Blue disabled parking badges

What does it do?

 A blue badge does entitle you to use spaces reserved for disabled people in council car parks. For further details pick up the Government booklet "The Blue Badge Scheme", from any of our Customer Service Centres.

Who it is for?

Individuals can qualify for a blue badge if they meet strict criteria. To qualify you must meet at least one of the following requirements:

If you receive the higher rate of the mobility component of the Disability Living allowance

If you use a motor vehicle supplied by the Department of Social Security, or are in receipt of a grant to provide a motor vehicle

If you are registered blind

If you receive a mobility supplement to a military pension

If you drive a motor vehicle regularly, have a severe disability in both upper limbs, and are unable to turn the steering wheel by hand, even if the wheel is fitted a steering knob

If you have a substantial disability which causes inability to walk or very considerable difficulty in walking

If it is unclear whether or not you qualify, we may need to ask your doctor, in confidence, for their opinion.
