Birmingham Council pledges to spruce up public toilets

Birmingham City Council has pledged to spend more money on upgrading the changing rooms and public toilets at some of the city's 427 parks and playing fields.

At a meeting of the Leisure, Sport & Culture Overview & Scrutiny Committee, councillors were told that the facilities are often unsatisfactory or entirely lacking.

Many changing rooms have been closed due to vandalism or decay. Senneleys Park, for example, has three football pitches and is used by athletics clubs, but the roof of the changing room is collapsing.

Committee chairman councillor John Alden said: "It will take a concerted effort to get these facilities improved."
