Council trying to open Union Street toilets 'as quickly as possible'

(Last Updated On: November 29, 2017)

Torbay Council have stated that they are trying to get Union Street toilets open as quickly as possible in a post on social media this morning.

The ladies and disabled toilets have been closed for months due to a water leak which caused an electrical fault.

Posting on Facebook today, 29th November, Torbay Council stated: “This building is not owned by Torbay Council, but the toilets are leased to us, and the owner of the building has now appointed a local building firm to assess the problem and carry out the necessary repairs. A Structural Engineer will also be attending this week to assess the damage to the internal structure of the building.

“Once we know the building is safe to enter we can then carry out the necessary repairs to the electrical system of the toilets.

“Further updates will be available towards the end of the week once we have received feedback from the structural engineer.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this closure has caused and we are trying our best to get these toilets reopened as quickly as possible.”
