Changing Places Toilets: planning guide

Information on Changing Places Toilets (CPTs) and guidance to those considering installing a CPT in both existing and new buildings.

Ministerial Foreword

I am incredibly committed to increasing Changing Places Toilets provision across Scotland.

In my previous role as Minister for Local Government, I amended Scottish Building Regulations to make it the law that Changing Places Toilets are built in all new large public buildings. So this is a natural next step.

Access to toilet facilities is a fundamental human right and I am committed to realising our vision that Scotland respects and fulfils our human rights obligations.

I want to see attitudes transform across Scotland so that more people are aware of, and understand the importance of, Changing Places Toilet facilities.

This responsibility doesn’t just fall to government. We need to work together as one Scotland to highlight the incredible value of these facilities in opening up our communities for all, and encourage development across the country.

The provision of such fundamental facilities offers everyone in Scotland dignity and freedom.

Kevin Stewart MSP, Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care
