The only public toilet block in the town of Whitehave, Cumbria, is set to be demolished, after members of the local council confirmed that the available budget prevents them from re-opening it.
In fact, according to a report in the local media, the local authorities claim that even keeping the building up costs them money so, unless a group steps up and takes it over, they will bring it down in the immediate future.
The toilets were closed back in April after Copeland council had its funding cut by central government. The authority must save around £3m by 2015 and has cut a host of services as a result, starting with the public conveniences in the area.
Although the lack of funds significantly affects local authorities in charge of keeping the public toilets open, charging a small fee for access might avert it, and that’s 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 comes 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.
