PEOPLE still have a chance to respond to a public consultation being staged to find a way forward for Haworth's at risk public loos.

Bradford Council has indicated it intends to withdraw funding from the two public toilet blocks in Haworth Central Park and at the Bronte Parsonage Museum Car Park from April 2018.

Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council wants people to complete a survey to provide their own views on these facilities.

Parish council chairman, Councillor Gary Swallow, said he and his colleagues believe removing funding from the village's public toilets is a "very short sighted cut".

He added: "The toilets are invaluable not just as a community facility for residents of the parish but are also vital to support the tourist industry which many local people and businesses rely heavily upon.

"We're currently in negotiations with the district council and are investigating all options in terms of the future of these toilets.

"However, we're also really keen to gauge public views on this matter, and would be grateful if people could take a couple of minutes to complete the online survey at

"We are also keen to hear from any local people who may be interested and able to voluntarily open the toilets on a temporary, rota basis."
