Councillor Isobel Davidson is growing increasingly concerned over the implementation of the authority’s new public toilet strategy.

She said: “There was full discussion of the new approach, both at Area Committees and at the Infrastructure Services Committee where the strategy was agreed.

“It was stressed that the strategy should only be taken forward after full consultation and engagement with communities. We recognised the importance of public toilet provision and wished to see everyone involved in any proposals for change.”

Isobel has now had assurance from the Council that no more closures will take place without full consultation to see if there are other ways of keeping the important local and tourist facilities open.
