Residents in Ely, Cambridgeshire, have started a campaign to complain about the fact that public toilets in the town are closing too early, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The majority of the city’s public conveniences are owned and managed by East Cambridgeshire District Council, and currently close at around 5pm.
But people insist that some of the toilets, such as the ones in the Cloisters and Sacrist Gate, should be open later so that people out and about in the city centre in the evening can use them.
The district council, which is responsible for nine toilets in total in Ely, Littleport, Burwell and Fordham has recently launched a review to assess the way the public conveniences are currently run.
The authority says their opening hours, as well as potential refurbishments, are among the areas being looked at.
As part of the review, a working group will look at usage of the facilities, compare the district’s toilets with other areas as well as carrying out a cost analysis of improving them.
Installing a solid access restriction system is certainly something local authorities should consider, especially when faced with vandalism, and that’s 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.
