Posted by East Suffolk Communication team on 15 July 2020 | Comments

Lowestoft seafront to benefit from modern and energy efficient public conveniences as refurbishment work on Jubilee North facilities is completed.

East Suffolk Council closed the facilities on 18 May 2020 so the important work could be carried out, including installing new infection control additions, such as new sensor taps and antimicrobial copper touchpoints.

As part of the refurbishment, the Council also installed brand 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 Economic Development, said: “Due to their location, these toilets were very well used and had begun to look a little tired. Therefore, we were pleased to be able to invest in providing these improvements which has resulted in modern and energy efficient facilities.

“A lot of work has been carried out, including adding new infection control additions, such as removing the handles from the entrance door, installing new sensor taps and antimicrobial copper touchpoints throughout to ensure it is as safe as possible for the public to use these facilities at all times.

“Going forward, this refurbishment represents the high standards that the Council will aim to meet in future refurbishments to deliver safe, modern and energy efficient facilities.”
