Other public toilets
How often we clean and service our public toilets, depends on where it is and how much they are used. In very busy areas, some are cleaned several times a day, whilst others may only need servicing once a day.
To avoid vandalism, the majority of our sites have limited opening times and are closed at night.

The National Key Scheme, sometimes known as the RADAR Scheme, was developed because some public toilets designed for disabled people had to be locked to prevent damage and misuse. The radar key scheme offers independent access to disabled people to around 4,000 locked public toilets around the country.
The economy radar key looks like a normal key and therefore can be discreetly carried along with other keys. The key can be purchased by anybody with a disability (no proof of disability required).
