– Public Conveniences

Following the Isle of Wight Council’s closure of all the Island’s public toilets in 2016 Ryde Town Council decided to take on the ownership, management and operation of Ryde’s toilets.

These are located at:

Appley Park

Eastern Gardens

St John’s Road

Each block has an accessible toilet and Appley and Eastern have baby changing facilities.

The toilets are cleaned and inspected on a daily basis throughout the year.

Between 1 June and 30 September an operative attends the public conveniences located along the Esplanade on a continuous cleaning rota beginning at 11am and finishing at 6pm every day.

Ryde Town Council takes Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously and a range of statutory inspections are carried out including electrical and legionella.

The maintenance plan can be viewed by clicking here FACILITIES MANAGEMENT PROTOCOL.

The Town Council uses the Radar key scheme, as promoted by Disability Rights UK, for all its accessible facilities.  Keys for Ryde’s accessible toilets (and for Nettlestone and Seaview’s accessible toilets at Puckpool), are available from the Town Council’s offices in Lind Street. A small charge may be made for the key and staff may ask to see proof of your disability.

Should you have any concerns about the cleanliness or appearance of the toilets you should contact the Town Council during office hours (Monday – Friday, 9am to 4pm) on 01983 811105 or out of hours on 01983 861997.
