Disabled Parking on Bournemouth Roads

Find out about parking options we provide for disabled people on our roads

Disabled bays on the road are clearly marked with the word ‘Disabled’. You must display your disabled badge so the wheelchair symbol and expiry date can be seen through your windscreen.

You also need to set your time clock to the time you arrived.

In the Town Centre, you can’t park for more than three hours between 8 am and 6 pm
