Blue Badge scheme for disabled parking

Blue Badge Scheme For Disabled Parking Panel

A Blue Badge allows people with severe mobility problems caused by visible and non-visible disabilities to access goods and services, by allowing them to park closer to where they need to go. The scheme is open to eligible people who travel as a driver or as a passenger.

Visit GOV.UK for more information on who may qualify for a Blue Badge. 
 

Apply for or renew a Blue Badge

You can apply for a Blue Badge for yourself, someone else or on behalf of an organisation.

The Blue Badge issue fee is £10. Payment can be made when completing the online application. The fee will be refunded if your application is not successful.

It can take up to 12 weeks for you to receive your badge, once all required evidence and information has been received in full.

Report a lost or stolen Blue Badge

If your Blue Badge is stolen you first need to report it to the police by calling 101. A replacement badge cannot be issued without a crime reference number.

A replacement badge replaces the lost, stolen or damaged badge, as such will display the same photograph and expiry date.

There is a £10 fee for a replacement badge. We will contact you for this payment once your request has been approved. Your replacement badge will then be issued within 10 working days.

As soon as you report your Blue Badge as lost, stolen or damaged we will cancel the badge. Using a cancelled badge may result in a parking fine.

Hidden disabilities

The Department for Transport (DfT) has announced that some people with hidden disabilities, including autism and mental health conditions, will be able to apply for a Blue Badge. We will publish full details of the new criteria once these have been finalised by the DfT. If you believe you may be eligible under the new scheme please do not apply yet. Any applications made before the new criteria are introduced will be assessed against the current criteria. We are not able to hold or defer applications.

More information about hidden disabilities is available on the DfT website.

For more information about Blue Badge applications in Plymouth please call 01752 668000 or email bluebadge@plymouth.gov.uk.
