Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 17 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside. 16 spaces for wheelchair users can be found in at pitchside in the away section for away supporters.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 100 wheelchair spaces (85 home and up to 15 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 67 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 and main building. The club shop is accessible for all fans and does have a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home and away sections have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
