Letter: It's about time these parent toddler parking bays were used by blue badge holders too

A few weeks ago, having seen an article in the paper regarding blue badge parking at Ravenside, I responded by saying I too was issued with a penalty for using a parent toddler bay.

The situation remains the same, as my picture shows.The blue badge bays near Asda Living are non-existent yet there are many empty parent toddler bays.At the time of writing this, the blue badge bays are still sealed off as work continues on the B&M store since the floodsWhilst I appreciate the work needs to be done and nearby bays have to be sealed for safety, these parent toddler bays should allowed to be used, even temporarily, by blue badge holders, as the reason we are issued with these blue badges is due to many impairments.Every person issued a fine over the past few months should have the decision reversed immediately as the ‘private’ company offered no alternative parking right outside the doors of these retail outlets.I feel this should be pursued on behalf of all who have received – and will continue to receive – extortionate fines?
