Removal of requirement to display tax discs
Please leave your disabled nil disabled tax disc on display when parking in our car parks
To help our Officers to identify the vehicle as having a nil disabled tax category we request, in the interim, although no longer required by law, motorists leave the nil disabled tax disc on their vehicle even after it expires
The concessions offered to disabled drivers in off street locations vary between local authorities. The DVLA has been liaising with all stakeholders including local authorities around what information can be made available to them from the records they hold. We are currently looking at ways to continue to administer the concession.
No decision has yet been taken by our Councillors on whether to vary the level of concession in Bournemouth. If a decision is made to alter the concession we will publicise this so that motorists are aware of the change.
Bournemouth Borough Council recognise that the disabled who live, work or visit the borough may need to park closer to amenities or their destination of choice. All council car parks have an element of spaces reserved for disabled blue badge holders. All vehicles parked in a disabled space must follow the following guidance to avoid being issued with a ticket.
As well as designated spaces within our car parks, we have also installed disabled bays on the road at convenient locations across the borough. These bays are clearly marked with the word 'Disabled' painted on the road. In town centres these bay are restricted to a maximum stay of 3 hours between 8am and 6pm. Outside of these times they remain as disabled bays, but have no time limit imposed on them.
Disabled motorists or their family/carers must comply with the regulations of the Blue Badge Scheme and display a disabled badge correctly with the wheelchair symbol and expiry date showing through the windscreen. A time clock must also be displayed that is set to the arrival time in that location.
Residents of Bournemouth may apply for a disabled bay to be installed outside (or as near as possible) to their property. There are however some restrictions and considerations to take into account when applying, as listed below;
