The council’s Health and Community Committee has agreed on the need for a toilet action plan to consider the future of public conveniences in the North West.

The committee agreed on Thursday to a recommendation to set up a working group to look into toilets in Derry and Strabane.

A report, outlining the need, explained: “Current council owned and managed public conveniences consist of a range of ages, quality, capacity and are not consistently located across the council area.

“There are more public conveniences located in the former Strabane District Council area than in the former Derry City Council area. An action plan is required that considers future need for public conveniences, the delivery model best suited to future demand and all related matters require further consideration through the proposed working group. To enable the review to proceed terms of reference will be agreed.”
