resident urges council to introduce more public toilets
angry Burnham-On-Sea resident this week urged councillors to introduce
more public toilet facilities in the town.
Young, pictured, stood up at Monday's town council meeting and
told them he is "disgusted" by the poor facilities in
Mike, who is a volunteer at Burnham's Tourist Information Centre,
said: "It is a disgrace that there is only one set of public
toilets on Burnham seafront which are often very busy at this
time of year and closed in the evenings. I am disgusted that more
facilities are not available in a seaside town like this."
He called on the Town Council and Sedgemoor District Council
to improve the facilities.
But Mayor Michael Clarke responded: "I do sympathise with
the comments, but public toilets are unfortunately one of several
services that have been affected by the recent cuts."
Town clerk Eileen Shaw said the matter would be considered again
by councillors at a future meeting.
