Residents of a beautiful tourist spot in Cornwall are protesting against the closure of the local public toilets, which could have potentially devastating effects on footfall in the area, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
People in Sennen Cove fear an impending closure of public toilets by Cornwall Council will have a devastating impact on the local area. The announcement to close the beach car park toilets in April 2016 comes following a notice earlier this year that they will no longer be open during the week over non-seasonal months.
The proposals for closure of the toilets follow major cuts by Cornwall Council to public services, many of which are now being devolved to parish and town councils, as the Council aims to cut £196 million from its budget over four years.
Though it acknowledged securing a private sector solution would have been difficult, Cornwall Council stated: "Discussions with local stakeholders, especially Town and Parish Councils, is particularly encouraging and we would be delighted if at least 80% of the original list of 253 toilet blocks (those toilet blocks which became the responsibility of Cornwall Council in 2009/10) remained open in the long term, as a result of these conversations, despite the central Government cuts."
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.
