Max Lowry :

Can you explain why you're asking this please? It is likely to be relevant to the answer.

JACUSTOMER-b3670r7o- :

iam ablue badge holder also a social member of a golf club there are only two disabled bays tugged rou nd acorner no where near the main entrance

Max Lowry :

Okay. The blue badge scheme, is a scheme introduced by the government, in respect of parking at public places. The golf club is unlikely to come within this particular scheme.

Max Lowry :

However, the club still has obligations to make reasonable provision for disabled individuals at the club.

Max Lowry :

Albeit, this is under different legislation.

Max Lowry :

There are no set rules as to the appropriate distance, simply a requirement that reasonable provision is made.

JACUSTOMER-b3670r7o- :

am a social member of a golf club also a blue badge holder ther are only two disabled bay tugged around a corner no where near the main entrance

Max Lowry :

You are likely to be able to argue that we reasonable provision is not made for disabled individuals, as required by the Disability Discrimination Act.

Max Lowry :

This means that you should be able to argue that a parking space needs to be closer to the premises. A failure to do that, may give rise to a disability discrimination claim.

Max Lowry :

Are you there?
