People with mobility challenges now have easier access to Faversham town centre after 10 new disabled parking bays were installed in the town’s car parks.

Swale Borough Council installed the new bays to help Blue Badge holders find suitable parking spaces to access the town centre.

Three new bays have been installed at Partridge Lane car park, two at Institute Road, and five at Queens Hall. These bring the total number of disabled bays in council car parks in the town up to 25.

Cllr Richard Palmer, cabinet member for community at the council, said:

“I am delighted we have been able to provide extra disabled parking spaces for local people with mobility issues that want to visit the town.

“Faversham is a popular destination, especially on market days, so we want to be sure we are providing an accessible and inclusive space for people with mobility challenges to visit and enjoy what the town has to offer.”

Cllr Monique Bonney, cabinet member for economy and property, said:

“As part of the high streets capital project, we take onboard the feedback we receive from stakeholders, residents and members, to help improve our town centres.

“We’re working with town and county councils to try to improve the town centre for everyone, and accessibility for people with mobility issues is a crucial part of this work.

“Installation of new disabled bays is important to ensure residents and visitors have good access to our town centres.”
