Blue Badge scheme

COVID-19 update – Blue Badge enforcement

  • In line with government guidance and service impacts on issuing and renewing blue badges, penalty charge notices (PCNs) will not be issued to residents displaying blue badges with an expiry date of 1 January 2020 onwards.
  • The relaxation of enforcement will remain in place until 30 September 2020. Residents needing to renew their badges can apply online and avoid delay.
  • Please note – enforcement against other types of blue badge misuse or parking where blue badges are not valid will continue.

Blue Badge scheme

The scheme helps you park closer to your destination if you have major difficulty walking because of permanent or serious condition, or if you’re terminally ill and have been issued with a DS1500 form. An organisation can apply for a Blue Badge if it’s involved in the care of physically disabled people and uses a company vehicle to carry clients.

We’re aware of ‘copy cat’ websites offering to provide Blue Badges at an additional cost. You can only apply or renew your Blue Badge from the Local Authority or GOV.UK.

If you think you’ve been scammed please report it to Citizens Advice.
