More than 120 Ferring residents are questioning Arun District Council’s proposal to close two public toilets as part of a drive to save £4million by 2020. The toilets are located at the village green and the Rife near the Bluebird cafe.
In order to decide which toilets were to be closed, the council scored each public toilet under categories including disabled access, blue flag beach, visitor attraction, shopping access, green space and transport not including buses. Arun District Council was urged to consult with parishes, following the release of a report proposing the closure of non-priority toilets.
David Bettiss, chairman of Ferring conservation group, supported Ferring’s residents. He said: “These proposals would cause serious public health consequences for both residents and our visitors. “
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.
