One of Clacton’s public toilet blocks will stay open despite being plagued by a range of problems, including the presence of homeless people and it being used by drug addicts, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Fears had been raised for schoolchildren who may use the Magdalen Green toilets, off Old Road, as it is on many pupils’ routes to White Hall Academy and Clacton Coastal Academy.
The councillor responsible for toilets, said the site would be looked as part of an overall review taking place on public conveniences across the district. He accepted though that there had been incidents of anti-social behaviour, including drug-taking which was evidenced by a hole in the wall for used needles.
“There was someone squatting on the green in front of the toilets but they were moved on,” he added.
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly the best approach by local authorities when faced with vandalism, and that’s 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.
