A local council has been urged to add more public toilets in order to meet a “desperate need”, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Councillor Mark Wilson raised the issue with South Lakeland District Council officials and called for them to serve the Croftlands estate play area.
Cllr Wilson said: “People are coming to me to say we could do with a toilet up there because on these hot days there are sometimes 300 to 400 people at the play area. The nearest are at the community centre which is hardly appropriate.
“Residents are having to put up with the residue of people needing to go to the toilet,” said the Labour councillor for Ulverston East.
Lawrence Conway, the chief executive of SLDC, told the meeting that in 2008 the council had gone out to encourage a community toilets scheme, which could be expanded to other areas of South Lakeland.
“There was a big push at that time on giving local communities the opportunity to try and deal with these issues for themselves,” he said.
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.
