A SUPERMARKET has become the first business in Chesterfield to join a retail scheme allowing members of the public to use customer toilets for free.

Morrisons, off Chatsworth Road, is joining the town’s Community Toilet scheme, which aims to provide quality facilities during business hours without the council having the associated maintenance and cleaning costs.

Coun Ian Openshaw said: “It makes sense to tie in with local businesses who already have and maintain quality toilet facilities so the public has access to much-needed services.

“We’d like to encourage other local businesses to come on board with the scheme so we can widen the network of quality toilet facilities in the borough and, hopefully, help to generate additional income for the partners involved.”

The council is appealing for other firms to get in touch and sign up for the scheme.
