Cllr Patrick McGowan has pleaded with Donegal County Council to act on the lack of public toilets in the Twin Towns.
The Fianna Fail councillor said public toilet facilities are being opened all over the county – some in quite remote areas.
He said “It is time for the Council to either lease facilities from an existing business or to built and manage a new facility in one of the main car parks.”
He said he welcomed a response from the head of Water & Environment service in the Council but we will need to see movement over the next few months one way or another, said Cllr McGowan.
Below is the response from Donegal County Council to Cllr McGowan’s query.
Dear Councillor McGowan
I refer to your query regarding the provision of Public Conveniences in Ballybofey / Stranorlar, and to our meeting on Monday 24th July 2017 regarding same.
Donegal County Council are currently reviewing Public Conveniences throughout the county through the Strategic Policy Group with a view to developing a countywide policy. The options being considered include refurbishment of existing premises as well as working in collaboration with community groups and the private sector in the provision of high quality public conveniences.
Further engagement will be carried out with Elected Members and with all Municipal Districts in the coming months.
It is envisaged that this review will be completed in Q4 2017.
Donegal County Council will seek expressions of interest for the option of providing appropriate public conveniences in Ballybofey / Stranorlar in the coming months as part of this review.
