ANY new public toilets built with money from developments in Honiton would be maintained by the town council if it adopts a committee recommendation.

Honiton Town Council's policy committee recommended adopting a policy that would see money secured through planning developments spent on providing more public toilets in the town.

However, any toilets procured in this way would then have to be maintained by the town council at an estimated cost of £8,000 per year, depending on the size.

There would also be an allowance to account for the cost of any vandalism.

East Devon District Council would carry out the maintenance under the terms of a legally binding Local Area Agreement.

The full town council will now consider the committee's recommendation, which was made at a meeting on Monday, February 25.
