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.
