The Blue Badge Scheme
The Blue Badge scheme is a national scheme designed to provide parking concessions for eligible people to park close to the facilities and services they need to use, so as to improve their lifestyle, independence and freedom of choice.
You can apply for a Blue Badge yourself, or a relative can apply on your behalf.
A person does not have to drive to apply for a blue badge. The badge is for the individual and can be used in any car the individual is travelling in, as a driver or a passenger.
You need to make a new application for a Blue Badge every 3 years or before the expiry date if sooner. It will not be renewed automatically
You are welcome to make an application or renewal online: www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge
