Plans to close almost 30 public toilets across the Highlands have been delayed.
Highland Council has extended its review of its running of the loos by two months until 31 October following feedback from communities.
Budget Leader and Chair of Corporate Resources Councillor Alister MacKinnon and Councillor Allan Henderson chair of Environment, Development and Infrastructure report: “In view of serious community proposals coming forward and being assessed, by groups such as North Coast 500 and others across the Highlands, through the Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund, it is prudent to allow extra time for the review.
“The review will be extended to 31st October, to ensure we have a sustainable network of toilets across the Highlands.
“The Administration is also looking at ways of creating a council loan fund to help communities with conversion to community ownership.”
