Draft Specialist Change Facilities Policy

A draft policy on the provision of specialist change facilities in Marlborough has been developed. These facilities are dedicated areas where people with multiple or complex disabilities can be changed or toileted by their caregiver in a safe and clean environment. The Council currently has one facility at Liz Davison Park in central Blenheim known as Te Huri but more facilities have been sought through the Council’s Annual Plan process.

Feedback is now being sought on the draft policy.
