A SECOND bid to ditch the signs advertising Moray Council's new comfort scheme has failed.
Several councillors stated they had received complaints from the public that the signs created by the local authority’s own design team are both offensive and confusing.
But an attempt to get the matter reconsidered was voted down by 13 votes to 10 at the week's meeting of the full council.
Councillor Aaron Mclean (Forres, SNP) said he had received no complaints from the public, and added: "I struggle to see there is any real outrage".
Claire Feaver (Forres, Conservative), Frank Brown (Elgin North, Conservative) and George Alexander (Forres, Independent) all contradicted this.
However George Cowie (Buckie, Independent) stated he had recently seen very similar signs at both Inverness Airport and Waverley Station in Edinburgh.
The comfort scheme is being introduced to try compensate for the closure of public toilets across Moray.
Its logo will be displayed in windows to identify local businesses happy to allow the public to use their facilities instead.
