Parish councillors reach deal to re-open Brean public loos

A 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.

Teresa 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.
