Darfield public toilet closes

Friday November 20 2015

A PUBLIC toilet has been closed in Darfield as part of budget cuts.

The urinal wall on Barnsley Road has closed because the land it is on has been sold to a developer.

NPS has fenced off the area and signs have been put up advising of its closure.

Coun Roy Miller said: “The results of our cuts to services due to continued government cuts to council budgets, have hit us hard and although closing a public toilet is regrettable, it’s unavoidable due to our financial circumstances.”

Another facility lost forever, what about drivers? I bet Sir Houghton's facilities are maintained.

The Council cannot be saving any money by closing the toilets as the Council have not maintained the toilets in the past year. There has been an old window frame and a pile of discarded Free Press issues in the toilets for at least the past 12 months. They have been a disgrace. The fencing has probably cost more than any maintenance carried out by the Council in the past year.
