Public Toilets

We operate 7 public toilets in and around Penzance town centre and the Newlyn Harbour Public Toilets.

About our Public Toilets

We took over the running of 6 public toilets in Penzance from Cornwall Council in 2016 to make sure that they would stay open.

Since then, we have invested over £50,000 to improve the facilities and we have employed a local cleaning contractor to maintain them.

In 2021 we also took over the running of the Newlyn Public Toilets from the Newlyn Harbour Authority. We’ve already had positive feedback about the improvements in hygiene and we hope that our planned improvement works will also be well received by residents and visitors to Newlyn.

Community Toilet Scheme

The Penzance Community Toilet Scheme has been developed in partnership with local community-focused businesses to help boost our existing public toilet services.

We currently work with 13 local businesses to provide Community Toilets across the Parish, including Penzance, Newlyn, Heamoor and Gulval.
