Disabled Parking and Blue Badges

Disabled Parking

On street

If you display your Blue Badge correctly, parking is free in the following (with no time limits):

  • disabled parking bays
  • pay and display bays (if there are no local Traffic Orders in force specifying a time limit)
  • in all limited waiting bays

If you display your Blue Badge correctly, with the clock set to show the time of arrival, you can park on single or double yellow lines if:

  • you don't park for longer than 3 hours
  • there are no loading restrictions
  • you don't cause an obstruction
  • you don't park within 10 metres of a junction

A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to any driver disobeying these restrictions.
