Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 6 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found on a raised platform. 6 spaces for wheelchair users can be found on a raised platform in the home section for away supporters.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 67 wheelchair spaces (57 home and up to 10 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 18% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 55 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. The club shop is accessible for all fans and has a low level serving counter. Catering kiosks in the home and away sections do not have low level serving counters and so are not fully accessible. Stewards are trained to provide assistance in carrying refreshments for disabled supporters.
Accessible services & information
The club does not have a hearing loop. Blind and partially sighted fans have the option of hiring one of two DAB digital radios from the club shop. These are available for a £10 deposit (refundable on return) with earphones provided and fans can tune into live commentary from the game from BBC 3 Counties Radio. The concourses do not have rest areas included
