Personalised permit bays for blue badge holders
If you applied under the non automatic walking criteria, you may be asked to attend a mobility assessment at the Hackney Service Centre. The mobility team will contact you to arrange an appointment.
If the scheduled date doesn’t suit you, please rearrange the appointment. If you do not attend, then we will close your application.
If you’re a blue badge holder, and your mobility impairment makes it difficult for you to walk short distances, but you don’t have access to off-street parking, you may be able to get a personalised permit bay installed outside your home or in a residential car park managed by the Council’s parking services.
If you have a valid blue badge and want to apply for a personalised permit bay, you’ll need to apply for a free companion badge or an estate parking permit, this will be linked to the one vehicle entitled to park in the personalised permit bay.
For any advice about personalised permit bays, email firstname.lastname@example.org call 020 8356 8328.
There are 3 steps to getting a personalised permit bay for drivers with disabilities:
- a two-stage review
- advertising and installing the parking bay

Check that you meet the eligibility criteria (see stage 1 below). Due to the legal process we have to follow, it can take a minimum of 3 months to install a bay. We have to advertise the proposed changes and give people a chance to object.
