Blue Badge disabled parking

Find out about the Blue Badge disabled parking scheme including where you can park, who is eligible and how to apply.
Requests for disabled parking bays

Applications for disabled parking bays are on hold until the review of our parking policy is complete. You can still submit an application form in this time and we will write to all applicants once the parking policy is agreed to confirm next steps.

Beware online scams

There are a number of third-party websites claiming to process Blue Badge applications for £50. You should avoid these websites and use our official application form. If you are eligible for a Blue Badge, it will only cost you £10. If you have had a negative experience with one of these scams, you can contact the Citizens Advice Bureau for support.
