The Council's public conveniences are cleaned and restocked at least twice daily, and are locked overnight.

In the event of a problem with the standard of cleanliness or maintenance of the conveniences please contact the Council on 01322 343290.


The Council maintains two sets of public conveniences - these are located at:

  • Central Park - near the Cranford Road entrance
  • Hesketh Park - near the Park Road entrance

Opening times:

Conveniences are opened by 8.15am and closed at 6.00pm Monday to Saturday. The blocks at Central Park and Hesketh Park are open on Sundays. Regrettably public conveniences cannot be left open for night time use because of the potential vandalism and misuse problem.

Disabled facilities:

All the above conveniences include a special unit for the disabled, however these are only accessible by use of a RADAR key.

This arrangement is common throughout the UK and is the system favoured by the Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation (RADAR) to prevent unauthorised use of facilities provided for the disabled.

Other facilities:

In addition to the above Council conveniences, there are a number of privately operated conveniences, open to the general public, including:

  • Orchard Shopping Centre - High Street, Dartford
  • Priory Shopping Centre - Lowfield Street, Dartford
  • Bluewater - Greenhithe
