The council can help people with disabilities by providing parking bays outside their home. A disabled bay is only introduced if the person holds a valid blue badge and is frequently unable to park within walking distance of their property.
A disabled parking bay is not exclusive to the person for whom it has been provided. Any person with a valid blue badge can park in a disabled bay at any time.
To be eligible for a disabled parking bay you must:
- have a valid blue badge
- live in Ealing borough
- demonstrate a genuine need for the bay or have a severe difficulty in walking
- be a vehicle driver
- have no off-street parking
