A man who uses a wheelchair complained that the choices available to him for seating at the Entertainment Centre were very restricted, and that he was unable to sit next to his wife.
The conciliation of this matter, in consultation with representative groups, has resulted in the Centre issuing a media release announcing its new arrangements. There now will always be a seat for an associate next to each designated wheelchair position, and provision for patrons using wheelchairs to sit immediately behind seats for other family or friends.
The then HREOC now AHRC notes that, as for all people, such arrangements will depend on booking availability and that booking information is available from BASS. HREOC has urged other entertainment facilities to revise their arrangements similarly.
