For residents wishing to request a disabled parking bay outside of their property, there are two different types of application depending on whether or not the property lies within an area with existing formal parking regulations in place, such as a residents parking permit scheme, or a location with no formal restrictions in place.

Bays are advisory and are not legally enforceable. Any disabled badge holder may use the bay and it is not limited to the resident who made the application.

Standard requirements for allowing a disabled space are:

  • Minimum road width of 6.5m is desirable to ensure the safe passage of vehicles using the carriageway.
  • The carriageway forms part of the public highway and is maintained by Warwickshire County Council.
  • National guidance requires a bay to be 6.6m in length.  The highway authority will consult with neighbouring properties during the application process.

For residents where there are currently no parking restrictions in place

Standard procedures

Once your application has been received it will be processed as follows:

  • confirmation of your blue badge status
  • a visit by an engineer to assess the situation
  • consultation with your immediate neighbours
  • consultation with your Town/Parish Council

Disabled parking bay
