When is an accessible toilet inaccessible – when businesses store things in it

When is an accessible toilet inaccessible – when businesses store things in it

Accessible toilets of course provide space for people to turn and best manoeuvre in the room but with this space comes the thought ! shall we feel this space with something, we have seen everything from highchairs, spare chairs, fold up tables, blown up balloons ..

For some they can get around this added obstacles but for others they cannot, the biggest barrier I came across was wanting to go to watch a band play in a local pub that I knew had an accessible toilet so great only to find that the way they made room for the band was storing the furniture in the accessible loo so had to come home again as the accessible loo had become inaccessible.

So Wave-length would like you to send images of accessible loos used for storage and we will create an offenders wall of shame and hope to encourage others to stop this practice, there is a reason that this space is provided.
