TOWN councillors are supporting a call to keep public toilets at the Royston bus station.

They are against proposals to see the toilets close - and want replacement public conveniences on the site.

The proposal to close the toilets is included in a project from North Herts District Council to spend £155,000 on improving public toilets in Fish Hill and to spend £7,000 on refurbishing toilets at The Cross.

Cllr Rod Kennedy described the decision to close the toilets at the bus station as "extraordinary".

He said the district council had not "done its homework" on the need for public toilets at the bus station.

He said a continental-style toilet could be erected on the site.

The committee urged the district council to re-examine the project or, at least, look at providing alternative toilets at the bus station.
