There will be much relief on Weymouth Seafront tomorrow with the news that the town’s new multi-facility superloos will be open to the public from Saturday 8 August.
Situated on The Esplanade at The King’s Statue the ground floor will provide 23 toilets in total, comprising of 18 unisex toilets, 3 fully accessible toilets, a changing places space [a specially adapted toilet for people including those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and other visible and hidden disabilities], parent room, and a family room. There will also be external showers [for rinsing off sand] for those enjoying Weymouth’s award-winning beach.
The new Beach Control Office will be located on the top floor, and have an outdoor balcony offering better surveillance to improve public safety.
The Town Council will be using the lettable space within the new building itself to run a new café project.
