Many residents and visitors with accessibility requirements plan their trips around the availability of accessible facilities like the Changing Places rooms.

The introduction of these facilities to more towns in means that more can visit without worry.

Alternative public conveniences in these towns will remain open throughout works to provide these new facilities.

Hear from Cllr. Eric Seward, portfolio holder for Finance & Assets:

Once these schemes at Wells and Fakenham are completed and open to the public, works will then commence to provide new facilities in North Walsham and Sheringham.

The Council regards the provision of good quality public conveniences as a key service, underpinning the district’s tourism offering as well as town centre economies.

Hear from Fakenham councillors Cllr. Christopher Cushing and Cllr. Jeremy Punchard:

The Council maintains a number of public toilets, including Changing Places facilities across the District.
