Parking for disabled people
Where can I park?
Disabled badge holders may park in any shared-use bay for pay and display or resident's parking place or Blue Badge holder's disabled bay for free and without a time limit. You can also park for up to three hours on yellow lines as long as you’re not causing an obstruction or breaking a loading restriction.
Disabled badge holders CANNOT park in the zone G permit holder only bays in Macfarlane Road and Hopgood Street, UNLESS you also display a zone G SMART Visitor Permit (SVP). When parking in these streets, the visitor permit does not need to be activated (i.e. payment does not need to be made for parking).
Some disabled parking bays are reserved for specific Blue Badge holders, and are not available for other Blue Badge holders. These bays are clearly signed and marked.

The blue European parking badge allows people with severe walking difficulties to park close to places they wish to visit. The badge is personal to you and can be used in any vehicle in which you travel either as a driver or a passenger.
