As a result of an enquiry received regarding the loss of 7 disabled parking bays in Marygate on Charter Market days (i.e. Wednesday and Saturday), Northumberland County Council would like to consult with stakeholders in Berwick to understand the impact of this long standing arrangement on disabled people.  

They are particularly interested to hear from blue badge holders about whether the loss of the 7 disabled parking bays in Marygate on Charter Market days causes them any significant difficulties and if they are aware of all the alternative parking options that blue badge holders have in the town centre.

Some background information relating to this issue is available and three possible options have been identified to reduce the impact on disabled parking bay users during Charter Market days and the council would welcome any feedback from stakeholders on these options.

An online response form is available using the following link:  Paper copies of the form should be returned to Northumberland County Council Depot, Northumberland Road, Tweedmouth, Berwick upon Tweed, Northumberland TD15 2AS.  You can also email your completed form to This email address is being protected from spambots.

All responses should be returned by 31st July 2018.
