Talking to residents, it is clear that many wish to see new public toilets being constructed in the towns neighbourhood shopping centres. Increasing footfall to such centres must form part of the Council’s plan to reduce the reliance on the use of cars when residents shop. It is clear that for many residents a barrier to shopping locally rather than in the town centre is the lack of public toilets.

As the number of older residents in the town increases, the need for public toilets can only increase. The Harlow Alliance Party will do all that it can to see public toilets opened in locations across the town.
