Blue Badge permit

If you are visually impaired or a driver or passenger with a disability, you may be eligible for a Blue Badge parking permit.

blue badge

The European style Blue Badge Scheme, introduced in 2000, is governed by the Disabled Persons Badges for Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Regulations 1991 which amended the 1982 Regulations made by the Secretary of State for Transport (under Section 21 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970).

The scheme is to allow people with permanent and severe walking disabilities and blind people to park their vehicles near to their required destination to enable them to work, fulfil their domestic responsibilities and enjoy leisure and other pursuits. Only those who would otherwise be incapable of getting to shops, public buildings or other places are eligible to receive a badge under the scheme. In all cases entitlement depends on the applicants ability to walk. Considerations such as difficulty in carrying parcels are not taken into account.

The blue badge allows the user to park in restricted areas (including on yellow lines). You pay only £2 for a maximum of three years. One passport-sized photo and proof of your medical condition may also be required.
