Public toilets in Poole are set to undergo a £492k refurbishment scheme, a news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Under these new plan, toilets at Poole Quay and Lake Pier are now set to reopen, with six other blocks – Poole Park West Gate, The Haven, Hamworthy Park, Baiter, Whitecliff and The Watch Station – are to be refurbished.
Rows erupted in 2017 over the decision by the former Poole Borough Council to close facilities. Council leader Vikki Slade said the move would "harmonise services" in the three towns.
"Residents and visitors to Poole are seriously short-changed by a lack of toilets compared to Bournemouth and Christchurch," she said.
The council said the funding would be taken from an under-spend by the former Poole council.
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.
