Refurbishment and improvement works to the Beach Road public toilets in Wells have been completed in time for the peak tourist season and the school holidays.

The completion is also well timed for the start of Wells Carnival, which runs from Friday, July 27th, until Sunday, August 5th. Carnival Day, which includes the Carnival Parade, is on Saturday, August 4th.

The project was undertaken by North Norfolk District Council, which owns the site.

Cllr Vincent FitzPatrick, Ward Member for Wells, said: “I would like to thank the NNDC teams for their excellent refurbishment of the Beach Road facilities.

“This is a great job done at short notice, over only 10 days and in time for the school holidays.

“These toilets have a really high level of use, especially during the summer months, and these improvements mean a much better experience for all users.

“I am sure regular visitors will appreciate the difference.”

Cllr Richard Price, NNDC Deputy Leader and Conservative Portfolio Holder for Property, said: “I was pleased to have the opportunity to attend Wells Town Council and having listened to their comments, work with our team of officers at NNDC to deliver these improvements to the Beach Road toilets.

“It is a sign of how good our officers are and the contractors involved that these improvements were able to be delivered in such a short period of time, completing in time for the school holidays and Wells Carnival.

“The creation of a gender neutral baby changing facility is already proving to be a much appreciated addition.”

Cllr John Rest, NNDC Independent Group Leader, said: “This is perfect timing for the anticipated arrival of more visitors to Wells and this wonderful weather we are experiencing.

“The quality of this refurbishment is an indication of what we hope to achieve with our other planned projects.”
