As per recent announcements regarding the upcoming test events, we’re contacting all registered Disabled Access Scheme members to update them on a few details.

We’ll be updating the articles on AskSpurs regularly with new information as it comes to hand, additionally we’ll be sending additional information to members on the Access Scheme who’ve successfully received a ticket with more details such as how to get there, what to expect, entry points and facilities, so please also keep an eye on your inbox.
For full information about accessible parking and transport options please see: Accessible Parking And Transport Information.

If you have been successful getting a ticket for an upcoming event and are already registered with our Disability Access Scheme, we will contact you via email with information about how you can pre-book parking spaces (allocated on a first-come-first-served basis) via our online booking system, subject to availability.

DISABILITY ACCESS SCHEME MEMBERS CARD & LIFT PASSES
Your Disability Access Scheme Card and Lift Pass will entitle you to use the dedicated accessible check-in entrances at the new stadium, that are at street level. Please use the entrance number that is on your stadium access card. These have been designed to assist your entry into the stadium as they each lead directly to two 33-person lifts at each entrance, that you will have priority use of to ease your entry into the stadium.

BAG POLICY & MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS
We can provide exemption certificates for the stadium bag policy on medical grounds, but in order to do so we require some supporting evidence.
If you would like to apply for a certificate, please provide us with a letter from your GP or specialist nurse which outlines your requirements. We will then get back to you at the earliest opportunity. Email: [email protected].
Please be aware that all supporters with an exemption certificate will still need to have their bags searched and tagged at a dedicated accessible entrance before entering the stadium. This will be the only way to access the stadium on a matchday if you require to bring a bag with you on medical grounds.

the thing is, their residents should be guaranteed parking and not come home and find they have to walk ½ a mile because their spaces have been taken. I know in some places in London, not sure if in Tottenham they have to pay for a permit to even park in their roadsCheers for posting this. I think it’s a bit of a disgrace the way the local council are treating disabled fans with a blue badge.

Fully understand that and agree with it, but surely they could lift the parking restrictions for blue badge holders without it impacting on local residents too much.the thing is, their residents should be guaranteed parking and not come home and find they have to walk ½ a mile because their spaces have been taken.

I know when we was at the old stadium the school in Worcester Ave and the 1 opposite the old club shop used to allow blue badges, but with a lot of spaces under the stadium they might no longer be available. the thing is where ever you park if your mobility isn't that great you need to be close within those 2 hours (used to be 3hrs) and will always take a good amount of time to departCheers for posting this.
