About the Community Toilets Scheme

Eastbourne has a number of public toilets as well as a Community Toilets Scheme, in which generous businesses welcome use of customer toilets by the public when needed.

Some of these are accessible. All are marked on this map with information showing which are accessible, open times etc.

If you are a local business or know of a business that has a customer toilet and would like to join the scheme or find out more please contact us at gaynorsadlo@icloud.com.

Inclusive Eastbourne and Eastbourne Access Group are working together with this local project.
