Public Conveniences Consultation

Public Conveniences Consultation

Derbyshire Dales District Council is urging the public to make their views known on the possible closure of Artists Corner and Pavilion toilets in Matlock Bath. This is in a bid to cut costs.

At the last Council meeting Councillors (DDDC) agreed to introduce a 20p charge for the use of loos at Memorial Gardens toilets.

A three week consultation will now be held for all toilets across Derbyshire Dales at risk. An online consultation has been set up. Following the consultation, Derbyshire Dales Councillors will meet again to make a final decision. Matlock Bath Parish Council was approached over a year ago to ascertain whether they would be willing to take over the toilets. Councillors looked at potential costs and decided that it would be difficult to do this without increasing the precept to fund it. However, following the news of the potential closure, the Parish Council will re-visit this again. However, due to the amount of renovations needed at the Pavilion toilets, it will be impossible for us to do this without grant funding (which we will look into).

The online consultation can be found here.

A petition to stop the closure has been set up by the Peak District Mining Museum. Click here to sign the petition.

The three week consultation started on 12th March.
