Visitors to Minster Leas beach can now use the brand-new toilet block near the promenade.

Swale Borough Council has invested more than £100,000 to install the brand-new toilet block earlier this year and they are now open to the public.

Council leader Roger Truelove, cabinet member for environment Julian Saunders, and local councillors attended last week to declare the toilets officially open.

Cllr Roger Truelove, leader at the council, said:

“We want to make the most of our attractions and encourage people to visit, spend and support the local economy.

“There has been a clear need for toilets at this end of The Leas for many years, and by investing in quality facilities like these we hope to see more people enjoying the attractions we have on our doorstep.”

Cllr Julian Saunders, cabinet member for the environment at the council, said:

“We installed the brand-new toilet block at Minster Leas to improve amenities for visitors and residents from around the borough.

“The modular toilet block has one female, one male and one disabled cubicle, with a grass sedum covered roof to help it blend in with the surrounding area and bring environmental benefits.

“Minster Leas is a popular location for residents and tourists, especially now international travel is restricted, and more people are holidaying at our beaches.

“This is part of our ongoing programme to improve public amenities around the borough and it’s encouraging to see how much it is being used, and to hear positive messages about their quality.”
