Accessing the site

There are three disabled parking spaces in the car park at the front of the venue.
They are the furthest spaces from our front doors, approx 50 metres.

This car park is not owned by The Civic, Stourport. It is owned by Worcestershire County Council and was designed to improve access to the Library and Office building.

We cannot reserve spaces.

You can park anywhere else, but there are only three spaces marked as disabled.

On the public car parks at the rear of The Civic, there are four more disabled marked spaces. On the small public car park opposite there are two marked spaces, but spaces on this car park are generally wider.

However, using either of these car parks will result in having to travel uphill to get to the venue, and crossing the car park at the front of the venue.

There is a drop kerb in the car park at the front of the venue to acess teh ramp to the front door.

There is no access from the road in front of the venue, as there are steps with no ramp.


Entering the Venue

The Civic has ramped entrances at three of its doors, two of which are at the main doors to the venue, and is step free throughout the public areas.

Doors throughout the public areas are double doors.

None of these doors are powered at this time.

There are wheelchair accessible toilets available.
