Section 7.6.2.3

Proposed Material Amendment

Amend Section 7.6.2.3 ‘People with Disabilities’ body text as follows:

People with disabilities and the mobility impaired face particular physical barriers to access and movement not only in buildings, but on footpaths, streetscapes, open spaces etc. The Council will encourage integration of accommodation within a mix of housing types providing mobility and access for people with disabilities in order to remove barriers to involvement in community and employment activities. Furthermore, the Council will also promote the provision of ‘Changing Places Facilities’ in certain instances . Standard accessible toilets do not meet the needs of all people with a disability. Some people often need extra equipment and space to allow them to use toilets safely and comfortably. These needs are met by ‘Changing Places’ facilities. The provision of these facilities should be provided in any new build large building development where the public have access in numbers and/ or where the public might be expected to spend longer periods of time, for example, educational establishments, health facilities, civic centres, public libraries, cultural buildings, motorway services, sport and leisure facilities, including large hotels. All proposals for development shall have regard to the provisions of the National Disability Authority’s document ‘Building for Everyone: A Universal Design Approach – Planning and Policy’ (2012) in order to ensure that access and movement through the development is available to all users of the development.
