Rate Relief for Toilets
Bare with me as I do have a usefull comment to make.
I was out shopping last weekend early on Gloucester Rd and I needed the toilet. Oh wait I cant because the council have knocked down the toilets and car park and have sold them so houses can be built. Luckily a cafe had just opened and I cheekily asked if I could use their toilet. However this should be a service provided by the council but then it hit me. This Cafe should be rewarded for providing a public service that the council should be providing. I feel if businesses that provide a public service that the council has cut back on ( I saw it in the News the other week) they should have a standard fee reduction off their business rate. If they apply for this rate relief then then must display a public toilet sign. Its a winwinwin. Yes three wins 1st - The council doesnt need to pay to maintain toilets, 2nd - Business get rate relief, 3rd People wont feel cheeky asking to use the loo .
