Parking Bays (Disabled)

Main Details

Provision of a Disability Parking Bay near your home, the applicant must be in receipt of the higher rate of the mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance, War Disablement Pensioners Mobility Supplement or the Invalid Vehicle Scheme. Plus it has to be the driver of the vehicle applying, not the passenger.

Any Blue Badge holder may apply for a blue badge holders parking place. The Council will consider the application, you can do this by writing in and requesting an application form.

In each case, the parking place will be sited as near as possible to the relevant building but we have to take the following into consideration:

  • traffic flow
  • the interests of the owners and occupiers of adjoining properties
  • access to premises
  • and road safety

Any Blue Badge holder is able to park in a disabled parking bay. As a Blue Badge holder, to obtain a new disabled parking bay (for use by any Blue Badge holder) a successful application must be made which demonstrates certain qualification criteria. To qualify for a disabled parking bay, you must first hold a valid Blue Badge and:

  • demonstrate a genuine need for the bay requested
  • and not have access to private parking within or near the premises

You can obtain an application form using the details above. The Council will make every effort to deal with applications as quickly as possible. However, putting in parking places involves consultation with local people and statutory bodies as well as the production and publication of Traffic Management Orders. An application will take a minimum of 3 months to process.
