Blue badge parking permits

The Blue Badge (Disabled Persons) Parking Scheme is a national scheme that allows disabled people in England to maintain their independence by enabling them to park as close as possible to their destination.

Who can apply?

The scheme is open to eligible disabled people regardless of whether they are travelling as a driver or as a passenger.

You can apply for a Blue Badge for yourself, someone else or your organisation.

How can you apply?

You will need to complete a Blue Badge application form online.

If you are not able to apply online, please call us on 01709 382121 and ask for the Blue Badge Team. We will then book an appointment so we can go through the application with you over the telephone.

You can use the same form to apply for a new badge, reapply or change your details.

If you want to apply on behalf of your organisation you may qualify for an organisational badge.
