Marine Parade loos undergo a complete refurbishment

Town councillors at Lyme Regis are feeling flushed with civic pride – after completion of an £80,000 upgrade to the seafront toilets.

The public conveniences on the Marine Parade have re-opened a 10-week refurbishment scheme.

The new unisex toilets feature ceramic toilets, sinks with state-of-the-art taps and hand dryers, an improved ventilation system, a bespoke sink and dryer for children, baby changing facilities, floor-to-ceiling cubicles and doors, and a new plumbing system.

The disabled toilet has also been revamped and is accessible from the outside of the building.

Cllr John Broom, chairman of the council’s town management and highways committee, said: “The Marine Parade toilets are in a prime position on Lyme Regis seafront and the standard of the facilities has not been good enough in the past.

“We now have public toilets we can be proud of and the council will do everything it can to ensure they are kept clean and well-maintained.”
