Parking in a pay and display car park

From Monday 23 October 2017 Blue Badge holders will have to pay to park in all parking bays in Waverley's car parks. However, Blue Badge holders will now receive an additional free hour when purchasing a ticket for one or more hours of parking. Free permits are also available for Blue Badge holders living in the borough, which entitle the permit holder to park for free (see below for more details and conditions). 

Motorists parking in a disabled bay should also still display their Blue Badge. The maximum stay for a disabled bay is three hours.
