Plans to install three new toilets on Sidmouth seafront will be put forward in the new year.

Sidmouth Town Council is looking to change disused storage space at the seafront amenity building at March Arches into new loo facilities.

There is currently a toilet and shower in the area as well as a water refill station.

The idea was proposed at the council's pre-budget meeting on October 21.

Christopher Holland, town clerk, said: "We are experiencing, at the main beach, a bit of a renaissance.

"There are lots of activities going on, people to like to swim in that area behind the rock island which is sheltered. The toilet is convenient and the showers are well used.

"The closest toilets are at the Triangle.

"They are plans at this stage which will be confirmed in January."

If supported in January, the council would look to have the loos ready by Easter 2020.
