Charging a 20p access fee for access to the public toilets in Lichfield and Burntwood might prove to be insufficient in order to provide the funds required to keep them open, a new report in the local media has recently revealed.
Existing plans to introduce charges for public toilets across Lichfield and Burntwood will not bring in as much money as previously thought, a report to an overview and scrutiny meeting has now revealed.
The results cast doubt on the local authority’s suggestion that charging for the use of public toilets could generate an addition £38,000 a year – with the installation of charging mechanisms costing £28,000. And the report revealed that the council is now examining plans to re-assess the viability of some of its sites.
Despite the doubts regarding the number of people ready to “spend a penny”, the truth of the matter is that installing access restriction solutions and 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.
