Disabled Badge Holders

Residents who hold a Disabled Badge do not require a resident’s parking permit if the badge is clearly displayed in the vehicle. However, if the disabled badge is not clearly displayed in the vehicle a PCN could be issued. The decision whether to purchase a resident’s permit in addition to holding a disabled badge is left to the resident to decide.

Failure to comply with these conditions may result in the issue of a PCN.

Permit Restricted Properties

Some properties are not eligible for visitor parking permits. This is due to conditions that were applied to it when it was built. This applies to developments that are 'car free' or have good access to public transport. Despite this, some exceptions for Blue Badge holders may still apply.
