Spectator Viewing areas

 

Home supporters have 131 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and on raised platforms (64).  8 to 16 spaces for wheelchair users can be found on a raised platform in the away section for away supporters. There are designated seats for supporters with ambulant disabilities are available in the home (200 seats) and away end (50 to 100 seats).

 

NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 165 wheelchair spaces (140 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 89% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 18 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.

Accessible amenities

 

Both home and away fans can use accessible toilets inside the stadium on both the concourse and pitch level. 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.

Accessible services & information

 

The club does not have a hearing loop. Match commentaries are available via headsets; available from stewards. Facilities for assistance dogs are available. The concourses do not have rest areas included.
