If you hold a valid Blue Badge and are having difficulties parking close to your home, you can apply for a disabled parking bay if you:
Anyone with a valid blue badge can park in these bays without a time limit; they are not reserved for the applicant.
This service is currently free, and we will send out a written decision when the application has been assessed.
The assessment of an application can take up to 16 weeks.
It then takes a further 12 weeks for the implementation of the bay. Please note, sometimes it may be longer as work of this nature is dependent on weather conditions and outstanding workload.
If a vehicle is parked in a bay without a valid disabled blue badge clearly displayed, you can report this to our control room on 01753 825428 and they will visit the area to see if a Penalty Charge Notice can be issued.
