Disabled Persons' Parking Bays Act

The East Renfrewshire Council is updating the Traffic Regulation Orders for on-street Disabled Persons' Parking Bays.

The Disabled Persons' Parking Places (Scotland) Act 2009 requires Local Authorities in Scotland to designate and control the use of all disabled persons' parking spaces.

On 7 April 2015 the Council made:

In order to comply with the requirements of the Disabled Persons' Parking Places (Scotland) Act 2009 the Council will regularly promote Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) which designates spaces on-street for the exclusive use of vehicles displaying a valid Blue Badge. Any vehicle occupying a designated space and not displaying a valid Blue Badge, in accordance with the Blue Badge Scheme in Scotland, risks being issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.

Proposed new On-Street Disabled Persons Parking Places Order

A consultation is now underway for a proposed new TRO to be made by the Council to include recently installed DPPP's which are not already covered by the current On-Street Order and the removal of DPPP's which are no longer required.

The following PDF's give details of the proposed new On-Street Order:

ANY PERSON may object to the making of the TRO by notice either via email to or in writing to Chief Officer Legal and Procurement, East Renfrewshire Council Headquarters, Rouken Glen Road, Giffnock G46 6UG. Objections must be received by 3 Aug 2018 and must state the name and address of the objector, the matters to which they relate and the grounds on which they are made.
