A Cambridgeshire council is warned tourism could be affected if its plans to close over half the district’s public toilets go ahead. Councillor Roger Green is one of those who are warning Fenland Council against cutting the budget for conveniences. Cllr Green added: “I accept that we don’t need to keep all four of the public toilets, but I firmly believe we need at least two, otherwise it could cause real difficulties for visitors to the town.”
Local authorities can continue to provide Public Conveniences that are both open and kept to a good standard by using Toilet Turnstiles’ coin operated toilet turnstiles. The turnstiles generate revenue for the general day to day upkeep of the WC’s, with the added benefit of preventing people from wandering into the toilets as they now have to pay to enter. The coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold the coins, and they are perfect for high volumes of traffic.
