On the 20th February 2007 the Ward Committee of Ward 5 put a proposal to the Metro to include Public Toilet Facilities in the Integrated Development Plan to be built according to the architectural dictates of the areas concerned in Central, Richmond Hill, North End, Mount Croix and Sydenham in order to provide hygienic facilities for the masses anticipated to invade our shores for the World Cup. To date, needless to say, no provision has been made to accommodate the crowds. This will only lead to people using the pavements, trees and residents gardens as W.C’s, not world cups, but water-closets!
Time is running out, I even went so far as to propose these facilities be seen as a job creation and empowerment project supervised and with the emphasis on hygiene.
Furthermore, I suggested that the existing facilities be upgraded and repaired.
