P-05-927 Changing Places toilet facilities, Correspondence – Petitioner to Committee, 03.03.20

We are pleased to learn from the Minister's letter that she plans to issue a consultation paper on proposed changes to Approved Document M (Access to and use of buildings) supporting the Building Regulations to make provision of a CPT expected in certain buildings.

We as a campaign group wondered whether ICF capital grant money could be made available to help not-for-profit organisations fund Changing Places facilities. So for example Llanelli Wildfowl and Wetlands Trusts (WWT) request could be then made to Hywel Dda RPB ICF to increase access for people with profound learning disabilities to their communities. Has the Minister any view on how ICF money could be used to help increase Changing Places facilities?

Finally, until there are adequate Changing Places facilities is there anyway temporary measures could be put in place such as Mobiloos? When big events take place in towns where no CPT are available a large number of our communities can't take part, therefore are excluded.

Many thanks
