Disabled bay guidelines
Mandatory disabled parking bay
Mandatory parking bays are:
- Available for use by any Blue Badge holder and are usually located near to or within commercial areas.
- Identified by the 'disabled' carriageway marking and sign located in the adjacent footway.
A lengthy legal process is involved in providing such a bay, which includes consultation with statutory consultees such as emergency services and property owners nearby.
A vehicle parked within such a bay and not displaying a Blue Badge may be parked in contravention and receive a penalty charge notice.
