Arun District Council has described public toilets in Culver Road, Felpham, as a ‘priority’.

The comment comes after complaints regarding the current seasonal closure of the facility.

A spokesperson for Arun district said the closure, and that of toilets at Sandy Road, Pagham, Norfolk Gardens, Littlehampton, and West Beach, Climping, were agreed as part of a full council decision in January this year.

They added the Culver Road toilets are recognised and agreed as a council priority, ‘especially given the amount of summer use they get’ and that, as a result, improvements are planned ‘as part of capital prioritisation programme’.

It comes as the council has submitted a planning application for the facilities (FP/246/17/PL).

If approved, the plans would include alterations to layout of existing public conveniences and new shutter door on south elevation.

The deadline for submitting comments on the plans is November 9.
