Disabled bays

Please note that disabled badge holders can park in any available space in our car parks, not just disabled bays. 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.

Number of disabled bays

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.
