Public toilets currently managed by the Wyre Forest District Council could soon be axed, together with a variety of other services supplied by the local authority, as it struggles with ever tightening budgets.
According to a report in the local media, the warning comes as district council bosses grapple with a 15 per cent cut in grants from central government. Wyre Forest District Council has already made cuts of £3.6m since 2010 but officials now learned that overall budgets will fall from almost £13m to closer to £10m.
The authority has also launched a public consultation to lay bare the circumstances the council is facing and allow residents to have their say on where money is spent.
The only real alternative to simply closing down a service that’s quite important for all the population in the area is to charge and access fee for the respective public conveniences that would cover maintenance and running costs, 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 comes 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.
