Disabled parking bays

There are 2 types of disabled parking bays:

  • Advisory markings on the road outside a person's home
  • Statutory disabled parking bays, for example, in car parks and on street in shopping areas such as the city centre. 

Advisory bay markings

The disabled parking bay markings put on the road outside a person's home provide a space where a Blue Badge holder can park their vehicle. When parked in a disabled bay, a Blue Badge should be on display at all times.  There are certain conditions that have to be met before an advisory bay can be provided.

This bay can be used by any vehicle that displays a blue badge and would not be for the exclusive use of the owners of the property adjacent to the marked space.

Statutory bay markings

There are 47 disabled bays on street within Coventry City centre. Anyone using these bays should park in accordance with the Blue Badge scheme rights and responsibilities.

Applications for an advisory bay

We are currently accepting applications. However, we will not be installing any new bays until after April 2017 (the new financial year).

All applications will be assessed. If they meet our criteria, they will be added to a waiting list for works to be carried out.

If further information is required from the applicant, we will write to them directly.  If the application is successful, works will be carried out on a first come, first served basis.
