Join the community toilet scheme

Businesses participating in the scheme are paid by the council to make their toilets available to members of the public who have not made a purchase at their premises.  Businesses are paid £1,000 (plus VAT if the business is VAT registered) per year.

Businesses also benefit from promotion across the borough as a participant in the scheme.
