Temporary toilets are to be opened on the promenade for the summer season.
A statement from Arun District Council, released today, revealed the facilities will be in place of the current underground facilities.
“They will be located east of Arun District Council’s Foreshores Office,” it added.
The decision has been made to close the underground toilets ‘due to their unsuitable location and recurring misuse’, the council said.
Plans for ‘new, modern standard, above-ground toilets with disabled facilities’ are currently ‘in the design stage’, the statement added, ‘and are set to be opened in time for the 2018 summer season’.
Karl Roberts, Director of Place at Arun District Council, said: “We recognise that the underground toilets do not offer the best experience for visitors to the seafront and are not accessible to all.
“For this reason, the decision has been made to fund new, above-ground toilets on the promenade, and plans are currently being drawn up for the new facilities.”
