East Devon District Council (EDDC) is inviting offers to let the public loos in Station Road, Budleigh Salterton. 

The council is looking for alternative uses for the toilet block, which could include a café/takeaway outlet; bike hire facility; studio; eco hub or community hub. To change the loos into anything else, you would need to apply for planning permission.

EDDC says on the advert: "Alternative uses are suggested which have a positive impact on community relations, such as community hub or café where people can come together and where the public can still access a public toilet.

"All fit-outs and building proposals to use sustainable materials, be energy efficient and are low carbon.

"The property is to be let in a serviceable condition with no serious outstanding defects. All outstanding works will be agreed between the parties prior to occupation. I

"f a building component is broken, it will be repaired, but anything that is dated or in poor condition but functioning adequately, will not be replaced, renewed or improved by the EDDC."

Further credit will be given if the offer provides some form of toilet for non-customers, if improvements are made to the baby change facilities that all genders can access, or if the design includes a dry and clean place to put/hang medical equipment. 

All applications must be received (in full) by the close of business on Friday, September 15, 2023.

Viewing the property can be arranged by prior appointment with the Property Services Department by calling 01395 571589 or email Property@eastdevon.gov.uk
