Public toilets across Baildon were officially re-opened recently after undergoing an extensive makeover, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Baildon Town Council has formally accepted the transfer of the public toilets in the town, and will be fully responsible for their running and maintenance from now on.
The move came after Bradford Council’s decision to withdraw all budget provision for the toilets.
The town council agreed to take over the toilets in October last year and a usage survey found an average of more than 400 people use it every week.
Peter Ashton, Baildon Town Council Chair, said things like public toilets are important for making the town attractive to visitors.
"We feel it’s absolutely essential for the economy of the town.
"It’s absolutely essential for us in terms of Walkers are Welcome status, where we have to have public toilets.
"But we realised they weren’t the most attractive place and we were going to have to spend some money on them."
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.
