Spectator Viewing areas

 

25 spaces for wheelchair users allocated in the Main Stand allocated to home and away supporters. Personal assistants sit about 3 metres away.

 

NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 90 wheelchair spaces (77 home and up to 13 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 65 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.

Accessible amenities

 

There is  1 aaccessible toilet at corner of Main Stand and Grosvenor Road Terrace whilst catering is limited and better left to personal assistants to collect.
