Bedford community scheme flushed with success

A community toilet scheme has been introduced in Bedford town centre. It will increase the number of toilets in convenient locations for shoppers and visitors.

The scheme enables local businesses such as pubs, restaurants and shops to make their toilets facilities available to people in the town centre.

A number of businesses have already signed up and will soon be displaying the ‘Community Toilet Scheme’ sign in their window. The signs mean anyone, not only paying customers, can use the toilets inside the premises.

"The Community Toilet Scheme will further increase the number of good quality public toilets available to everyone in the town centre and provide wider coverage in opening times and locations."

– Councillor Charles Royden, Bedford Borough Council
