RENOVATION work starts tomorrow on making one of Great Malvern’s most-used toilet block more eco-friendly.
The revamp on the toilets on Grange Road will cost the council £200,000.
The improvements are part of the council’s Five Year Plan to invest in the refurbishment of five town centre toilets by 2025 and reduce the council’s own use of electricity and water.
Among the improvement will be the installation of solar roof tiles with battery storage, low flush toilets and low water usage taps with built in legionella protection, LED lighting and new ambulant cubicles in both male and female toilets.
There will be new sanitaryware and tiling throughout, windows will be replaced and repaired, disabled facilities will be improved and the outside will be decorated.
Coun Peter Whatley, Malvern Hills District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Resources, said: “We are really looking forward to starting this project, making eco-friendly improvements will not only be great for residents and visitors, but it also helps towards our target to create a greener and more sustainable Malvern Hills District, which is part of our Destination Zero plan.”
During the works, Grange Road public toilets will be closed from tomorrow to August and Grange Road South Carpark will also have limited parking during this time.
