Camborne town centre’s last public toilets – the block in the Rosewarne car park – looks set close at the end of March.
BID Camborne, which represents 320 town centre businesses, has paid to keep them open this winter despite the fact funding the service is not BID’s responsibility. BID Camborne has also been in contact with both Cornwall Council and Camborne Town Council outlining how important businesses believe it is for the future success of the town centre to save the toilet block. As yet nothing has been resolved, although CTC is due to discuss the matter at its full council meeting in February.
Mel Martin, BID Camborne Manager said: “Toilets and parking are important to the health of our town. Camborne businesses are investing in the town and do not wish to see that investment undermined by a lack of basic provision for visitors.
“BID Camborne has paid Cornwall Council to keep this toilet block fully open this winter so it would not impact on our businesses’ winter trading, but we are deeply concerned that closing the last public toilet block in the town centre will have a detrimental effect on trading conditions.”
Camborne residents and business owners are being urged to contact their town councillor and Cornwall councillor if they feel these toilets should be saved.
