Just found out about this. Shocking 6-2 vote in favour of charging disabled people to park. Maybe the charging is fair - not all disabled people are in need of money - maybe not. However, should these councillors not know that often the effort of parking, getting to the machine, then back to the car then back to the shop is a lot too much for sufferers of some illnesses?
Could they introduce a pre-pay system for blue badge holders to allow pay-in-advance?

Blue badge holders should be charged, like it or not its not a bad deal you're still using a car, just don't understand all these concessions incl. entitlement to free Severn bridge crossing.
