The new City Hall building at London’s Royal Docks is now, like its predecessor, more inclusive thanks to the addition of a Changing Places toilet.
With the installation of this toilet, which is open to both staff and the public during working hours, the Greater London Authority (GLA) is increasing accessibility and showing a commitment to inclusion at the venue.
Changing Places toilets supplier, Innova Care Concepts, supplied and installed the new facility and Changing Places Consortium colleagues from MDUK were delighted to visit City Hall to catch up with the team and take a sneak peek at the new toilet.
Derek Oliver, Changing Places Manager at Innova Care Concepts, said: “It is vital that local authorities acknowledge the need for more Changing Places so it is great to see City Hall setting a great example for others to follow. By including this new facility, the Greater London Authority are not only enhancing accessibility for their staff, they are also helping provide more accessible toilets in East London for the public to use.”
About Greater London Authority
The Greater London Authority (GLA), based at City Hall on the Royal Docks, is the devolved regional governance body of Greater London, the administrative area of London. It consists of two political branches: the executive Mayoralty (currently led by Sadiq Khan) and the 25-member London Assembly, which serves as a means of checks and balances on the former. Since May 2016, both branches have been under the control of the London Labour Party. The authority was established in 2000, following a local referendum, and derives most of its powers from the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and the Greater London Authority Act 2007.
