Public Consultation on Proposal for Makins Recreation Ground Toilet

Over £400,000 has been invested in Makins Recreation Ground in recent years, including a new skatepark, improved playground, new football posts, and outdoor gym equipment. This has led to an increase in visitor numbers and an increased demand for toilet facilities. The Town Council is considering whether public toilets should be provided at Makins Recreation Ground and want to know the opinions of residents.

The Town Council is now investigating installing a public toilet unit with disabled access in the car park at Makins Recreation Ground as part of the upgrade programme for this park.

This would be:

• a single, unisex unit with disabled access and without baby changing facilities
• a unit with timed access that can be programmed to open at set times (e.g. dawn to dusk)
• a specification that would include vandal resistant features
• located in the car park area with a minimal loss of car parking spaces
• a maximum budget of £80,000 with the cost depending on the final specification
