A local council has decided to launch a public consultation into the future of public toilets in the area, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
Melton Council is asking people what they think about the town centre toilets which it says currently cost the town £88,000 per year to run.
Among the survey questions include whether people think the town centre needs publicly provided toilets in the town centre, in addition to those provided by retail premises, restaurants and pubs?, where should the toilets be situated?, when should they be open? and should any new toilet provision be fully staffed?
A council spokesman said matters it needs to consider regarding its future provision of public toilets are Accessibility to all users, Charging at point of entry, Cleanliness, Maintenance and Security for users.
The spokesman added: “The council wants to be sure it is meeting the needs of the people it serves and making the best use of its budgets and staff.
“These are difficult times for everyone and this means it’s even more important that the council delivers the services people need within the budgets that are available.”
Since the public toilets’ operational costs can be quite significant at times, 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.
