The public toilet block in King Street East Grinstead is looking smarter now after a joint initiative by East Grinstead Town Council and Mid Sussex District Council to tidy the areas to the front and side.
Grant funding from section 106 contributions allowed for attractive resurfacing of the raised brick seating, improved hard landscaping and a large planter. East Grinstead Town Council funded the wooden surround for the planter, plants and undertook the works to complete the project.
The Town Council’s outdoor services team prepared and regenerated the raised beds, the handyman re-painted and improved the appearance of the base of the CCTV camera post and the head gardener planted and mulched all beds and planter.
Hanging baskets which will be replanted to remain in place during the autumn and winter complete the transformation which has already garnered praise from traders in King Street and local residents.
#Under Section 106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, contributions can be sought from developers towards the costs of providing community and social infrastructure. This funding is commonly known as ‘Section 106‘.
