Applying for a disabled parking space

Do you have a disability and want to park your car close to your home or workplace? If so, you can apply for a parking space for the disabled at your municipality. This is a parking space in which other people with a disability can also park their car.

There are conditions for obtaining a disabled parking space .The municipality will consider, for example:

The parking space for people with disabilities is not just for one person. It is not linked to a vehicle registration number. Other people with disabilities can park their vehicles in this space as well. They must, however, also have an EU parking card for people with disabilities.

Do you want to apply for a disabled parking space that is exclusively for your vehicle? If so, apply for a personalised disabled parking space.

Applying for a disabled parking space

The municipality will make a decision on your application. You will receive a letter about this at home.

Local residents then have 6 weeks to lodge an objection. Has no one filed an objection after these 6 weeks? Or have the submitted objections been declared unfounded? Then the municipality will install your disabled parking space within 2 weeks.
