Moray Council’s decision to close public toilets will likely affect local tourism, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The authority shut down 12 facilities at the end of June to save the administration £63,000, after rejecting the initial proposal to close all 32.
Holiday-makers who showed up at Fiddoch Park camp site were said to be irate after learning of the lack of toilet facilities there.
Derek Ross, Speyside Glenlivet independent councillor, was angered at the “short-sightedness” of the council when it came to closing the sites.
“It’s absolutely ridiculous and was a stupid mistake from the last administration to shut the toilets down,” he said. “The council need to stop bringing Moray into disrepute, as decisions like this make them a laughing stock.”
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.
