Question over future of Pelsall’s public toilets

The public toilets in Pelsall village could remain open “for the foreseeable future” despite approval to close them as part of Walsall Council’s budget proposals.

Coun Garry Perry said although the closure of public toilets across the borough would save about £120,000 a year, he was hoping that the facilities in Norton Road would remain open for now.

“When the budget was consulted on there was a clear view from many that closing down the toilets was not too much of an issue,” he explained. “However in Pelsall we made a case that our toilets were not part of a district centre – as Brownhills, Bloxwich, Willenhall and so on.”

However, the new Pelsall Village Centre, which opens fully for the first time tomorrow (March 19), has accessible toilets that will be available to the general public and not just by service users.

“I am working with officers on a proposal to keep the main Pelsall toilet block open, at least for the foreseeable future,” said Coun Perry.
