Disabled parking

Disabled parking bays may be used by anyone with a Blue Badge, the original applicant does not have exclusive use.

Read about the Blue Badge scheme in Wales.

Not all car parks have disabled parking bays. 

Disabled parking charges

In pay and display car parks parking is free for disabled drivers as long as the blue badge and clock are displayed.

In multi-storey car parks normal parking charges apply with a blue badge.

City centre disabled parking bays

Corn Street pedestrian improvements

Works for temporary footway widening are taking place on Corn Street and Upper Dock Street to provide improved pedestrian access and space for social distancing in the city centre. This includes road narrowing to provide additional space for pedestrians. Corn Street, Upper Dock Street, and Skinner Street will now operate with a one-way vehicle system. View map (pdf)

As part of this work, disabled parking bays on Upper Dock Street are being reassigned to alternative locations including additional disabled bays in city centre off street car parks such as Emlyn Street and Faulkner Road. The disabled parking bays on nearby Skinner Street remain.

The next phase of this work is to install controlled crossing points across Corn Street and Skinner Street, to provide improved pedestrian access between bus stations.

Parking in resident permit parking areas  

Blue badge holders should make sure the clock parking disc is always displayed.

  • areas for resident permit holders only: Blue badge holders may park in these areas for a maximum of 3 hours, i.e. the same as parking on double yellow lines, as long as no obstruction is caused.
  • areas where waiting is limited between certain hours except for resident permit holders: there is no waiting limit for blue badge holders
