Disabled Toilets at Carless Eco-Centre

Moor Pool Heritage Trust By Moor Pool Heritage Trust

The Carless Eco-Centre hosts our education programme linked to local schools and a community allotment. We wish to provide the convenience of on-site toilet facilities with disabled access.

Moor Pool Heritage Trust (MPHT) is a registered charity established in 2011. It is non-profit, run by a Board of Trustees and volunteers and in 2019 it was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. Through grants, fundraising and many hours of volunteer work the original builder’s yard has been transformed into the Carless Eco-Centre with a log cabin, greenhouse, raised beds and wheelchair access. It is used by our education programme linked to local schools, hosts a community allotment and runs numerous school and holiday activities. The current toilet facilities are at the Moor Pool Hall but we would like to provide the convenience of on-site facilities. Access from the Eco-Centre would be by creating a doorway in the adjoining wall linked by ramp to the existing walkways. Water and drainage is already in place in the adjoining building. Internal changes would create a wider doorway for wheelchair access with toilet, sink and support rails installed.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install new disabled toilet facilities with ramp access from our Eco-Centre

Why it's a great idea:

In addition to wheelchair accessibility, the on-site toilet facilities will benefit visitors, volunteers and, as part of our on-going educational programme, parties from local schools. MPHT is rooted in the local community, representing the residents of Moor Pool Garden Suburb in Harborne Ward.

Steps to get it done:

  • Create ramp and doorway access
  • Internal brickwork and making good
  • Installation of toilet facilities
