No Temporary Loos For Porthcressa

The Schiller Shelter at Porthcressa will be redeveloped

The Porthcressa toilets have been demolished but the Council’s Chief Technical Officer won’t be spending any penny from his £65,000 public convenience budget on temporary provision.

At the General Purposes meeting, Neville Gardner said he was aware that there was, “an element of concern” from the community over the lack of loos as the summer season approaches.

But in response to a question by Richard McCarthy, Neville said it wouldn’t be appropriate for his department’s budget to be spent on a temporary solution.

His team would assist the Porthcressa Regeneration Project board if required, but an interim solution was their responsibility.

However, at the same meeting, members agreed the budget and key performance measures for providing toilet facilities. These included providing the new facilities, currently being built on Porthcressa as part of the regeneration project and to “continue to provide this service to both residents and visitors.“
