Disused Tadley toilet block to be demolished
A toilet block in central Tadley is set to be demolished.
The block – on the corner of Mulfords Hill and Franklin Avenue – is no longer in use and is judged to be surplus to requirements by the borough council.
The council has submitted plans to demolish the block, and it is likely to be done later this month.
The borough council had offered Tadley Town Council the chance to take over management of the block, but the council had declined as it felt that the toilets were largely being used by people in transit rather than local residents.
Additionally, as there are public toilets in the Sainsbury's on Mulfords Hill, it felt if people were cut short then they could still go there.
The toilets were closed around two years ago and haven’t been open since.
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council is in the process of removing toilet blocks around the borough from its management in an effort to save costs.
In Kingsclere, the parish council has agreed to take over the running of the block in Swan Street, and negotiations over a sale are ongoing.
