Agreement reached on Devonshire Square public toilets

Council bosses have welcomed a decision that will see Devonshire Square public toilets reopen to the public on Saturday.

At a meeting on Wednesday, Bexhill-on-Sea Town Council approved proposals to pay the costs associated with re-opening and operating the facility while negotiating a lease with Network Rail.  The town council also agreed to take forward a lease for Channel View East toilets.

The Devonshire Square toilets were among those temporarily closed in November by Rother District Council due to an expected £3.8 million shortfall in its 2024/25 budget.

Cllr Doug Oliver, leader of Rother District Council said: “I’m delighted that Bexhill-on-sea Town Council has taken the decision to fund the running of these toilets for the good of the local community. I’d like to thank the town councillors and officers and we look forward to building on this extremely positive step to protect services in Bexhill.”
