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

  • It's a short sighted proposal. Visitors will stop coming if there are no facilities, businesses will close and council income will fall.
  • We all need a toilet. Why would you discourage tourism? I was pleased to find and use this toilet today.
  • In order to prosper this area needs visitors and visitors need public toilets, especially children and the elderly. The area already has poor job prospects and without tourism will go into decline. Not everyone can afford to use cafe or pub facilities when they need to pee!
