Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
Disabled people who have reduced mobility and have difficulty getting to and from a public parking space may be eligible for a specially marked parking space at their house. Such parking spaces, commonly called P-stæði in Icelandic, are designated at the legal residence of individuals and only on land owned by the City of Reykjavík.
Specially designated parking spaces are not the same as P-cards which you apply for from a district commissioner.
In order to be eligible for a specially marked P-space you must meet the following conditions:
A specially designated parking space may not be allocated if a parking space is included with the applicant's apartment.
You fill in the application form on My Pages. You must also submit the following supporting documents:
A joint ownership agreement may be requested if no information on parking accompanying a property is available.
The application is taken for processing at a Service Center. The Medical Officer of Reykjavík City reviews medical certificates and calls for necessary information from the City’s Department of Environment and Planning, Reykjavík Parking Service, and the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police.
Following this, an application is accepted or denied at a meeting of a committee composed of representatives from the Department of Welfare, the Department of Environment and Planning as well as the Medical Officer of Reykjavík City.
If your application is denied, and you believe there are exceptional circumstances, you can request a review by the Welfare Council Appeal Board.
If an application is accepted, a written agreement is concluded with a provision for notification of the change of circumstances, e.g. if the person moves or no longer has a need for the parking spot. The maximum duration of the contract is 5 years.
Reykjavík City prepares and installs the signs. The applicant pays for the sign itself, but not the installation. If changes need to be made to the streets or parking lots on City land for the installation of the sign, this is at the expense of Reykjavík City.
For more information, please contact the Reykjavík City Service Center at 411-1111.
