Many residents will know that the Parish Council paid Cornwall Council to keep these toilets open during the school summer holidays this year. The cost of keeping them open was met from the Parish Council’s reserves but this option is not financially sustainable as reserves are limited.
If the toilets are to re-open next year, the cost will have to be met from an increase in Council Tax.
Recognising, however, that we live in times of financial restraint, the Parish Council believes that it is important to ask residents if they want the toilets to re-open and if so, how much extra they are willing to pay on their monthly Council Tax Bill.
Within the next couple of weeks, we will be inviting all visitors to this website to take part in a survey about the future of the toilets. Paper copies of the survey will also be available to collect from and return to the Post Office in the village square.
The survey (which is being finalised at the moment) will ask some straightforward questions – some of which ask you to express your preferred option.
Completion of the whole survey should take no longer than a couple of minutes and the information provided will be really helpful to the Parish Council when it comes to decide what the future arrangements for the toilets will be.
So please watch this space, take part in the survey and have your say on this important issue. Thank you.
