About disabled parking bays

The road marking is a courtesy bay only, provided to let other drivers know that a disabled person needs to park there.

You can’t insist that other people don’t use your parking bay and we don’t enforce parking regulations on these bays.

We need to mark the space in a ‘safe’ part of the road, so that your car doesn’t become a road hazard by parking there.

If you don't have access to a computer, you can visit a Library Plus branch where you can use a self-service pc to log your request/report.  Staff are available to support you if you need it.​​​​​​​
