The Blue Badge scheme is a national scheme which gives parking concessions for people with certain disabilities, to park nearer to their destination.
Apply for a Blue Badge
You may qualify for a Blue Badge if you’re disabled, blind, or have health problems that make it difficult to get around.
There are two ways to qualify for a Blue Badge
- If you are registered blind, terminally ill or already getting some types of disability benefits you can qualify automatically.
- If you have a physical, non-visible (hidden) or other disability that makes journeys very difficult you may qualify but might need an assessment.
You can apply:
- for yourself
- for someone else
- as an organisation that works with disabled people
You can apply for a blue badge online.
Renew a Blue Badge
When your badge is due to expire you will need to apply for a new one, which you can do up to three months before your current one expires.
Please re-apply as early as possible so we can re-issue your Blue Badge before your current one expires.
You can renew your blue badge online.
