Public Toilets

Bedford Borough Council provides a number of public toilets throughout the Borough.

There are two types of toilets for use by the public:

  1. Toilets that are attended by cleansing attendants,some on a roaming rota and others on a 2 hourly visit.
  2. Toilets which clean automatically, where the public pay to use the facility.

Changing Places

Bedford's River Street multi-storey car park has a Changing Places disabled persons' toilet.

 

Radar Toilet Key

A Radar Toilet Key allows people living with a disability access to use disabled toilet facilities nationwide. The Royal Association for Disability Rights (RADAR) is a national charity that campaigns for the rights of the 11 million people in the UK with a lived experience of disability or health conditions and the Radar key scheme fits into the charity's objectives to promote freedom and choice so disabled people can lead the life they choose.  

 

Who can get a toilet key?

There is no requirement to prove details of disability.  Parents and carers can apply on behalf of disabled children.  Husbands and wives can apply on behalf of each other.  Residents of ‘care homes’ and those consider to have a mental illness can also qualify.

 

The keys are given on trust that the applicant considers himself / herself or the person they are applying on behalf of to be disabled. The above is the adopted policy by RADAR. 

 

With effect from 1st November 2015 we are starting to charge for RADAR Keys:

New Users - £2.50

Cost for lost/missing keys - £6.00

 

How can I apply?
