Investment announced for Aberdare Public Conveniences

There will soon be no reason to be “caught short” in Aberdare as the Council has announced an investment of over £50,000 in its town centre public conveniences. 

The Public Conveniences situated at the bottom of Monk Street will soon provide users with an improved facility, which will include new baby changing facilities in male/female and disabled toilet, new bowls and seats, new wash basins, hand drier and vanity area as well as new floors and rendered walls. 

In order to carry out these much needed works the facilities will be closed to the public from Friday 3rd March until early April. During this time people are advised to use the nearby facilities at Duke Street. 

Once completed the facility will be available Monday and Saturday 9 am to 5 pm – Tuesday to Friday 9am to 5.30pm and will be secured daily via an automatic locking system. However the area will be regularly inspected by the Council’s Streetcare team to ensure it is maintained appropriately. 

Over the last few years there has been an increase in anti-social behaviour and abuse of public conveniences and the Council urges residents to report any incidents so that they can be dealt with immediately. The new facility will be fitted with vandal proof materials that are moulded together in a bid to minimise any future issues. 

The Council currently provides a high number of free public conveniences in various locations across the County Borough as well as Automatic Public Convenience.

Good- I've noticed the work being done on the Monk St. toilets, it's longe overdue as they were almost permanently locked before then. The conveniences at the bus station are OK but need soap dispensers, hand-towels and a dryer that works. And Aberdare really needs a third one, it's ridiculous that a town of this size has only two- it's embarrassing to have to go into cafes and ask them if it's OK if you use their loo.
