Blue Badges

The Blue Badge Scheme (disabled parking permit) is for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems. It generally allows Blue Badge holders to park close to where they need to go.

Apply for a Blue Badge

You will need to send us a photo, documents and the payment fee of £10 to complete your application. You can ring us to pay the fee.

If your application is turned down

If your application is turned down we will tell you why and, you can ask us to reconsider your case if you think this is unfair. You can also re-apply if your mobility problems become more serious, but, we will not consider a new application within six months of your latest application unless your mobility has deteriorated significantly.


Expired Blue Badges

You must return your expired badge to us.
