Public toilets at Stearmans Yard carpark in Wells are set to be completely remodelled as part of a £600,000 project by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The new facilities would include a separate male and female toilet along with a ‘changing places’ facility, three accessible or gender neutral toilets and a family room.
Wells Town Council has objected the plans, and in a public statement said: "Although the town council agrees better toilet facilities are needed the design of the building, it particularly the cladding, has no place in the conservation area.
"The proposed building does not fit in with nearby buildings and would make for an unacceptable precedent."
The Norfolk Coastal Partnership also raised concerns about the materials used in the redevelopment.
The new toilet block replaces the previous loos that were located nearby but dated back to the 1920s. It also incorporates a new store room for the parish council in which it keeps items such as traffic cones, litter-pickers, signs and bunting.
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
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.
