Barnoldswick Town Council could take over public toilets
11:00am Sunday 22nd December 2013 in News
Barnoldswick councillor David Whipp said: “At the Barnoldswick Town Council’s general purpose committee meeting, the consensus of the town council is that we’d like to see public toilets maintained and if Pendle Council goes ahead with closures, the town council would be willing to take them on.”
Pendle’s executive committee met the following night – Thursday – and recommended the majority of toilets be closed except in areas where town or parish councils could keep them operating.
Coun Whipp said further discussions would take place in Barnoldswick and Earby, but if the full council approved the recommendations at tonight’s meeting, toilets in Kelbrook and Salterforth would close at the end of the financial year.
