BrewDog in Aberdeen has begun changes to the layout of its premises to so that it can install an accessible toilet, after it was slapped with a legal notice earlier this year.

The pub chain said it would make the changes after it was scolded by the council and anti-discrimination campaigners for removing accessible facilities from a flagship site.

A local SNP councillor said BrewDog’s decision to remove the facilities in the first places constituted ‘outrageous’ behaviour of disabled customers.

But it has not submitted plans to the local authority to make good and install accessible toilets, according to the Evening Express.

A council spokeswoman told the newspaper: “A building warrant has been approved which alters the layout of the premises and to incorporate a unisex accessible WC as part of the revamp.”

Brewdog’s head of marketing Sarah Warman added: “I can confirm that works will commence by end of September to resolve the issue.”
