Public Conveniences


​​The Community Toilet Scheme is a partnership between Derry City & Strabane District Council and a number of local businesses across the Council area which allows members of the public to use their toilet facilities for free during normal opening hours without having to make a purchase.

​​The initiative ensures that clean, safe and easily accessible toilets are available to the public at no cost. Participating businesses are paid an annual fee by Council based on the facilities they have available.

Businesses providing separate facilities for male, female, disabled and baby changing would receive a higher rate of payment than a business who provides just one unisex toilet.

Whilst businesses must make their toilet facilities available to members of the public, they retain the right to refuse entry to any person(s) who would normally be refused entry to the premises.

The following premises are currently participating in the Community Toilet Scheme. 

We will update this webpage as soon as possible with accurate opening details for each premises, but in the meantime please check with the premises before making your journey.
