Disabled person's 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.

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.

Key information
