Plan to improve loos after cuts
Some public toilets in the Keynsham area have been earmarked for improvement as B&NES Council reveals plans to cut the number of facilities it manages.
The toilets at Keynsham’s Memorial Park and at The Shallows at Saltford are among the facilities the authority plans to improve from April 2014.
But the toilets at Ashton Way car park are on the list of conveniences that could be sold or transferred to a residents’ group or parish council. New facilities for the town will be provided as part of the regeneration, however, from autumn 2014.
Councillor David Dixon, Cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said: “By reducing the number of public toilets that Bath & North East Somerset Council maintains, we can invest some of the money raised from selling the remainder into improving standards, hygiene, and cleanliness for the people who use them.”
