Consultation Proposals for amendment of Technical Booklet Guidance to Part R (Access to and use of buildings) – Changing Places Toilets Provision

Consultation opened on 28 July 2021. Closing date 20 October 2021.


Changing Places toilet (CPT) facilities meet the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities as well as people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis.

The Department of Finance (DoF) intends to implement amendments to local Building Regulations technical guidance that would ensure new/relevant large buildings commonly used by the public are fitted with CPT facilities in a properly targeted and proportionate manner, thus enhancing equality and inclusion within the built environment.
