In a bid to actually reduce its own costs by closing the public toilets it still manages, Cornwall Council is encouraging businesses to open their toilets to the public and have special brown signs put up, for clearer guidance of people in need to use said conveniences.
According to a report in the local media, shop owners would not get any special incentive for opening up their toilets to the public. In fact, the Council believes that motivation for businesses would be that customers going in to spend a penny could end up spending a lot more in shops and cafes that sign up to the scheme.
It’s quite a well-known fact that maintaining public toilets open typically requires some solid investments, some of which can be easily recuperated by implementing a solid and reliable access restriction system, such as the one supplied by Toilet Turnstiles.
Our products are developed from the need for Local Authorities & Private Companies to provide Public Conveniences to a good standard and generate revenue for the general day to day maintenance, cleaning and upkeep etc, with the added benefit of preventing people from wandering into the toilets as they now have to pay for the privilege, or "spend a penny".
