Toilets and timescales - why shut the George Lane public toilets?

Written by Ken Culley on .

I fail to understand why the George Lane toilets need to be temporarily closed.

In my view it will take a considerable time to effect a sale of the Chantry Lane premises - not the 'short time' quoted by The Town Mayor in your news article.

The town and its traders have always encouraged visitors and to deprive them of an essential facility close to where most coaches and people park their vehicles is short sighted. The town council should think again and accept the minimal costs involved in keeping the toilets open.
