IPSWICH will spend more than a penny when it splashes out on new 24-hour toilet facilities for the town centre.

The new loos on Old Foundary Road will come complete with full time attendant, shower and parent and baby changing rooms.

It will replace the old toilet block, which was built on the site in 1931.

Project manger Mike Grimwood, of Ipswich Borough Council, said that being caught short in Ipswich will be no inconvenience thanks to the all-new facility.

"The old toilet block had gone beyond an age where we could maintain it or keep it to a standard that was acceptable to the public," he said.

The new facility will include two cubicles with automatic doors to allow for round the clock use and disabled access.

All the paperwork will not be completed, however, until the executive committee of the council meets on February 19.

Built 70 years ago, the loos were upgraded in the 1970s when disabled access was made.

But once their replacement is given the go-ahead, the old block will be demolished.
