Nearly 3000 residents have been issued with “blue badges” in York.
The badges entitle the owner to park “on street” closer to amenities than otherwise would be the case.
The vast majority of the badges have been issued to those with walking disabilities or who receive DLA.
In addition there is a green badge scheme in operation for the severely disabled. This allows access to parking within the City centre.
The York Council controversially refused to exempt green badge holder’s from the Lendal Bridge access restrictions a couple of months ago.
