Just in case people are not aware:
Leighton Moss has partially re-opened.

There are various accessible routes in place to mitigate social distancing concerns.
The hides, visitor centre, shop, cafe and toilets remain closed.

The reserve is currently open between 9.30am - 5pm ONLY. The car park is closed outside of these hours.

The car park and hides at the Eric Morecambe complex remain closed.

For further info please see the website or our Facebook or Twitter pages.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Leighton Moss soon!

Whilst doing some paid work in Morecambe during the lockdown, toilets were a real issue. They have also been a serious issue during recent mass breakouts of chavs hitting the countryside with mess behind bushes less publicised than the portable barbecues

Is it not possible to hire three or four one person at a time portable loos and put them round the back of the building so they are not used by every passing AONB visitor? I would have thought that this should be a minimum provision for an re-opening. Alternatively you stress that the reopening visits must be short in duration so there is not a build up of long stayers who will need the loo and also add to C19 risk?

Btw in the days of the single portaloo, the flushing cord kept snapping. Guess who was often tasked to repair it when I worked there and imagine the risk assessment that would entail these days!

Difficult. All surfaces touched by a person would have to be cleaned after use - toilet handles, door handles, taps etc. People would have to wear face coverings in case they coughed or sneezed while in the room. With the number of new cases of C-19 still in the thousands every day and many people being asymptomatic it's too big a risk at the moment.
