Borough Council to re-open all public toilets from June 15th

Published on: Friday, 5th June 2020

All public toilets in Erewash will reopen on Monday 15 June following several weeks of lockdown due to the coronavirus crisis.

Erewash Borough Council confirmed the news this week and says it will conduct the usual cleaning standards once they are open, with all toilets having a morning deep clean and then two hourly cleans as before.  Additional signage on safety guidance will be in place, including social distancing and hand washing.

There are more than a dozen public conveniences across the borough which are open 8am-5pm Monday to Saturday and 8am-4.30pm on a Sunday.

Councillor Garry Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, said: “We thank the public for their understanding while we had to keep our toilets closed.  But I am sure they support and appreciate that decision, given public conveniences would be high risk areas for our residents during the height of this lockdown.

“However, with the easing of restrictions we have reviewed the situation and are happy to confirm they will be reopening. Our usual high standard and regular cleaning regime will be in place and we ask that the public also respect the cleanliness of the surroundings.”

The public conveniences are located at:

  • Long Eaton Town Hall Grounds 
  • Orchard Street, Long Eaton
  • Trent Lock, Long Eaton
  • Victoria Road, Draycott
  • Victoria Avenue, Borrowash
  • Longmoor Lane, Sandiacre
  • Long Eaton Railway Station
  • West Park, Long Eaton
  • Breaston Park, Longmoor Lane, Breaston
  • Parish Rooms, Blind Lane, Breaston
  • Station Road, Ilkeston
  • Market Place, Ilkeston 
  • Gallows Inn, Nottingham Road, Ilkeston

Access to toilets for the disabled are available through the National Radar Key Scheme. Keys are available for free from Ilkeston and Long Eaton Town Hall receptions (Proof of disability required).
