Camden Council has revealed plans to charge 40p for access to public toilets in its area in an effort to plug a £70million funding gap, a recent news report in the local media was able to reveal.
The plans are part of a whole series of new money-making schemes devised by the council to deal with government cuts, which force the local authority to cut £70m over the next three years.
Camden’s nine free-to-use public toilets, including sites in South End Green and Pond Square, Highgate, cost the council £200,000-a-year to maintain and will be subject to charges under the new plans like the charges levied on toilets at mainline train stations.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts its experience to good work.
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.
