A mobility parking permit lets you park in mobility parking spaces. Mobility parking spaces are wider so you can put a wheelchair or walker alongside the car. They’re identified by a wheelchair sign painted on the ground.

If it works for disabled people we know it will work for everyone,

  • ➡ Do you sometimes feel confused, disorientated, or anxious due to a disability and need support?
  • ➡ Can you walk, but not far and need mobility aids?
  • ➡ Do you need help to move around safely because of a disability?
  • ➡ Are you a wheelchair user or unable to walk?
  • ➡ Do you struggle to breathe, get pains and sometimes get anxious so you need support to get to places?

Free parking for disabled or older people

If you have a mobility parking permit but don’t need the wider parking space, you may be able to use a standard card park for longer than the time stated.

Contact your local council for information about parking concessions for disabled people or older people, especially if you have a Super Gold card.
