The Department for Transport's Blue Badge scheme for the disabled driver allows for blue badge holders to park in certain restricted areas for up to three hours (areas and times may vary depending upon the local authority). This concession applies to the public highway only and is not relevant on private land. In this regard, whilst some landlords provide preferential parking for blue badge holders, this is generally subject to the same terms and conditions found elsewhere in the car park, including any tariff payments that apply to users of the car park and/or any maximum stay period. To avoid confusion, you should always check the terms and conditions displayed on the signage on site.
