Socially distanced toilets begin opening again locally

July 07, 2020

Conwy County Borough Council has announced it will begin opening public toilets from today.

The first local toilets will open on the Central Promenade in Colwyn Bay and in Rhos-on-Sea at Horizon Shine. Toilets will also open in Deganwy and on the Great Orme plus other locations in Conwy County

The Council has introduced a number of changes, to help keep the public safe. These include a limit on the number of people allowed in a toilet building at one time, with a one-in one-out system at the smallest facilities.

Some urinals, sinks and cubicles will be closed off to allow for social distancing. Toilets will be cleaned more regularly, with reduced opening times from 9am to 5pm.

"We will be opening our public toilets in a phased approach over the coming weeks, to make sure that the public and staff are kept safe,” said Cllr Greg Robbins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transportation.

“We’re asking residents and visitors to respect the facilities and our staff, and to be prepared to follow the instructions. We intend to have most toilets open by the end of July.”
