Blue Badge scheme

Blue Badge scheme

The Blue Badge scheme helps you park closer to your destination if you’re disabled.

In order to qualify for a badge you must be permanently and substantially disabled and provide evidence of this.

There is a £10 charge when applying for a Blue Badge payable by credit or debit card. If you are not eligible you will be refunded.
