A local authority will hold on vote on whether to reopen a set of closed public toilets, a recent news report has been able to suggest. 

The toilets, one on High Street and the other near the Roman amphitheatre, were closed by the council along with four others in Newport, were cut as part of the council’s 2018/19 budget and the closure was expected to save £20,000. 

But the move was met with anger by Caerleon residents, who called the idea "disgusting" and "unbelievable". 

Now, Caerleon councillor Joan Watkins has tabled a motion to reopen the two Caerleon toilets. 

The motion to reopen the facilities comes after hundreds of people signed a petition with the same aim. Since being set up by Caerleon resident Huw Davies, the petition has attracted over 600 signatures. 

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.
