CARMARTHENSHIRE County Council’s Executive Board has agreed to offer Burry Port Town Council land suitable for toilets in Burry Port Harbour if it feels additional facilities are needed.
The Executive Board met today to discuss a petition organised by county councillors John James and Amanda Fox in July to reinstate toilets at the east side of the harbour.
The toilets, near the former RNLI building, were removed by the council due to health and safety issues.
Burry Port Marina Ltd is in the process of developing the old RNLI on the east side which will include a restaurant with changing and showering facilities and toilets.
Executive board member for leisure, Cllr Peter Hughes Griffiths, said: “There are toilets on the west side. We are in discussions with the town council and can offer help in providing suitable land so they can run them. We hope we can work together on this.”
There is currently a public toilet with directional signage located in the car park across the foot-bridge. The building is due for renovation soon and will incorporate a café/snack bar and toilet.
The council’s executive board member for environment, Cllr Hazel Evans, said: “There are other toilets in our communities where the town council or organisations have taken responsibility and run them.”
