Blue Badge Parking Bay Abuse

Disabled Motoring UK (DMUK) organised a different version of their last Blue Badge Bay Abuse survey in August 2020 and August 2021 because of the COVID pandemic.

They asked the public to complete a survey from home and were asking questions on more general parking experiences. This allowed DMUK to expand the scope of the campaign to other parking settings.

We have ans online survey relating to the abuse of Blue Badge space that can be completed asking for your general experiences of parking for the past 12 months.  Please make sure that you enter start and completion dates. If you wish to have a paper form then either email your details  to info@spelthorneaccess.org.uk or send a text message to 07859 639025 (Please Note our New Number) and we will send a survey form with an SAE for its return.

'Pavement obstructions in Spelthorne (e.g. seating and signage)'

The placement of seating, tables and other objects on footpaths creates hazards for visually impaired people and obstructions for wheelchair users. Please Contact SCAN on info@spelthorneacccess.org.uk

By their very nature A-boards obstruct pedestrians from being able to move in a straight line along the pavement. For information about the guidance in Surrey please visit the Surrey County Council (SCC) web site using the following link www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/permits-and-licences/new-and-temporary-signs/guidance-for-placing-advertising

If you find advertising that does not comply with the guidance provided by SCC or would like to clarify if advertising would be allowed, please contact SCC using our advertising board obstructing the highway form. www9.surreycc.gov.uk/HighwayIssue/whatistheissue.aspx?&code=HO

If you think the situation is an emergency please call Surrey County Council on 0300 200 1003.
