Section 10: Duty to keep disabled street parking orders under review

55.Section 10 places a general duty on local authorities who have made orders in respect of disabled street parking places to keep the provision of those parking places under continual review.

56.The continuing need for a parking place need not be linked to an original applicant, as any disabled badge holder is able to use any designated parking place. The local authority in exercising this continuing duty will be able to use their discretion, perhaps linked to overall usage, when considering whether or not to vary or revoke the order.
