The County Council works with the District Councils and private car park operators to ensure that car parking management is co-ordinated with other transportation policy, parking charges are co-ordinated to achieve the objectives of the Local Transport Plan strategy, and that information on car park occupancy is shared and disseminated to the public.
If a resident is disabled, has difficulty parking near their home, has a Blue Badge and does not have a driveway, garage or other off-street parking place, they may apply to have a Disabled Parking Space (DPS) marked on the highway outside their home.
Applicants must meet certain eligibility requirements, such as receipt of the Higher Rate of Disability Living Allowance, in order to qualify for a DPS.
Blue Badge Application Forms
When the completed form and supporting information have been received, it will be investigated by the Traffic Management Team. If the application is successful, it will be added to the future list for consideration as a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).
For this facility to be legally enforceable, a TRO must be pursued involving a consultative and legal process, typically taking up to 20 weeks to complete if no objections are received. You will be contacted when the successful request reaches a live stage of formal consultation.
A new parking scheme has recently been introduced, which affects parking arrangements in Cornmarket, Queen Street, St. Nicholas Street, St Swithin's Street, The Cross, The Trinity and Trinity Street.
This scheme includes changes to disabled parking spaces. You can find out more about this and other information on the Worcester City Centre Parking page.
