A senior councillor has been accused of having double standards in a row about saving toilets from closure.

A leaflet delivered to homes in Oxenhope, which highlighted the efforts of Conservatives to keep the threatened Haworth Central Park toilets, has exasperated local parish councillors.

At their latest meeting they accused Worth Valley district Conservative councillor Glen Miller - their guest speaker - of double standards.

Chairman Coun Neal Cameron told him: “Your intention was always to get the Oxenhope toilets closed. We made it very clear that we wished to run these toilets ourselves.”

Coun Miller said the toilets in Lowertown, which were sold to a private buyer in 2011, were little used, costly to maintain and attracted anti-social behaviour.

He said: “My job is to represent everybody. You obviously didn’t do enough to make your intentions for the toilets clear.”
