Near me, there is a water park with 2 lakes. I fish them regularly, but there are a few pegs for disabled anglers (I am able-bodied) that are totally unfishable. The platforms are in a shocking state because they slope to one side or the other, also overgrown or there are trees overhanging so much that casting a waggler or feeder is out of the question and just getting to the pegs is a job on it's own.
I have talked to the bailiff's about cutting them back, smartening up the platforms/pegs etc. and all I got was.."It's not our fault, blame the council cos they own it".
I have sent emails, written to them, phoned them and nothing has been done. So, I have to ask..can anyone suggest anything else I can do to help them?
I have approached Disabled centres etc. but to no avail.

As far as I'm aware, they may be in breach of the Equality Act 2010, which covers discrimination and disabled access.

The following people may be able to advise :-

UPDATE
Had email back asking for photo's or better still, a video of the state of the platforms and possibly show a disabled angler trying to use them.
They seem to think that it could also be a Health and Safety issue but don't know until video (or photo) evidence is provided.

I have also been in touch with these people...

They are also asking for photo/video evidence. Looks like I can finally get them some help.

Thanks again Stumbler.
