Changing Places Toilets for Victoria Embankment and other city locations

Nottingham City Council is to accept funding of £115,000 for three facilities.

Grant funding from the Department of Levelling Up, Housing & Communities (DLUHC) will provide the facilities in the undercroft of the Memorial Gardens at Victoria Embankment, Notts County Foundation in Portland Leisure Centre and at the National Justice Museum.

There are currently just over 1,300 registered Changing Places toilets in England – these are larger accessible toilets for people who cannot use standard accessible toilets, with equipment such as hoists, curtains, adult-sized changing benches, and space for carers.

A delegated decision published by the city council states that the funding is for £25,000 for Victoria Embankment, £50,000 for the museum and £40,000 for the leisure centre.

The council says that these locations serve thousands of residents and visitors each year and form a crucial part of the city’s visitor and leisure economy.

Enabling these attractions to become more accessible to residents and visitors, particularly those with disabilities, will increase access to sport, leisure, creativity and culture, supporting the delivery of the following Council Plan priorities.

The projects are expected to be completed by September 2023.

•  Council interim housing director to be paid almost £6,000 a week

•  Two arrests after helicopter deployed in high-speed police pursuit through Rushcliffe villages
