HOPE is in sight for the re-opening of a public toilet in Portishead.
After a lengthy debate, Portishead Town Council has agreed to pursue the acquisition and refurbishment of the loos in Wyndham Way, which were closed by North Somerset Council on April 1.
The town council is now looking at two options.
Councillors have proposed they take the freehold or leasehold of the toilets, which are in serious disrepair, and either demolish them, replacing them with new stand alone toilets, or give them a complete overhaul.
It was also agreed that if the timescale to move the project forward proves lengthy, the council will look into the possibility of providing a temporary toilet while the work is carried out.

The town council has submitted an application for funding of £47,500 from North Somerset Council’s community investment fund, to carry out the work to the toilets, but early indications suggest the authority will only be offered £15,000.
