Local planning authorities are required to publicise and consult on all planning applications, including those for Changing Places lavatories. Whilst disability organisations are not statutory consultees on planning applications, we would expect local planning authorities to consider whether there are planning policy reasons to engage local disability organisations who are likely to have an interest in a proposed development.
