The toilets near the weir have been closed for some months due
to problems with the drains. Without any consultation or
information being presented to interested groups,the council have
told us categorically that they will not be reopened. We have only
just been give costings for demolition (£27,000); remaining
closed & fencing off (£8,500); repairs (as stated by the
council (£26,300). However our group feels that the costs are
excessive & some are cosmetic.
The toilets are an important facility for all the parks users, walkers, runners and visitors of all kinds and especially for older and younger people. The park has thousands of visitors a year and we would not want this to change. The community (including Friends of Etherow Country Park & Compstall Community Council) insist the council meet with us to discuss this matter as we are willing to assist with appropriate work.
