Stop North York Moors Public Toilet Closures

Stop North York Moors Public Toilet Closures

Please abandon your plan to close public toilets in the following areas of the Borough and North York Moors National Park:-

Castleton, Danby, Egton Bridge, Glaisedale, Grosmont, Lealholm, Ruswarp, Robin Hood's Bay and Runswick Bay.

Why is this important?

There are already many millions of visitors to the area each year, hikers, cyclists and motorists, a number which Scarborough Borough Council's Tourism Strategy is seeking to increase. The removal of public toilets in this area will leave many people in distress and will discourage tourism in the area.

Reasons for signing

  • Closing public toilets in a tourist area is counterproductive. If people are put off from visiting in future the local economy loses out. Scarborough Borough Council need to wake up.
  • As a visitor, and with children, you know how important public toilets are.
  • I walk with someone who has to plan his route to go via public toilets so that he can empty his colostomy bag.
