Building permanent public toilets in two Glenrothes parks remains only a distant prospect, due mostly to the lack of funding for such a project, a news report in the local media has revealed.
A petition with over 100 names was already presented to the committee last month, requesting toilets to be installed at Riverside Park. The area, a three-star VisitScotland attraction, is used by schools and community groups, as well as the public, although there is a belief that its use is stifled by a lack of toilets.
However, councillors have also receives a report clearly stating that the process of installing three permanent toilets would cost £94,000 per park, with an annual maintenance cost of £14,000.
Although the council doesn’t currently have the funds required for building and running the toilets, the prospect of implementing an access restriction system and charging for access might be something the council should take into account as a source of long-term revenue, 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.
