New public toilets for Sudbury

Public toilets in Gaol Lane in Sudbury have undergone a complete refurbishment

Newly refurbished public toilets at Gaol Lane in Sudbury are now open to the public.

The major public toilet refurbishment in Sudbury town centre was carried out by East Anglia-based LWJ Solutions, following several weeks of works.

It included a complete face-lift of the facilities – made up of four female cubicles, one male cubicle and two urinals, as well as a disabled toilet - which were in poor condition.

The building now has new sinks, toilets, flooring, tiles and the outside of the building has also been updated.

Babergh District Council committed over £50K to the project.

It is part of wider plans to improve public toilets in the town – with funding approved to progress plans for new toilets at Belle Vue Park.

Cllr Daniel Potter, cabinet member for environment at Babergh District Council, said:

“Upgrading the toilets at Gaol Lane has been something both we and Sudbury Town Council have been wanting to do for several years – so it’s great to see these plans come to life.

“These facilities were showing their age – so the new refurbishment will play a key role in the regeneration of the town centre.”

Ciaran Griffin, town clerk at Sudbury Town Council, said:

“We’ve been working alongside Babergh District Council over several years to plan the upgrade of these well-used toilets in our town.

“The refurbished and improved facilities look great and will be an asset to the residents and visitors of Sudbury."

The toilets are currently leased to Babergh District Council by their owners Sudbury Town Council, with the town council managing regular cleaning on the district’s behalf.
