Who is Eligible for a Blue Badge?
The Blue Badge scheme enables people who meet the eligibility criteria to maximise their independence by improving their access to services and facilities. They can be the driver or a passenger.
A person does not have to drive to apply for a Blue Badge. The Badge is for an individual and it can be used for any car when that person is a passenger.
Blue Badges are free for individuals although organisations will be charged £10.00.
If you believe that your Badge has been stolen you should report this to the Police and ask for a Crime Reference Number. If you have a Crime Reference Number you will not be charged for a replacement badge.
Replacements for lost badges or stolen Badges without a Crime Reference Number will be charged £10.00.
