Where are the toilets?

September 27, 2010 at 3:14 pm Leave a comment

One huge problem with public toilets, as I see it, is being able to find them.  So what’s the solution?  Well the most obvious would be an online toilet map, and a quick google reveals one! In Australia…

This cannot be done in the UK as there’s no government data about where public toilets are. This is because public toilets are the responsibility of local government, and the (previous) central government thinks that “it would be an excessive reporting requirement for local authorities” to ask them to provide this information.  It seems they think that everyone is happy not to know where the toilets are.

I disagree.
