6 Oakley Wharf – Access Statement
6 Oakley Wharf is a self contained apartment situated on the harbour front at Porthmadog. The apartment is on the ground floor with it’s own designated parking space situated at the front of the premises. The space is quite tight for people who may have difficulty in getting into and out of a vehicle but there is ample space to pull up and allow somebody to alight and fully open the vehicle doors.
The car park and the front entrance to the apartment are tarmac/paving stones and flat. Access through the front door is over a small step and then onto a flat wood floor into the living areas. Wheelchair access is possible but is likely to be tight because you enter into a hallway that necessitates a 90 degree turn into the living accommodation and there is no ramp to assist access over the step.
The apartment has no specific facilities for people with disabilities but it is spacious and all on one level. However, the rear garden could be difficult for people with disabilities to access through the patio doors at the rear as there is a step to get outside onto our small patio but there is a further step, with a drop of approximately 14 inches onto the rear lawn.
To get into the town of Porthmadog requires your own transport as public transport does not come as far as Lon Cei where the apartment is situated however, the area around the apartment and the town itself is reasonably flat and has, in the main, wide pavements.
