A public toilet block at Harwich Quay has reopened following a £30,000 refurbishment.

Tendring District Council (TDC) has given the facility a new lease of life - including a new granite-style interior decorated with pictures of the area.

New all-in-one soap, water and hand drier units have also been installed and the area outside has been paved and landscaped.

Mick Skeels, TDC cabinet member for leisure and tourism said: “These new-look facilities are light, clean and a real asset for the area. The Quay at Harwich is a tourist area, with a number of attractions nearby, and one set to become more popular as the Mayflower 400 celebrations gear-up for 2020.

“However, this amenity is just example of our longer-term strategy for public toilets, where we have closed down some lesser-used facilities which cost a lot to maintain in areas where there are nearby alternatives and invested in upgrading our remaining loos.”
