The four public toilet blocks on Mersea Island have been saved from closure after West Mersea Town Council reached an agreement with Colchester Council, which runs the toilets, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.
Last month Colchester Council said it would stop funding public toilets across the borough to save cash.
Originally the town council said it could not afford to run them, but, after talks, an agreement has been reached.
Now, West Mersea will take control of all four toilets and will look for a private company to run them at a more competitive price.
Charging a fee for access is the most sensible solution when it comes to public toilets’ funding, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could really puts 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.
