Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 86 spaces for wheelchair users available to them. 13 spaces for wheelchair users can be found in the away section for away supporters. Home supporters' spaces are in the Park End Stand (49), The Paddock (29) and Lower Gwladys Street Stand (7). Away supporters are in the Lower Visitors area in the Bullens Road Stand. All are pitchside with little cover. Personal Assistants sit either adjacent or behind. Places for ambulant disabled supporters are subject to availability in Park End Stand (home supporters only).
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 210 wheelchair spaces (179 home and up to 32 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 47% 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.
6 accessible toilets with 4 for home supporters and 2 for both away and home supporters are situated close to seating areas. Alarm cords and stewards are available. Dedicated catering facilities for disabled supporters close by in the Park End.
