Why your views matter

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council is consulting with key stakeholders and the public to gauge opinion on the Changing Places Policy, to ensure our commitment to Changing Places in the Borough meets the needs of those who require additional equipment and/or space to use a toilet or change in a dignified and hygienic manner.

Our Policy works alongside the amendments made to Building Regulations in Technical Book R (AMD 8).

Council is committed to its equality and good relations duties as set out under section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 and the Rural Need Act 2016 and as part of this consultation we would like to ensure that individuals, groups and organisations have every opportunity to express their view.
