The future of a public toilet block in Wellington is set to be discussed at meeting after falling into disrepair and suffering an arson attack earlier this year, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
Mayor of Wellington, cllr Janet Lloyd, said: “Councillors are keen to work out the best way to ensure there is access to public toilets for the comfort of everyone in the town.
“Getting these toilets up and running again is not as simple as ordering a few repairs – the building and equipment need a major overhaul and many of the working parts are now obsolete, and the locking system needs a highly specialised contractor.
“Having a special council meeting to look at this issue will give councillors the opportunity to discuss this complicated matter in the detail it requires.”
Councillors had previously agreed to fund some short-term minor repairs to get more of the cubicles opened, which was estimated to cost around £500.
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.
