Midlothian Council’s SNP-led administration has reconsidered its contentious proposals to close all five public toilets in Midlothian.
At a Cabinet meeting on May 28, councillors agreed that the services should continue at a ‘reduced specification’.
This would mean continuing the service, but ‘with two cleaning operatives and one vehicle’.
Last December the council approved a review of all Midlothian public toilets aimed at saving £85,000 in 2013/14 and £117,000 each year thereafter.
The Cabinet’s recommendations will go before the Full Council at a later date.
What do you think about the administration’s U-turn on toilet closures?
