|The Royal Borough of
Kensington and Chelsea provide temporary toilets for
Carnival participants and visitors. These consist of
chemical toilets and pissoir type urinals. Two permanent
manned toilet sites are also open for Carnival.
The Council will provide
266 Chemical toilets and 5 pissoir/urinal type toilets for
male visitors. There will also be a number of wheelchair
To site these toilets some
resident bays and Pay and Display bays must be suspended.
The Council places prominent parking suspension signs in the
affected areas giving residents advance notice of the
temporary loss of parking. Once the toilets are in place,
the Council will check each site and remove any suspension
notices that are no longer needed.
To assist the public to
find the toilets over 100 signs are attached to lampposts
pointing to the direction of the nearest toilet.
During the Carnival, two
officers are employed to monitor all toilets. They ensure
the sites are open and are clean. Two plumbers are also
employed to carry out repairs and ensure the all the
appliances function properly.
Toilet Hire UK and Best Loo
Ltd., provide staff for the temporary toilets and the two
permanent facilities from 10.00 am to 10.00 pm. Their role
is to keep the toilets secure, clean, ensure all consumables
are replenished and that defects are reported for repair.
The supplier will maintain
the Chemical toilets and they will be cleansed every hour.
The Pissoir/Urinal facilities will also be monitored.
