BWA is concerned that the failure to provide adequate public toilets in Bristol severely undermines the walking environment in the city.
The lack of suitable toilet facilities has serious consequences for the physical and mental health of individuals concerned and an impact on the city as a whole. The provision of toilet facilities should be considered in the wider context of economic wellbeing, quality of life, public health, equalities and inclusion.
A complete solution is not straightforward and we do not propose one, but we make suggestions in this paper for consideration by local policy makers, practitioners and relevant organisations.
The paper includes a list of useful references to existing and potential toilet provision.
