Two public toilets in West Norfolk are set for closure as a result of the local council’s cost-cutting plans, a news report in the local media has found.
The facilities in Gaywood and on Downham’s Howdale face demolition, but a third site at Old Hunstanton, which had also faced the axe, could be the subject of a further review to determine its future, along with those at Holme.
And officials are also recommending spending £40,000 on refurbishing the facilities at Wales Court in Downham, before transferring them to town council management.
Officers say the measures, which also include transferring the costs of four sites to special expenses, would save the council around £40,000 from its budgets, plus the equivalent of a further £26,000 in staff time that would be allocated to other duties.
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.
