There is a Councillor Vacancy (Casual) for the Treloggan Ward - Newquay. This Vacancy will be filled by co-option on Wednesday 5th June 2013. For more details please click this link.
Following an Extraordinary meeting of Newquay Town Council's Full Council, members have now agreed to formally take over the following toilets from Cornwall Council:
As this transfer will be happening after the budget setting of Newquay Town Council, the Town Council is having to make difficult decisions over closing some of the toilets on a flexible basis during the winter and are also planning to close the Beach Road toilets. The Town Council was unable to set a budget for running toilets as at the time Cornwall Council did not agree to the transfer of Freeholds. Cornwall Council is also only providing a first-year grant of £95,000 with no guarantees over future financial support, making this a costly exercise for the Town Council to try and keep these assets running.
A full consultation exercise will be carried out during the first 12 months to identify the priority toilets and whether the Newquay Rate Payers have any views on which toilets should remain open and whether that is throughout the year or just during the summer.
With Newquay's interests at heart the Town Council will be doing everything possible to ensure the changes and impact are minimised.
