Consultation Outcomes (Public Toilets)

This report provides Committee with the outcomes of a public consultation exercise undertaken as part of the 2022/23 budget setting process, to reduce the revenue expenditure for Public Toilets.


On 28 February 2022, Budget Council agreed a balanced budget for the 2022/23 financial year. This included proposals for the reduction of the number of Public Toilets which would generate savings and allow for the balanced budget to be achieved. As part of Budget Council’s recommendations an amount of £50,000 would be taken from the Public Toilet Budget which would result in the re-alignment of the facilities. The Council currently provides 9 locations for Public Conveniences throughout the Borough and this proposal recommends:


·  The retention of: West Kirby Marine Lake, Parade Gardens Hoylake, Harrison Drive (Kings Parade) New Brighton and Moreton Common

·  The closure of: Moreton Cross, West Kirby Concourse (external), Meols Parade (Bennetts Lane), New Ferry and Thornton Hough.


The public consultation exercise was opened on the Councils Have Your Say platform between 16th February and 14th April 2022.
