A public toilet facility opened in Hailsham town centre eighteen months ago has received more positive feedback from residents and visitors.

The public toilet facility located in the former Cortlandt Stable Block in North Street (opposite the main post office) was opened to the public in August 2014 and comprises two cubicles, one of which is fully wheelchair accessible and includes baby-changing facilities.

The toilets are free to use and are open to the public seven days a week, from 8am to 6pm.

Town Clerk John Harrison said: “Hailsham Town Council acknowledges the importance of public toilet availability and as a result of its commitment to provide clean, safe and accessible toilets, opened the new public toilets in North Street to replace those in Vicarage Field which were maintained and closed by Wealden District Council.”

Commenting on the positive feedback from the public, Mr Harrison added: “Residents and visitors welcomed the opening of the toilets in North Street in 2014 and we have received a lot of positive comments about the facilities since then, particularly about how clean and accessible they are.”

“Hailsham is a growing market town and I’m sure these facilities will continue to be well used by townspeople and visitors.”

The public should be aware that there are other toilet facilities in the town centre including those participating in Wealden District Council’s Community Toilet Scheme (CTS). Those taking part in the scheme in Hailsham are:

  • Freedom Leisure, Vicarage Lane (disabled access/baby changing facilities)
  • Waitrose, Vicarage Field
  • Callenders Restaurant, 80/82 High Street
  • Costa Coffee, 26B High Street (disabled access/baby changing facilities)
