applying for a disabled persons parking space
The Council as a roads authority can install disabled persons' parking spaces on the public road, subject to a procedure which includes the following stages:
Application from a qualifying “Blue Badge” holder or their representative and have a suitable vehicle registered at your address.
Assessment by our staff of the individual's eligibility and whether a space is feasible.
We will arrange to mark the bay on the road in the location agreed with yourself. This should happen within two weeks of confirming your application has been successful. At this stage, the bay is NOT enforceable.
We will then start the legal procedure to make the bay enforceable. This will involve advertising our intention to make the bay and inviting objections. If any objections are received, this will delay the process.
If there are no objections, we will finalise the legal process and erect a sign at the parking bay. At this point, the bay becomes legally enforceable by the police and you must display your blue badge at all times when parked in the bay. This can take up to 3 months from confirming your application is successful.
If there are no public objections the space is then installed as soon as possible
If there are any objections to the proposed space, the Council Committee decides whether it should be installed
