The public toilets in Coleraine’s main shopping area are a sad reflection on a modern town – that’s the view of MLA Maurice Bradley who has called on the Council to take action on the public conveniences at Park Street.
“I have been told that there are plans to renovate the toilets, but like anything else it takes time to bring things through the planning system,” said the MLA.
“It is my understanding that there is water getting into the electrics in the building, surely this is a health and safety hazard and the toilet should be closed.”
The MLA went on: “It is sad reflection on Coleraine when the only toilets available to the general public in the town centre are in such a bad state. Anyone visiting, who would require the use of the services at Park Street would not get a very good impression of our town.
“I would urge the Council to take action as soon as possible.”
In a statement, Causeway Coast and Glens Councils said: “Council have recently received Planning Approval to undertake work to the toilets at Park Street. This includes replacing the existing entranceway which will eliminate water ingress. There are no known safety concerns at present and the work will be completed when resources become available.
