The Blue Badge scheme is for drivers or passengers who have severe mobility problems or are registered blind. The scheme allows people to park near to where they need to go. Adults, children and some organisations may be eligible.
People who qualify can use disabled parking bays and benefit from a range of on-street parking concessions. Parking is not always free or unlimited for Blue Badge holders, so be aware of local parking arrangements in the areas you are travelling to. Blue Badges do not give you the authority to park anywhere.
Reporting fraudulent use
We now have a dedicated fraud investigation officer who you can contact directly to report allegations of misuse, please e mail email@example.com including as much detail as possible including the badge serial number.
