Using a Brown Badge in Hillingdon

Residents over 65 with a Brown Badge can use dedicated Brown Badge bays located in council owned car parks, on street and in some privately operated car parks in Hillingdon.

The Brown Badge scheme is part of the council's ongoing effort to improve parking facilities for local residents and provide easy-access parking for older motorists who may have mobility problems.

How the scheme works

London Borough of Hillingdon residents, aged over 65, can obtain a Brown Badge to park in Brown Badge bays within the borough.

Designated Brown Badge bays are located close to car park exit points and where possible, near to the pay and display machines.

A valid Brown Badge must be displayed clearly at all times when parking in a designated Brown Badge bay. 

Brown Badge holders are required to pay the appropriate parking charge at the pay and display ticket machine.
