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.
How to apply for a mobility parking permit
Mobility parking permits are managed and issued by both CCS Disability Action and Sommerville Disability Support Services.
Visit their websites to find out about:
- who can apply (eligibility criteria)
- types of permits (short term and long term permits)
- how much a permit costs
- how to apply for a permit (a doctor needs to complete the application form)
- when, where and how you can use your permit.
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.
