Legislation changes - 30 August
New Blue Badge legislation changes came into effect on 30 August. This means it may take us longer than usual to process Blue Badge applications.
What is a blue badge?
Blue Badge permits provide parking concessions if you have severe mobility problems and have difficulty using public transport. Blue Badge holders can either be the driver or the passenger of a vehicle they are travelling in.
Rights and responsibilities
The Department for Transport has developed a useful guide for Blue Badge holders. It explains your responsibilities as a badge holder as well as how to display the badge and when you need to use a parking clock.
