Residents and visitors to East Cambridgeshire District Council now have the chance to have their say on the review into Public Conveniences in the district.

The review began earlier this year by assessing the current state of the nine toilets in Ely, Littleport, Burwell and Fordham which currently cost over £200,000 a year and looked at how other areas are managing their toilets.

One of the ways many District Councils across the country fund their public conveniences is through a charge to fund improved facilities.
