Dalton Park scooped up the gong for National Eco Friendly Toilets at the Loo of the Year Awards.

The toilet facilities were praised following an independent, unannounced visit from judges.

This is the 16th time that the outlet shopping centre has been recognised by the awards, which has strived to focus the spotlight on recognising and rewarding the very best washrooms throughout the UK and Ireland since 1987.

Dalton Park’s toilets were assessed against established judging criteria, including how energy efficient and environmentally friendly they are.

Dalton Park’s toilets were fully refurbished as part of its multi-million pound mall enhancement project in 2017.

In a recent report carried out by the centre it was found that the PV installation has generated a total of 104,260kWh since the installation went live. This was found to be more than enough to power the entire mall areas for up to 6 months.

This award comes off the back of Dalton Park retaining its status as one of the safest car park’s in the country after winning the national Park Mark award for the 14th consecutive year, after meeting strict standards of a rigorous assessment carried out by the police.

Jerry Hatcher, Centre Manager at Dalton Park, said: “We are delighted that our toilet facilities have once again been recognised in the Loo of the Year Awards, which are regarded as the ‘standard setters’ for those that provide ‘away from home’ facilities for staff, customers and visitors.

“We pride ourselves on giving each and every shopper a fantastic experience and our new environmentally friendly facilities have proven to be a great asset to the outlet.

“Our facilities team is dedicated to making every aspect of the centre the best it can be and this award is proof that we’re getting it right!”
