PUBLIC buildings will have to provide separate gents and ladies loos under new planning rules — flushing away campaigners’ hopes for gender-neutral ones.
The move, to help ensure privacy, has been branded a “kick in the teeth to the woke mob”.
It follows a review of the ratio of male to female toilets and claims that women were finding it harder to locate single-sex loos.
A source said: “Too often, separate sex toilets are being removed by stealth.
“We’ve listened to concerns raised by women and the elderly about their security, dignity and safety.”
It is understood partitions would be required in existing unisex facilities.
