Weston-super-Mare Town Council understands the inconvenience of the Ashcombe Park Toilet being closed.
Unfortunately the disability ramp has been subject to manufacturing delays due to steel galvanising and necessary design adjustments to ensure the slope meets legislation guidelines. It is not possible to install the ramp prior to receiving the steel as this needs to be installed into the concrete.
The Town Council is doing all they can to open the toilets as soon as possible and apologises for any inconvenience caused. Whilst this is a short term inconvenience which we fully appreciate, we would emphasise that had we not taken over the toilets there would be no WC in the park as they were marked for closure. This is something the Town Council felt strongly against, hence the decision to take them on and prevent closure.
Once again the Town Council apologises and would like to assure the public that we are doing our utmost to re-open the toilets as soon as possible.
