A TOWN centre bus station looks set to undergo a programme of improvements.

Flintshire Council's cabinet members will be asked to approve an upgrade to the existing toilet facilities at Mold's Bus Station when it meets on Tuesday.

After a review of toilet facilities in Flintshire, which concluded there would be a single high quality public convenience in Mold located at King Street Bus Station, cabinet agreed that the New Street public convenience would close - if the town council did not wish to take on the management of the facility, which the town council chose not to do.

Both the town and county councils have been working closely on the project and have designed a plan to improve the facility in King Street Bus Station and extend the parking availability at New Street car park, facilitated by the demolition of the existing public convenience facility.

Councillor Carolyn Thomas, Flintshire Council’s cabinet member for streetscene and countryside, said: “This project will see the existing King Street toilet facility upgraded to a high standard.

"The council is also promoting the use of existing toilets in council buildings, such as libraries and Connects Centres, which people feel more confident and comfortable using.

“The New Street toilet block will make way for the redesign and resurfacing of New Street car park to accommodate a further 15 spaces, including two electric car charging points.”

If approved, the scheme will be subjected to public consultation exercise and further discussions will be held with the bus operators operating from Mold bus station.
