25/05/2010 - Mobility aid users 'should not pay for parking'

See our latest range Mobility aid users should not be expected to pay for parking, according to a disability group.

The Epsom Access Group is among those to be campaigning against the parking charges for mobility aid users, with chairman Geoff Jelly stating that he is to consult legal experts on the matter, reports the Epsom Guardian.

Mr Jelly said: "I am following the experiences of the legal costs raised for the Ashtead Tesco campaign and how funds were raised in Lincoln to challenge charging there."

Despite opposition from the groups and the local MP Chris Grayling, councillors voted in favour of scrapping a proposed scheme to introduce free parking for mobility aid users in the area earlier this year.

If the Blue Badge scheme was introduced in Epsom, motorists who are disabled would be able to park on the street for free.

Drivers who hold a blue badge would even be able to park on single or double yellow lines for up to three hours.
