Community Toilet Scheme

Community Toilet Scheme

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.

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 open and participating in the Community Toilet Scheme. 

Please note that there may be restrictions in place in these premises due to the mitigation of risks brought about by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. If you have any queries please check with the premises before making your journey.
