DISABLED PARKING PERMIT SCHEME

In Ireland the Parking Permit enables the permit holder to park the vehicle in designated on-street accessible parking bay free of charge for an unlimited duration unless otherwise stated.

A person with a disability requires access to a disabled parking bay because of its size and access to amenities and facilities. An accessible parking bay is larger than the standard parking space which enables a driver or passenger to transfer into their wheelchair or alighting from their vehicle.
