Two public toilets in Godalming and Farncombe are set for closure due to budget constraints, Waverley Borough Council has recently announced.
The lavatory’s at Crown Court Car Park in Godalming and North Street in Farncombe will be shut, but the council says it will work with local businesses so that residents and visitors can use toilets elsewhere.
Councillor Jim Edwards, Portfolio Holder for Environment at Waverley Borough Council, said: “We understand this may not be a popular decision, however, public toilets incur high maintenance and running costs.
“The council’s toilets also need significant investment to bring them up to a better standard; that funding is something which we just don’t have.”
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.
