Monitoring short stay car parks

We carry out parking surveys to gather information about:

The following may happen:

Where can I park?

The Blue Badge scheme entitles disabled drivers, and those who drive on their behalf, to parking concessions. These include parking in specially marked bays and on single and double yellow lines without time limit, provided you don't cause an obstruction or danger to other road users.

Blue Badge holders with a suitable vehicle registered at a home address, may be eligible for a disabled resident's parking bay.
