Public toilets in Burnham-On-Sea 'will re-open next Easter'

Seaview Road public toiletsA block of public toilets in Burnham-On-Sea will re-open next Easter following a year-long closure due to vandalism and anti-social behaviour, says the district council.

Sedgemoor District Council told Burnham-On-Sea.com this week that the building in Seaview Road - which closed in April this year after a spate of anti-social behaviour - will open in time for the start of the 2008 holiday season.

This had left a question mark over the future of the premises - and town councillors even expressed concerns that the building could be sold off by owners Sedgemoor District Council.

Claire Faun, the district council's spokeswoman, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "They were originally shut on the advice of the police - the Town Council were consulted at that stage. There had been 'unsavoury' activity there, which was felt to have posed a risk to the public and our cleaning staff. As such, there are no plans to re-open them during the quieter winter season."

A sign outside the building currently directs users to other public loos at Crosses Penn near Manor Gardens, the Yacht Club, and next to the Tourist Information Centre.
