Public conveniences in Denbighshire to close due to coronavirus

Denbighshire County Council is informing residents it is closing all of its public conveniences from 4pm on Friday, January 8.

The Council made the decision to close its public toilets to keep public convenience staff and residents safe during the current increase in coronavirus cases.

Councillor Julian Thompson-Hill, Lead Member for Finance, Performance and Strategic Assets, said: “Due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases in Denbighshire the decision has been made to close all public conveniences until the end of this current lockdown period.

“With the new variant of the virus being significantly more virulent, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep both staff and residents safe while using the facilities.

“We would like to thank residents for their understanding and the Public Convenience Team will use the closure period to carry out an extensive clean, and maintenance check of all 21 public convenience facilities throughout the authority, ensuring that they are ready and fit for use on re-opening at the end of the lockdown period.”
