Community Toilet Scheme

The Community Toilet Scheme allows the Council to work in partnership with local businesses to improve the provision of toilet facilities for the public. It provides cleaner, safer and more accessible toilets in Royston Town Centre.  

How the Scheme Works

The Council and selected local businesses sign an agreement to allow the public to use their toilets during normal opening hours and without the need to make a purchase. The Council will continue to find other businesses to expand the scheme and increase provision for everyone which includes businesses that are DDA compliant.

Participating Community Toilet Scheme members will display a sign on their windows to identify the type of facilities available.

Expected Standards and Inspection 

As part of the Community Toilet Scheme agreement, the business agree to maintain the toilets in a clean and hygienic condition, with adequate toilet rolls, soap and hand driers/hand towels.  

The Council will undertake regular inspections of all toilets in the scheme. In addition, there may be random "spot checks" at the Council's discretion. 


Royston Town Council encourages all local businesses to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act. The information on this page is subject to change. It is correct at the time of writing in April 2018. To find out more, please contact the council.
