To ask Her Majesty’s Government what are the rules regarding disabled parking spaces on private land, such as hotels and supermarkets; whether there is a minimum number of such spaces required in each case; and if so, how that number is calculated.

The Blue Badge Scheme does not apply to off-street car parks, whether these are provided and managed by a local authority or privately. The Department for Transport provides guidance on the provision of parking facilities for disabled people in Section 5 of ‘Inclusive Mobility: A Guide to Best Practice on Access to Pedestrian and Transport Infrastructure’. However, it is ultimately a matter for car park operators to decide on the parking spaces that they make available to disabled motorists.
