CDC bowled over by loo awards!
Release date: 17 December 2015
Cotswold District Council is flushed with success following the award of two platinum and two gold awards to public conveniences in the District - Church Rooms, Bourton-on-the- Water; Maugersbury Road, Stow on the Wold; Brewery, Cirencester; and Bibury.
This ‘chain of awards’ ensured that the Council qualified for a Champions League Standards of Excellence award at this year’s Loo of the Year ceremony at St Johns Hotel, Solihull, in front of over 300 guests.
Commenting on this achievement, CDC Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Partnerships Cllr Chris Hancock said:
“We are delighted that our public conveniences achieved such high standards. The Cotswolds is a major tourist destination, and it is important to ensure that visitors can access good quality toilet facilities when they are far away from their own homes. We are also mindful that local residents benefit from having a good range of high quality public conveniences, especially at a time when many local authorities are cutting back on provision. For us at Cotswold, this remains a number one – and dare I also say number two? – priority.”
