Relief for shoppers as public toilets in Bromsgrove and Rubery are set to reopen

THREE public toilets will reopen across Bromsgrove and Rubery from Monday, July 6.

The conveniences, operated by Bromsgrove District Council, are in the town centre (by the bus station), in Sanders Park and on New Road, Rubery.

Some toilets and sinks and all urinals have been placed ‘out of order’ to support social distancing and to ensure everyone stays safe.

Each one will receive three deep cleans-a-day.

The council’s general advice is for people to avoid using the toilets if possible.

Jayne Pickering, Bromsgrove District Council’s executive director of finance and resources, said: “We’re delighted to be able to reopen these public toilets, and hope that everyone understands the general risks of using public facilities at this time.

“We’ve spaced out the available toilets and sinks, added guidance signage, and increased the cleaning schedules to 3 deep cleans a day, but of course the best way to minimise the risk to yourself and others is use them only if really necessary.”

The re-openings are coming after the Government announced the next easing of Coronavirus restrictions nationwide.

More swathes of the economy are expected to start to re-open with safety measures from Saturday July 4.
