WORK has got underway on the refurbishment of Evesham’s Waterside toilets.
The block is being partially demolished and a new replacement floor fitted. It will then be rebuilt to modern standard with water saving and energy efficiency measures.
This will include greywater harvesting tanks which capture and reuse water from sinks to flush the toilets, cutting water usage by 80 per cent compared with standard loos.
Combined energy efficient taps and dryers will also be installed.
A new changing places toilet will also be created, offering specialist facilities for people with various disabilities.
Workman Gardens has now been fenced off to allow demolition work to begin next week with a completion date set for May.
Coun Emma Stokes, executive board member for Environment and Street Scene said: “Not only are our loos high quality but they are also kinder to the environment and helping to cut our carbon footprint too.”
