Swansea Council is continuing its efforts to reopen public facilities previously closed during the coronavirus lock down.

Five more public toilets at Rhossili, Port Eynon, Horton, Singleton Park and Brynmill Park will once again be available for visitors to those locations from July 6.

All facilities will have reduced capacity with limited numbers of toilets available - to ensure social distancing can be managed. 

The latest plans follows on from the reopening of toilets at the city's main bus station, Langland, Caswell and Oystermouth Square.

Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment Enhancement and Infrastructure Management, said: "We recently opened a number of toilets in the city and have monitored how they are being managed and used by the public in respect of social distancing and hygiene.

"I'm pleased we can now look to prepare for reopening further toilets at other keys locations around Swansea and assist in making the lives of our residents a little easier.

"Our main concern is to protect the health and well-being of those wishing to use public toilet facilities.

"While we are opening public toilets we still need the public to be aware the virus is still in circulation and sharing toilet facilities is less safe than using your own toilet at home. Therefore we would urge people to only use the public toilets if they have too, and to prepare and plan their journey before they leave home

"All toilets we reopen will have signs and information to help people use these facilities safely, and I would urge everyone to pay attention to these signs."

The Welsh Government has recently published guidance on public toilets - offering advice to councils and other who own or manage public toilets and how they can be reopened safely during the coronavirus restrictions.

Cllr Thomas added: "I welcome this new guidance. It will hopefully offer the advice and support required by those who manage toilet facilities and enable others to consider reopening toilets in the city."
