You can apply for a designated disabled parking bay. Disabled parking bays are non-exclusive and can be used by any vehicle displaying a Blue Badge.
The application process takes approximately 3 months due to the amount of enquiries we get.
The cost of an application is £42, which you'll pay if we can install a disabled parking bay for you.
How to apply for a disabled parking bay
To be eligible for a disabled parking bay, you must be able to prove the following:
- you hold a current Blue Badge registered to the address you’re making the application for
- your vehicle is registered to the address you’re making the application for (in exceptional circumstances, a bay may be granted where the sole driver is also the primary carer, living at the same address)
- you must be a permanent resident and live at your address full time to minimise the time a bay is left empty
- you do not have an adequate private parking facility, such as a garage or driveway.
Where disabled bays cannot be provided
Bays cannot be provided in the following locations:
- on private land, for example land maintained privately by a housing association or a particular council department that isn’t a public road
- on a bend, brow of a hill, close to a junction, or within a turning area in use
- where parking is not allowed in front of your address (such as marked bus stops, yellow lines or zig zags)
- on a verge, speed hump or other uneven surface
- where the road is too narrow
- outside other residents’ houses in most circumstances
- where the applicant would be required to cross a busy road to access the bay.
You can request the removal of a parking bay online.
You will need to tell us the location of the parking bay.
