Proposals to close down public toilets in Moray have been met with significant disapproval by local residents and politicians, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Moray Council announced that it will close fourteen more public toilets by the end of September. The local authority said it hopes communities will take them over but, if not, they will be shut, saving the local authority £63,000 over the next two years.
Moray council currently operates 18 toilets, with a further two leased to community organisations.
The toilets due to close include: Newlands Lane, Buckie; Seaview Road, Cummingston; Albert Place, Dufftown; Cooper Park, Elgin; West Dunes (North), Findhorn; Grant Park, Forres; Old Station, Ballindalloch; Tomnabat Lane, Tomintoul; Spey Street, Garmouth; Regent Square, Keith; East Street, Fochabers; Esplanade, Lossiemouth; Victoria Road, Craigellachie; New Street, Rothes.
Public toilets at the council’s six harbours will remain open to meet health and hygiene regulations.
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 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.
