Disabled residents' parking bay

If you are a Blue Badge holder, it may be possible for you to obtain a Disabled Persons' Parking Place (disabled bay) in the vicinity of your home.

You must:

  • be the holder of a current Blue Badge
  • have a car registered at your address
  • not have access to a driveway or an off-road parking area

A disabled bay may be used by any vehicle displaying a current Blue Badge.

There is no charge for this service.

Who makes the decision?

The decision to provide a bay and the location of that bay lies with the authority responsible for parking in your area.

This will be either:

  • North Ayrshire Councils' Commercial Services (Roads),
  • North Ayrshire Councils' Housing Services, or
  • the relevant Housing Association. 

The bay must not cause a traffic obstruction.


You will need a copy of:

  • the vehicle registration document V5C (the front page showing the registered address)
  • your valid blue badge, front and back

If your car was purchased under the Motability Scheme, you can call Motability on 0300 4564566 to request a copy.
