Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER LAG recently commissioned a study to look into all aspects of toilet provision in remote rural locations.
The contract for the study was awarded through open tender in December 2009 and the subsequent study was undertaken by Fife-based Living Water.
The report was completed between January and April 2010 and takes a close look at all the types of composting toilets currently on the market as well as looking at systems connected to a mains water supply. There are also a number of interesting case studies that give an insight into the realities of running and maintaining various types of toilet.
Other sections within the report look at design considerations, health and safety, planning regulations and there is an appendices of contacts and suggested reading.
The Main Report and Case Studies are available to download as separate PDF files. Click on the appropriate title for the required file.
