New Changing Places toilets have been installed in the New Forest.

The new Changing Places toilets will ensure that disabled people, as well as their families and caregivers, have access to suitable facilities.

In Ringwood, the Changing Places toilet has been installed in The Furlong short-stay car park, opposite the main toilet block.

The new toilets feature a range of amenities, including height-adjustable changing benches, hoists, and additional space for wheelchair users, and can be accessed at any time using a RADAR key.

Salisbury Journal: Cllr Geoffrey Blunden, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Sustainability, said: “The installation of new Changing Places toilets in Ringwood and Brockenhurst shows our ongoing commitment to creating and maintaining an inclusive district, where everyone can enjoy spending time in the New Forest.

"We’re also very grateful to have worked together with charity Hadley's Heroes, who has provided us with invaluable advice when designing and installing these facilities.”

Changing Places toilets have also been installed in Brockenhurst within the existing toilet block in the car park.

New Forest District Council has been provided with £208,000 in funding from the Government’s Department for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities to install the Changing Places toilets.
