As part of a series of measures designed to improve accessibility, we’re replacing some of the platforms on Black Lake.
The platforms, which are made from recycled plastic, have been constructed and we hope to install the first of them within the next 10 days.
Platform under construction.
Two of the new platforms are 2m2 and will accommodate wheelchairs. We hope to replace further platforms next year.
We are also creating a new car park opposite the footbridge on Black Lake, specifically for disabled anglers. Access from the car park to the platforms will be via a dedicated main path running from the car park along the length of the bank with spurs leading to the platforms.
In addition to this we are looking into improving access to the Anglers Kabin, replacing the existing door with a wider doorway and a ramp to enable wheelchair access.
