A LONG AWAITED replacement block of toilets in a play park is nearing closer to opening.

The facilities on Fair Park, in Bodmin were demolished earlier this year, with a brand new facility installed by Healthmatic.

However, despite appearing to be complete, the facility has not yet been opened.

A spokesperson for Bodmin Town Council confirmed that this was due to the authority sourcing a solution for payment for it which includes the option to pay by cash.

Councillors had previously resolved not to have the facility operated solely by contactless payment.
