Save Our Loos - We demand the reopening of Westgate Loos in Lincoln

We demand that the Public Toilets on Westgate are reopened with immediate effect, local residents and visitors to the City of Lincoln need them back and their extended closure is unacceptable. Using covid to close them temporarily and now making that closure permanent is unacceptable.

Why is this important?

Please support our campaign to save our Westgate public loos, the city council shut them during the first covid lockdown for our safety? But they have now decided to permanently close them to save money. Claiming that there are plenty of pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops that have loos and they will let people use them. We have had the Westgate loos for decades and they have always been much used by residents and visitors to the city. They are award winning loos, conveniently located by the main car parks uphill. The assumption that we can all walk far enough and fast enough to go from cafe to cafe and beg to use the loos is unacceptable and would be a humiliating experience. I was astonished to hear the councillor suggest that, rather than continuing to do their job and provide public facilities for all. I feel we all need to stand up to each and every council who tries to use covid to close our public loos, please help us save our loos.

Reasons for signing

  • Public Toilets attached to main car parks are a 'lifeline' to motorhome owners, visiting towns. An additional Elsan Point on the outside wall, and connected to the sewage system is all that is required., along with a water tap & hose to rinse our cassette tanks. An Honesty box would provide extra income to the Council that could be used for the upkeep of the toilet block on site.
  • Why not add a simple motorcaravan waste point that are in much demand through the UK. Not only does this support the funding of the toilets but attracts year round visitors to the area. These are commonplace throughout Europe but still rare in the UK
  • These toilets can be part funded by adding a simple motorcaravan waste point that are in much demand through the UK. Not does support the funding of the toilets but attracts year round visitors to the area. These are commonplace throughout Europe but atill rare in the UK
