Disabled persons parking place
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.
Am I eligible?
Each application is assessed on its merits taking into account whether the person applying:
- has a valid blue badge;
- does not have access to a driveway, a garage, or alternative on street/ off street parking;
- experiences mobility differences which can be confirmed by GP;
- or experiences problems parking near property.
- a valid blue badge needs to be displayed in the parked vehicle, if not, a penalty charge notice may be issued
- DPPP’s are not vehicle specific and any blue badge holder can use them. Only personalised disabled parking spaces are vehicle specific for single users
- applications take roughly four weeks to process, providing we have received all of the information we need. We will provide a temporary (advisory) DPPP whilst we carry out the legal process for making the bay permanent.
- if the bay markings have faded or the bay is no longer required, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
