East Cambridgeshire District Council has launched a trial of public toilets in Ely’s award winning Country Park.

The trial, which lasts from July until September to cover the school summer holidays, follows consultation with the people who use the park who said toilets were the number one thing they would like to see installed.

The toilets, which consist of three portable units (male, female and baby changing/disabled), will be cleaned and stocked daily by an external cleaning company and will be open between 8am and 6pm.

With Stagecoach taking over the Norfolk Green AbsolutELY bus service in Ely from April, the service is to be renamed the number 15.

Last year, the service, which helps residents get to work, shop in the city centre or catch up with friends, had its financial support extended until February 2017.
 
With passenger numbers rising year on year – in 2012/13, the annual number of journeys was 40,285 and in 2013/14 this rose to 50,807 – East Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council agreed in Autumn 2014 to continue the service.

With the changes at East Cambridgeshire District Council recently completed, the Boundary Commission has now confirmed it is to review the number of Councillors at the authority.

Earlier this year, the District Council asked the Commission to consider proposals to reduce the authority from 39 to 27 members in time for the election in May 2019.

The Commission has this week confirmed it will proceed with a review of this idea in the next financial year.
