Luxford car park toilets which are set to be demolished next year.

Luxford car park toilets to be demolished

Closed public toilets at the top of Luxfords car park in Uckfield are set to be demolished and town councillors favour using the land for additional parking spaces.

Wealden District Council, which owns the building, put forward options for use of the site and asked town councillors for their preference.

The options before a meeting of the town council’s general purposes committee held last night included providing additional car parking, a seating area, cycle racks or a combination of them.

Cllr Diane Ward, Trust Independent, Central, said she would like to see additional parking designated for parent and child spaces because there weren’t any in that car park at the moment.

Cllr Paul Sparks, Liberal Democrat, North, was concerned about the difficulty of enforcement but Cllr Helen Firth, Conservative, Central,said that would just be down to people’s honesty and integrity.

Councillors, who had wanted to re-open the toilets themselves at one stage, agreed they would like the land used for parent and child spaces with a three-hour time limit.

Wealden Council said demolishing the building, possibly next spring or summer, would save the costs of paying for the rates and utilities.
