Importance of accessible bays

We have been made aware that some people are parking in accessible bays on campus when not entitled to do so. It is essential that accessible bays are only used by those with a valid Government Blue Badge or accessible permit to park. If people with a real need for the bays cannot park, it can seriously disrupt their day and may result in missing lectures or work time.

Please remember that some people who require these bays:

  • Have no other option but to drive and park on campus
  • Require the larger bays to get out of their vehicle, for example fully opening the car door if they are in a wheelchair or on crutches
  • Need to move their vehicle to other accessible bays multiple times within one day
  • Need to park as close to their building as possible

If you park in accessible bays when you are not entitled to do so, you may receive a Parking Charge Notice. There is no warning given for this PCN.

If you cannot find a space, drive to another car park valid for your permit. Park Wood Courts generally have spaces available every day.
