A BLOCK of public toilets in Malvern is set for a £200,000 refurb.

At next week's Executive Committee meeting, councillors from Malvern Hills District Council will discuss plans to renovate the toilets in Grange Road.

The Council’s public toilets were last refurbished over 15 years ago and committee documents say the block in Grange Road is one of the most used in the district.

Because of this, refurbishment is of the "highest priority".

A number of improvements to the toilets have been proposed, with the council to choose from one of seven bids.

Improvements include: installing solar roof tiles with battery storage, low-flush toilets and low water-usage taps.

There will also be new lighting, tiling, window replacements and external decoration.

Councillors will be asked to approve a spend of up to £200,000 for the work when they meet on January 18.

The aim of the work is to improve the provision of public toilets in the town by 2025 and to bring them in line with the council's climate goals.

This involves refurbishing them and introducing measures to make them more energy efficient.

It is earmarked as part of the council's Five Year Plan, which was approved in January last year.

Tackling loneliness, supporting those in poverty and revamping the council’s youth plan to make sure it meets the needs of the district’s young people post Covid-19 are included in the plan as well as bringing forward new housing sites and a renewed commitment to tackling rough sleeping.
