Demolition of the old public toilets in Parrock Street will start on September 7

A long-standing eyesore on the main route into Gravesend is to be removed.

Works to demolish the old public toilets in Parrock Street will start on September 7 and are expected to take about three weeks to complete.

During the demolition work the public footpath will be closed at the Milton Road and Parrock Street junction and the borough council says ‘there should be little or no disruption to traffic’.

The loos, which date back to the early 20th century, were closed decades ago due to poor access and the rising cost of maintenance.

The building was sold in 2008 but as no successful planning application came forward the Gravesham Council bought it back in order to improve the appearance of the area.
