Create personal disabled parking spaces for blue badge holders outside their own homes.

This priviledge should only be offered to those persons on higher rate mobilty rate DLA

At present such spaces are routinely refused by most councils on grounds of high cost due to red tape that has to be followed to create them. Disabled parking bays make a huge difference to a persons quality of life, disability equality and civil rights.

Spaces should be able to be created cheaply and simply through special dispensation from the Department for Transport to create enforceable disabled parking bays without the need for expensive and lengthy Traffic Regulation Orders. This would require the same arrangements in place currently to create a bus stop with no stopping "cage".

Why is this idea important?

1) promote disability equality

2) reduces costs for local authorities

3) Quick and simple to achieve

4) Represents common sense and fair approach to disabled parking near their homes
