Calls for better toilets at Goodrington and new pedestrian crossing near The Willows

Torbay Council's HQ, the Town Hall in Torquay

An almost 1,300 strong petition to protect and improve the toilets at Goodrington is being discussed tonight.

Torbay Council are being told the current facilities aren't good enough.

During the peak season up to 6,000 people a day can use the beach.

The petition reads: "Toilet facilities on Goodrington Beach are not sufficient and capacity must be increased. 

"Because the very young or very old may have difficulty getting to a distant toilet in time, it is important that toilet facilities continue to be available at the north, central and south ends of the beach."

25 people have signed a petition saying it would help them access The Willows shopping area.

If approved, the Interim Director of Place will be 'requested to update the council before the end of 2019 with the actions the council has and will take to address this emergency'.

Councillors will also vote on allocating £25,000 to support the work.
