Let’s demolish toilets – and start again
AS a resident of one of the villages and a frequent visitor to Royston, I have been interested to follow the correspondence in The Crow about the proposal to close the public lavatories at the bus station. The bus station site is close to the town centre
AS a resident of one of the villages and a frequent visitor to Royston, I have been interested to follow the correspondence in The Crow about the proposal to close the public lavatories at the bus station.
The bus station site is close to the town centre and is one of the first features the visitor registers on entering the town by the A10.
Surely any building on such a prominent site should be of a high architectural standard.
I should, therefore, like to suggest that not only should the lavatories be closed, but that the entire building in which they are housed should be demolished and replaced by something more respectable.
You may also want to watch:
One way forward would be for the freeholders of the site to invite proposals, perhaps by means of an architectural competition, for the redevelopment of the entire bus station site to include provision for a public waiting room, office, and public lavatories.
Plans for the renovation and enhancement of such an important central site in a town such as Royston should surely be adopted as a priority by the authorities concerned.
