The Blue Badge scheme is a national scheme designed to give people who are registered severely sight impaired and who are unable or virtually unable to walk the ability to park close to the facilities and services they need to use, so as to improve their lifestyle, independence and freedom of choice.

Advisory disabled drivers parking bay

This is a parking bay which is marked out on the public highway in close proximity to the home of a person with severe mobility impairments. The purpose of the bay is to deter others from parking in the location as it makes them aware that a person with mobility problems lives close by and relies on the bay to stay independent.

To apply for an Advisory disabled drivers parking bay you will need to contact Highways on 08000 514514 or email
