Use this form if you become aware that a disabled parking bay is no longer required for the Council to look into removing the bay.

There are two types of on-street disabled parking bay, advisory and regulated.

Advisory disabled bay: where a disabled bay marking has been provided and there is no accompanying post and plate. As this is an advisory marking it is not possible for the Councilís civil enforcement officerís to enforce who may or may not use this bay.

Regulated disabled bay: where the disabled bay marking and accompanying post and plate has been provided and blue badge holders must display their badge. The provision of a post and plate indicates that this bay is covered by a traffic regulation order and it is possible for the Councilís civil enforcement officerís undertaking parking enforcement to enforce who may or may not use this bay. Persons parking in contravention of this order may receive a penalty charge notice.

We aim to investigate if the bay is no longer required and make provision to have the bay removed if appropriate within 15 working days

What happens next?

The Council will investigate if the bay is no longer required and make provision to have the bay removed.

The removal process is dependent upon the type of bay:

  • Advisory Bay: the contractor will be instructed to remove the road marking. The contractor has 40 working days to complete this work.
  • Regulated Bay: is subject to removal by revocation of the legal order. This process involves advertising in the local press, on site and with Ward Councillors. Once the legal order has been sealed to remove the bay the contractor is then instructed to remove the road marking, post and plate. The contractor has 40 working days to complete this work.
