Despite the lack of funding, more public toilets are required in Carmarthenshire for its 185,000 residents and three million annual visitors, according to residents and councillors.
As per a report by a local news outlet, there were 739 responses to two consultations on a draft local toilets strategy, which was discussed by a council scrutiny committee.
The report before members said Carmarthenshire had 19 toilet blocks and a further 21 operated by town and community councils and other local groups.
Nine of the toilet blocks are run by toilet company Danfo and cost 20p per visit.
Councils do not have a statutory requirement to provide public toilets but councillor Deryk Cundy said: "Our job is to reflect what the people need and what the people want."
He said he felt the authority should use its growing tourism revenue to increase the toilet supply.
Charging a fee for access is quite often the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding – and indeed keeping these facilities open for the general public, and this is 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.
