Maenclochog toilets

Pembrokeshire County Council is seeking alternative ways of running some of its public toilets.

Following a recent review about the future of 28 toilet blocks, the Council will be writing to town and community councils - which cover the areas where blocks are located - to explore whether they would be interested in taking any of them over.

The Council would also like to hear from local businesses and community organisations, which may be interested in taking over the running of these toilets.

At present the Council maintains 93 public toilets across the County  at an annual cost of £1.5m a year.

This equates to 7.9 toilet blocks per 10,000 head of population - the highest ratio in Wales - and compares to 4.7 per 10,000 head of population in the similar area of Cornwall.

Following an initial review, a meeting of the Council's Environment Overview& Scrutiny Committee last month decided to consult further about the future of 28 blocks.

The law does not require local authorities to provide public toilets and the takeover or closure of 28 facilities in Pembrokeshire would save the County Council about £135,000 a year.

If local businesses or community organisations are interested in taking over public toilets they should contact the clerk of the relevant town/community council.

Contact details for clerks are available on the County Council's website or from the Contact Centre 01437 764551.

The 28 toilets under review are: Croesgoch, Crymych, Dinas Cross (Main Road), Fishguard Square, Gwaun Valley Sychpant, Letterston, Maenclochog, Mathry, Nevern, Solva Upper Lay-by, St David's

Quickwell Hill, Trefin, Burton, Clynderwen, Lawrenny, Llangwm Black Tar, Llanstadwell Hazelbeach, Milford Haven Manchester Square, Milford Haven The Rath, Newgale adj to The Pebbles Café, Newgale adj to Duke of Edinburgh public house, Neyland Marina Brunel Quay, Pembroke Black Horse, Pembroke Parade, Pembroke Dock Front Street, Pembroke Dock Hobbs Point, St Florence, St Ishmaels.
