A parish council in the Isle of Wight has take over the maintenance and running operations of the local public toilets, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Bembridge Parish Council decided to take on a lease of the Lane End toilet block and a lease of the disabled toilet within the lifeboat shop building. The council will seek to remove the radar key element of the disabled toilet as the block is only accessible by steps and also seek a break clause on the block in the event that the permitted use was non-operational due to events such as flooding.
Bembridge Parish Council will replace all 3 doors and frames, redecorate the insides, deep clean and also seek to install an Aco drain system on the surface outside due to poor surface water run-off.
Cllr Mike Tarrant Chairman of Bembridge Parish Council stated: "It is with great displeasure that we have no choice to take on the substandard toilets and the lack of support we have received from RNLI head office. However we do so as we realise this is an invaluable service to our residents and visitors”.
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.
