The public toilets in Cleethorpes’ Grant Street are set to reopen almost two years after being closed – but will charge 30p for access, a recent news report has been able to find.
The public conveniences were shut in February 2014 due to council cutbacks, but are set to reopen in the near future with a turnstile, with customers being charged 30p a time.
"The Grant Street public toilets in Cleethorpes will be brought back into use and will also have a turnstile fitted," said a council spokesman.
The decision to introduce charging for public toilets was made after consultation with people in the borough in November 2014.
Opinions gathered from residents and visitors about the provision of public toilets and whether or not people were willing to pay to use them was used to inform cabinet members before the decision was made.
A report conducted in 2014 on the issue found that, using footfall figures, a 30p charge would generate around £420,000 per year.
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.
