Question 20/24


The public conveniences/toilets at Cooden Beach Station have been closed/boarded up.


When will they reopen? as i am sure that you are aware, there are no conveniences at the station.

Your webpage about this situation does not open.


Cooden Sea Road toilets are located near to both the beach and the railway station. Unfortunately. when they were open they suffered constant vandalism and abuse through ‘cottaging’ which proved difficult to prevent, despite police intervention. It was therefore felt that this was a facility that would be closed on a trial basis and this decision was supported by the consultation.

There are no plans for RDC to open these toilets at present and I would suggest approaching the town council or network rail to see if they may wish to take these facilities over and open them if they feel local residents or commuters require these facilities. We are very open to discussing this with the town council or interested community groups.

Despite the closures, RDC still has 13 public conveniences open across the district. For more information, please visit our website using the links below.
