Public toilets in Prudhoe could be shut down as Northumberland County Council has started a thorough review into the provision of public toilets in the county as part of cost-cutting measures, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Prudhoe councillors are concerned that a review of the town’s toilets could lead to its two public conveniences – at the Royal British Legion and Roads End – being closed for good.
Chairman Eileen Burt reported back on a meeting she had attended with the county council’s head of neighbourhood services and explained that an asset transfer of the county’s conveniences to local councils was not being considered, but counters may be used to estimate use of the facilities, with the possibility of them being opened on a seasonal basis.
Since the public toilets’ operational costs may indeed be quite significant at times, 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 puts 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.
