Changing places toilets: government response
The government response to the consultation sets out the amendments, which will take effect on 1 January 2021, being made to Approved Document M: Access to and use of buildings, Volume 2 – Buildings other than dwellings.
It details which new, large buildings, or those subject to a material change of use, commonly used by the public will be mandated to provide changing places toilets, as well as more detailed analysis of the responses received during the consultation.
This consultation seeks views on how we can increase provision of Changing Places toilets in specific new, large buildings commonly used by the public, as well as those undergoing building works.
Our proposed approach is to introduce a mandatory requirement for Changing Places toilets in Building Regulations.
