Caught short over toilet closure

I am annoyed that Mirfield Town Council did not do enough to clarify Kirklees Council’s intentions regarding the public toilets in Station Road, Mirfield.

Mirfield Labour Party was ready to campaign for their retention but when we heard via a leading town councillor that the town council was being given another year to find a way to keep them open, we suspended our campaign to give the town council a chance to produce a viable solution.

Now we are told the toilets will close on April 1 2013, so time is very short. The way forward therefore now appears to be for Mirfield Town Council to fund the toilets for at least the next 12 months while it seeks a permanent solution. I therefore call on them to do so.
