We’ve had a number of applications from disabled residents in the past who have actually passed away by the time we’d been able to programme a new parking scheme in that area and include a formal disabled bay. That has lead to us using advisory disabled bays instead, without the need for a TRO, sign and post (cheaper to introduce and remove when no longer needed)..
Now there is this new distinction we’ve decided to mark the bay and place the ‘DISABLED’ legend internally within the bay. The marking therefore doesn’t comply and remains an advisory.
Probably strongly frowned upon? It’s a work around at this stage as we don’t really have the resources to go through the review or remove or make mandatory process.
