Some of the candidates for the Rusthall Parish Council elections in 2011 stated they would seek to promote the reinstatement of the public lavatories in Rusthall. They remain closed and it looks likely they will be demolished. A planning application seeks permission to build a private dwelling on the site.
The Parish Council is hell-bent on turning the old fire station into a parish office and a space for youth work. Why does the Council need an office? It is not as though the Council does much; many parishes do not suffer for lack of an office.
