Appeal a denied residential parking spot for people with disabilities

If you applied for a reserved parking space in front of your home due to a mobility limitation or disability, and that request was denied, you can request a hearing to review the decision.


You should file this appeal if you applied for reserved residential parking in your neighborhood through the Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) and were denied.

How to submit an appeal

To appeal, fill out the appeal form. You must submit it within 30 days of the date on your denial letter from the PPA.

You’ll need to attach:

  • A copy of your driver’s license.
  • A copy of your vehicle registration.
  • A copy of the denial letter.

You can mail, email, or fax completed applications and attachments to:

Office of Administrative Review
100 S. Broad St., Room 400
Philadelphia, PA 19110-1099


Fax: (215) 686-5228

You will receive an acknowledgement letter when your appeal is processed.
