The owner of a conference centre is celebrating after having a
toilet and kitchen moved away from the front of his conference centre days
before an important wedding exhibition.
The temporary loo was set up outside Queen’s Hall, in London Road,
Alvaston, for workmen carrying out traffic signals work for the city council.
Derby City Council issued the firm with a permit for the structure and the
contractor said it was told by the council put it outside the centre.
Sohan Perdesi bought the former Methodist mission two years ago and has
developed it into a conference centre.
He expected the loo would be removed when the work was finished directly
outside his building but was concerned when this did not happen and contacted
the council on Tuesday.
After frantic discussions, the structure had been moved round the corner
into Canal Street.
Mr Perdesi told the Derby Telegraph: “We’ve got a wedding fair
coming up on Sunday just to introduce ourselves and show we are open.
“It’s wouldn’t have been very nice having a toilet and kitchen outside
that I wasn’t even consulted about.”
The wedding fair is open on Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
