 Message from Lord-Lieutenant of the East Riding of Yorkshire:


 Howden Public Toilets to Re-open 
 Received from East Riding of Yorkshire Council:

In line with recent changes to Government advice, the Council plans to re-open the remaining public conveniences across the East Riding of Yorkshire, to provide clean toilet and hand-washing facilities, due to an expected increase in footfall from people visiting non-essential shops and other facilities opening on Monday, 15 June 2020.

We have taken this step for public health reasons, to protect the local environment and to maintain appropriate public behaviour.
Further, we have taken into consideration the needs of those people with disabilities who will also visit the area.
We have increased our cleaning operation, and will be using signs to advise people to wash their hands, and keep a safe distance from others.

From next week, the Council is re-opening the toilets at: 
Howden (Mon-Sun)
Charles Briggs Avenue, Hailgate, Howden, DN14 7SX

We continue to urge people not to travel without a reasonable excuse, and to stay local to where they live. However, we are continuing to monitor the situation on-the-ground in our Town Centres and visitor attractions, and will look to take additional steps, should they be required, to protect the public as we move towards the Summer.

Director of Communities and Environment
