Disabled Bays outside school

Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
Hi,

My son goes to a specialist school which has three disabled bays outside. The school keep allowing other vehicles and for a whole month last year a skip and shed to use the space.
I have written to the Head and they were politely rude about it.

I want to take it further because it’s putting all 20 kids in danger when the taxis and our car have to stop in the road.

What are my next best steps in Law?
I’m a bit sceptical about complaints as it seems a way of the issue being thrown in the long grass and this is a breach of statutory law (Reasonable Adjustments, Equality Act) and so I’d like to hold the school fully accountable.

Many tgabjs in advance

If they are disabled bays then only disabled people should use them. This is up to the Traffic Wardens I think to sort out. However, just for this week, take some photos every day to give clear evidence. As someone who relied heavily on my blue badge before I had knee replacements, I know just how important it is to have these bays available when you need them.
Hello and welcome

Perhaps take pictures for evidence. I know your pain but you must stay calm here as the person may well have a “hidden” impairment.
I believe that a disabled bay can only be used by someone DISPLAYING a blue badge.
If they are not displaying a badge, they shouldn't be parked there!

100% correct.

I just took my wife to a dentist in Xchurch this afternoon, as usual there was a car in the sole disabled bay, it's often a staff member (I've seen them both parking and unparking - is that a word?), I took her in and commented to the receptionist that some F***wit is in the disabled bay without a Blue Badge as usual.

Left the wife in there and went outside to wait, ten minutes later receptionist came out and moved her car. :roll:
Well done Ayjay, Christchurch isn't the easiest place to park at the best of times. Many, many moons I used to work above the library.
