Changing Places Toilets should be conveniently located to maximise access and use for all building users. There are several factors to be considered to optimise the location of a Changing Places Toilet. 

Ideally a Changing Places Toilet should be located:

  • adjacent to other sanitary facilities, having regard to the operation and use patterns of the building or outdoor amenity 
  • in proximity to designated accessible parking or set down areas
  • to minimise the distance a disabled person has to travel from the arrival point
  • to allow for security and management arrangements that enable ease of access (refer to Section 6.3 below) 

For example, a Changing Places Toilet within a school that is used after hours for community events and sporting activities should be located so that it is readily available for use during all opening times.
