Exford Public Toilets
Consistent with what was happening over the whole region, the Parish Council took over the responsibility for the public toilets in the village during 2016. Keeping and maintaining the old toilet block was not an option, but your Parish Council fought strongly to ensure that we continue to have public toilets in the village and that we have funds for their construction and maintenance. The sale of the old toilet block was finalised by the ENPA. In a community consultation in 2015, parishioners on the electoral roll were given the choice of a location for new toilets either on the eastern end of the village green (toilets with bus shelter) or near the car park, on the site where the recycling containers used to be located. The majority vote was for the latter site.
Work started on building the new toilets in early June, 2016 and finished at the end of July. They were officially opened on Tuesday, August 9th, 2016. The toilets were built without any expense to the parish of Exford. Your Parish Council organised the design and building of the new toilets and is responsible for the maintenance of these facilities. The lighting is powered by electricity stored from the photovoltaic panels on the roof. Both cubicles are unisex, with one being designed for disabled access and the other with a baby changing table.
