Council spends more than a penny on refurbishment of Northwich toilets
14 April 2016Toilets in the centre of Northwich have had a spring makeover and are now open again following a major refurbishment arranged by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The Market Toilets in Applemarket Street in Northwich have been totally upgraded with the new toilets, flooring, paintwork and baby changing facilities, at a cost of around £46,000. Work has been carried out on the gents, ladies and disabled facilities.
The new facilities will be maintained by Northwich Town Council, as a result of a new partnership arrangement with the Council.
The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Community, Councillor Mark Henesy said: “The upgrade of the toilets was completed quickly and to a very high standard. They now look fresh and modern.
“Thank you to all Northwich residents and visitors for their patience while the work was carried out. I’m delighted that Northwich Town Council will be working with Cheshire West and Chester Council to ensure the toilets are kept clean and tidy.”
