The last public toilet in the centre of Camborne has been saved after BID Camborne stepped it to provide the necessary funds over the winter, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
Camborne Town Council announced its decision not to provide funds for the facility over the winter. For this reason, BID Camborne stepped in and decided to allocate a part of its budget for keeping the facility open.
BID Camborne Manager, Mel Martin,aid: “In anticipation of this decision BID Camborne had already set aside funds to keep the toilet block fully open through the winter and we have informed Cornwall Council.
“Although we recognise the disabled access toilet was never under threat, our members believe it’s of paramount importance for all visitors and shoppers to have access to a public toilet and that meant BID Camborne directors had no alternative but to find the money.
“We’re actively encouraging the public to lobby the town council to keep the toilet block open from April 2016 when it is currently scheduled to close. BID Camborne welcomes the Rest Room scheme but believes it needs time to develop. We also believe that, as a visitor destination, a town the size of Camborne should offer at least one public toilet.”
Charging a fee for access is something authorities managing the toilets might consider, 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.
