Blue Badge disabled parking scheme (NHS Choices)

Blue Badge disabled parking scheme

If you have severe mobility problems that make using public transport difficult, you may be able to get a "Blue Badge" parking permit for your car. This lets you park closer to places you wish to visit, such as in marked disabled parking bays.

You may also be able to:

  • park for free within certain time limits in some places 
  • park on single and double yellow lines 
  • stay longer in on-street time-limited parking bays

Blue Badge schemes are run by councils, and most will let you apply for a Blue Badge online
