We are temporarily closing Leeds Sanitary station. Constant misuse of this facility, with materials being placed in the elsan, have caused a number of blockages which have required numerous call outs and a number of repairs in recent years. With its limited resources, the Trust is unable to continue to constantly carry out such repairs and so unfortunately this facility will be closed temporarily. We will review this situation by 31 August 2023.


We are sorry to report that the Elsan at Leeds Sanitary Station is currently blocked. 

Contractors will be attending and we will update the notice on the outcome.
