Disabled bays

Please note that disabled badge holders can park in any available space in our car parks, not just disabled bays – excluding Lord Street Temporary Car Park, this car park is for Lord Street Permit holders only. Disabled badge holders are also exempt from permit holders only restrictions on-street. Refer to your disabled badge booklet for more information on on-street parking.

In the town centre there are a number of bays both on street and in our car parks that are for disabled badge holders only.

If you're a disabled badge holder you're still liable for a parking ticket if you:

  • Don't display your disabled badge correctly
  • Park outside the marked bays
  • Park in a loading bay or bays with loading restrictions and/or waiting restrictions
  • Park in a 'permit holders only' car park

Any vehicle can park within the disabled bays without time restriction as long as a valid disabled badge is displayed at the time.
