New Toilets Open In Bridport Town Centre
4:24pm 9th May 2012
A new block of public toilets in Bridport's town centre has been opened by West Dorset District Council.
The new toilets are located at South Street car park and are the latest in a series of improvements within the town linked to Bridport Town Council’s Town Hall redevelopment project.
The new facilities will compensate for the loss of Town Council toilets from the ground floor of the Town Hall and the planned closure of public toilets in East Street Car Park.
West Dorset District Council Leader Robert Gould said: “We have been working closely with Bridport Town Council, which has undertaken the works. I’m very pleased this project has now been completed as the new toilets at South Street will offer a much better service for residents and visitors to the town.”
Councillor Martin Ray, Leader of Bridport Town Council said: “Bridport Town Council is very pleased that the new public toilets are now open in South Street Car Park. It was always the intention that these new town centre facilities would be provided by West Dorset District Council, as part of the Town Hall project. The two councils have worked well in partnership on this project, with the Town Surveyor managing the project delivery on behalf of the district council.”
The new facilities mean the district council will continue to pay for the operation of two toilets in Bridport.
