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.
From Monday 28 April 2014, charges for Blue Badge holders will apply in Stockton Council car parks across the Borough where parking charges are applicable.
There will be a 'permitted overstay' concession for those displaying a valid Blue Badge whether in a disabled bay or a general bay, the time on the ticket will be allowed to over-run in the Council’s short stay car parks by one hour if a valid Blue Badge is correctly displayed.
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.
