now essential. We hope this will deter vandals so that the facility can continue to provide a valued service to the whole community in years to come."

The nearest alternative public toilets are in Hinckley Leisure Centre and in Britannia Centre. » Less
