FURTHER talks over the future of an under-offer Peeblesshire public toilet will take place this month.

An item on the West Linton facility was discussed in private at October’s full council meeting due to the inclusion of confidential information.

An offer on the table to buy one of the village’s two public loos is of interest to bosses at the local authority.

But members of the community have expressed their opposition to the potential sale, with the vast majority of respondents to a survey urging it not to go ahead.

A Scottish Borders Council spokesperson said: “Members agreed to consider a further report at the council meeting in November. This is to allow for further engagement with the community council, due diligence to be undertaken on the offer, and for the development of proposals for the improvement of one facility, should the sale of the other be progressed.”

The council said it had received a “very generous” offer to purchase the toilet in September.
