Apply for a new or request renewal of an existing advisory disabled parking bay

Find out how to apply for advisory disabled parking bay markings, including the criteria you need to fulfil and an outline of the application process.

Advisory disabled parking bays are marked as white lines on a public residential road.

These bays give parking spaces for Blue Badge holders close to their home if:

  • they do not have off-street parking facilities
  • there is heavy demand for on-street parking

Any Blue Badge holder can use an advisory disabled parking bay if they display their Blue Badge.

Suffolk County Council will not be able to prevent non-Blue Badge holders parking in these bays as they are advisory markings.
