New public toilets could be built in Storrington under plans submitted by the village’s parish council, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The application for a unisex wheelchair accessible facility in the library car park in North Street has been lodged with Horsham District Council.
Storrington and Sullington Parish Council is looking to build the detached building on land assigned to it by HDC.
The building would have a red-facing brick facade with a tiled roof and steel faced access doors, and would be located on the site of the current electric car charging points, which are due to be replaced and relocated.
The parish council did look at whether the new toilet could be built to full Changing Places standards but this was found not to be possible because it will remain in an unattended building.
The application describes how due to a lack of on-site staff, vulnerability to vandalism, health and safety and manual handling risks associated with any hoist installed the facility would be difficult to manage.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, 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.
