LETTER: Waste of money

I agree with Peter Jack’s comments about the new toilet which has been built as part of the Waterfront development (Herald letters, July 2).

How ridiculous that the council are refusing to open this toilet as they are unwilling to take over its maintenance until the end of August!

How short sighted!

Do they not want visitors to come to this area over the summer?

Furthermore this also excludes many of us local residents from spending much time on this part of the seafront, if the nearest toilet is so far away.

Peter says that many will be relieving themselves in the bushes and between the beach huts – for many of us that is not an option.

I guess the members of the council who make these decisions are reasonably young, fit and healthy and can’t imagine what it’s like to have bladder weakness or be on water tablets, as are many of the older generation.

I bet, come August, they’ll find another excuse for not opening it, so why waste money on something they don’t intend to use?
