Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 42 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found pitchside. 11 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the away section for away supporters. Disabled fans with ambulant disabilities can request seats on the front row or ends of rows in both the home and away sections with extra leg room.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 69 wheelchair spaces (59 home and up to 10 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 77% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 16 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 the 8 accessible toilets inside the stadium and there is at least one located in each stand. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counters. Catering kiosks in both the home and away sections do have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
