Temporary closure for Corwen toilet block for refurbishment

The toilet block at Green Lane car park in Corwen is to close temporarily while refurbishment work takes place.

The refurbishment is part of a wider project to improve the facilities at Green Lane car park which has been funded through the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund.

In October 2021, Denbighshire County Council secured investment from round 1 of the Levelling Up fund through a joint application with Wrexham County Borough Council for the Clwyd South Constituency. £3.8 million was allocated to Denbighshire to invest in the communities of Llangollen, Llantysilio, Corwen and surrounding areas.

The application was supported by Simon Baynes MP.

The toilet block will be closed for the refurbishment from the 8th of April 2024 to the 12th of July 2024. Temporary toilets will be in place at no cost throughout the construction period.

Some of the improvements that visitors can expect following the refurbishment include a dementia friendly cubicle, which is being funded by a grant from the Welsh Government’s Brilliant Basics fund, and the introduction of contactless payments to be able to access the toilets.

The Council is pleased to see that the construction work for these much-needed improvements to the toilet block at Green Lane car park are now taking place. Once completed, this will bring the Levelling Up project to improve facilities at Green Lane car park to a close.

The toilet block will remain open following the refurbishment with Corwen Town Council taking over the management of the facility from Denbighshire County Council going forward.

There is no doubt that the improvements that have been made to the site will provide long-term benefits for both locals and visitors alike to the town, and the Council would like to take this opportunity to thank Corwen Town Council for agreeing to manage the toilet block following the refurbishment.
