Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 360175.

There has been a Disabled bay which has now been marked at the top of Plaiters Way..(August 2021), ..this Disabled bay has not been used by the Disabled badge holder since June 2016 when the badge holder moved to Leighton Buzzard. Owing to the parking situation we have in said location or should I say the LACK of. Can this bay be re-allocated BACK into a public parking. If you could help with this matter it would be much appreciated.

  • Another resident has called to request the rempval of the disabled bay as no one has used it in over 6 years and it is taking up parking spaces that could be used by other residents.

  • Another call received about this. Would like to request the disabled bay is made into regular parking bay as there is a lack of parking for residents here and this would help solve this.

  • Traffic Management Team have received an email from customer with the same request. This has been added to our list, but unfortunately we do need to go through the full consultation process in order to revoke an existing parking restriction. This can be quite a lenghty process, taking up to around 6 - 9 months. It's on our list and will be reviewed as soon as possible.
