Seaford Town Council has confirmed that new toilets are to be constructed over the winter period on the site of the existing Martello toilets.

The new toilets have been designed by local architects Challoner Hall to be easier and less costly to maintain. They consist of seven individual toilets facilities which means that when one is out of action for cleaning or repair, the rest are still available for use.

The design of the building is in keeping with the surroundings, using a coloured render of a similar shade to the next door Martello Tower, with the toilet doors reflecting the colours of the nearby beach huts.

The new facility will be of a much higher standard than the existing facilities with higher quality sanitary ware and two kiosks replacing the existing kiosk which will be relocated to one of the new units. The second kiosk will be rented out to a new business which must be complementary and not be competing with the existing unit.

The new toilets will be cleaned for frequently with extra on-site cleaning during busy periods to ensure the high standards are maintained. They include a dedicated disabled toilet which will be accessed via laser key holders free of charge. The remaining toilets will carry a charge of 20 pence. This is to enable additional cleaning to take place and it also deters vandalism and misuse of the facilities which will also have CCTV all around the outside of the building.

The Town Council will consider the final design at its meeting on the 31st of August following which the tender will be issued to construct the toilets over the winter period. Residents and visitors are encouraged to let the Town Council know their views on the new design by completing the very short survey at the link HERE.
