Blue Badge Parking Scheme

The "blue badge" parking scheme provides a permit for people with mobility problems to park close to where they need to go. People with hidden disabilities, including autism and severe mental health conditions, are now able to apply for a Blue Badge.

Permit holders may:

  • Park in any council-run pay and display car parks (charges apply).
  • Use on-street parking bays free of charge.
  • Stay up to three hours on a yellow line (except where loading restrictions are in place - indicated by kerb marks).

A blue badge parking permit costs £10. Lost or replacement badges are also £10. Stolen badges will be replaced free of charge upon production of a crime number.
