What happens next?
We will review your application and get in touch to arrange a site inspection to see if a DRPP is appropriate at the location requested.
After the site inspection, we will send you a letter to confirm if your request has been provisionally approved or refused and whether the bay marking is advisory or mandatory. You should receive this letter within two to three working days after the inspection.
An advisory DRPP marking is not enforceable - the council or police cannot take action if a non-disabled or other disabled person parks in the space.
A mandatory DRPP marking is enforceable by law - can take action against anyone parking in the disabled bay without displaying a Blue Badge.
The current waiting time for disabled resident parking places is 6-12 months.
How to renew your DRPP
The DRPP must be renewed every three years. It will expire at the same time as your Blue Badge.
