Former television presenter Christa Ackroyd was part of the campaign to keep Haworth’s Central car park toilets open.
She said: “This has been a real victory for people power and something the Brontes – and Patrick in particular – would approve.
“We’re all well aware of difficult decisions having to be made and I would thank Bradford Council for a commonsense decision made after listening to people.”
Councillor Andrew Thornton, the executive member for environment, sport and sustainability said yesterday how well-presented petitions and organised opposition to the plan had been a key factor.
He said: “I’ve been impressed by the petitions and constructive attitude shown by parish councils.”
Household Waste Recycling Centres are also set to stay open seven days per week.
Coun Thornton said: “We have been working hard to find other savings and other ways to mitigate the impact on services.
“As a result we are now able to withdraw the proposal for mid-week closures and reduced opening hours at Household waste sites.”
