Information on car parking charges for blue badge holders.
When you park in one of our car parks you need to buy a ticket from the ticket machine and display it with a valid blue badge.
As we realise that some blue badge holders may need some extra time, the time bought on your pay and display ticket will be doubled on certain tariffs marked with an* on the front panel of the ticket machines. The extra time will not be shown on your ticket, but our parking team allow for this when patrolling our car parks.
Please note that exemptions to this scheme apply to parking areas that operate a maximum period of stay, such as 30 minute or one-hour bays; all day tickets and weekly tickets.
Where you can park
If you have a blue badge you can park in any marked disabled bays in our car parks or in the disabled bays at the following locations:
- Victoria Road
- High Street
- Cross Street
- Short Street
- Station Road
- Salisbury Road
- Camp Road
- Alexandra Road
Enforcement of disabled parking bays
We want to make sure that our disabled parking facilities are available for the people who need them. If necessary, our parking enforcement team will confiscate any blue badge that they think is being misused.
We patrol disabled parking bays in our car parks and on-street parking areas to make sure that they are being used correctly and if needed, we will issue a parking fine.
Blue badge holders travelling as a passenger
As long as a blue badge is displayed with a valid pay and display ticket, you are entitled to the extra time. It doesn't matter if you are the owner of the vehicle, or not.
