The Mayor of Hailsham in East Sussex was recently joined by several other town officials for the official opening of the brand new public conveniences located in the town’s North Street, a recent report in the local media was able to reveal.
The facilities have been built within a central building leased long-term by the local authority and are free to use and open to the public seven days a week, 8am to 8pm.
The unisex facility comprises two cubicles, one of which is fully wheelchair accessible and includes baby-changing facilities.
Town Clerk, John Harrison, said: “We are delighted to provide the brand new public toilets to replace those in Vicarage Field which were maintained and closed by Wealden District Council a while back. The town council looked into the possibility of refurbishing that facility but due to its condition and high level of asbestos present, this project proved too costly and the more viable option was to build new facilities from scratch in the building in North Street which the council now leases.”
While allowing residents to access the public conveniences free of charge is certainly a noteworthy achievement, charging a small fee for access is certainly a widespread way of helping cash-strapped councils, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts its experience to good work.
