Two public toilet blocks will be handed over to the community.
Kirklees Cabinet agreed to asset transfer the toilets on Towngate in Holmfirth to Holme Valley Parish Council while the Holme Village Residents Association will formally take over the public loos in Holme village.
Cabinet members had to agree to the freehold asset transfer to both organisations, but they included a covenant to ensure both buildings are restricted to community use and cannot be sold off to net a profit.
In Holmfirth’s case, the parish council will be allowed to lease 30% of the floorspace commercially to cover the costs of running the toilets.
In the Holme case, a covenant will be added that the building must be retained for community use however the residents association wants to retain it as public toilets and have been managing and running them since January 2012.
Clr Nigel Patrick, Holme Valley South Conservative, said: “It shows what can be achieved when communities work together and are given time to make things happen.”
Clr Graham Turner, Cabinet member for Resources, said it would off-load liability from the council and retain the toilets for community use, adding there remained just one public toilet that remained up for grabs.
He said they were working with Mirfield Town Council to decide the future of the toilets there and hoped it would be resolved soon.
