Advisory Disabled Parking Bays and Access Protection Markings

Advisory disabled bays and access protection markings are not enforceable. 

Advisory Disabled Parking Bays

Advisory disabled parking bays can help to highlight to other road users that parking close to a property is necessary for a disabled resident.

They are not legally enforceable, and are not reserved for a specific Blue Badge holder.

There is a charge of £193 for both a new bay and for renewal of one that has faded.

Advisory Access Protection Markings

These markings consist of a single white line in the form of an elongated 'H' across a driveway or other vehicle access.

They are not legally enforceable but can help to highlight a concealed entrance.

We will only consider these markings where there is:

  • A legal dropped kerb at the property access
  • And where there are no existing waiting restrictions (yellow lines).
  • And where there is a conflict in parking needs, such as near to schools or shops
  • And there is supporting evidence of previous obstruction.

There is a charge of £193 for both new markings and for renewal of those that have faded.
