A campaign to see former public toilets in Holt replaced with a building that will benefit the whole community is gaining momentum.

North Norfolk District Council, which owns the land on Church Street, has applied for planning permission to build a house there. It intends to sell the land when permission has been gained.

But Holt Town Council says the site should be used to build a facility the whole town can benefit from such as a museum or community centre.

Now, Trevor Ivory, conservative parliamentary spokesman for North Norfolk, has called on the new Liberal Democrat leader of NNDC, Virginia Gay, to think again about the council's plans.

He said: “A survey of every house in the town, which I carried out last year, revealed an overwhelming desire for the toilets to be reopened. Failing that, people wanted to see the land given back to the town so that it can be used for another community facility.

“I have written to the new leader reminding her of the results of my survey and the huge public opposition to the plans to sell the site. I hope that she will be more understanding of local feeling on this issue than her predecessor and others in her party have been.”
