Could you spend a penny and bring these public loos back to life?

This story is over

Fancy spending a penny on a public loo? North East Lincolnshire Council has put the boating lake public toilets in Cleethorpes up for lease.

Expressions of interest are invited for the premises – including bids from charities and community groups.

Nestled amongst the trees with views across the Cleethorpes Boating Lake, this unique find includes male and female WCs along with fully accessible Changing Places toilets.

The cottage-like brick building comes with more than 400 square metres of grounds.

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this one-off property.

Given its prime location by the Cleethorpes Boating Lake, these don’t have to be bog standard public conveniences.

The site could be run solely as public toilets or it could be converted into another venture, as long as the toilets remain open to the public.

A rent price has not been specified, however interested parties are invited to make an offer.

In West London, for instance, a public toilet also houses a florist’s shop, in Osaka, Japan, one was used as a hotel room, and in St Louis, Missouri, a WC doubles as a tornado shelter.

And at festivals and in other parts of the world public toilets are being used to generate power.

Councillor Peter Wheatley, portfolio holder responsible for assets, said: “The area’s other public toilets were put out to tender last year and a contract will be offered soon to the successful bidder.

“We’re marketing the Boating Lake toilets separately and we see this is a great opportunity for a private company, charity or community group to step in and give them a new lease of life.”
