As detailed in the recommendations.


Councillor Thomas introduced the Public Convenience in Mold Town Centre report which provided details of the proposals for the scheme for Mold.


            The review that had been undertaken confirmed that a single high quality and well maintained facility should be provided in Mold Town Centre and that the facility should be located in the Bus Station in King Street which would support the Council’s aspirations for the Transport Hub which was being developed at the site.  Mold Town Council had been given the opportunity to take on the management of the New Street facility and was currently being considered.


            Given that there would be significant costs in bringing the New Street facility up to a suitable standards, the Town Council had agreed to work with the County Council to improve the facilities in King Street and utilise the land currently occupied by the New Street facility to the benefit of the residents in the town by increasing the car parking availability in New Street car park.


            The wider project would consist of the following:


·         Upgrade the existing King Street toilet facility to provide a high standard facility which could be sign posted from the town centre and provide facilities for bus users, visiting Mold or using the Transport Hub on their way to other locations;

·         Complete the bus station improvement works, including the introduction of a one way system over the station and providing a holding point for coach parties visiting the town;

·         Upgrade the Kiosk adjacent to the public convenience and actively seek to market the building for a small café or coffee vending business;

·         Demolish the New Street toilet facility;

·         Realign and redesign the car park to increase the capacity by 15 spaces;

·         Provide two Electric Car charging points; and

·         Resurfacing of New Street car park.


The scheme would be subject to a public consultation exercise and further discussions would be held with the bus operators operating from Mold bus station.  The consultation process would also include feedback on the option to charge users of the facility, both to ensure funds were available to maintain the facility in future years and to provide a barrier to anti-social behaviour at the facility.




(a)       That Cabinet approve the upgrade to the existing public convenience facility at King Street Bus Station and that the toilet in New Street Car Park is demolished to increase parking availability, following the Town Council’s decision not to take up the option to take on maintenance liability for the facility; and


(b)       That the completion of the Bus Station improvements be approved.
