Closed Toilets

The announcement in the Chancellor’s budget statement on Monday that councils will no longer have to pay business rates on public toilets means that Melksham should reconsider re-opening some of the closed facilities in the town according to local councillor Jon Hubbard.

When Wiltshire Council decided it could no longer fund the public toilets across the county, Melksham Town Council and Melksham Without Parish Council jointly funded keeping the toilets in the Market Place open, but all others were closed. The council’s felt it was too expensive to keep all of the public toilets in the town open, in part because of the cost of the business rates.

Now Melksham South Councillor Jon Hubbard is calling for a new assessment of the cost of opening the toilets. Jon commented, “I would particularly like to see the toilets in the Bath Road car park reopened if we can. These would provide a vital facility for our park that is currently sorely missing.”

Jon has written to the Town Council asking for a review of the costs to be undertaken and a report brought to the next available council meeting for a decision to be taken.
