A consultation has been launched in Ceredigion on the local Toilet Strategy. The consultation will give people the chance to have their say on public toilets in the county.
The feedback from this consultation will help to develop a strategy that will make suitable public convenience provision across the county. Under the Public Health (Wales) Act 2017, the council is required to publish a local Toilet Strategy.
The Cabinet member responsible for Economy and Regeneration, Councillor Rhodri Evans said, “Access to toilets is an issue that affects public health. A lack of adequate toilet facilities has considerable impact on a person’s physical and mental health and are important to certain groups within society. The poor provision of toilets could contribute to social isolation and inactivity as well as affecting people’s ability to maintain independence and dignity in later life.”
“Accessible, clean toilets in the right places can encourage people to take exercise and stay physically active.”
The public consultation will close on 25 February 2019. The consultation will be carried out through a questionnaire, which is available on the council’s website: https://www.ceredigion.gov.uk/your-council/consultations/public-toilets-consultation/.
A printed copy of the Toilet Strategy Questionnaire is available by request by contacting the Property Services Service desk on 01970 633900.
