Toilet standards

Closed 25 Jul 2018

Opened 4 Jul 2018


Allerdale Borough Council is consulting on a revised guidance for toilet standards in cafes and restaurants.

The proposed new standard will be applied to all new premises, newly converted premises and those undergoing substantial refurbishment (for example subject to alteration, refitting, upgrading, extension or change of use). It will also apply to premises seeking a pavement licence for the first time. Existing premises that rely on toilets not in their control, for example public toilets, is dealt with below. Given that the new standard does not vary significantly from the previous 1995 standard as applied to small cafes and similar premises, it is expected that the vast majority of existing premises, established since 1995 will already comply anyway.
