Mobility parking areas

Mobility parking areas are placed to give mobility card holders easy access to places such as supermarkets, libraries, community centres, and other public amenities such as museums.

They are marked with blue signs showing the direction in which the mobility parking is valid, and the time period if applicable.

You can apply for a long- or short-term permit by contacting CCS Disability Action here. Long-term permits are valid for five years. Short-term permits are valid for 3-12 months and are for temporary medical conditions. A medical condition doesn't necessarily entitle you to a permit, though. There are criteria for eligibility such as the inability to walk distances without severe pain or breathlessness, or you have to use a mobility aid; the complete inability to walk; or for some conditions where you require physical contact or close supervision to safely get around.
