The provision of public toilets across Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch will be fully assessed by BCP Council, the local authority has recently revealed.
According to a news report in the local media, environment portfolio holder, councillor Felicity Rice, said a “full review” of facilities would be carried out. Her comments followed a call by a member of the public for more toilets to be provided in Bournemouth.
Shortly after the council’s ruling coalition was formed in June, it announced it would spend half a million pounds on reopening and refurbishing public toilets in Poole.
It said the work was part of efforts to harmonise services across the three towns.
But Cllr Rice has now promised a conurbation-wide review of provision will be carried out.
She said: “We will be doing a full toilet review and will be taking into account your thoughts.
“Facilities in the Lower Gardens are complemented by sites at car parks and the many shops and restaurants that have facilities for its customers.
“Seafront services manage 24 sites across the Bournemouth and Poole seafront and the number of public toilets available has increased in recent years.”
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.
