WHILE it is usually said that the media concentrate on the bad news rather than the good, I was nevertheless sad to notice that little space has been afforded so far to the good news that public conveniences in Royston are to be upgraded.
I can now confirm that at its meeting, the Cabinet of North Herts District Council confirmed that work would go ahead to replace the Fish Hill block with a complete up-to-date set of public toilets at an estimated cost of £155,000, and that the public conveniences at The Cross would have a facelift costing £7,000.
I hope that it will be possible in due course to replace the latter with a new set when The Cross area is improved, since it has long been my view that a building designed in sympathy with the town centre architecture would lift the somewhat down-at-heel island between Kneesworth Street and Lower King Street at this point.
The toilets at the bus station are not adaptable to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act and will close, but, as they are quite close to the Fish Hill block, this should not cause too much difficulty.
