Residents in the village of Echt, in Aberdeenshire are demanding to have a say in the future of their local public toilet, which is currently earmarked for closure, a recent news report has been able to find.
Westhill councillor Iris Walker is backing residents in Echt to have their say on the future of the public toilet in the village. The councillor said: “Councillors agreed that a review was necessary but that any closures should be fully discussed with the communities involved.
“It may be that communities have ideas on how to run them or local businesses may want to consider working in partnership with the council to provide alternative facilities.
“We emphasised that this must happen and it is very disappointing that the administration of Aberdeenshire Council has allowed this to go ahead without consulting the residents and staff affected.”
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.
