The reasons for implementing this Order are to provide and promote the proper use of Disabled Persons’ Parking Places in accordance with the Disabled Persons’ Parking Places (Scotland) Act 2009.
The Order increases the provision of Disabled Persons’ Parking Places in Stornoway by seven spaces, these being located at key public service areas at the Council Offices and at the Sports Centre. The Order also introduces two Disabled Persons’ Parking Places in Tarbert, Isle of Harris, again at key public locations being the Council Offices and the main public carpark. The Order will prohibit any person from parking any vehicle in a Disabled Persons Parking Place unless a Blue Badge, issued in accordance with the national Blue Badge Scheme is validly displayed on the vehicle.
The Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Disabled Persons’ Parking Places) Order 2013 provided an initial thirteen Disabled Persons Parking Places in Stornoway town centre. For simplicity, the 2013 Order will be revoked and replaced with the new Order; the new Order includes the original thirteen Disabled Persons’ Parking Places per the 2013 Order and adds a further nine disabled persons’ Parking Places as described above.
