Lincoln Council has revealed plans to charge 20p for access to three facilities as part of plans to combat government funding cuts, a news report has been able to reveal recently.
The City of Lincoln Council said charging for facilities at Lucy Tower Street, Castle Square and Tentercroft Street could bring in about £30,000 per year, adding that the changes were part of a range measures to meet savings targets of £4m per annum.
A report by the council said: "Increasingly charging has become recognised as a way by which visitors to a district, who impact on local infrastructure but pay nothing directly towards its upkeep, can financially contribute to the costs."
The cost of installing barriers at the three sites is estimated to be about £30,000. City of Lincoln Council, which has a total of eight public conveniences, said all three of the pay toilets are highly rated by the British Toilets Association.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, 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.
