Toilet closure consultation open

Exeter City plans to close half of loos

You can now have your say on plans to close 15 of the 26 public toilets in Exeter. 

The City Council says it needs to make savings and says many of these toilets are not fit for purpose and attract serious and repeated anti-social behaviour, including widespread drug use and vandalism.

A report backed by councillors earlier this month says many other cities have taken the decision because public toilets are costly to run and some are infrequently used. 

Public toilets in key shopping areas like Princesshay and the Guildhall Shopping Centre are not affected and will continue to operate as normal.
