Public toilets in Diss might be demolished as part of the county council’s plans to save money, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
The public toilets located in Mere’s Mouth are one of three public toilet facilities located in Diss, with others being in Diss Park and in the Corn Hall.
Currently owned by South Norfolk Council (SNC), ownership of the toilets was due to transfer to the Diss Town Council on at the end of March 2018, following an £80,000 refurbishment of the building.
However, a structural survey of the toilet block carried out last year found serious problems with the building’s foundations, leading SNC to decide refurbishing the building would be uneconomical and instead suggesting the toilets should be demolished.
Now, the town council must decide whether or not to accept the toilet block in its current state or allow SNC to demolish the building, meaning the town would lose its most central toilet provision.
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.
