Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 51 spaces for wheelchair users available to them. An additional 5 spaces for wheelchair users can be found directly in front of the visitors section, with 7 for cup fixtures. Due to ongoing demolition and building work in preparation for the new stadium all available spaces are located at pitchside for season 2016/2017. The pitchside positions offer partial cover with personal assistants sat behind. Blankets and ponchos can be made available during inclement weather (subject to availability). Places for ambulant disabled supporters - 32 for home supporters, 4 for away supporters are situated at pitchside within the wheelchair user areas. Dedicated ambulant supporters areas provide step free access and are situated at pitchside and personal assistant is sat beside them.
NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 198 wheelchair spaces (168 home and up to 30 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 28% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 142 wheelchair spaces. The new stadium should provide better facilities but until this is built, the club should be working on a plan to rectify the current deficit under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.
There are 4 accessible toilets in the North Stand lower accessible area and 2 in the South Stand lower accessible area. There are also accessible toilets located in the North Stand general admission concourse, North Stand executive area and West Stand executive areas. All accessible toilets are operated via a RADAR key.
Our North, South and West accessible areas have refreshment kiosks with low-level counters. In addition to the permanent stores, there are several temporary units located around the ground on a match day, which are fully accessible to wheelchair users.
