Merton CIL has written to Merton's Director of Environment & Regeneration to express concerns about their decision not to apply for government changing places funding.
We would like to see the council reconsider this decision. In order for our borough to be as inclusive as possible, we will need to see more changing places facilities. There is a need for at least one changing places toilet in each of the main centers in Merton (Mitcham, Morden, Colliers Wood, Raynes Park and Wimbledon).
We are also keen for the council to work with Merton CIL and local Deaf and Disabled people to achieve a more strategic approach to developing changing places facilities in the borough and establish a timescale within which this can be achieved.
