Blue Badges

Did you know?

Most blue badge applications are delayed because they do not include supporting medical evidence. If you do not provide this information with your application, it cannot be processed.

Apply for a Blue Badge

If you are disabled you can apply for a Blue Badge to help you park close to your destination. The badge costs £10.

You can use a Blue Badge as a driver or as a passenger. You do not need to own your own car.

Before you apply, check if you are eligible for a Blue Badge.

About the application process

We aim to process applications quickly. Delays of 8 to 10 weeks can occur if you do not send the correct documents or need further assessment.

  • You need to submit all mandatory documents and a photo.
  • If you apply online and provide a current email address, you will be kept updated about the progress of your application.
  • If you would prefer to apply using a paper application form, see below.

For details about what you need to do, see the Blue Badge application process.
