Blue Badge Scheme

The aim of the Blue Badge Scheme is to help people with severe mobility problems caused by visible and non-visible ('hidden') disabilities to park close to their destination.

To apply for a Blue Badge, you will need to complete a form on the GOV.UK website. The form will ask you some questions about your circumstances to check your initial eligibility. If you are identified as eligible based on your answers, you will be asked to complete further questions that will provide the information we require to assess your eligibility in full for a Blue Badge.

You need to complete this form if you are applying for your first Blue Badge or if you want to re-apply for a Badge you have previously held that has expired. We will not automatically send you a new badge when your current one expires. The expiry date is displayed on the current badge and it is your responsibility to re-apply for a new Blue Badge.

The GOV.UK website contains all the information you need to apply or re-apply for a Blue Badge.
