East Lindsey District Council's Portfolio Holder for Operational Services, Councillor Sandra Harrison, said: "I am pleased to be able to say that East Lindsey District Council is investing in refurbishing these public toilets. By making this investment we will significantly improve the quality of the public toilet provision in our District for local people and visitors to the area."
Juliet Slater, Woodhead Group Team Leader for the Lincolnshire region, said: "Across the East Lindsey District of Lincolnshire the public toilets are extremely important for local residents and visitors alike. Visitor footfall increases during the annual seasonal holiday periods, so this necessary refurbishment work has been planned around these dates to provide the least disruption possible to users."
