Camden council are proposing to close the toilets in Pond Square. Once closed it is highly unlikely they will ever be reopened as toilets but sold off to the private sector for conversion to another purpose.

These well known and popular toilets receive approximately 88,000 visits per year. (This figure supplied by Camden following an electronic count.) Can you imagine where all those people go next time they are caught short while visiting the village?

If you object to the proposed closure please make your opinion known. The consultation period runs from 11th January to 28th February 2016.

Submissions can be made by completing an online questionnaire at

There will be a meeting with Council representatives on Thursday 11th February between 6pm and 8pm at the Highgate Society rooms , 10A south Grove. Please do come and make your voice heard.
