The public toilets across Lincoln that are underused will be sold off at auction by the local authority, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The facilities at St Peter at Arches and the freehold interest in the adjacent building will be sold off due to the council’s ongoing review into how it can save money.
Members of City of Lincoln Council’s Asset Management Group agreed that its relatively low levels of use, and a subsequent consultation, proved the toilets would be a good asset to sell.
They were also not to council standard anymore, and required more than minor work to be brought up to condition.Cllr Ric Metcalfe, Leader of the council and chair of the Asset Management Group, said: “We are aware there is a demand for improved toilet provision in the city centre and we remain committed to providing a network of good quality facilities at suitable locations.
“In the meanwhile, we will ensure all new developments include public toilet provision wherever possible.”
Since the public toilets’ operational costs can be quite significant at times, 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.
