Following on from their planning application to Highland Council Portree and Braes Community Trust are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified local contractors who wish to provide quotations for the installation of temporary public toilets at Portree Pier.
The works will involve siting the unit, installation of pipeworks, plumbing and electricity. Contractors may submit prices for all the works or for individual trades. It is expected that the facilities will be in place in time for Summer season 2017.
On social media the Trust commented: “Unlike roads, schools etc there is no legal obligation on the Council to provide or maintain toilets. That is why, despite an exponential growth in tourism, several PC's on Skye have closed in the last decade.”
