A disabled person's parking place (DPPP) is a parking space marked on the public highway by a white painted box with a sign that shows it is for the use of blue badge holders only. We also offer a personalised disabled persons parking place (PDPPP) for those that meet the required criteria, where parking in such a bay is vehicle and permit specific.
It an offence for any vehicle to be parked in a bay without displaying a valid blue badge (and a permit if you are in a PDPPP). Even when requested by a householder, a DPPP is still available for any blue badge holder to use.
Disabled persons parking places are not provided for dial-a-ride, taxis, hospital drivers or others for picking up or dropping off passengers and non-disabled visitors or carers.
