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.

Re-apply for a blue badge

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.

Please ensure you keep your contact details with us up to date so that any correspondence we may send goes to the right address.

How to re-apply

The re-application process is the same as when applying for a Blue Badge for the first time. This is because:

  • your circumstances (and what you are eligible for) might have changed
  • the criteria for getting a Blue Badge might have changed. We need to assess your situation against the latest criteria.

Changed address

If you are moving address, but are staying within Nottinghamshire, you should send proof of your new address to us so we can keep your record up to date. You can do this via email to or by post to:

The Blue Badge Team
PO Box 1889

This will make sure that any correspondence we may send out will go to the right address.

Moving to another council area

If you are moving to another council area you can carry on using your badge until it is due to expire.

Twelve weeks before the expiry date you will need to apply for your badge again via your new council area, using your new address.

Changed vehicle

If you have changed your vehicle you don't need to inform us. As the Blue Badge can be used in any vehicle, we don't need to have a record of your new registration number.
