Disabled persons parking place - assessment criteria

Ayrshire Roads Alliance must decide:

    • whether it is possible to identify a suitable on-road parking place from which there is convenient access to the applicant’s address.
    • that the provision of the disabled parking place will not compromise safe and efficient traffic management locally.

A bay may not be provided if:

    • the bay would be located within 15 metres of a junction.
    • the bay would be located within a turning facility.
    • the bay would be likely to cause an obstruction.
    • the bay is not on a road which the Roads Authority maintains (if so, a request should be made directly to those who have management responsibilities for these areas such as a housing association or factor)
    • Any disabled parking place provided should not be considered as a parking space reserved for the sole use of the applicant or any other individual.
    • The applicant must inform Ayrshire Roads Alliance if the bay requires renewal or for any reason is no longer required.
    • Renewals require the applicant to complete a new application.
