The Mayor of London Boris Johnson today, August 12th, called on businesses across London to open their toilets to the public to help ease the problems caused by the lack of public lavatories. The Mayor wants every London borough to sign up to the Community Toilet Scheme, which provides businesses with small grants to open their toilet facilities to the public. The scheme is already running successfully in several boroughs. (…)
The Community Toilet Scheme was started by Richmond Council in 2005. You can find out more at http://www.richmond.gov.uk/community_toilet_scheme including a full list of participating businesses.
