Charges introduced at Salisbury's Coach Station toilets

Charges introduced at Salisbury's Coach Station toilets

Spending a penny will now cost visitors to the city 50p.

The charges have been introduced after the loos in Millstream Approach were refurbished by Salisbury City Council.

They are the first of the nine public toilets managed by the local authority to get a makeover.

The 6 cubicles have been furnished with Wallgate anti-vandal robust toilets and wash hand units as well as mirrors. 

Although initially the toilets were open for a period of free use there will now be a charge of 50p with a range of payment options of coin or contactless available.

Included in the refurbishment are disabled and accessible toilets with Radar Key access.

Last autumn Salisbury City Council launched a public consultation on the future delivery of the public loos it currently runs at a cost of £210,000 per year.

Charging was on option considered.

It's not yet known if charges will be installed at other loos run by the city council.
