Disabled persons' parking bays

The council can install parking bays solely for the use of disabled motorists. We assist people with disabilities by providing bays close to their home wherever possible.

Disabled parking bay signA disabled persons' parking bay is a parking space marked on the public highway by a white painted box with a sign indicating it's for Blue Badge holders only and operational at all times.

Even when a bay is provided in response to a request from a householder, the bay is available for any Blue Badge holder to use.

Disabled person parking bay application form

Who can apply for a parking bay?

Applications are considered based on the following criteria:  

  • The applicant must be a resident of The London Borough of Hillingdon and a registered Blue Badge holder, with severe mobility difficulties.
  • The applicant must be in receipt of the higher rate mobility component of a disabled person's living allowance (or attendance allowance, if over the age of 65).
  • The property should not have off-street parking. Where off-street parking facilities are available, a bay may only be provided if the applicant can demonstrate the facilities are unsuitable for use due to the nature of their disability. 
  • A car must be registered at the address in the application form.
  • Disabled persons' parking places will only be approved if road safety will not be adversely affected.

Applications will not normally be considered for:

  • dial-a-ride, taxis, hospital drivers or others for the purposes of picking up or dropping off passengers
  • visitors or carers

We'll remove any parking bays no longer necessary due to a change in circumstances or if they're reported to be unused.
