Disabled Parking:

Bath and North East Somerset Council operate a blue badge scheme for disabled car users. They also recognise disabled permits issued in other countries.

Disabled Parking in Car Parks:

Designated easy access parking bays are available for blue badge holders in most city centre car parks.

Charges apply in all Bath and North East Somerset Council car parks with the exception of the Sports Centre car park.

Some private car parks charge for disabled users. Please check car park signage for further information.

Disabled On-Street Parking:
There are designated disabled parking bays in the city centre marked with a D on the map. These have white bay markings on-street and the words 'DISABLED'.

You can also park in permit and pay and display on-street parking spaces without limit. When parking on-street you need to display your blue badge at all times.

Parking on yellow lines is permitted for a maximum of 3 hours except where there is a ban on loading and unloading.

Both the blue badge and time clock must be clearly and correctly displayed. Please note that blue badge holders are not necessarily exempt from the tow away scheme if the parked vehicle is creating a hazard.

Motorcycle Parking:

Please note that parking is only free in designated motorcycle parking bays in the following car parks:

• Charlotte Street (next to the disabled parking bays at the main entrance)
• Avon Street (Avon Street, on the lower level of the multi storey car park)
• Broad Street (Broad Street, adjacent to the pay and display machine)
• Bath Sports & Leisure Centre (on the paved area under the walkway and also in the undercover area on the left hand side)

Motorcycles not parked in these bays (i.e. parked in normal car parking bays) will be required to purchase a ticket the same as other motor vehicles.

In addition to parking bays, there are secure points at the following locations:
• Portland Place
• Sydenham Buildings
• Westgate Buildings
