The Council is continuing to process Blue Badge applications at present, however due to the quickly changing situation we cannot guarantee to process these in the normal timescales.
Any applications which are subject to further assessment and require an independent mobility assessment will not be able to be processed at this time. These require a face to face meeting with our occupational therapist and these assessments will only resume when the current restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so.
We would ask that all applicants are patient in these difficult times and to avoid contacting the Council to discuss your application at this time.
The scheme is designed to help disabled people who have severe mobility problems lead independent lives by knowing that when they reach a destination, either as a driver or passenger, that they will be able to park near to a venue and therefore have easier access to the services they want to use. It isn’t to provide free parking.
The Blue Badge parking concessions only allow badge holders to park on street. They don’t apply to off street privately operated car parks, such as supermarket car parks or on privately owned roads, such as those you find at airports. There may, however be special concessions for badge holders in these areas and you should check for signs detailing these. It allows on street, free parking without time restriction, where it is safe to do so.
The advantages of applying online:
Applicants should be aware that non-affiliated websites exist and charge fees of up to £49 for assistance. These are not associated with the Blue Badge Scheme.
You can also contact us using the details below to ask us to send an application form to you.
