The Cornish town of Lostwithiel has been left without any public toilets after the town council failed to come to an agreement with Cornwall Council regarding their take-over, a news report in the local media has revealed.
The two parties had been in negotiation for almost two years about ownership of the toilets, plus the Cattle Market car park, which it leases from County Hall, and the old Market building, now home to a complementary health clinic.
Cornwall Council said the offer to refurbish the facilities at Church Lane was dependent on Lostwithiel Town Council taking over responsibility for the toilets and the town council had indicated late last year it did not wish to do that, resulting in the toilets being closed on December 31.
A town council working party has come up with options if the public toilets were to permanently close, including hiring portable loos for community events and directing visitors to the toilets at the community centre.
Toilet Turnstiles supplies an extensive range of solutions designed specifically to restrict access to a public toilet and also charge for access to the premises.
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.
