Visit Cleveleys has been contacted by Wyre Council regarding provision of public conveniences in the Cleveleys area. What do you think to Public loos? Not just in Cleveleys but also Thornton and the coastal areas of Wyre (Fleetwood, Over Wyre etc).
Public toilets are currently managed by Danfo. They are individual cubicles, accessed with a 20p slot. Here in Cleveleys you can find them at the bus station, Rough Lea Road car park (pictured above) and at the seafront cafe, opposite Jubilee Gardens.
What do you think to Public Loos?
Wyre has been running a task group about the borough’s public conveniences and they have asked for your view, from the perspective of Cleveleys’ residents and community groups.
In very broad terms please add your comments below about the provision of public loos in the Cleveleys (and more generally coastal and Thornton) areas.
The sort of things that the task group would like to know are:
- Is provision of loos adequate?
- Are they well looked after?
- Is the 20p fee reasonable, bearing in mind that it had remained unchanged for 11 years. Would 30p be acceptable?
- What do you think to disabled facilities? And the use, or abuse, of radar keys.
- What about ‘Changing Places’ loos?
Access to More Loos
Should consideration be given to approaching local cafes, pubs, stores, etc. to seek their agreement to make their toilets available to the public?
Would there be support for this from both users and businesses, or reluctance?
Do you think there’s potential for advertising in or around public toilets?
Are there any other improvements that you could suggest, that could be considered by the task group?
Do you have any other comments? Please feel free to say whatever you think is relevant about the borough’s loos.

Trivial as it might seem to some, public toilets is an important issue for many. It can make the difference between a destination being popular or not.
Cleveleys Coastal Community Team would like to see as many good, clean facilities in the town as possible.
