Changing Places toilet is a big hit at Cornwall Services

Cornwall Services has seen visitor numbers increase since it opened its Changing Places toilet for disabled visitors at the end of June. It had the facility installed by Clos-o-Mat, after the need for the assisted, wheelchair-accessible toilet with additional fixtures of a changing bench and hoist was highlighted by customer Rachel George, who has a 10-year-old disabled son.

"We've had a fantastic response," said site manager Alex Lawson. "It is being used on a daily basis, with customers returning time and time again, and planning trips with a stop scheduled here, knowing they can safely use the toilets with dignity, from 6am-11pm, seven days a week.

"We have worked hard to let people know about it, with a media campaign for the unveiling, detailing it on our website, and very obvious signage on our roadside totem pole."

Cornwall Services is the only non-motorway service station in the UK to offer a Changing Places facility. Visitors who need to use it just ask a member of staff.

The wheelchair-accessible room is 7.5m2, with an adult-sized, height adjustable changing bench and ceiling track hoist.

Do you agree with ITM Power - that the government should provide equivalent financial support for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) infrastructure as it has already provided for plug-in battery electric vehicle (BEV) infrastructure?
