Crawley Borough Council to spend more than £100,000 installing toilets at two play areas
The new facilities will be installed at the Cherry Lane and Millpond unsupervised adventure playgrounds.
The money, along with £25,000 for a year’s cleaning and maintenance, was approved during a meeting of the cabinet.
A report to the meeting said portable toilets had been used at both sites since October 2021, costing the council more than £11,000, with the budget for this due to end in March.
Add to this the fact that the facilities at Cherry Lane have been vandalised a number of times and it became clear that something more permanent was needed.
The idea is to re-design a vacant building at Cherry Lane and add standalone facilities next to the main building at Millpond.
