Couincil looking to cut public toilets
11:08am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
Pembrokeshire County Council is considering reducing the number of public toilets it operates.
Members of the Environment Overview & Scrutiny Committee will discuss a proposal to review the future of 28 public toilets, this week.
At present the Council maintains 93 public toilets at an annual cost of £1.5m a year.
Following an initial review, a report to Thursday’s committee meeting proposes consulting further about the future of 28 blocks with a view to possible closure.
Toilets under review include Crymych, Dinas Cross Fishguard Square, Gwaun Valley Sychpant, Maenclochog, Nevern and Clynderwen.
The provision of public toilets by local authorities is not a statutory function and closure of 28 facilities would save the Council about £135,000 a year.
