A PUBLIC toilet is getting a major revamp to make it accessible for the whole community.

Work on the public toilets in Grey’s Road car park, Henley has now started. The toilets will feature a 'Space to Change' – a specially designed area featuring a wheelchair accessible toilet and a height adjustable adult-sized changing bench and hoist.

The refurbishment will also include three new separate toilets and there will also be a new welfare room for car park inspectors and a storage area.

The £145,000 work is being paid for and carried out by South Oxfordshire District Council. £45,000 of this figure will come from Community Infrastructure Levy contributions the council secured from housing developers to help fund community facilities.

The refurbishment is expected to take eight weeks and while the work is being carried out, the toilets at Grey’s Road will be closed. Alternative facilities are available in Kings Road car park, next to Waitrose.
