Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 56 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found on a raised platform. 6 Spaces for wheelchair users can be found on a raised platform in the away section for away supporters. Disabled supporters can sit anywhere but the club recommend block Y of the Arthur Wait Stand or block A of the lower Holmesdale Road Stand.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 168 wheelchair spaces (143 home and up to 25 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 37% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 106 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, one toilet is situated in the Arthur Wait stand and the other in the Holmesdale Road Stand. The club shop is accessible for all fans and does 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.
