In order to make budget savings, the city council has warned that a number of public toilets in Exeter may be closed. A report that went to the city council’s Scrutiny Community proposed reducing the city’s public toilets by ten to 16. Closure would save the council £60,000 a year. Cllr Kevin Mitchell, Lead Councillor for Environment and Leisure, said: "Exeter currently provides more public toilets than many towns and cities in the UK and any cuts would still leave the city with a good network of public conveniences.”
Toilet Turnstiles, part of the well-renowned and reliable Tensor plc group of security companies, offer secure coin operated toilet turnstiles that allow local authorities to maintain a good network of public conveniences. The turnstiles are made with duty rated stainless steel and have lockable lids, plus a range of other security features. They have the dual purpose of securing entry via a nominal fee – thus discouraging casual use and abuse – plus providing a regular income to pay for their general upkeep.
