Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge scheme provides parking concessions for people with disabilities who travel either as drivers or passengers. The scheme applies to:

  • People with severe walking difficulties
  • People with very severe upper limb disabilities who regularly drive a vehicle but cannot turn a steering wheel by hand
  • People who are registered blind
  • People who receive a mobility allowance, higher rate of the mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance or PIP

The badge costs £10 and allows badge holders to park close to their destinations as well as in designated disabled parking bays. The Council provides a number of disabled badge holder parking bays within the Town Centre.
