Or in legalese: "To remove from the Orders the exemption from charging for disabled badge holders, invalid carriages, vehicles in lieu of invalid carriages and drivers with a severe disability issued with a note from Wiltshire Council."

This is part of a series of measures to increase parking charges in the county, some of which require traffic orders. These are now out to consultation. Should you wish to comment then go to the WC website here.

Closing date for the consultation is May 23. The WC administration will introduce the new charges shortly thereafter.
