Apply for a disabled parking space outside your house

Having a disabled parking bay outside your home doesn’t guarantee that space for you or the disabled person in your household.

You can apply for a disabled parking space (disabled bay road marking) outside your house provided you meet the following conditions:

  • You or someone in your household is disabled and has a valid blue badge
  • The person in your house who is disabled has regular use of a vehicle (as either driver or passenger), which is kept at the address on the application
  • There’s increasing difficulty in finding a parking space close to the property, eg a space isn’t available more often than one is available
  • There is no off-street parking available
  • The parking outside the property isn’t currently prohibited 
  • There’s enough space for a parking bay
  • The parking bay doesn’t cause a hazard to other road users
  • If the parking bay will overlap the front of a neighbouring property, the resident of that property will be consulted

A disabled bay road marking may be ‘advisory’ or ‘mandatory’.

  • An advisory disabled bay road marking is not enforceable

No action can be taken by the police or the council if a non-disabled person or indeed another disabled person parks in the disabled bay

  • A mandatory disabled bay road marking is enforceable by law

We can take action against anyone parking in the disabled bay without displaying a blue badge

 

The provision of a disabled bay road marking, and the type of bay, will depend on existing parking restrictions outside the property.
