Questions over toilets
A QUESTION mark hangs over the future of almost 100 public toilets after Cornwall Council admitted that it had only confirmed deals to keep 13 open. The council is aiming to hand over responsibility for most public toilets to parish and town councils in a bid to save £1.5 million a year. This week the council issued a press release stating that 110 would be transferred to parish and town councils next month. However, when pressed by The Cornishman to provide details of which ones were being transferred, the council admitted that it had only completed deals for 13 of them. The press release also stated that the future of 56 other public toilets had also been secured after the council agreed to continue to maintain them: but, again, when The Cornishman asked for a list of locations the council said it was unable to provide them as negotiations were not complete. The news comes after parish and town councils were forced to raise their council tax rates to cover the expenditure of providing toilets, as well as other services, which the council has devolved to them. Cornwall Council said it had invested £850,000 to improve public toilets across Cornwall and was also allocating £600,000 to help parish and town councils which took over public toilets. The council also admitted that toilets which would remain under the control of County Hall could have charges introduced for users.
