Braddan Parish Commissioners have budgeted up to £100,000 for new public toilets.

The conveniences will be built at Cronk Grianagh Park, which is between the Heritage Trail and the Ballanawin Housing Estate in Union Mills.

Board members discussed possible designs at a meeting this week (2 May).

The first toilet block to be provided in the parish will be placed near the concrete skate park, with a covered seating area also being incorporated into the plans.

Chairman Andrew Jessopp says a budget of between £50k and £100k was agreed for the scheme last financial year, but delays have meant it hasn’t progressed to the planning stage yet.

It’s part of a greater master plan by the commissioners for the area, with the costs funded through rates income.
