City of York Council is increasing the amount of disabled parking spaces in York’s 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.
The number of disabled spaces has increased in the following areas by:
- · Castle car park- increased from six to 13 spaces
- · Bootham Row car park – increased from two to nine spaces
- · Monk Bar car park– increased from three to seven spaces
- · Piccadilly car park– increased by five – which will see an increase in the number of spaces set aside for use at the shopmobility scheme
