Toilets in Princess Road
Over the past few months I have had a lot of complaints about the condition of these toilets. I presented a petition to the Environment Panel two months ago following a very successful campaign in Ashton town centre organised by local Labour Party activist Ann Rampling.
I was, therefore, delighted to learn at the last Panel meeting that the Council is considering the following improvements:
1. Installing a baby changing table
2. Installing a new hand drier
3. Installing a sanitary disposal/nappy bins
4. Installing a soap dispenser
5. Providing hot water
The Council are also considering extending the opening hours. A daily checklist is to be filled in by the attendant covering general cleanliness and provisions.
I would like to thank Ann Rampling and Barbara Green of Bryn for their work highlighting the poor condition of these toilets and hope that they and the visitors to Ashton town centre will see improvements in the near future.
