Parking bays for people with disabilities
Location of disabled parking bays
The provision of disabled bays is undertaken on the County Council’s behalf by local district or borough councils. Their websites may list the location of disabled bays in their area, or you may need to contact them to make an enquiry.
To request a disabled parking bay near your home
If you have a disability that makes it difficult for you to get to and from your car, you may qualify for a disabled parking bay outside or close to your home.
You are only likely to qualify if you hold a 'Blue Badge' disabled parking permit.
Disabled bays marked on the highway are not for the sole use of the applicant and can be used by any driver displaying a valid Blue Badge in their vehicle.
Generally disabled parking bays in residential areas are "advisory only" markings, so they are not legally enforceable. An enforceable disabled parking bay will have a legal Traffic Regulation Order applied to it and will have an accompanying sign stating ‘Disabled Badge Holders Only’.
