Eastgate toilets in Louth set for major overhaul

Louth’s Eastgate toilets are set for a major revamp in the New Year as East Lindsey District Council plough £500,000 into public toilets across the district.

The toilets, as well as another in Wragby, will be deep cleaned, decorated and have new cubicle doors, vanity units, energy efficient handriers and proximity sensor operated lighting.

Eastgate will in addition have efficient sensor operated taps and flush mechanisms.

Works will commence in January and during this time the authority assure residents there will be a toilet available at each site.

Portfolio holder for the environment at the council, Coun Tony Bridges, said: “We have agreed to invest heavily in public toilets over the next few years to bring them up to a good standard.

“We operate public toilets across East Lindsey and many are old and need improving.

“We will try to complete the work at Louth and Wragby as quickly as possible to minimise disruption on local people and visitors.”

As part of the improvement programme, the district council has already refurbished public toilets at Seacroft Road and Central Promenade, Mablethorpe.
