Parliamentary debates and questions

S5O-02917: Shona Robison (Dundee City East)

Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 20 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how it is working with PAMIS to provide more accessible changing places toilets by revising the building standards system, including in Dundee.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 27 February 2019

Our building standards consultation, on requiring Changing Places Toilets as part of larger new developments, was issued last week and runs until the 13th of May.

The consultation was developed following discussions with PAMIS in April last year. Earlier this month, officials discussed proposals with PAMIS prior to issuing the consultation.

Consultation proposals rely upon new development taking place and will be particularly effective in areas such as Dundee. Alongside regulation, we continue to encourage voluntary provision of these much-needed facilities.

The Scottish Government will continue to support PAMIS to ensure the Changing Places campaign delivers more Changing Places Toilets across Scotland.
