Caerphilly toilets refurb welcomed by Plaid Cymru councillors


 Plaid Cymru Councillor Phil Bevan has welcomed news that the long-awaited refurbishment of the public toilets below the Tourist Information Centre (TIC ) in Caerphilly will now go ahead later this month. 

He said “I have worked over a long time on the detail of this project with Caerphilly council officers to make sure we have a facility to be proud of.

“In the meantime, we need to ensure that the works are not too disruptive on nearby businesses, such as the Y Galeri next door.  I am, therefore working with the council and contractors to minimise any negative impact.  

“I was concerned that work should, if possible, not affect the Y Galeri art business and its operation.  I’ve been assured that the potentially most disruptive part of the work will occur when Y Galeri is closed.”

Caerphilly Town Councillor Huw Jackson said: “Often, one of the first things a visitor looks for on arrival in any town is to use the toilet. We must make sure that the first impressions visitors get of Caerphilly is positive!”

Works starts on May 14 and is due to take around eight weeks to complete.
