Parking Parking restrictions

Parking for blue badge holders

The rules are relaxed for disabled badge holders, so that parking is easier for anyone with poor mobility.

Drivers displaying a blue badge can:

  • use parking bays across the city for free and for an unlimited time;
  • use the disabled parking bays reserved for blue badge holders 24 hours, 7 days a week;
  • park for up to three hours on a single or double yellow line as long as there are no loading restrictions. The clock on the badge must be set to show your time of arrival.

Find out more about the Blue Badge Scheme.

Find disabled parking in the city centre

If you park in a disabled parking bay without displaying a current badge you are likely to get a parking ticket.

If you notice anyone ignoring any of our parking restrictions, please report it to us.
