TOILETS have reopened on Links Road, allowing better facilities to people visiting Prestwick Beach.

The popular toilets - which are fully accessible and include a baby-changing facility - now benefit from new lighting, flooring and a new entrance way fitted with a paddle gate.

There is now a 30 pence charge to use the toilets; however, disabled people can continue to access them free of charge with their RADAR key.

The Council is spending around £200,000 to refurbish a number of public toilets in South Ayrshire.

These are: The Flushes, Girvan; Ainslie Park, Girvan; Links Road, Prestwick; Church Street, Troon; and St. Meddans, Troon.

Councillor Peter Henderson, Resources and Performance Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council, said: “We’re committed to maintaining services and these improvements in Prestwick will make a big difference to locals and visitors.

“To help maintain these public toilets, we have introduced a small service charge in-line with similar projects.”
