Public toilets are a basic need regardless of age, creed or gender. Although details are scarce, according to Government figures there has been a consistent downward trend. Among the most reliable current figures is Valuation Office Agency data on the number of toilets with a rateable value. This shows a decrease from 5,410 toilets in 2000 to 4,423 in 2008.
The lack of compulsion of local authorities to provide them has resulted in standards and availability of public toilets varying widely across the country. However, local authorities have existing planning, licensing and leasing powers by which they can ensure that public toilets are provided for the general public. The Tensor group’s range of toilet turnstiles is a way of stimulating an increase in the number of public toilets.
