Yes, I saw "access=delivery", but it seemed like a stretch when most
people think something else when they see that term. Still, it seems to
fit somewhat for this purpose. If there is a consensus on this, I'll go
with it.

I agree with this description, although I may clarify "Motor vehicle
access ..."

I concur. This instance is a good example: the terrain is not suitable
for a "normal" wheelchair (i.e. without special wheels and tires). In
addition, presumably (legally speaking), anyone with an official placard
could park there, regardless of whether they use a wheelchair or not.
Again, I'll see if a consensus develops.

Thanks for your input.
