Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 40 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside. 10 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the away section for away supporters. There is no specific location where supporters with ambulant disabilities should sit.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 150 wheelchair spaces (128 home and up to 22 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 33% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 100 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, located in the Main Stand, Haydn Green Stand, Jimmy Sirrel Stand and the MLSB. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home and away sections have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
Accessible services & information
The club does not have a hearing loop. Audio described match commentaries are available via headsets, book with club two weeks in advance for both home and visting supporters. Notts County have purchased radios which pick up our local service if anyone needs commentary at short notice. Facilities for assistance dogs are not available but the club would make arrangements if a supporter requested for an assistance dog to attend with them. The concourses do not have rest areas included.
