Temporary toilets have opened for visitors to a Suffolk park after a “last minute hitch” was resolved at no cost to the taxpayer.

Framlingham Town Council had agreed to hire the facilities at Pageant Field for eight weeks over the summer – but found they were unusable without steps.

The council agreed at its latest meeting to spend up to £300 on hiring the steps. Although councillors were reluctant to spend further funds on top of the £2,000 already agreed to hire and clean the toilets, it was felt necessary to prevent further delays in opening.

Since then, however, the council contacted the hire company and was offered the steps to be fitted immediately at no extra cost.

Stephanie Bennell, chairman of the Lands committee, said: “It’s a great relief.”

The toilet will be open each day from 8.30am-7pm, with daily inspections and cleaning. If it is well used, the council will consider funding a permanent toilet block.
