In June, Carmarthenshire Council removed the existing portable toilets in Burry Port harbour due to vandalism.
Now the town council, Pembrey and Burry Port Town, have entered discussions on a potential offer of land for new toilets run by the town council.
The removal of the toilets was controversial, with the county council saying that they were "very poor" and "an unacceptable health hazard", while many residents signed a petition to bring them back. The importance of access to public toilets is, of course, obvious to the residents.
The letter will be discussed at a town council committee meeting on September 4.
County councils do not have a statutory duty to provide public toilets, but have to assess the need for them and publish a local toilet strategy.
You can see previous coverage we have posted of Carmarthenshire Council ‘sstruggle to provide enough toilets for its residents and growing number of tourists.
One way that the county council could have more confidence in their public toilets avoiding more vandalism is to install an reputable access system.
That’s exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really put 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.
