Councillors are reconsidering a district’s toilet plans on a case by case basis. Next week Maldon District Council will be reviewing money paid to parish councils who want to run their own public loos. Priority would be given to councils which were previously served by automated toilets. Also going before the council committee is a report which highlights the shortcomings of the community toilet scheme dating from 2008 because businesses are reluctant to open up their toilets to all members of the public.
Toilet Turnstiles provides a solution to councils hamstrung by WC provision. Coin operated turnstiles manufactured for gaining access to public loos prevent casual wandering into the toilets as people now have to pay for the privilege, or ‘spend a penny’. The turnstile bodies have lockable lids to prevent unwanted access and are securely mounted to the floor plate. The coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins, and both single and double half height turnstiles are available.
