Disabled person's parking bay
A disabled person's parking bay is an area marked on the road to show that the space has been reserved for a disabled person.
It is a boxed area with a yellow or white border and an international wheelchair symbol or the word 'Disabled'.
Parking bays cannot be provided on privately owned roads or grounds.
These marked areas are for who are blue badge holders who have a car and need to park close to their home. Parking bays are normally only provided to help disabled drivers to access their vehicle from their home, however, in very exceptional circumstances they can be provided for a passenger. Applicants should not already have access to off street parking.
To request a disabled person's parking bay application form you should fill out our social work enquiry form or contact your local social work office for more information and to check what necessary supporting paperwork must be submitted.
