The public conveniences on Longforth Road in Wellington have been a cause of contention for Wellington Town Council since they were taken over from the district authority, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The town council has been considering its options regarding the toilet block, and what would be best for the community.
Despite warnings from one member, Cllr Marcus Barr, that the toilets were expensive liability that could bankrupt the town council, there was a consensus that conveniences near the northern end of town and the coach stop were essential.
After hearing from the elected members, it was decided the town council would provide funding for a specialised professional report on the best route forward, with the goal of providing two, possibly three, cubicles in a refurbished and modernised facility.
Once an expert report on the toilets has been commissioned and received, the council will meet to review the most effective and affordable plan of action.
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.
