We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Require local authorities to provide public toilets

Public toilets are essential for a healthy and inclusive society. They provide a safe and sanitary place for people to relieve themselves, regardless of their income or social status.

More details

The lack of public toilets disproportionately affects people who are sick or disabled, the elderly, women, people who work outside, and the homeless.

However, public toilets are rapidly disappearing in the UK and it is reported that 2,000 public toilets (a third of the total) have closed in England and Wales in the last 20 years.

The Government should make it a legal requirement for local authorities to provide and maintain suitable, safe, clean and appropriately located Public Toilets.

We need to act now to keep public toilets open.
