George Lane toilets: where've the theatre funds gone?

Written by Margaret Gorham on .

I am very concerned about the closure of George Lane toilets, particularly as it is a tourist town...not much of a welcome!
I have two questions which I would like answered:
Why were the toilets closed before the improvements were able to proceed?

About ten years ago, money was being collected for a theatre complex [beside the car park] where new toilets were to be included. As this project never transpired, what happened to the money collected? Could it not be used towards the new toilets?
I have asked the local council these questions, but have had no response.
