An email from City of York Council dated 13.4.21 says: "We are working with First to open the toilets for longer. These toilets have been vandalised on numerous occasions. First did not have the capacity to have someone up at the site until it closes even pre pandemic, which has made them vulnerable to vandalism.
First are addressing this and recognise that with lockdown easing they could see more people coming to the site and have been exploring options for security to prevent or catch the culprits that have been causing the vandalism."
[Image taken 12.4.21] Rawcliffe Bar, York, Park and Ride. The toilets here now have reduced hours. It's not just bus passengers that use them. The leisure area around is Rawcliffe Bar Country Park Alongside the open, green spaces, there's a large play area with a climbing rock and pump tracks. There's a route linking the riverside route (NCN65 and residential areas. Cycling (and walking) groups park here before going for a ride (walk). I am concerned the reduced hours will lead to urban fouling and limit who come here after school and in the evenings. Isn't this a clear example of where a toilet scheme like the one in London Borough of Southwark or the first one I heard of, in the City, is needed?
