Minnis Bay toilets

Residents have a chance to comment on two possible schemes being proposed for a site at Minnis Bay in Birchington on Monday 4 October.

Local people are invited to call in at any time between 4.00pm and 7.00pm at The Centre in Birchington to view the proposals before the council makes a decision.

The site currently comprises a closed toilet building and concrete beach huts which are in poor condition on the beach front. In order to make improvements here, the council has advertised the site and asked interested parties to provide proposals that would provide improved facilities and also allow additional seaside related facilities. Two proposals have now been received and now the council would like members of the public to comment on the two suggestions.

The first proposal is for a café which would include toilets available for use by the public, the second is for a café with holiday chalets.
To view the two proposed schemes in more detail members of the public are invited to attend the drop in session where they will also have the chance to speak with council planning officers about the site and to put forward any comments or suggestions.

  1. We are in favour of the toilets being renovated and reopened but vehemently oppose the proposal of a cafe at this site as the paddling pool is a popular family area which a cafe would spoil especially as there other facilities nearby but feel that an ice cream kiosk would be sufficient. People come to Minnis Bay for the peace and tranquility here , enjoying the beach and walks along the promenade . Parking in particular is a great problem during the summer months with local residents finding it frustratingly difficult to park outside their own properties and the addition of a cafe as illustrated in the plans would severely increase the problem .
