Building Regulations: Impact on accessibility of ground floor toilets
Any dwelling unit that has been constructed after 1999 will have a ground floor toilet installed which has been designed to cater for any visiting wheelchair users.
During any re-fitting, this toilet should not be removed and the accessibility of the toilet should not be made any worse, as it would then be inadequate for future wheelchair users.
For these reasons, a building regulations application may be required if any alteration is to take place to an existing ground floor toilet.
