Town Centre Toilets

When Sainsbury’s were first granted permission to open the supermarket in the centre of Chertsey the public were assured that a public toilet would be provided and indeed a toilet block was built near the petrol station. However, sadly in the last few years the toilets have suffered vandalism and Sainsbury’s have refused to allow the toilets to remain open. The Chertsey Society has lobbied RBC to either enforce the original agreement or take over the maintenance of the toilet block. Alternatively, RBC could make arrangements with other shops, halls, pubs or clubs to provide public conveniences and give financial compensation for the facilities. In December 2010, RBC granted Sainsbury’s planning permission to rebuild their petrol station kiosk without provision for public toilets.








   Visitors to the town find it amazing that a
   Surrey town the size of Chertsey does not
   have town centre public conveniences.
