Lincomb Lock- ACCESSIBILITY & ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENTS

Accessibility Statement

General-The landscape of the Park varies from relatively flat areas to steep banks. Some pitches have car parking spaces alongside the holiday homes while others use one of the several communal car parking areas where there are some disabled spaces. There are one or more steps to access the holiday homes with many having decking to the side and front, depending on location, currently none are specifically set up for wheelchair access. Dogs are allowed on the Park but should be kept on a lead.

Roads & Paths- Access around the Park is via tarmac roads which have a number of speed bumps, highlighted by yellow road marking paint, and a speed limit of 8 m.p.h.. Access from the road to the holiday homes varies according to location and may be via grass, intermittent concrete slabs or continuous concrete slabs.

Telephones- There is no public telephone on the Park, however a phone line may be connected to your holiday home. The Park Managers live on the Park and are available to contact the emergency services should the need arise. Mobile phone reception is good.

Amenities-There are steps to the Park Reception which is also where mail is held for holiday home owners. The Washrooms are accessed by a ramp, none of the cubicles are specifically designed for disabled use. The children's play area is of wooden construction and is surrounded by wood chip safety flooring. There is no shop on the Park but a small general store is only about half a mile. There is no public bus service near the Park. There is a central collection point for refuse including recycling facilities.

Holiday Homes- We sell new and preowned holiday homes, but do not rent, the design of holiday homes varies enormously, they are rarely designed for specific disabilities. Some do have wider doorways, hallways and spaces around the beds which would make wheelchair use a possibility although it is likely that further adaptation would be necessary, however some manufacturers offer new holiday homes made specifically for wheelchair use. All holiday homes are connected to electricity, gas (propane), water and drainage.

Touring- The touring pitch area is relatively flat with electricity hook ups and water supply, waste disposal is to the rear of the Washrooms.
