Unlock Bristol's Public Toilets!

ACORN members and the people of Bristol rely on our public toilets. We rely on them for our basic dignity at work, in our leisure time or travelling around our city. They are essential for those of us with disabilities, those with bowel and bladder conditions, those of us without a home, and the elderly.

ACORN members and the people of Bristol rely on our public toilets. We rely on them for our basic dignity at work, in our leisure time or travelling around our city. They are essential for those of us with disabilities, those with bowel and bladder conditions, those of us without a home, and the elderly. We deserve a city that we can live and work in, without fear of the indignity of being caught short. It is not simply an inconvenience for us - public toilets are a necessity.

Many of our public toilets were closed across the city in 2018. Some toilets were sold off, and some toilets were left derelict and locked. The Council replaced them with a ‘Community Toilet Scheme’ but many of these toilets are not up to scratch and this has left many areas of Bristol without nearby toilet access.

We call on Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees and Cabinet Member for Public Health Ellie King to reopen the public toilets that were closed in:

  1. Greville Smyth Park

  2. Mina Rd Park

  3. Colston Avenue 

  4. Fishponds Park

  5. Greystoke Avenue

  6. The Bearpit

  7. Bridgewater Rd/Bedminster Common

  8. Blackboy Hill

  9. Shirehampton (Station Rd)

We also call on them to undertake a review into the provision of public toilets in the city.
