The Blue Badge Scheme (BBS) entitles disabled drivers and passengers to parking concessions.
A blue badge permits drivers to park:
- On single or double yellow lines as long as it is safe to do so and there are no restrictions on loading or unloading
- In public on-street parking places
- In some private car parks
Eligibility and Applying
If you're disabled or have a health condition that affects your mobility, you can apply for a Blue Badge. You can also apply if you care for a child with a health condition that affects their mobility. You will need to check eligibility and complete an application form. Paper application forms are available from your local Health and Social Care Partnership office.
