Funeral business bosses who bought a disused public toilet for more than £200,000 have applied to turn the site into an office.

W Uden and Sons, which owns the premises in Sidcup, Eltham, as well as six other sites in south east London put an application to councillors last month.

The company bought the toilets and an attached electricty sub-station in Townley Road, Bexleyheath, from Bexley council for £239,000. There was a guide price of £175,000 on the building when it went to auction at the beginning of June.

Managing director Nicholas Uden said: “Once we had purchased the premises we knew our first job would be to clear the vermin problem around the premises.

“Our aim is to turn the very unsightly building into a very attractive one but keep the same structure.”

The toilets closed in January this year following an electrical failure which would have cost the council £4,500 to repair.
