Following long delays due to technical issues, the new public toilets in The Carrs have finally opened today.
The toilet block was due to open last week but on two occasions United Utilities were unable to locate their water main in order to make the mains water connection when they dug up the road. However, the water was finally connected on Wednesday, 19th July, so the toilets could open in time for the weekend.
The building contains one unisex and one disabled semi-automatic toilet which will be open from 8am to 6pm daily. There will be a 20p charge to use the toilets, which will go towards the cleaning and maintenance costs.
The toilet block also includes a refreshment kiosk which Wilmslow Town Council hope to have open in the next few weeks. As well to providing an additional facility for park users, it will generate an income which the Town Council will use to help cover ongoing costs.
The overall cost of the project is in the region of £108,000, £30,000 of which has come from section 106 monies passed over by Cheshire East Council and Wilmslow Town Council are covering the rest.
