Dunstable Town Council is thrilled to announce Ashton Square Toilets has retained the prestigious Platinum Award for Loo of the Year 2023.

This fantastic achievement of a Platinum Award reflects Dunstable Town Council’s unwavering commitment to providing the highest standards, and dedication to upholding cleanliness, accessibility, and overall excellence of public toilet facilities to its residents and visitors.

The Loo of the Year Awards is a nationally recognised competition that celebrates the very best public toilets. It is considered the ‘washroom standard’ and is an established benchmark of washroom provision and compliance with national standards.

Ashton Square Toilets offers a welcoming and hygienic environment, accessible to all including disabled access, a free Aunt Flow sanitary dispenser in the women’s toilets, accessible children’s steps for the sinks, family toilet seats and baby changing facilities in both female and male toilets.

Town Centre Manager, Annette Clynes, and the Town Rangers have been instrumental in ensuring that Ashton Square Toilets are maintained to the highest standards. Their hard work, attention to detail, and dedication have undoubtedly played a crucial role in retaining this prestigious Platinum Award recognition.

Dunstable Town Mayor Cllr Liz Jones expressed her delight and gratitude for the Platinum Award, saying, “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our Town Centre Manager and our Town Rangers. It also highlights the commitment of Dunstable Town Council to providing our residents and visitors with the best public conveniences possible. We are immensely proud of this achievement and will continue our efforts to maintain the highest standards for our community.”
