A local authority has decided to reopen a group of public toilets located in a popular shopping venue in Wiltshire, according to a news report in the local business media.
The Royal Wootton Bassett town council decided to reopen one of the public toilets in Borough Fields which was closed in April by Wiltshire Council after it gave up responsibility for providing public loos.
Now part of the toilet block was re-opened while plans are made for a £70,000 revamp early next year.
“It’s a great relief,” said mayor Mary Champion. “There has been a lot of work put in by council officers and members of the council to enable us to have these toilets for Wootton Bassett.”
Having inspected the facilities they decided to open the disabled toilet as a temporary measure because it was in the best condition. The others have suffered repeated vandalism and are in a poor state.
The others are going to be redesigned as two single units in a bid to make them less attractive to drug dealers and vandals. CCTV surveillance will also be installed on the roof to help cut antisocial behaviour.
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly the best approach by local authorities when faced with vandalism, and that’s 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.
