Public toilets located at Quay Point and Elphinstone car park, near the Barbican landing stage, will be demolished and replaced with “flexible, relocatable units” (most likely portaloos, by the sound of it), a news report in the local media has revealed.
In fact, it seems that the old loos were in such a poor state that demolition was considered to be the only suitable option.
Members of Plymouth’s Cabinet will be required to approve the 70,000 pounds plan at their next meeting, the proposal involving a minimum of six unisex toilets and a disabled/ family toilet with baby change facilities at the Quay Point site, as well as at least four unisex toilets and a disabled/ family toilet with baby change in Elphinstone car park.
Visitors will have to pay to use the new loos, as the Cabinet claims that he charge will help to keep anti-social behaviour in check and contribute to their upkeep. By charging for access, the local authority hopes to save about £16,000 a year.
Toilet Turnstiles supplies an extensive range of solutions designed specifically to restrict access to a public toilet and also charge for access to the premises.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box 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.
