Ex-public toilets earmarked to become two mini maisonettes are still on the market for £230,000 after failing to sell at auction.

After an earlier planning application was rejected, and an appeal to a planning inspector failed, Epsom councillors approved, in January, a revamped application to turn the ex-Ewell Village public toilets, opposite Bourne Hall, in Spring Street, Ewell, into two one-bedroom homes.

The two tiny homes would be built on a site which measures just 0.019 acres after the toilets were auctioned off by the cash-strapped council in May 2012 for £68,000 - a move which was described as "degrading" by the elderly population of Ewell village.

They were then sold on to a mystery buyer for more than £80,000 with planning permission.

The little amenities are now up for grabs again, with auctioneers and estate agents Andrew Scott Robertson marketing them. 

The ex-toilets failed to sell in an auction held by the company in April, with the last bid reaching £227,500, and are still available to buy.

Dominic Smith, of Andrew Scott Robertson, said: "They’ve been through the auction and didn’t sell so they’re open to offers from anybody coming forward now."
