SCOTTISH Borders Council is looking to flush out views on plans to transfer the ownership of a Jedburgh toilet block.

Jedburgh Leisure Facilities Trust (JLFT) has been operating the public toilets at Lothian Park (The Glebe) since they were re-opened following the pandemic.

JLFT is now proposing to buy the toilets.

This will enable them to access grant funding from schemes, such as the National Lottery’s Awards for All Scheme, to make any improvements to the toilets which they will continue to run.

At a meeting in March last year SBC agreed to "rationalise" public toilet provision while continuing to operate one council-provided facility in each major existing settlement.

Before the sale of the Lothian Park loos goes ahead the council is seeking views on the proposal from JLFT.
