Disabled Parking Bays

 

What does this mean?

This is a parking space for Blue Badge holders only. In Gateshead, you must display a Blue Badge to park in a disabled parking space.

What will happen if I do not display a valid Blue Badge?

If you stop in a disabled bay (even just to pick up or set down a passenger) and you do not display a valid Blue Badge, you may receive a Penalty Charge Notice. You may also receive a Penalty Charge Notice if you display your badge the wrong way round. You must display your badge with the expiry date and serial number visible from outside the vehicle. The photograph should never be visible.

Loading and Unloading

Unless a Blue Badge is displayed, loading and unloading is not allowed.

What happens if I park slightly over the bay markings?

You must park completely inside the bay markings and you should not use the space unless all of your vehicle can fit inside the bay markings. Any vehicle parked with at least one wheel outside the bay markings may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.

The sign does not show any days of operation.

If any sign does not mention specific days, it means that it is in operation every day of the week.
