Public toilets in Ramsgate that were shut down more than one year ago have been reopened.
The facilities at Cavendish Street reopened yesterday (July6) after being refurbished. New bins and a planter have also been installed ad CCTV is being put in.
The loos were shut last year due to continued anti-social and criminal behaviour.
The toilets had been targeted by vandals and the toilets team had to make numerous repairs and keep them serviceable. In January 2022, the toilets were closed for over a week in order to undertake repairs but vandalism and discarded needles continued to be a problem ad so they were closed.
A Thanet council spokesperson said: ” The public toilets on Cavendish Street in Ramsgate reopened on Thursday 6 July. During the summer season they will be open daily from 7.30am to 5.00pm. Winter opening times may vary.
“The toilets were closed in March 2022 due to continued anti-social and criminal behaviour.
“We have refurbished the toilet block, and installed new litter bins and a planter. CCTV is also being installed to discourage further anti-social behaviour at the block.”
