Blue Badge parking

Blue Badge "advice" warning

Some private websites charge a fee for advice and help with applications for a Blue Badge. These websites are not connected with us or the government, and do not guarantee a successful application. If you've been affected by a private website that has charged you a fee, you should report it to the Citizens Advice consumer service.

We advise residents simply to follow the advice and links here on our website.

Government secure services – 22-25 October

From 8:45pm, Friday 22 October until 7:30am, Monday 25 October, due to essential maintenance, we will be unable to process Blue Badge parking applications and 'Tell us once' reports of changes in personal circumstances.

Please do not try to use these services during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Renewing your Blue Badge

You must apply to renew your Blue Badge before it expires.

We suggest you apply 2 months before your current Blue Badge is due to expire.

The cost of a Blue Badge renewal is £10. You will only be charged for this if your renewal application is successful.

You should apply online to renew your Blue Badge via the government's GOV.UK website.
