On 17th June 2020, we advertised proposals to create two new on street Disabled Badge Holders Only bays in Church Street, Welwyn located near the junction of High Street.

The disabled bays are proposed to enable better provision for disabled badge holders closer to the shops, as in the last year there has been an increase of those eligible for a disabled person's badge.

Full details of the proposals are contained in the draft Order, the plan and the statement of reasons for proposing which can be viewed below, or during normal reception opening hours at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, The Campus, Welwyn Garden City from Wednesday 17th June 2020. A copy can also be sent via post during this period upon request.
