Parking for disabled people
Parking in residential streets
We can provide parking bays for disabled people in residential streets if they meet certain eligibility criteria.
These bays are only for vehicles displaying a valid Blue Badge. A bay cannot be reserved for an individual.
If you are considering applying for disabled parking bay, you should:
- not already have accessible on plot parking available
- frequently use a vehicle registered at the address
- have a valid Blue Badge
You should also qualify for the higher rate mobility component of the disability living allowance. If you are over 65 and not in receipt of the higher rate then an alternative assessment will be made.
In addition, a needs assessment will be carried out based on the information you provide and a medical questionnaire.
On street disabled parking bays cannot be provided where they might result in a road safety problem.
Enquire or apply for a disabled parking bay
Please use the disabled parking bay enquiry form to enquire about an existing disabled parking bay application or to apply for a new one.
Disabled bays no longer in use
If you believe that a nearby disabled parking bay is no longer being used by local residents, then please contact the Transport Development Team.
All of the on-street disabled parking bays within Bracknell borough are contained within a legal order, so a short consultation exercise will be undertaken within the immediate vicinity of the bay to ensure that the bay is not still required by any local resident. If it is not required, the markings and sign will be removed and the bay will revert to general use.
Public parking spaces for disabled people
There are spaces for Blue Badge holders in many of the borough's car parks. There are no free concessions for Blue Badge holders in any of our charging car parks.
Blue Badge holders are reminded to park in accordance with the guidance issued with the badge. Please make sure that your badge and clock are displayed correctly when required.
