Temporary toilets will once again be on Royal Albert Drive as wait for new, permanent complex with a restaurant and public toilets continues 

The new building, designed by Scarborough-based Mick Paxton Architects, will bring permanent public toilets back to the seafront as well as a national chain eatery and accommodation.

The plans for the building have been criticised by Historic England, which aims to protect the country’s heritage.

It called the look and design of the glass-fronted complex as confusing and urged planners to reject the proposal. It also had concerns that it would detract from Scarborough Castle’s position as the unchallenged star of the skyline.

The public consultation on the development closed in October last year, with a decision due date listed on the application for December of the same year. To date no decision has been made yet.

The temporary toilets will be free to use and open from 8am until 9pm, once they are installed, no date as been released yet.
