councillors reach deal to re-open Brean public loos
public toilet block in Brean which was closed by Sedgemoor District
Council earlier this year to save money has been re-opened after
parish councillors took over the facilitues.
Holidaymakers have been complaining that the closure of the block,
outside Brean Village Hall, meant they had a long walk to find
other facilities at the entrance to Brean's beach car park or
at the National Trust's Brean Cove cafe.
Harvey, group manager for community and wellbeing at Sedgemoor
District Council, told Burnham-On-Sea.com this week: "I can
confirm that we have reached an agreement to transfer the public
toilets to Brean Parish Council so they can be opened for the
busy summer period."
"The Parish Council has agreed to meet all the costs of
cleaning them until October 30th when we'll decide whether they
take them on permanently."
She confirmed that the loos had been shut by Sedgemoor as part
of its savings programme.
