Blue badge:
In addition to the designated disabled parking bays available throughout Leeds city centre, blue badge holders may park on-street for free and without time limit at both metered and 'pay and display' sites.

Blue badge holders can also park in designated disabled bays free and without time limit unless the sign states otherwise - please check local signs for information. Where there is a time restriction the special parking disc needs to be displayed showing the time of arrival together with the disabled badge.

Badge holders can also park on single or double yellow lines for up to 3 hours as long as both the blue badge and special parking disk that shows your arrival time is displayed. There are some local restrictions to this, for example, where there is a ban on vehicle loading or unloading. You should always check local signs.
