Poor signage cuts visitors short in Honiton, says residents’ association

Better signage is needed in Honiton - to ensure visitors get to the loo on time.

Although the Northcote Lane Area Residents’ Association believes more public toilets are needed in the town, it is suggesting clearer signs could help remedy the problem.

“Visitors can be seen desperately asking for directions to the nearest facility,” the association’s chairman has told Honiton Town Council in a letter.

He points out: “This was particularly noticeable when the Lace Walk facility was closed for maintenance and repair.”

East Devon District Council runs public toilets in Honiton, but has closed two facilities in recent years - including the block at the town’s coach park in Dowell Street.

The council says it is not legally obliged to provide public toilet.
