To park in Cornwall car parks for free by the disable drivers you would need to show that you had a free tax disc, now the Government has abolished them, this is Cornwall way of checking.

Quote

Thank you for your recent communication regarding the removal of tax disks by the DVLA. Earlier this year the Government announced changes to the vehicle taxation system which means there will no longer be a legal requirement for any vehicle to display a tax disc. Although the new legislation comes into force on 1 October, the Government has only recently advised that local authorities must make their own arrangements.

The Council is currently considering its new policy and, after consultation, will introduce the policy in the New Year 2015. In the meantime the arrangements outlined below will apply:

Nil rate tax disc holders are requested to continue to display their tax disc until it expires.
Up to two weeks before expiry, they should contact the Council’s Parking Service to give details of the vehicle’s make and model and its registration number

Email: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Write: Parking Services, PO Box 664, TR1 9DH

The Parking Service will verify the details and add the information into its system as a vehicle exempt from enforcement in Cornwall Council car parks due to its Nil and Disabled status, provided a valid blue badge is displayed.

This information will then be available to the Enforcement Officers on site as they patrol and they will be able to identify the exempt vehicles.

Note: If a vehicle is not displaying a tax disc or has not been applied for exemptions as above, then the Enforcement Officers will not be aware of its status and will issue Penalty Charge Notices.

This approach will continue until the Council has determined its long term policy in the New Year 2015, upon which further guidance will be issued. I hope this clarifies the position but please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information

BUT there is another arguement somewhere on the web that talks about disabled getting free parking. As some posters say ''disabled'' does not mean ''unable to pay'' The parking bays are nearer exits etc for convenience not a freebie.
