There could be fewer public toilets and charges for spending a penny under new proposals being discussed for Wrexham.

Councillors have been told that running five town centre public conveniences is costing about £60,000 a year.

Options being considered by a council committee include earmarking toilets for closure or charging for using the facilities.

A report also recommends working with businesses in the town to make more of their toilets publicly available.

Savings of up to £13,000 a year could be made by demolishing loos at Bodhyfryd and would free up attendants' time to concentrate on other toilets, the report says.

Toilets at Henblas Street could also be refurbished as part of the proposals.

The council's employment, business and investment scrutiny committee discussed the plans on Wednesday evening but a final decision is yet to be taken.
