Reasons for the decision:

To continue the Councils policy of marking out disabled parking bays in residential

streets that are heavily parked and where disabled people may have trouble in finding a parking space close enough to where they live without experiencing real difficulty in getting from their car to their home.

To not install the disabled bays would result in the applicants continuing to

experience difficulty in getting to and from their vehicle. To not remove un-needed

disabled parking bays would leave parking spaces unused that could relieve parking

pressures in the area.
