A disabled parking marking is a rectangular shaped box that contains a symbol of a person in a wheel chair in the centre.
Anyone can park in a space with a disabled marking. However, if the procedure has been followed correctly then only vehicles with a current disabled badge can park in the space.
Markings in town centres are controlled by a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and are legally enforceable.
Markings outside people's homes are only advisory.

After you've applied
- An officer examines the site and assesses road safety implications. The council writes to the neighbours who will be affected by the marking and asks them if they object to a marking and also if they are prepared to keep that area of the road. If they are not prepared to do this then there is nothing we can do.
- We will reply to you directly to confirm if you can have a disabled marking. This can take between 8 to 12 weeks.
