REPRESENTATIVES from Fowey Town Council and Cornwall Council are set to meet on Wednesday to discuss the future of the town's public toilets.

The town council agreed to take over the responsibility of running the toilets in February last but the plans have been stalled due to continuing delays and disagreements over costs.

The town council proposed the transfer from Cornwall Council ownership to town council ownership of toilets at Caffa Mill, Town Quay, Readymoney and the main car park. The package also includes the transfer of Caffa Mill car park and Squires Field. It is hoped the meeting will help to move the plans along.

Fowey deputy mayor Anne Boosey said the council hoped the issue will be resolved before the start of the holiday season.

"Cornwall Council said the cost of running the toilets would be £27,000 a year but we think it could be up to double that," she said. "Here we are almost in March with the season opening and we are still no nearer to getting this sorted."

    The councillors should suggest to the Cornwall Council that the £3million it is proposing to waste on promoting the Cornish language would be better employed on the upkeep of things people really need like toilets and libraries.
