Public toilets across Great Yarmouth are set to undergo an £155,000 revamp as part of a significant drive to improve provision in the borough, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Under these plans, the seasonal toilets at Hemsby, Second Avenue in Caister, Thurne, Scratby, Beach Road in Caister and Winterton, plus the year-round toilets at Euston Road in Great Yarmouth will undergo cosmetic and functional improvements.
In addition to approving the refurbishments, the committee discussed options for generating income to help fund the ongoing costs of public conveniences and agreed to progress the opportunity of offering space for suitable advertising within the facilities.
A report to the committee had stated either advertising or charging a fee would "support the continued operation of the facilities and ensure standards of refurbishment can be maintained."
Over the last three years, the council has undertaken a revamp of its most used year-round toilets, with works completed so far at The Jetty and The Conge in Great Yarmouth, The Ravine, Feathers Plain and Pier Head in Gorleston, The Green in Martham and Caister High Street.
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.
