Our Community Toilet Scheme provides clean, safe and accessible public toilets in more convenient locations for residents and visitors.

The scheme operates in Borehamwood, Bushey, Bushey Heath, Potters Bar, and Radlett. Under the scheme, you can use toilets in certain premises for free, without having to make a purchase or use their services. 

How does the scheme work?

Local businesses are paid a small annual fee, between £600 and £1,000 to allow people to use their toilets during their normal opening hours. This fee is dependent on the facilities offered by the business. All community toilets are regularly inspected by our officers to ensure they meet appropriate standards. 

Participating premises will display one of the following stickers in their window to indicate the facilities offered:

Community Toilet Scheme stickers with icons for toilet types including men, woman, disabled and baby facilities.
