Parish council help saves Clun's toilets

Public toilets in a Shropshire town are to remain open after the parish council agreed to take over running them.

Shropshire Council wanted to hand over responsibility for running the toilets in Clun to reduce costs.

It has promised to provide financial support for one year to help with the transition.

It hopes to agree similar deals for 30 public toilets in the county by April and is offering to provide a cash incentive in each case.

The councillor responsible for development services in Shropshire, Martin Taylor-Smith, has said: "All public bodies need to be prepared to work differently and in new ways."
