The Chairman of Lichfield District Council has cut the ribbon on two brand new toilets in Lichfield city centre.

On Tuesday 11 August 2020 Lichfield District Council opened two new toilets at Lichfield bus station.

The Healthmatic facilities offer two unisex toilets, one of which has disabled access and a baby changer. The toilets will be open every day from 7am to 7pm.

The replacement toilets have been installed as part of the council’s Birmingham Road site improvement project, which has seen Lichfield’s old police station and bus station buildings demolished, the creation of extra coach parking, the bus station refreshed and landscaping. It will also see a new long-stay car park opening soon.

Councillor Joe Powell, Chairman of Lichfield District Council, said:

“At a time when many local authorities have closed public toilets, it is great news that the bus station has these smart new facilities, which I was happy to formally open.

“Our Birmingham Road site improvement project is nearing completion, and we are all looking forward to final phase of the car park opening up soon.

“When finished, these short-term improvements will make the area safer, more useful and attractive, and provide a better route into the city from the train and bus stations. This will allow us time to work on our plans for the long-term future of this key area.”
