About access protection marking
An access protection marking is an advisory marking that can be used to highlight a dropped kerb (vehicle access). The marking is often
referred to as a 'H' marking. It assists to highlight to drivers that it is an area where they should not be parking.
About disabled parking bays
Disabled parking bays are advisory markings put on the road outside a person's home to provide an area where a blue badge holder can
park their vehicle displaying a blue badge. There are certain criteria that are required to be met before a bay can be provided.
