Disabled persons parking bay

Disabled persons parking bays are markings to try and stop vehicles parking without displaying a blue badge.

Application criteria

To apply for a disabled persons parking bay you need to meet the following criteria:

  • No off-street parking is available on the property, and it would not be possible for this to exist.
  • You should be unlikely to be able to park in a suitable location, close to your property, for most of the day.
  • You should usually be the driver of the vehicle. Sometimes this may be widened to include others if you have a permanent disability that places you at risk if left unattended for any length of time. In this case, the driver of the vehicle must also live at the address where the parking bay is to be provided.
  • Walking any distance, from your car to your property is unacceptable. This will need to be assessed.
  • You must provide a copy of a notice of entitlement/letter of confirmation of the required level of allowance. This is to ensure the marking is necessary and that you have a severe mobility problem.
  • There should be no existing waiting restrictions near your home.
  • A marking in the ‘turning head’ of a cul-de-sac is not appropriate. 

Read the disabled parking bay full policy.

How much does it cost?

There is currently no charge for a disabled parking bay to be installed.
