To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what recent assessment his Department has made of the adequacy of provision of public toilets in England; and what plans his Department has to help ensure there is an adequate provision of public toilets across the country.
1 February 2022
Local authorities are best placed to make decisions about public toilet provision in their localities. The provisional Local Government Finance Settlement for 2022-23 makes available an additional £3.5 billion to councils, including funding for adult social care reform. This is an increase in local authority funding for 2022-23 of over 4% in real terms, which will ensure councils across the country have the resources they need to deliver local services.
