Five public toilets in Cheltenham will close with a few others set to undergo refurbishment, a recent news report has been able to suggest.
The public toilets in Bath Terrace (in Bath Road car park), Imperial Gardens and Ambrose Street and Town Centre East will be permanently closed as of next year.
Furthermore, toilets in Montpellier Gardens and Pittville Park will be refurbished, while Sandford Park will see a new public toilet built alongside its current one.
Cheltenham Borough Council said keeping all of the town’s public toilets open is a "costly obligation".
A council report said: "The majority of the public toilet facilities are in need of major refurbishment which will put substantial pressure on the planned maintenance budgets over the next 10 years. Operationally, these facilities are also expensive to run, and while it is desirable to offer this public amenity, they will continue to be a costly obligation on the authority’s budgets.
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.
