Spectator Viewing areas
The stadium has six raised wheelchair platforms (with at least one in each of the four stands) each consisting of at least eight combined wheelchair and personal assistant bays). In addition there are three high level platforms all of which are easily accessible by elevator which take the total number of wheelchair and helper bays up to 127 for the stadium. Supporters with ambulant disabilities can request ambulant seating in the home end (40 seats in total, 30 for home supporters, 10 for away supporters).
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 110 wheelchair spaces and they exceed that figure. 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 exceeds the current minimum guidance. They should continue to monitor this and carry out regular reviews under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.
Both home and away fans can use accessible toilets inside the stadium. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in both the home and away sections have low level serving counters and so are fully accessible.
