Councillors are to look into whether it should charge 20p a visit to any of their nine loos.
East Cambs District Council is putting the forward the option as it begins a review of the public conveniences it operates in Ely, Littleport, Burwell and Fordham.
The review began earlier this year by assessing the current state of the nine toilets in which currently cost over £200,000 a year and looked at how other areas are managing their toilets.
A council spokesman said: “One of the ways many district councils across the country fund their public conveniences is through a charge to fund improved facilities.
“East Cambs District Council would like to test this option through a questionnaire to ask people what they think of the current service and whether they would be prepared to spend 20p to use the facilities if the money is reinvested in the toilets.”

“It is really important that people come forward and have their say to help with the review into this service. We are looking at a number of options at present – with charging being amongst them.
“The feedback we have had so far to the idea has been positive but this will be assessed once the consultation closes on October 13.”
