Radlett toilet to be transformed into a tea shop
Radlett residents will soon be able to spend a penny at disused toilets that are being transformed into a tea shop.
Sandwiched between Barclays bank and Radlett Recreation ground, the former disabled lavatory has been crumbling into the bushes for the past ten years.
Hertsmere borough councillor John Graham has been working to get something done with the collapsing conveniences for a number of years.
Cllr Graham, who is responsible for finance, said: “The council lost the key to the toilet.
"It had been gradually disappearing into the trees but we chopped them back recently.
“It’s in a bad state and the roof has fallen off.”
Now Hertsmere Borough Council plans to renovate the facility in Watling Street and install a conservatory on the front.
The majority of the tables would be in the patio area, with the building used for other facilities.
The representative for Aldenham East said the tea shop, when built, would have a pleasant outlook and would be an ideal spot for families with young children, who were playing in the park to come.
Work was due to start this summer, however progress has been hampered as the electricity supply has not yet been turned off.
The power will be cut in early September and councillors hope the facility will be up and running by November.
