Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
There is no legal obligation directly. However there may be an indirect requirement under the Equality Act 2010 which says that disabled people can't be discriminated against and it may be argued its indirect discrimination. There are codes of practice when it comes to parking spaces, but these are not legally binding.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Hi Alex

The person in Question took on a lease, knowing she was disabled, but then had no car. As she got better she bought a car and parks it in the Loading/Turning area, and says "I'm disabled" !
