The future of public toilets in the town of Fowey, in Cornwall, is in doubt, as the town council is unwilling to take them over unless Cornwall Council provides more information on the costs involved, a news report in the local media has revealed.
According to the aforementioned source, the town council has estimated that, if its takes over Fowey’s conveniences, it will have to pass the cost on to residents by at least doubling the precept, which is not likely to represent an acceptable solution, all things considered.
On the other hand, a lot of businesses in the town rely on tourism and when visitors arrive to find that a basic amenity like a public toilet is no longer available, many will not return.
When no other funding solutions are available, installing an access control system and charging a modest fee for the toilet’s maintenance would also be a good idea, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could put its extensive experience to very good use.
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.
