Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 35 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside. 7 spaces for wheelchair users can be found on a raised area in the home section for away supporters.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 153 wheelchair spaces (130 home and up to 23 away). 75% of these should be elevated positions and the remaining 25% pitchside.
LPF's view is that many disabled supporters should be able to access general seating areas and only those with specific needs eg those who require extra legroom, or access via aisle seats or who need step free access etc should be allocated seats in the dedicated areas.
Based on the above, the club therefore only meets 27% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 111 wheelchair spaces. They should be working on a plan to rectify this deficit within a reasonable timeframe under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.
Both home and away fans can use accessible toilets inside the stadium. The club shop is accessible for all fans and does not have a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home and away sections do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible. Disabled help stewards can provide assistance with help in and out of the ground and kiosk staff with assist with the purchase of refreshments.
