Two public toilet facilities in Skegness are set for a revamp as part of a £500,000 improvement programme, with the East Lindsey District Council providing the necessary funds for the refurbishment process, a news report in the local media has revealed.
The town’s other public toilets will be open as usual during this time, with signs in place advising the public of alternative facilities.
Portfolio Holder for the Environment at the Council, Cllr Steve Newton, said:
“We have been pleased to be able to invest heavily in public toilets over recent years to bring them up to a good standard. We operate 24 blocks of public toilets across East Lindsey but many are old and in need of improvement. We have scheduled this work for what is traditionally a quieter time of year in Skegness while still being open in time for Easter so as to minimise disruption on local people and visitors.”
The overhaul will include redecoration, new cubicle doors and vanity units, energy efficient motion-sensored flushing and hand driers and proximity sensor-operated lighting.
Installing an access control system and charging a modest fee for the toilet’s maintenance would also be a good idea, especially since it could actually help the council ease the costs of running the public toilets, and this is exactly where Toilet Turnstiles could put its extensive experience to very good use.
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.
