Request a disabled parking bay

Guidance for blue badge holders.

Disabled parking bay

To qualify for a residential disabled parking bay near your home, you must be a blue badge holder and:

  • Demonstrate a genuine need for the bay requested.
  • Not have access to private parking within or near the premises.
  • Receive the higher rate mobility component of the disability living allowance.
  • Drive your own car or nominate a carer who drives you and resides at your address. 
  • Provide copies of your driving licence and vehicle registration documents displaying your name and address. 

The application form also needs to be signed by a doctor or occupational therapist.  Applications for new bays take a minimum of three months. We will deal with applications as quickly as possible. 

However, creating new parking places involves consultation with the local community, which can take time.
