The Argyll and Bute Council are set to reconsider their plans to close public toilets in order to slash spending across the area, a news report has revealed.
The move comes after councillors in Bute and Cowal, and elsewhere in the authority, expressed serious concerns about the impact of the cuts. The committee responsible for the aforementioned area rejected last month plans to close down the public toilets in Argyle Street and High Street in Rothesay, and to cut the subsidy given to Bute Victoriana to help run the Victorian toilets on Rothesay pier from £23,000 to £13,000 a year.
While keeping public toilets open can be quite a difficult task for cash-strapped public authorities, the truth of the matter is that setting an access charge that would cover operational costs and keeping the toilets open might quite often be a much more sensible choice.
Toilet Turnstiles has a long tradition of supplying a variety of access control solutions for public toilets, all of which are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access.
Additionally, in order to make the fee charging process a bit easier and faster, they pack a separate coin box that offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
