Closure date for public loo

Have your say

A CLOSURE date has been set for a Sheffield community’s only public toilets.

The lavatory at the bottom of Chapeltown Park will be closed from April 30 due to council budget cuts.

Campaigners urged the council to re-think the decision to close Bradfield, Rivelin Post Office, Abbey Lane, Meadowhead, Fox House and Burngreave public toilets, but the council has resisted the pleas as it grapples with a £50 million reduction in its budget.

Ecclesfield Parish Council is looking into the prospect of making the facility community-run, but in the meantime residents will be without the facility.
