Eco-friendly renovation works to start on toilets in Great Malvern
Renovation works are set to start on one of the most-used toilet blocks in Great Malvern.
The improvement works will commence on Monday 4 April, at the toilet block on Grange Road, Great Malvern.
The toilet block will undergo an eco-friendly refurbishment as part of a £200,000 project from Malvern Hills District Council.
The plans form part of the council's Five Year Plan to invest in the refurbishment of five town centre toilets by 2025 and reduce the Council's own use of electricity and water.
The following improvements will be made as part of the refurbishment:
- The installation of solar roof tiles with battery storage
- Low flush toilets and low water usage taps with built in legionella protection
- New cubicles including ambulant cubicles in both male and female toilets
- LED lighting
- New sanitaryware and tiling throughout
- Repair and replacement of windows
- Improved facilities for disabled and those with ambulant disabilities
- External redecoration
Cllr Peter Whatley, Portfolio Holder for Resources at Malvern Hills District Council said: "We are really looking forward to starting this project, making eco-friendly improvements will not only be great for residents and visitors, but it also helps towards our target to create a greener and more sustainable Malvern Hills District, which is part of our Destination Zero plan."
During the works, Grange Road public toilets will be closed from Monday 4 April until August 2022, and Grange Road South Carpark will also have limited parking during this time.
