Consultation on Public Toilets
Tuesday 21st February 2012
Following the decision to review the provision of public toilets in Alloa town centre, the Council is consulting to find out people's preferences.
The consultation exercise runs until Monday 5th March. It includes an online questionnaire as well as face-to-face consultation, with council staff speaking to town centre businesses, shoppers and visitors.
Alloa Central Community Council is also assisting with the consultation and ensuring that wide range of groups such as the elderly, disabled and parents are consulted.
Last month the Council decided to conduct a review and also agreed not to proceed with the planned demolition of the former toilet block at Maple Court.
The questionnaire asks people to rank their preference from three options: no change from the current situation; re-open the Maple Court toilets; or temporarily re-opening the Maple Court toilets while exploring the option of providing modern toilets elsewhere in the town centre, for example within the refurbished Speirs Centre.
Council Leader Gary Womersley said: "I'm keen that we consult thoroughly and explore the options available before making a decision on the future of public toilet provision in Alloa town centre."
The results of the consultation will be published, including on ClacksWeb, next month.
