The club are sending out letters to existing Disabled Stadium Car Park Pass Holders, detailing the cost and arrangements for the 2012/13 season which were discussed and agreed with the SDSA recently. You should receive your letter (if you had a pass for the 2011/12 season) within the next few days.
Last season some disabled supporters paid a lot less than other disabled supporters in the same car park, and so the cost for a disabled car park pass has been agreed at £100 which is a 50% discount on the price paid by non-disabled supporters of £200. The new price will mean that some supporters will pay more than last season, but for others it will mean a fairer price.
Changes for the 2012/13 season,
- Each pass will allocated a numbered space within the appropriate car park, as close as possible to where you enter the stadium
- An extra 6-8 disabled bays alongside the bike sheds are being added for supporters that sit in the Kingsland stand
- To be able to get a disabled parking pass, you MUST have a Blue Badge and be a current disabled season ticket holder. Although this has always been the policy, in previous seasons some disabled parking passes have been mistakenly allocated to supporters that longer meet the criteria
The letter also clarifies the car parking procedures.
- You will not be allowed into a stadium car park if there is less than 45 minutes until kick off, and no alternative parking will be offered if you miss this deadline
- You cannot drive behind the Kingsland stand before, during, or after a game unless it is to get to your parking space (if you are allocated one of the new “bike shed” spaces)
- Exit from the car park after a game will not be allowed until the Safety Officer decides it is safe (up to 30 minutes)
