This will involve totally new Ladies / Gents toilets and a new Disabled facility. It is hoped that the work will commence early to mid-October.
The work will be funded from Henfield Parish Council (HPC) reserves and recently secured Section 106 funding of just over £37.5K from Horsham District Council.
It is anticipated that the works will take approximately 12 weeks and the existing toilet facilities will be closed for this period. There will be temporary toilets available in the library car park for the duration of the works. HPC asks residents to bear with it during this time.
Whilst the renovation of the public conveniences is well overdue, it is hoped that once complete, they will encourage additional visitors to Henfield High Street and provide much improved facilities for local residents.
The Parish Council is to be congratulated for finally getting funding for this long overdue refurbishment. Several previous attempts have foundered on lack of funding, or unacceptable planning constraints.
It is also clear that the move of Hawthorn Veterinary Surgery into the old Barclays Bank building is about to happen.
