Posted by on 18 May 2020 | Comments

Lowestoft seafront will soon benefit from improved public conveniences as refurbishment work has started on Jubilee North facilities today.

East Suffolk Council will be carrying out important works to the public conveniences at Jubilee North in Lowestoft, which includes installing new sensor taps and antimicrobial copper touch points.

The toilets will be closed temporary from today, Monday 18 May while the refurbishment work is carried out. The work is expected to take around 6 – 8 weeks to complete.

The full refurbishment will include installing new toilets, sinks and floors as well as energy efficient lighting and water saving equipment, which will conserve an estimated 150,000 litres of water per year.

Cllr Craig Rivett, East Suffolk’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Economic Development said: “Due to their location by the seafront, these toilets are very well used and as a result, have begun to look a little tired. We are pleased to be investing in the improvements, which once completed will result in modern and energy efficient facilities.

“The work will also include new infection control additions such as removing entrance door handles , installing new sensor taps and antimicrobial copper touch points throughout to ensure it is as safe as possible for the public to use the facilities at all times. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during their temporary closure.”

During the closure, visitors are advised to use alternative facilities at either

  1. Public Toilets, Royal Plain, The East Point Pavilion, Lowestoft NR33 0AP.
  2. Public Toilets, Kirkley Cliff Rd, Lowestoft NR33 0DF.
