Save the Public Toilets in Shoeburyness

The time has come and the anticipation is over as the rainbow coalition announced earlier this month their budget proposals for the next financial year.

Over the next few days I will offer my thoughts on the different aspects of their proposals but none of the proposals has captured public attention like the proposal to close four public toilets in the East of the town.

Two of the toilets in question, East Beach and Ness Road that are due to be axed are in Shoeburyness. From the conversations that I have had on the doorstep over the past week the backlash is immense.

In the meantime, it has been revealed that Thorpe Bay will get gold plated toilets at the cost of £190,000 to be financed by corporate borrowing. A petition has been set up to try and save the two public toilets from closure. You can add your voice by signing the petition here.
