…The 756 toilets of Scotland and Northern Ireland

February 13, 2014 at 7:58 pm 1 comment

This follows on from the previous post, where I trawled the council websites of England and Wales and found just under 5000 public and community toilets.

I’ve quickly searched through the district and borough councils of Scotland and Northern Ireland, and can add another 756 toilets to the count, made up of 706 public toilets and 50 in community toilet schemes.

The community toilet schemes are all in Scotland, where they’re known as ‘comfort schemes’. I found 5 listed, but I expect there are more.

Northern Ireland will also have more loos, but the council websites are a disappointment for the average toilet-hunter. I only found toilets listed in 11 of 26 borough council websites, and only one passing reference to a toilet scheme.

    This must have taken a huge amount of time to compile Gail, and I admire your perseverance. It would be good if all Local Authorities could be encouraged to have standardised public toilet information page on their websites.
