Thread Name: Sidmouth campsite to move?
Subject: RE: Sidmouth campsite to move?
I hope that the consultations mentioned above will include full consideration of the needs people with mobility problems.
Idealy I would like to see a festival officer appointed to oversee such aspects and who REALLY understands what people with such challenges require.
In recent years I have felt that although the festival team meant to do the right thing(s)there were some shortcomings that could have been avoided if matters had been discussed with a person who would need to use the facilities and access.
I know that there will always be technical compromises to be made but at least let them be discussed with a "user reprensentative" before installing whatever it might be.
Do you think that with a new site it may be possible to get things nearer to an optimum?
