Plans for new public toilets in the Isle of Wight have been put forward by Ventnor Town Council to the Isle of Wight Council, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The block of 3 toilets will be located on the Central Car Park on High Street and will include two stalls and one disabled facility with a baby changing unit.
The town council will decide next Monday whether or not to make the toilets pay-to-use if the application is granted.
David Bartlett, clerk at Ventnor Town Council, said it is the council’s commitment to improve the town centre. He said:
“The absence of a central toilet facility is particularly for people with disabilities as the only public toilet with appropriate facilities is on Marlborough Road and approached by a daunting slope.”
Toilet Turnstile UK – expert suppliers of access restriction and payment solutions for the public convenience sector
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 very good use.
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.
