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 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 "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.
