Great Malvern's most-used toilets set to reopen after £176,000 revamp to make them eco-friendly

THE MOST-used toilet block in Great Malvern is set to reopen after the extensive works to make it eco-friendly were completed.

The public conveniences on Grange Road will open tomorrow (Friday) in time for the bank holiday weekend.

The impressive renovation, which started in April this year, was part of a £176,000 eco-friendly project from Malvern Hills District Council.

The works formed part of the council’s Five Year Plan to invest in the refurbishment of five town centre toilets by 2025 and reduce the council’s own use of electricity and water.




The use of electricity will be reduced through the installation of LED Lights and integrated solar panels linked to a hybrid battery system within the building. The toilet block will run off this rather than the mains electricity.

As well as this, low flush toilets have been installed which will result in less water usage.


Further improvements include a complete redecoration, new wall and floor tiles, ambulant cubicles in both toilets, the refurbishment of the disabled toilets and Dyson Air Taps.

Coun Peter Whatley, Portfolio Holder for Resources at Malvern Hills District Council said: “We are really pleased with the results of this eco-friendly project, not only is the refurbishment beneficial for the environment, but it is great for visitors and residents too.”
