Riverbend- Accessibility & Environmental Policy Statements

Accessibility Statement

General- The landscape of the Park varies from relatively flat areas to slopes. Some pitches have car parking spaces close to the holiday homes while others use one of the several communal car parking areas. There are one or more steps to access the holiday homes with many having  decking to the side and front, depending on location. Dogs are allowed on the Park but should be kept on a lead. The Park adjoins the river Banwy with open access to the river, which is fairly shallow for most of the time.

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 a public telephone on the Park, near the Washrooms. 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 is a single step to the Park Reception which is also where mail is held for holiday home owners. The Washrooms are accessible without using steps but 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 about two miles. There is limited public bus service near the Park. There is a central collection point for refuse.

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, the waste disposal being to the rear of the Washrooms.
