Scrutinising Changes to Community Services: Guidance for Local Authorities

In 2011/12, Anglesey County Council’ Environment and Technical Services Scrutiny Committee produced a report on the ‘Future Provision of Public Toilets on Anglesey’4. The report acknowledged that public toilets are “often seen as a lifeline to the elderly community” and that it was therefore vital that older people were consulted with “in relation to any proposed shortlist for closure at an early stage”. Following consultation with older people it was found that awareness about alternative provision was low, and therefore it was recommended that “officers work with existing organisations offering the Public Toilet Grant Scheme to improve signage and promotion of these facilities”.
