With over ten million visitors to Watford Shopping Centre every year, the disabled are being pushed further and further away from being able to get easy access to these shops.  street disabled parking spaces have been replaced with either bus stops, taxi ranks and bicycle lanes.  The disabled parking spaces taken away have not been replaced any other disabled spaces on the street .  no longer able to use the streets as they have now been passed to resident permits only. some disabled bays are shared with deliveries and therefore the times are very restricted when you can and cannot park.  Watford council must be held accountable for making sure the disabled can also use their facilities and they are not just for the able bodied!  We request they make provision for more disabled bays to enable the disabled to easily access the shopping centre from the street areas.  as a disabled person myself, i find it really difficult to park when shopping in the shops accessed from the streets and many of the restaurants too.  i believe Watford Council need to re-assess its street plans and give us more disabled bays on the streets considering they have a massive 10 MILLION shoppers a year, many of whom are disabled!
