Toilets in Powys
Definition: a public toilet is a facility that the public can use that may be in public or private ownership, within a variety of premises and which does not require the user to be a customer or make a purchase.
Powys County Council launched a Public Toilet Strategy in May 2019.
The aim of the strategy is to sustain and improve access to public toilets in a number of ways over the next few years working particularly with town and community councils (a number of whom already run a number of toilets across the county) and with retail businesses (a number of whom already offer customer toilets).
Some of the actions include:
- opening toilets in council buildings (libraries/leisure centres) to the public
- seeking to work with private cafes and retail type businesses to promote the "Use our Loos" campaign
- investigating ways to use Section 106 agreements so as to provide toilet provision if a company were to build a new community/retail type facility in a Powys town
- boosting baby and Changing Places facilities
- publicising information about facility locations, opening hours, type of provision etc.
