Green Street Toilets have re-opened to the public

The public toilets at Green Street have re-opened today after being completely refurbished as part of a project which includes the construction of a new fully accessible Changing Places toilet – the first public facility to be provided in the city centre.

Designed for people who are unable to use standard accessible toilets, Changing Places toilets provide additional equipment such as adult sized height adjustable changing benches, height adjustable wash basins, hoists, privacy screens and space for carers.  

The front and sides of the refurbished building, located next to the bus station, have also been transformed with a striking new mural painted by Cornwall artist Jessica Sharville as a further improvement in the public realm in the centre of Truro.

David Rodda, Town Clerk stated that “Truro City Council is committed to meeting the needs of all residents and visitors to the city. As well as providing much improved public toilets in the centre of Truro, the addition of the new Changing Places toilet means people with disabilities and their families will be able to visit the city with confidence that there is access to these types of facilities”.

The refurbishment of the Green Street toilets was supported with funding from the UK Government via the Truro Town Deal.
