Traffic Engineers from Sustainable Transport and Roads Division visit the blue badge holder at their property address, identify and determine a suitable location for a disabled parking place taking into consideration road safety issues, kerbside space availability and traffic management consideration within the area that could potentially affect the implementation of a disabled parking place. The maximum of 30% of the available kerbside space within the street can be allocated for disabled parking places.
For disabled parking places to be installed on the public road, Dundee City Council are not required to consult neighbours or serve a public notice of intention to provide a disabled parking place. Planning permission is also not required.
Once the application is successful, the applicant receives a letter issued by the Customer Services Department. A period of 9- 12 months may be required for the disabled parking place to be made legally enforceable from its initial application submission. If the applicant is unsuccessful and refused a bay, a letter is issued by Customer Services Department advising the reason for refusal.
