The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster City Council currently provide public toilets for attendees and participants of the Notting Hill Carnival. The Carnival takes place in the north of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the adjoining part of the City of Westminster. The two authorities are inviting tenders for a contract to provide toilets for the 2019 Carnival (with an option to extend to the 2020 and 2021 Carnivals).
The Contract will cover the requirements of both Boroughs and both Boroughs will be party to the contract with the contractor.
The Notting Hill Carnival is the largest celebration of Caribbean culture in Europe, visited by over a million Londoners and tourists each year and making a significant contribution to London’s economy and its status as a culturally diverse global city. The Event takes place over the Sunday, traditionally Children’s Day, and Monday of the August Bank Holiday each year (25th & 26th August 2019), and runs from 10am – 7pm. The anticipated provision level is for a minimum of Four Hundred and Eighty (480) units (per day), no less than Forty-Five (45) accessible with sufficient urinal capacity to match the number of units provided. Sufficient hand cleansing facilities are to be provided at each location for the volume provided.
