Disabled people can park for free (for a duration of 3 hours only) in all Newark and Sherwood District Council car parks, provided they are parked in a designated disabled space and a valid disabled person's badge and parking clock are displayed in the vehicle, clearly showing the expiry date of the badge and time of arrival.
Regardless of the availability of disabled parking bays, disabled drivers are not permitted to park on double yellow lines in car parks.
If a blue badge holder cannot get in a disabled space and have to park in an ordinary bay, then they will have to pay and display.
Details of how to obtain a blue disabled parking badges and other information on residents permits/controlled parking zones can be found on the Nottinghamshire County Council website. If you use a car park not operated by the council, please check what charges apply for disabled motorists.
