Spectator Viewing areas
Home supporters have 23 spaces for wheelchair users available to them, and these can be found at pitchside and in sheltered areas of the stadium (i.e Concourse area). 10 spaces for wheelchair users can be found at pitchside in the home section for away supporters.
Viewing facilities for ambulant or blind and partially sighted supporters: Seating on front rows near to pitch. Choice of seating around the Stadium.
Easy access & amenity seating: All seats on the front rows of the lower tier of each stand have easy access. Seating on the front rows of the HomeServe Stand and Tile Choice Stand provide extra legroom space.
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.
There are 8 accessible toilets for home and away fans which are located pitchside in the concourses and within hospitality areas. 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.
Accessible services & information
The club does not have a hearing loop but ticket office microphones are suitable for use with hearing aids and to assist those who are hard of hearing. Match commentaries are not available. Facilities for assistance dogs are not available. The concourses and stadium approach do have rest areas available.
