Following the commissioning of Healthmatic to manage, maintain and modernise toilets across the Bay, Torbay Council are now announcing the next stage of their investment and redevelopment plans.

The refurbishment of the toilets in Bank Lane, Brixham will be starting next week. The work includes a total refurbishment of the building and the instillation of new unisex cubicles, new disabled facilities and a baby changing area.

Following the refurbishment these toilets will become pay-to-enter and will cost 30 pence to use.

For the duration of the works, which will be approximately eight weeks, temporary toilets will be provided along with sign-posting to the next nearest toilets.

Councillor Robert Excell, Executive Lead for Community Safety, said: “Along with the works of installing a Changing Places facility in Paignton and the deep clean and instillation of new doors at the toilets at Breakwater Beach, this is our next project. This investment of £125,000 is following our commitment to improving toilets across Torbay and will be announcing more projects soon.”

Prior to the Summer School holidays, many of the existing toilets will also be receiving a deep clean to improve them, this is a further £10,000 investment.
