The Lake District National Park Authority have said the opening of newly refurbished toilets in Hawkshead shows a genuine commitment towards improving local facilities while also helping to protect the wider environment.
The LDNPA, Hawkshead Parish Council and local tradesmen worked together to revamp the loos to the tune of £60,000. The National park’s Head of Property Services, Martin Curry, told the local community the development represented a show of what partnership working can achieve.
“This is the latest in a series of improvements to national park toilets and shows that we want to ensure our villages are both well-kept and well provided for.
By financing a whole series of modern energy-saving efficiencies, including skylights and air flush toilets, we have also cut down energy costs and so invested in the wider environment,”
The toilet improvement programme will move on to the villages of Buttermere and Grasmere later this year.
