Public Conveniences

Torridge District Council manage and maintain public conveniences at many locations throughout the district.

Torridge District Council is working hard to improve the standard of public conveniences for which it is responsible. Improved lighting, reduced water consumption and higher standards of cleanliness are just three of the issues being addressed.

As part of an ongoing refurbishment programme, Torridge is introducing facilities for disabled users and baby change facilities wherever possible. Where fitted,  'Wall gate' hand wash/dry units will provide warm water and soap and hot air for hand drying. 'No-touch' flushing mechanisms will also provide a more hygienic and reliable method for flushing w.c's.

Many of Torridge District Councils public conveniences include accessible toilets for people with disabilities. These accessible toilets are open 24 hours although the majority are fitted with 'RADAR' locks. The national 'RADAR' (Royal Association For Disability And Rehabilitation) scheme requires users to have a special Radar Key to gain access to accessible toilets. Keys can be obtained from Burton Art Gallery, priced at £3 each.
