More disabled parking for York

Darlington and Stockton Times: More disabled parking for York More disabled parking for York

THE region’s tourism capital is making life easier for its disabled visitors.

City of York Council is increasing the amount of disabled parking spaces in the city centre.

Blue badge holders are able to park free of charge anywhere in all council owned car parks, which provide a number of spaces that are wider and set aside specifically for use by blue badge holders only.

Work has now begun on expanding the number of disabled spaces in car parks in the city centre to try to better serve those who have restricted mobility.

Cabinet member for transport Dave Merrett said: “Through this investment we are not only increasing the number of off-street disabled parking spaces but encouraging groups and individuals to come forward and suggest even more areas where we could potentially add further disabled spaces on council car parks.”

Groups and individuals can submit suggestions to be considered by emailing highway.regulation@york.gov.uk

Do you know I live in Northallerton, and have seen lots of folks getting out there 4x4 vehicles or 2012/2013 cars in the Disabled spaces in Tesco or in the town centre, and literally running to the shops or hairdressers.
Who polices these frauds, no one I can see.
One chap I saw near the post office after parking in a disabled space and after putting his badge up, ran 100 yards to catch his even fitter wife up !!!! What's that about.
