Councillors in Bath and North East Somerset have voted to review cuts to public toilets.
Toilets have been closed completely in Twerton, Peasedown and Weston - despite campaigns to keep them open. Now the council has voted to pause the current programme of reductions and consult with residents on the changes.
An e-petition has been started by campaigners opposed to the closure of public toilets across Bristol. The city council says shutting 22 loos would save around half a million pounds, but 16 would remain open. A final decision is expected at a meeting next month.
Public toilets earmarked for closure in Bath could get a reprieve.
Bath and North East Somerset Council said it would hold a public debate if a petition gained 1,000 signatures.
A pensioner who held a protest about the closure of public toilets in Bath has now handed over a petition containing two and half thousand signatures.
Lin Patterson spent three days living and sleeping in the toilets at Twerton to convince the council to keep them open. She says they are a vital public resource.
