Perth & Kinross Council asks for #Penny4YourThoughts
Perth & Kinross Council has launched a new survey, #Penny4YourThoughts, to learn what residents and visitors to the area think about public toilet provision.
The survey is open for 12 weeks - until Monday 18 October - and invites people to suggest any other locations where they think public toilets should be located.
The Council owns and maintains 13 Public Toilets and has partnerships with approximately 30 businesses and public venues to provide toilet facilities for residents and visitors to the area.
This includes the Boathouse Toilets at the Loch Leven National Nature Reserve, which were built and continue to be managed by a partnership of local Groups and the landowner, and the Crieff James Square Public Toilets - which are managed during the tourist season by Perth & Kinross Council, and over the winter months (to provide year-round provision) by the Crieff Business Improvement District.
Councillor Angus Forbes, Convenor of the Environment & Infrastructure Committee, said: "The majority of Perth and Kinross's toilets were introduced nearly 20 years ago. This survey is aiming to find out whether they are still in the right locations and whether, when they require maintenance or renewal, other opportunities can be considered.''
"Perhaps a local community would like to take on the day-to-day management of their nearest Public Toilet, or maybe a local business could provide a Comfort Scheme in place of an existing Automated Public Convenience.''
"This survey is part of a wider review of the council's operational infrastructure to inform future investment decisions and, as part of the Perth & Kinross Offer, we are hoping to work with the whole community to ensure Perth and Kinross's facilities meet everyone's needs and expectations over the next 20 years."
