Disabled Bays Outside Houses

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
Does anyone know if you have to be on full rate mobility to have the disabled bay outside your house? As usual the next door neighbour has parked halfway across our house, the other neighbour has parked normal but that still means hubbys car cannot get into the gap they left, getting sick of it now as when the disabled bus brings Sarah home it ends up parking right up the hill.

My father in law was told by the police that even if you have a disabled bay outside your home it is not for your sole use - anyone with a blue badge can park there. Don't know if rules are different outside Scotland, though

Thanks Eun, have just googled and in Cumbria you have to have full rate mobility so i expect thats the same in the whole of the UK....oh bums Image
It varies across the country, Nilla, in this area having a blue badge is the sole criteria for residents, tenants or home-owners, who need a disabled bay on estates covered by the local housing association, otherwise it is the local district council which sets the criteria.
These are the rules in East Sussex, and checking others they are all more or less the same.

Our county don't even like acknowledging that anyone needs a blue badge, let a lone a disabled parking bay.We have to park on the street, and often have to park elsewhere. It can be very frustrating, especially as we have to have residents parking permits,(there is residents parking outside our house) which we do, and people park there without bothering, but nobody seems to do anything about it. Bet if we didn't bother buying one, we would soon get fined! Image
Any good if you try talking to your neighbour?
Our last neighbour in NE Wales was just the same, each morning she'd get her car out of the garage and park it on the road right across the back of us (didn't want to park it in her own driveway, see, blocking people's view of her house!!!!). Then, in front of a third party (her gardener) when I confronted her about it, she said she never parks there. A little Lady Fauntleroy she was, still is, apparently.

In our area you just have to a bue badge - BUT you have to pay the council for the disabled bay and anyone with a blue badge can use it.
