Who can get a disabled parking bay

Blue badge holders can apply for an on-street parking bay outside or near their homes if they:

  • have no off-street parking, such as a garage or driveway
  • are the driver or the driver lives with them.

Anyone with a blue badge may park in a disabled parking bay, even if they didn't request that specific bay.

Application process


  • Controlled parking zone: 1 year or longer
  • Outside of a controlled parking zone: up to 6 months.


  1. We will write to you to acknowledge your application.
  2. We will visit the site to ensure the bay meet's the our traffic management criteria. If it does, we will put white guidance marks down (unless you live in a controlled parking area).
  3. Write to you to tell you whether we've approved the bay.
  4. Tell our contractors to put in advisory bay markings (this can take four to six weeks depending on the weather).
