Disabled Parking Policy

At UKPC we believe that one of its most important and primary functions, is to rigorously comply with the Government Disability Discriminations Act.

We also comply to the British Parking Associations requirements and legislations.This includes adhering to any published codes of practice and the training and development of all employees to ensure these standards are consistently met.

We are always flexible and will only apply Parking Charges to vehicles which are not appropriately parked upon our clients request. This is usually for anyone parking in a marked disabled bay without displaying a valid disabled parking permit..

Finally, our wardens often assist the elderly or disabled members of the public by dropping them off to their cars in the car park.

Disabled Motoring UK (DMUK)

Disabled Motoring UK is a national membership charity fighting to improve mobility and access for all disabled people including drivers, passengers, Blue Badge holders, scooter and wheelchair users.

The charity campaigns at national and local government level and works closely with other organisations such as Mutability, the British Parking Association and the Department for Transport.

Disabled Motoring UK is the only UK campaigning charity specifically concerned with the personal mobility and transport needs of disabled people. One of Disabled Motoring UK’s most notable and long-running campaigns is to seek improvements to the Blue Badge parking scheme. We were heavily involved in the government’s recent improvements to the Blue Badge scheme and we are now campaigning for local authorities to ensure badges are only used by those they were issued to. Another ongoing campaign is the Baywatch campaign which tries to encourage supermarkets to actively police their disabled bays to ensure disabled people can park with ease. Since the campaign started a number of the larger supermarkets have started to enforce their bays. Disabled Motoring UK is also concerned by the growing number of local authorities removing the disabled parking concession from their car parks, the difficulty disabled motorists have refueling their vehicles and the problems caused by cars parking on the pavement.

Membership

Membership of Disabled Motoring UK is open to everyone with a disability and costs just £20 a year. Those without a disability are also welcome to join as an associate member. Benefits of being a member include access to a helpline run by experienced information officers, plenty of concessions including ferries, Eurotunnel and car hire and a monthly magazine.

Membership Magazine

The membership magazine is always packed with interesting reports. Recent features have included an adventure on a tall ship, an interview with a Paralympic hopeful and a review of the Chevrolet Aveo. We also keep members up to date with our current campaigns and new legislation.
