Plimmerton's public toilets have been vandalised five times in recent months, but will not be closed to the public at nights.

The toilets at Plimmerton Domain and on the suburb's south beach have both been targeted, with the latter smashed by a brick in late November.

"They've been completely smashed or defaced," says Plimmerton Residents' Association chairman Colin Bleasdale. "We're pretty brassed off about it." Police have been informed but the culprit is likely to be someone from outside the suburb who travelled there by train to cause trouble, Mr Bleasdale says.

"It's pretty hard to pin anything on anybody."

Locking the toilets at night would be unfair on the people who use the beach on summer evenings and cause no trouble, he says.

"At the end of the day it's for everybody to use."

It would also be too expensive for the council to pay someone to lock them.
