Petition Over Disabled Parking Bays in Sheffield

Petition Over Disabled Parking Bays in Sheffield

A petition has been set up by a Sheffield citizen to protest at discrimination against disabled drivers in the city’s major new roads upgrading scheme.

Streets Ahead is a huge city-wide highways maintenance contract that is upgrading and then maintaining the condition of city’s roads, pavements, street lights, bridges and other items on or around the streets and is the largest highway investment contract ever seen in Sheffield, worth £2bn.

However, Ann-Marie Marshall claims that they have resurfaced ‘on street parking zones’ across Sheffield but have not included “disabled bays” which is discriminatory . Ann-Marie has started the petition to send to Julie Dore, the leader of Sheffield City Council. It has so far got over 160 signatures.

“Disabled adults, children and carers should be able to shop locally, meet friends and support local businesses. Without “disabled bays”, this makes it difficult and is discriminatory” says Ann-Marie.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
