Disabled Parking

You need to apply in writing and provide evidence of car ownership, evidence that you hold a "Blue Badge" and in addition evidence that you receive PIP and score 8 or more on the 'moving around' indicator in the award or the higher rate disability living allowance or a letter of support from your GP.  When we receive the application form we will inspect the site and determine if it is safe and practical to provide a parking bay.

We will write to you to inform you if the application has been successful and if so when the parking bay will be marked out.  If you are unsuccessful and disagree with the decision and wish to appeal, please put your appeal in writing to the Corporate Director Economy and Highways, Cumbria County Council, Cumbria House, 117 Botchergate, Carlisle, CA1 1RD.

The number of parking bays that can be provided in any year will be limited by the funding available.
