Community Toilet scheme for Stansted

TWO businesses in Stansted are offering their facilities to the public under a new Community Toilet Scheme.

The uneconomical Supaloo in the Lower Street car park is being removed on Thursday (January 12) following the cancellation of the contract.

From that date, the Kings Arms Hotel in Station Road and Caf� Yeoman’s in Lower Street will be allowing the public to use their toilets during their opening hours without the need to make a purchase.

Ultimately, public toilets will be provided at a new community facility at Crafton Green which will house the parish council offices and Stansted Library, but until then the Community Toilet Scheme will be running in the village.

Uttlesford District Council’s cabinet member for finance and administration, Cllr Robert Chambers, said: “Given the low level of use, there was no justification to keep the Supaloo open in Stansted.

“However, we of course don’t want people to be inconvenienced so that is why it makes perfect sense to introduce the Community Toilet Scheme instead.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to The Kings Arms Hotel and Caf� Yeoman’s for agreeing to take part.”
