New temporary toilet facilities
We have a new development on site. Two chemical toilets have been delivered and located next to the existing organic toilet on plot 67P.
There have been exhaustive discussions about what we can do to improve toilet facilities on the allotment site. It is an issue close to many members’ hearts but also a big decision in terms of allotment funds as we could potentially spend several thousands of pounds of ourreserves in providing new toilet and washroom facilities.
Opinions among our members' vary widely – from saying no toilet is necessary at all, to asking for fully fitted toilets fit for disabled users.
The Board has decided to be cautious and gather more facts and opinions before making any decisions. Over the summer season, these two temporary toilets will be sited alongside the existing one. One for women and one for men. They will also be cleaned and serviced every week.
This is a temporary solution that will give us time to prepare a survey that will ask members their opinions on the topic of toilets, amongst other things.
