Blue Badges

New legislation which extends the Blue Badge Scheme to people with hidden and non-physical disabilities, comes into effect on 30 August 2019.

Anyone applying under that category must wait until 30 August 2019 to apply.

3. Payment for a Blue Badge

Blue Badges cost £10.

We will only charge you if your application is successful.

If successful, we will contact you, by letter or telephone to make a payment. We will not issue your badge until we have received payment.

We will only issue a refund if we have taken payment in error. Returns or cancellations are not accepted.

Blue badge scam

Please be aware of Blue Badge scam websites. They usually charge more than £10 (usually £49) for an application. However, this won’t guarantee that we will issue a Blue Badge to you.

These websites are not associated with the Blue Badge Service. The application form supplied by these websites is not accepted by local authorities.
