Helping you to park outside your home
A disabled parking space is a parking space allocated to you outside your home due to a disability. To qualify for a disabled parking space you must meet certain criteria.
Drivers of the vehicle
If you are the driver of the vehicle:
- you must be a current blue badge holder
- the disability must be related to permanent mobility problems that make walking impossible or where the effort required to walk would constitute a danger to life or a serious deterioration to health
- your address must have no off-street parking space or space that could be reasonably made available for parking (such as a front garden of sufficient depth for conversion and provision of a vehicle crossover)
- your ability to park on-street must be a major problem most of the day
Passengers of the vehicle
If you are the passenger of the vehicle in addition to the above, you must:
- require physical assistance from the driver of the vehicle and the driver is generally the only person available to assist you. The driver must also live at the same address as you.
- be sufficiently disabled to require constant supervision by the driver of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle should be the only person available to provide this supervision and must also live at the same address as the applicant.
- be between the ages of 2 and 17 years and meet either or both of the criteria stated immediately above.
