  • This has still not resolved. I need to use the disabled bay when taking my daughter to school in the morning. Non disabled badge holders constantly block the bay

  • Unfortunately these disabled parking bays are not enforceable as the markings do not conform to current legislation. Therefore at present it is not possible to prevent non-disabled drivers from parking here. We are aware of the issues but it is not simply a matter of changing the markings we have to carry out the necessary consultation in order to meet the legal requirements and it will take some time to do this. I am sorry we cannot offer a more immediate solution.
