After careful consideration and in the interest of public health, the Council has decided to open a limited number of public toilets across North Norfolk.

From Friday, May 22nd, the public conveniences at the following locations will be open:

Blakeney The Quay at Blakeney
Cromer Deep History Coast Centre at The Meadow Car Park
Hoveton Station Road
Mundesley Coast Road
Sea Palling Beach Road
Sheringham Lushers Passage, High Street
Walcott Coast Road
Wells Beach Road
West Runton Water Lane

Leader of the Council Sarah Butikofer commented: “We are constantly reviewing all of our public facilities, to ensure we find the right balance between sensible measures to preserve public health during the lockdown and the need to ensure we don’t attract large crowds of visitors to the area at this time, until the Government advice changes that non-essential retail and leisure businesses can commence trading.

“Following feedback that the lack of toilet facilities at a few key locations was potentially causing a public health issue, and in consultation with local communities, we have decided to open nine of our 39 public toilets from this Friday.

“These should provide adequate facilities for North Norfolk residents and any visitors travelling around the district to take their exercise, as permitted during this latest phase of the UK’s efforts to contain the spread of Coronavirus. We would ask all visitors who use our facilities to please respect the beautiful locations they are visiting and remember these areas are people’s homes too.

“In general, with the virus unfortunately still at large in our communities and therefore still posing a serious threat to life, the main message to visitors is still very much to stay away until it is safe to return. It is still not yet fully safe for you to travel here, or for us to welcome you back.

These facilities will be open between 9am and 6pm daily.
