Griffin Park toilets to be refurbished

20 November 2017

The public toilets at Griffin Park in Porthcawl will be completely refurbished in spring 2018, and will become ‘pay as you use’ facilities.

The facilities will also transfer to Porthcawl Town Council, with Bridgend County Borough awarding them a £35,000 grant to bring them up to scratch.

Councillor Hywel Williams, Bridgend County Borough Council’s Deputy Leader said: “These toilets are well-used by visitors and the local community so we are pleased that they will not only remain open but will also be completely refurbished with new baby changing facilities too.

“The total cost of the project is £70,000, with Porthcawl Town Council paying 50 per cent of the costs and us awarding them a grant for the other half through our ‘Town and Community Council Fund’. Work will start in February and is due to be completed by April.

“Porthcawl Town Council will take on the running of the facilities via a Community Asset Transfer. It’s not yet confirmed how much it will cost users to ‘spend a penny’, but it is likely to be around 20p as is the case in many other public toilets around the country.

“For the facilities to remain open they must become self-financing, and any surplus will be re-invested into other town council projects.”
