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

  • I love visiting the N Y moors and coast. We all need toilet facilities. There may be a case to close some during winter. But closure fro Easter to early autumn is hardly going to help the tourist trade.
  • As regular visitors (myself and young family) to the North Yorkshire Moors I can't tell you strongly enough how much we appreciate the public conveniences in the area. It would be a travesty to shut them down. The benefits of helping visitors and tourism to the area surely outweighs the costs involved. Please re-think this plan and keep your public toilets open.
  • I would be lost without the toilets when I visit our beautiful North Yorkshire coastline - I have a health condition which means if the toilets weren't there I wouldn't be able to visit these places, which would be horrible. My partner and I regularly visit Saltburn, Staithes, Runswick Bay, Sandsend and Robin Hoods Bay and I always use the toilets at all of these places. Please don't close any of the toilets, afterall everyone needs to use the toilet, and I would be lost without them.
