Dear ES Freedom of information (Group),

Thank you for your response. I found that in your borough there are no toilets managed by the council.
However, searching on google maps, it shows that there are are several public toilets.
Are you assuming that none of those toilets are managed by the council?
Here below there is a link of the google map search.

Dear FOI Requester

The link you have provided confirms that the public toilets are closed.

The link also lists community toilets at Sainsbury's and Waitrose - these are not managed by Bromley Council, they are managed by Sainsbury's and Waitrose.

As mentioned before Bromley Council does not have any public toilets, there are community toilets, some of which Bromley Council pays for.

However, your FOI request did not mention community toilets.

Kind regards

FOI Co-ordinator

Dear ES Freedom of information (Group),

I just checked your website about the toilets, and indeed it seems there are no toilets managed by your council.

However, you wrote that the council pays for some of the community toilets.

Can I know the ammount you paid for the last finacial year, 2018/2019,
and eventually, if you can provide it, also toward company or for what community toilets ?

Thank you,
