Changing Places

Accessible Beaches

Subject: Anthony Bartl

Changing Places provide suitable facilities for people who cannot use standard accessible toilets.

A Changing Places facility allows people with high support needs to fully participate in the community. This may include people with an acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, and motor neurone disease, as well as many other people with a disability.

Changing Places facilities provide:
Height-adjustable adult-sized change table
Constant-charging ceiling track hoist system
Centrally-located peninsula toilet
Circulation spaces as defined in the design specifications
An automatic door with a clear opening of 950 mm at a minimum (1100 mm for beach and lake locations)
A privacy screen.
