Blue Badge (disabled parking)

A Blue Badge is a disabled parking permit which allows people with certain disabilities to park closer to where they need to go.

You may qualify if you:

  • Have an enduring and substantial disability which causes you, during the course of a journey to be unable to walk
  • Are registered blind

Children aged under three years with certain medical conditions, and drivers with severe disability in both arms, may also qualify.
